Monday’s Masterpiece – floaty and light

So there’s this image that I haven’t been 100% able to get out of my head for about 18 months now, so imagine my delight when I actually managed to find out who created this bonkers amazing dining room over the weekend: Alina Apteker.  She’s the Creative Director of Longwood Living, an interior design firm that also dabbles in event design through its sister company Longwood Events.

Just take a look at this space and tell me your jaw isn’t on the floor, I dare you…  The combo of floaty drapes / antique elaborate chandie / dark moody walls / cowskin rug is simply BANANAS.

And I’ve seen this hallway many times before also – LOOOOVE the zebra runner, but am not sure about the floral situation going on downstairs.

Her glamourama living room – totally enamoured with all the different textures playing off of one another:

And a neutral-yet-fun kitchen – just take a look at all the quirky elements we have here: amazeballs pendants, fun wallpapered worktop / skylight, and are those metallic legs on the main island??!  She’s a genius.

Quite a cool idea for the loo…

But I have to say the master bedroom is where it all goes wrong.  So this little alcove is pretty cool – I quite like the 360 animal fur look – but the rest is not really my cup of tea.

But moving on to more of her gorgeous interiors, here are some of the event spaces she’s created for Longwood Events.  I think these pics are all from the State Room in Boston, Belle Mer in Newport and Wychmere in Cape Cod.

Bet it costs a pretty penny to hold your wedding at one of these venues, but man oh man they’re pretty…
