The Fashion Magpie Derek Blasburg Apartment

Derek Blasberg’s Apartment (ZOMG).

I am literally dying over Derek Blasberg’s UES Manhattan apartment and especially the prominence of the French blue color throughout his elegant but masculine home. Below, a few of my favorite finds for nailing the look:

+Farrow & Ball Cook’s Blue paint — the exact color he’s used in select rooms in his home.

+Blue swirl planter.

+Border frame shams.

+Gold etagere.

+Blue velvet sectional. Or this, in green velvet, similar to the one in his living room.

+Matouk Cairo towels (I own these ones in the azure blue!)

+Degaulle table lamp (<<so chic and under $150).

+Kohler faucet in gold. Love this clean, modern style.

+Bathroom vanity lighting.

+Harlow table lamp.

+Daybed of my dreams.

+Gold bamboo cutlery.

+French blue upholstered bench.

+Windowpane duvet cover.

+Ceramic stool.

+French blue rug.

+Gold inlay room divider. Love the way he’s added dimension to his bedroom by placing one of these against the far wall!

+Splatter lamp.

P.S. Some of my favorite interior design books, for when I’m hunting around for inspiration: The Things That Matter, Domino, and Design Sponge. All feature livable but stunning style tricks and treatments.

P.P.S. The best of everything: home edition.

P.P.P.S. More home discoveries.


  1. I, too, died over this apartment when I saw it on Arch Digest! LOVE the playful aspects they infused into such a classic, traditional space.

    I have given both the Domino and Design*Sponge books as gifts numerous times — love that you included them here! xo

    1. SO CHIC! I basically want to re-do everything in my apartment. AHH. Mr. Magpie and I were just chatting about reupholstering our couch and I was like — BLUE EVERYTHING!
