The Last Piece of my NYC Apartment!




My NYC apartment is officially sold, but New York Social Diary got the last good-bye images. Check out the full story and interview here. I spent a crazy last week in NY. Two days packing everything up and then directly to my opening show at CLIC. Although a tad bittersweet, it is refreshing and cathartic to move forward. I lived in this apartment for 13 years. Started LULU DK in what became the babies room, painted and wrote my entire book LULU on the floor of my kitchen here...Wrote long love and break up letters to my now husband, experienced the passing of both my parents, organized my wedding...laughed, cried and had same GREAT parties here! So good-bye walls, floors and ceilings that sheltered me for all my growing years....and thank you Social Diary for being the last to capture the moment.

  2. It was a beautiful apartment filled with personality. I love the combination of fabrics, wall treatments, artwork and eclectic furniture. I always feel as sad as it is to leave a home, its equally exciting to start fresh in a new space. I can only imagine your next place will be even more wonderful.

  3. Lulu,

    Your apartment featured on the cover of Elle Decor circa 1999 (you were wearing a long skirt and tube top) was my all time favorite read in college. I loved it so much, I still have that issue in my home decor mag library today. As a blooming artist at the time, you inspired me immensely, and I wanted to be just like you. Your apartment was my dream apartment for my 20s. Thanks for sharing these favorite pics of mine again, I just got a little nostalgic too.

    xoxo,
    Vanessa
