DESIGN IN MANHATTAN

When photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank walked into her boyfriend’s Manhattan apartment, she didn’t know that she would be engaged to him in ten months, nor did she know that her future mother-in-law would be Cynthia Frank, Elle Décor’s contributing editor at large! They immediately became friends, and Frank helped Swanson design the interior.

Claiborne had grown up in beautiful homes designed by her godfather, the uber talented Thomas Britt.   She had a few good pieces of art to add to an eclectic mix found while visiting some of the best auction houses, vintage shops, and flea markets.  After three years, the couple’s home has evolved into a comfortable, relaxed and chic home.  ENJOY!

Teresa, so sorry you're sick. I hope you have someone bringing you some chicken soup and fluffing your pillows.

I love this project. That dining room with the bold art and those trees really stands out. Love the color too. Get better soon!
