Ballerinas have such grace, calmness and elegance to their bodily movements and personally have always been mesmerized by the dreamy costumes. Today, step inside a ballerina’s (and pianist) Manhattan apartment, designed by 25 year old Sasha Bikoff. With travels and years spent in Paris and Miami, and now residing in New York City herself, it is no wonder she was able to inspirit her client’s creative life to create a “closet de curiosities.” There is old world luxury drawn from 1970’s glamour and 1950’s nostaslgia and don’t you just love the way Bikoff crafted an artfully antique, yet elegantly modern space? Bikoff’s flawless mixing of patterns results is undeniable, as seen in the foyer and master bedroom, covered in hand-painted de Gournay wallpapers.
I am always incorporating foliage and leaves in my spaces because it creates a certain exoticism, as if you are entering another world. – Sasha Bikoff
Speaking of which, am personally captivated by the room above, the regal canopy bed composed with restful lavender makes this so grand! Photos: Domaine Eternally, Rosie
