Designer Watch: Alex Papachristidis

Elle Decor recently did a feature on the 
Manhattan apartment of designer Alex Papachristidis, 
and I was pretty taken to say the least! 

AP's home was full of layers, patterns 
and saturated jewel tones - 
everything I absolutely adore!! 

I was particularly taken with his bedroom in part 
because of the Sandberg Raphael wall covering 
- one of my recent faves - 
and also because of the brilliant use of patterns 
and its unabashed boldness!

Sandberg Wallpaper: Raphael

I also love his canopied front entrance upholstered 
in a striped linen, and I have a crazy soft spot 
for all ebonized etageres/bookshelves, and 
this chinoiserie etagere certainly 
doesn't disappoint - stu--nning!!!

And AP is every bit as bold with his 
use of art as he is with his interiors!! 

While some of his spaces exude a sense of 
formality or staidness, this is completely 
offset by his choice of art. 

Talk about unexpected!!

And the sculpture in this next photo has been a 
fascination of mine for some time. 

Only recently did I realize 
that it is from the Papachristidis family 
retreat in the Hamptons - of course it is ;).

Ugo Rondinone Tree Sculpture

And this larger than life bronze beauty 
graces the premises as well. 

Claude Lalanne’s bronze Pomme

AP's the Age of Elegance out on bookstands - 
and I for one would like to see some more!

Happy Wednesday friends!!



  1. The white tree in the garden at the Hamptons is certainly an unusual yet very beautiful piece of sculpture. I knew it looked familiar until I realised that yes, it is the White Tree of Gondor, from the Lord of the Rings!

  2. It is called "Get up Girl " by Ugo Rondinone

  3. While some women like to have simple watches, others like to have stylish and unique watches. Every woman loves to have the best watch that would impart her personality a stylish look. Undoubtedly stylish watches compliment a woman's personality and style, so get a stylish watch now. Watches for men and women
