Believe it or not, I discovered interior photographer Oberto Gili through Anthropologie. I was trolling their site (as usual) and saw Oberto’s new book for sale – I had to find out who this man was. A quick google search led me to this lovely tour of his West Village apartment on NYSD. I can’t say that I would want to adopt the entire space as my own, but I find inspiration in the details. Those beautiful steel shelves, a gift from Hamish Bowles, make me want to kick my penchant for ikea bookcases to the curb. I love Oberto's ability to effortlessly mix different patterns and textures and the fact that he’s OK with stacks and stacks of books and little knick knacks scattered about (so long as they’re arranged to please). Home Sweet Home is on my wish list, but I guess these photos will have to do for now. Which really isn’t all too bad... there’s so much to look it, I don’t think I’ll tire of it for awhile :)
P.S. Is it just me, or does his apartment have
the same feel as Ms. Chloe Sevigny's old pad..?
