Anna Sui et Un Peu de Magie Noir.

Do you ever watch Man Shops Globe on the Sundance Channel?
It details the adventures and sourcing methods of Keith Johnson
  (a buyer for Anthropologie - can you say DREAM JOB) 
as he searches for artisians around the world who make goods Anthro- style:
authentic materials re-thought into innovative crafts.
Imagine going shopping with someone who has an incredible eye and vision -
 to markets all over the world!




I record them all, and usually watch each episode a few times.. living vicariously :)

Last night I caught the trip to Syria with Anna Sui.
While the trip to Syria was fascinating, I was google-eyed over Anna Sui's Manhattan apartment.
It was featured in Elle Decor last year.




At one point in the episode, Anna says to Keith, "When in doubt, go Black."
I share that philosophy.
Every time we move I try to reduce the amount of black we have present in our home,
 and it always creeps back in... nothing compares in richness and drama.
Gorgeous chinoiserie paper from Stark sets the tone..




Anna's living room is black perfection.
Anna and Keith were discussing their shared love of inlaid furniture,
 here her spectactular chest serves as a perch for a peacock!
So much pattern, balanced by the glossy black floor,
and I love the way layers of mirror bounce light around the room.




so completely chic.
This tiny, charming kitchen showcases Anna's china,
which she discusses in linked article on entertaining.




At first glance I though this was a hall vignette :)
This bathroom could host a cocktail party.
Glossy black, and LOOK at those floors, the sconces.. the chandelier!




That room I was most curious to see, Anna Sui's closet.
Can you imagine the treasures?
She travels quite frequently for inspiration, and was showing Keith some of her finds - 
embroidered boots from Uzbekistan..
all showcased brilliantly in this space, which looks like a little french boutique.

Anna's space is sultry black, black enchanted.
Have you, too succumbed to un peu de magie noir?

OMG ... I forgot about this show. I had such a hard time finding the episodes to watch as i don't get this channel at all. But you just reminded me to pursue it some more. Anna's place is to die for and I've always loved a little black myself, instant sophistication! GREAT post Anne-Marie!

gorgeous! The tiles in that bathroom are so fabulous. I wouldn't expect anything less from Anna Sui, and love how her house reflects her perfume packaging!
