Today, A-Gent of Style would like to introduce you to his new designer crush and rising star of design, Sasha Bikoff. A few days ago, Domaine, the brilliant American online design site, revealed the latest and beautifully curated project of the precociously talented 25-year-old American designer, a 4700-square-foot apartment in Manhattan iconic Dakota building on the Upper West Side.

Similarly to Nicky Haslam’s new London apartment featured here last week, Bikoff’s total renovation for her client’s new abode is permeated with a fascinating mix of eclectic styles, invigorating colour vibrancy (who wouldn’t want to wake up in a Ladurée-coloured jewel box?), a feminine and glamourous touch, and a bold, fresh and whimsical approach (“I think that people are very afraid to use color and opt for neutrals because it’s safe.” Bikoff says). Once again, there is no sense here of trying to impress and show off but simply a chic yet relaxed environment that captures the client’s personality and lifestyle. Ravishing bespoke hand-painted wallpapers by De Gournay and furniture and objets such as Milo Baughman cantilevered barrel chairs and a French bronze palm chandelier by Bagues, scoured and sourced from international antiques stores and auction sites such as 1st Dibs, rub shoulders and are happily juxtaposed next to less valuable pieces from retail design darlings like Chippendale armchairs from Jonathan Adler or a cotton rug by Madeline Weinrib.

A-Gent of Style was particularly taken by the intense royal blue lacquered walls of the study (see his retrospective here), the wonderfully happy colour combination of melon and mint green in the dining room (the green ikat-ey fabric on the settee is rather wonderful too), the malachite print echoed throughout the dressing room (brilliant use of electric blinds on the wardrobes), the ultimate elegant boudoir look of the master bedroom (a lilac scheme Hamish Bowles would most probably fall for) especially the verre eglomisé effect on the bed posters, the curved corners of the ceiling in the sitting room and the Moorish gold radiator grilles amongst others.
