The Simply Luxurious Life®: Candace Bushnell at Home

Candace Bushnell at Home

In homage to the creator of the frenzy that has overtaken so many of us this week, I’ve pulled together photos of author Candace Bushnell’s home in Manhattan. Located in Greenwich Village, Bushnell and her husband Charles Askegard purchased this 1920’s apartment which was originally built for well-to-do bachelors that were making their fortunes on Wall Street.  With the help of designer Susan Forristal, this apartment, which at its heart had good bones, underwent a complete renovation. 

A very eclectic style with appreciation of the space, her appreciation for unique furniture and tasteful, yet original combinations of accessories displays her creative eye.  The more I look at each room, the more I find I quite like it.  Have a look, I’m curious to know what you think. And if you’d like to read more of the article written by Ms. Bushnell herself for Elle Decor, click here.

But before you begin your tour, learn a bit about her country home in the Litchfield Hills in Connecticut.  A six room, 1 1/2 bath Colonial home in the country where she savors the quiet solitude and her friendly neighbors.  Read more about her country home here.

I've always loved that photo of her bookcase. So pretty. Although I think wallpapering your powder room with pictures of yourself may be a little much.

Her formal living room is totally my style. What a great mix of eclectic, modern and traditional. The french furniture is lovely.

So pretty – I love the personality and details that she has included throughout. You see her in every little nook and cranny of this home... from the luxurious chaise lounge to the wallpaper. Lovely.

Thanks for sharing :)
