"This is where the characters will cross paths; I'm sure there will be lots of parties in there," he says. "The van der Woodsen apartment is composed of clean, simple lines, shapes and rhythms. But in keeping with Upper East Side tradition, it is still very formal in its presentation and layout."

BUY ONLINE NOW Hudson sofa, Desiron, $2,850; at allmodernfurniture.com. 03 of 27 Red Wire Side Table Courtesy of Decorati.com The use of primary colors, including the Tucker Robbins footstool that sits between two custom-made Ralph Lauren chairs, fits into the primary-color palette. "I used red, blue and yellow to keep the palette simple," Weeks says. "These colors work with any of the art on the walls and keep the decor from becoming too muddled." BUY ONLINE NOW Wire pouf side table, Tucker Robbins, price upon request; at decorati.com. 04 of 27 Jessica Craig-Martin Art Courtesy of Artnet.com This piece sits on a wall just outside the kitchen. "Lilly is an art collector and the works she collects are bold and colorful," says Weeks, who decided to paint the walls with Benjamin Moore's Sandy Brown khaki-hued paint. (White doesn't work well on television.) "I picked a warm neutral color as the backdrop for the art." This artist is also part of the Art Production Fund. BUY ONLINE NOW Watermill Center Benefit Gala 2007 photograph, Jessica Craig-Martin, price upon request; at artnet.com. 05 of 27 Wall Sconce (Above Fireplace) Courtesy of Davidweeksstudio.com Weeks used "very clean lines" throughout, including the lighting above the fireplace by David Weeks Studio. This also fits with the overall feel of the apartment. "I wanted to introduce a third archetype in the modern high-rise," says Weeks, who juxtaposed this living space with the Waldorf's ornate Fifth Avenue penthouse and the Humphrey's warehouse loft in Brooklyn. BUY ONLINE NOW Sarus sconce, David Weeks studio, price upon request; at davidweeksstudio.com. 06 of 27 Wooden Boxes Courtesy of Barneys Are the somewhat masculine touches, like these handmade wood boxes by RampY Augousti, Bart Bass touches? Nope. "It's pure Lily van der Woodsen," says Weeks. "Lily started this without a husband in her life." BUY ONLINE NOW Python box, RampY Augousti, $130; at barneys.com. 07 of 27 Blue Lamps Courtesy of Velocity Art and Design The lamps on the end tables are from Center 44 in Manhattan.

BUY BLUE LAMPS Hanna blue grass table lamp, Seascape Lighting, $258; at velocityartanddesign.com. 08 of 27 Serena's Bedroom Jonny Valiant When it came to decorating Serena's bedroom, Loren Weeks wanted the space to reflect the teen's personality. "Her room shows a confident, eclectic mix of funky new and classic vintage items," says Weeks, who decorated with bold patterns and metallic accents. "I wanted it to express her character: effortlessly beautiful and self-assured."

BUY SILVER PILLOWS Marquis Pillow, Crate amp Barrel, $60; at crateandbarrel.com. 12 of 27 Marilyn Minter Artwork Courtesy of Artnet.com "We have a relationship with the Art Production Fund," says Weeks, who used artwork from artists tied to the organization, which is a non-profit devoted to exposing new audiences to contemporary art, to decorate the house. One such piece in Serena's room is the glittering eye on the wall by Marilyn Minter, who also created the piece at left. BUY MARILYN MINTER ART Sparkle photograph, Marilyn Minter, Contact Gallery for price; at artnet.com. 13 of 27 Bedside Table Courtesy of Anthropologie Weeks says that Lilly van der Woodsen would have shopped for vintage pieces at Center 44 in Manhattan and Stamford Antique Center in Connecticut, which is where she picked up the two ornate bedside chests in the bedroom. BUY A DECORATIVE CHEST Marcela dresser, Anthropologie, $1,498; at anthropologie.com. 14 of 27 Settee Courtesy of Jayson The fictional apartment is a high rise on the East Side, not too far from the Palace Hotel, where the van der Woodsens lived in the first season while their apartment was being renovated. "They're on the 35th floor approximately," says Weeks, which makes a settee by the window a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view. BUY A SETTEE Vintage gilt settee, Jayson Home amp Garden, $3,795; at jaysonhomeandgarden.com. 15 of 27 Amy Gartrell Artwork Courtesy of Artnet.com Another Art Production Fund artist featured in Serena's bedroom is Amy Gartrell, who created both the piece to the left and the bright one that hangs above the desk in the bedroom.

"It's made with translucent material and the walls are covered in boa skin," says Weeks. No walk-in for her? "Blair has a walk-in closet and we're trying to establish some differences between our characters," he says. BUY A FLOOR MIRROR Cheval mirror, Dolce, $180; at target.com. 18 of 27 Dining Room and Kitchen Jonny Valiant "The main living room, the kitchen, the dining room-they all flow together, but they're defined by columns and a change in the floor material," says Weeks, who loves the kitchen space. "It stands in sharp contrast to the traditional."

BUY A RED RUG Remy rug, Crate amp Barrel, $50 to $199; at crateandbarrel.com. 22 of 27 Red Bowl and Cookware Courtesy of Le Creuset Weeks also used primary colors in the kitchen-the red cookware (and tea kettle) in the kitchen are all by Le Creuset. The blue sliding doors, created by Poliform USA and painted with Benjamin Moore paint in Ol' Blue Eyes, "anchors the center of the set" by adding a solid, bold piece of color right in the middle of the open living space, says Weeks. BUY ONLINE NOW Item name, Le Creuset, $60; at cooking.com. 23 of 27 Home Office Jonny Valiant Lilly's work space at the base of the stairs is an eclectic mix of refined pieces (like her Louis-style desk) and avant-garde items (faux-cowhide rug). "She's a happening matron," says Weeks. "With this apartment, we see Lilly's rebellious, independent side re-emerge." Learn more about TV's most stylish show at CWTV.com and Watch Gossip Girl Mondays 8/7c on The CW. 24 of 27 Eames Chair Courtesy of Room & Board "The Eames-style lounge chair with the Missoni fabric was one of many inspired moves by our set decorator, Christina Tonkin," says Weeks. Many furniture pieces were covered in interesting fabrics-the top of the desk and desk chair, both from ABC Home in Manhattan, were upholstered in faux elephant hide. BUY ONLINE NOW Lounge Chair, Eames, $2,889; at roomandboard.com. 25 of 27 Cowhide Rug Courtesy of ABC Home The faux animal skin theme extends to this cowhide rug, also from ABC Home.
