BREAKFAST IN TIFFANY'S
The meeting of two New York institutions
From diamond rings to Holly Golightly pearls, we could live in Tiffany jewelry. But now we can actually live (or least stay) in the iconic brand, with a visit to the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel's new Tiffany suite.
Though it's tucked away inside the 100-year-old hotel, there's nothing shy or subtle about the suite itself, which is filled with elaborately carved molding and jewel-inspired furniture and is painted, of course, in classic Tiffany blue.
During our recent sneak peek (which you can preview here), we wandered from the foyer--the entry console mimics a classic engagement ring--into the airy living room, where we were met with marble mantles, plush deco chairs, a bar cart stocked with Tiffany crystal and to-die-for views of Fifth Avenue and Central Park.
Next we ambled into the gorgeous bedroom, replete with a blue-and-white-striped headboard and a grand mirrored vanity table.
The dining room is designed to look like the inside of a Tiffany box; its walls and ceiling are painted a stunning aquamarine, and a sparkling crystal chandelier serves as the crown jewel.
At $8,500 a night, the suite is hardly a steal. But for a special occasion (an upcoming anniversary, perhaps), it sure would make for a fabulous and extravagant getaway.
