The Way They Live (2)

Philip Gorrivan Design firm is known for its tailored and modern design, often using elements from the past, which evoke an eclectic, polished and chic style.

Here are some photos of his own apartment in NY where he lives with his wife and two school age children.

























Notes:
- I love his statement: "I think neatness is essential—it’s essential to life.’
- He speaks french (thanks to his Moroccan mum)
- He did not formally study design.
- He was named one of House & Garden’s “New Tastemakers of 2007".
Great interview on NYSD, photos J. Hirsch

This is a stunning home but I can't imagine small children living here - I would be a nervous wreck with my boys in this house! Tracey x
