New York Social Diary has a great feature and house tour on textile designer Lulu deKwiatkowski and her Upper East Side home which she recently sold and will soon be moving out of. She’s been living in LA for the past three years and finally decided to relinquish her NYC apartment which she has owned for the past 13 years. de Kwiatkowski wrote a poignant and personal love letter to her apartment on her blog which really struck me so I thought I’d share it here…
“I lived in this apartment for 13 years. Started LULU DK in what became the babies room, painted and wrote my entire book LULU on the floor of my kitchen here…Wrote long love and break up letters to my now husband, experienced the passing of both my parents, organized my wedding…laughed, cried and had same GREAT parties here! So good-bye walls, floors and ceilings that sheltered me for all my growing years….and thank you Social Diary for being the last to capture the moment.”

Just after the Celerie Kemble cover story, you’ll find me and my top 10 style picks on page 257 as the magazine’s grand finale “Blogger Style” feature! This issue also marks Lonny’s 1 year anniversary and I have to say, its the magazine’s best issue yet! The Lonny team pulled out all the stops in celebration of its 1st birthday, bringing us inspiring interiors from design stars like cover girl Celerie Kemble, Lulu deKwiatkowski, Ruthie Sommers, Palmer Weiss, John Robshaw, Eddie Ross and more. Congratulations to Michelle, Patrick and the entire Lonny team for an amazing issue and all of your success during your first year! And a huge thanks to Michelle, Ellie, Shawn and Isa for including me in this issue and working to produce such a fabulous story that I am extremely proud of!

Artist and textile designer Lulu deKwiatkowski’s chic Upper East Side apartment is for sale and it can be yours for a cool $1,999,000! The prewar two bedroom apartment which has been featured in publications like Elle Decor and the now defunct House & Garden and Domino, features a spacious open layout and unique details like Moroccan style archways and built-in bookshelves. deKwiatkowski recently took to her blog to spread the word:
“Great doorman building on 64th Street between Park and Lexington. Two bedrooms, huge kitchen, terrace and loft-like living room all re-constructed by me. Asking 1.999. I have lived and grown, developed my company, painted every collage on the floor of my kitchen here in this apartment for the last 14 years. I loved every day of wonderful solitude in this magical space. I leave only good vibes, which is oh so important in a home. In any case, feel free to contact me if you are truly interested.”
