Modern Soul – Timeless Heart

It has been noted that nothing is random. I keep thinking this must be the true after being attracted to writer and New York Times best-selling author Derek Blasberg. I discovered Derek through Instagram only to realize he was the owner of my design inspiration found in the most recent Architectural Digest.

The article coincides with his Insta-image and contagious enthusiasm about life. A youngish man originally from Missouri who has adopted the hometown spirit of a tried and true Manhattanite. Reading about his journey most locals can relate to his unimaginable real estate adventures. After many years of the trials and tribulations of renting, he has chosen the loyal upper east side for his first grown-up home. 

The 1920’s pre-war edifice shares the landmarked aesthetic of the hoods surroundings.  The off-market find was reincarnated by Virginia Tupker and architects Yaiza Armbruster and Maria Dayton.  The time-honored treasure was transformed into a newer better version of its best self. The residence includes the glamour of a gossip room and the thrill of a secret door.  These unique additions along with an outstanding art collection, one-of-a-kind furnishings, and a Dachshund named Monster give the house a playful distinctiveness.

Overall, the images below represent Derek’s colorful full of life personal style. He is a welcomed addition to a longstanding uptown culture that has a timeless heart and a modern soul.

Forever Chic!
