If there was ever a modern blueprint for a preppy home with masculine overtones, it would likely be Michael Bastian’s downtown New York City apartment. He is one of my living style icons (Sid Mashburn being the other). I met Michael at his Gant by Michael Bastian show last week. A gentleman indeed—a humble one at that. And though we are only afforded a sliver of Bastian’s abode in March’s Esquire, creams and cool blues pair with warm mahogany, lamps and aged golden picture frames to create a charming living space. It is a modern take on classic prep style similar to that navy double breasted blazer.
