Nick Olsen in House Beautiful!

I was very excited to see that Emily Evans Eerdmans had posted about designer Nick Olsen.  Nick is a protege' of Miles Redd- and I found this entry hall Nick created to be something I could really fall for-

New York, New York, it's a hell of a town!  (see the current issue of House Beautiful)
Congratulations to Nick- he deserves this coverage- and we wish him all the luck and success in the world! Nick Olsen has created Manhattan magic in a 1,000 square foot one bedroom apartment.
The visual excitement of this flat is something else.  The photography is very good also!  The painted stripes on the living room walls reminded me of what Albert had done for his young friend, the model Robert Yoh- only with black stripes.  Ditto the bright violet leather on the open arm chair. So, what do YOU think of this entry hall?  I love it!  I feel that all the strong colour can make up for those very long, dreary winters that many New Yorkers are forced to endure.  Kudos to Nick Olsen!  Congrats!
