I have long been obsessed with Sofia Coppola's NoLita apartment ever since I saw the picture below in House & Garden. I think it is the blue George Smith sofa that really did it for me. Well the place is now on the market for a cool $2.75 million, looking is always free.

I was surprised that for two million and change, the living room is on the small side (furniture wise). It only has two sofas and nary a side chair or ottoman to round things out. I guess when you are Sofia Coppola and are busy directing acclaimed movies like The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette and Lost in Translation, your not too focused on your seating arrangement.
A shot from across the room shows how open the whole living space is. I'm not a huge fan of open kitchens but I like how this one does not overwhelm the space and sort of blends in on the side.
A few months back I made this collage while trying to drum up apartment ideas. It sort of captures SC's decorating sensibility with a little of me thrown in for good measure.
