Every weekend I look forward to reading Page Six Magazine which is a special insert that comes with the Saturday edition of The New York Post. There’s a section in the magazine called Six Life which covers food, health, and best of all home! They always provide a glimpse into the homes of stylish New Yorkers and this week they profiled mother-daughter design duo Robyn and Sara Karp of Robyn Karp Interiors. Sara, who is 26, joined her mom’s interior design firm three years ago after working briefly for Robert Alpert Associates and Victoria Hagan Interiors. Robyn lives in a classic six on the Upper West Side while Sara lives in an apartment on the Upper East Side. They’re both obsessed with art and their personal style blends together old and new although Robyn is the one with the more modern taste while her daughter’s taste is a bit more traditional. I thought their story was so cute and it sounds like the pair has such a great relationship. They’ve been reading magazines like Architectural Digest and House & Garden together since Sara was 4, love traveling to Paris together to visit the flea markets and they play tennis together every Sunday. Sounds perfect although Robyn mentioned in the piece that she’s had to fire her daughter twice which I thought was hilarious. I really enjoyed reading this article so I thought I’d share a bit of the story with all of you who may not have access to the New York Post. Below are a few photos of Robyn and Sara’s apartments which were included in the article, starting with Robyn’s…
Robyn’s apartment is very feminine and sophisticated. I love the rich brown sofas combined with the mirrored tables in her living room. And I love the giant photo of Marilyn Monroe. The middle photo shows various vignettes in her home. On the right are a collection of glass vases on top of a mirrored table…all were found at flea markets or auctions. The next two photos are of the master bedroom. The gray lacquered bedside tables that you see were inherited from Robyn’s grandmother. I also adore that purple tufted chair with the ikat accent pillow. The bottom photo shows her home’s entry. The painting’s sheer size adds a lot of drama here. The article didn’t show many photos of Sara’s place but here are the two that were included…
I browsed through their portfolio online and found better photos of Sara’s living room and Robyn’s entry. It looks like the side chair in the shot of Sara’s living room below is different than the one pictured in Page Six.
Here are a few more rooms I saw in their portfolio that really stood out to me. The child’s bedroom is especially cute. Hope you enjoy! If you want to see more, visit the Robyn Karp Interiors website here.
