Spring Cleaning Week

Moving right along, we have here another modest (yeah, right) Manhattan abode of Brazilian fashion designer Carlos Miele featured in the October 2007 edition of Elle Decor. And when I say modest, I mean ginormous triplex.

According to Miele, all he wanted was a place to admire his two favorite things in the world - sky and water. You and me both, brother. And the floor-to-ceiling windows aren't too shabby either, to which he adds, "I love the idea of sunset on three floors". As do I, Carlos, as do I...

I'm in love with this dining area. The chartreuse chairs, the 1970's mid-century modern Albrizzi table mixed with the aqua blue? Fuggedaboutit.

Miele's study... is that a freakin' Noguchi coffee table I see and if so, why does it seems everyone has one but me?!? It's just like that whole babies and car phenomena...

Okay, this is this photo out of the entire spread which made my heart go boom, boom, boom, boom! Arctic blue colored rug adorned with vintage arm chairs...and I'm not sure why, but I would totally love that large silver pillar in my house. On the back wall is a piece titled Dancers, a collaborative piece by Miele and architect Hani Rashid. If anyone happens to come across a close-up of this on-line, please let me know!

No. More. Zebra. Rugs. Period. Stop. The. Madness.

Da-yum! Dude had an amazing art collection.

*jealous much, Raina?*

Um, yes.

I'd be happy with just sky.

But those chartreuse chairs are pretty awesome.

I have this stupid post in the middle of my kitchen, and I now realize it should be covered in ultra shiny chrome.

How would one go about doing such a thing?
