during the holidays, i noticed many people on twitter mentioning that they were catching up with their favorite shows like downtown abbey (does anyone watch this?), mad men, and gray's anatomy (i'm two seasons behind). while i was making various christmas creations, i caught up with my own guilty pleasure that is gossip girl. i was about a season and a half behind (i'm almost caught up). every time i indulge in gossip girl, i'm left wondering who does the set design because it's all really good. (i'm also left wondering if chuck and blair will ever be together. but, i digress...) i did a little google search (ah, google, what would we do without you?) and discovered it's christina tonkin interiors. go take a peek at her portfolio, if you can. if you need more convincing, she also did the set design for sex in the city. do you ever watch your favorite movie or television show and get lost in the interior/set design?
in addition to my stripe addiction, i have a minor obsession with chairs. mid-century is my favorite, but i will happily accept a chair from any period. gossip girl fulfills my chair love, for certain. (does anyone know who makes that black armchair in the last photo? google turned up nothing.) along with amazing furniture, the art selection is also pretty spectacular with a mixture of pop, photorealism, abstract, 3d installations, and photography. all around a good guilty pleasure. what's yours?
