an artist’s manhattan atelier.

the october issue of lonny magazine is online and i particularly fell for the manhattan atelier apartment of painter mary nelson sinclair. i love her eclectic and colorful mix of artwork and collected treasures — she’s taken advantage of every nook, creating interesting vignettes to draw your attention, but nothing looks fussy. the space doubles as her atelier, with her canvases and scraps of inspiration displayed beautifully around the apartment. have a look at this month’s lonny for the whole tour, as well as a whole slew of other inspiring decor ideas.

  2. What I love about this apartment is the ‘realness’ of it. It appears to be filled with collectibles from a life well-traveled. You can’t fact that.

      oh, i’m not sure – these are images from the magazine. but i’ve seen people use double-stick velcro tape – adhering the fabric to the base of the sink.
