Ashley Stark’s apartment, located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, was featured in Elle Decor‘s December 2011 issue. Ashley’s family owns the ‘Stark Carpet‘ home furnishing empire and she currently serves as its creative director. Her beautiful prewar apartment has a gracious layout and great bones, although her personal design taste is far from most of those who live in these traditional spaces in New York. All of the rooms within this glamorous apartment have a mix of traditional and modern furniture pieces with small pops of colour and touches of whimsy to create a unique design aesthetic.
Ashley definitely has an eye for amazing light fixtures, from the Jean De Merry fixture in the dining room to the Modulightor in the foyer – I want them all! I also love her ‘tiffany box blue’ dressing room, a similar colour would be Benjamin Moore: San Clemente Teal (730).
