Sandra Nunnerley

Sandra gazes out her living room window.
I know this name will not ring a bell to some people, but I found that she a goddess in interior design. “I have a lot of god's and goddesses ;-)” The list is as long as twice around the globe. But I will share this with you every time I can.

Sandra’s desk and a chieftain chair from Ethiopia. The hall installation “Brancusi’s Dealer” is by artist Richard Pettibone.

Some fact's here.
She grew up in New Zealand and studied architecture in Australia, but established herself here in the 1980s. She's an architect and also an interiordesigner. For more technical info you can visit her website.

“Bad day for Meth Lab #3 and #4” by Kelly McLane dominates the wall of Sandra’s cozy study. The custom sofa doubles as a guest bed when needed.
And like I am very fond of nice pictures I will share with you the pic's of her new New York appartment.
A 1987 Richard Serra painting “My Curves Are Not Mad”, makes a bold statement in the living room.
A view into the foyer. The low curved side table from the 1970s is made out of eggshell and lacquer. “Crying” and “Licking Lips” by photographer Morton Bartlett, hang above a Louis XIVth style table in the entrance foyer.
A close up of the beechwood base of the Louis XIV-style foyer table.
A 1920s Senufo guardian bird figure from the Ivory Coast keeps watch over Sandra’s home. In the background, a print by Italian artist Alberto Magnelli.
A handsome Maison Jansen 1940s black lacquer and steel dining table stands in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room.
A crystal ball sits atop a 19th century gilt bronze stand in the entry foyer.
Sheepskin scatter rugs soften the lines in the bedroom. To bring light into the room, Sandra opened up a solid back wall with a set of French doors.
A beveled-glass 1950s “Sunburst” mirror by Tommy Parzinger hangs above a Biedermeier chest in the bedroom.
A charming gilt mirror sits atop a marble top Guerdon table in the master bedroom.

Sandra’s walk-in closet.
If this isn't a wonderfull place to stay, you just would want to work from home if you had this :-)
