Interior decorating is not my forte, but I do know what I like. And I buy what I like and then make it work in my home. Three stories this week seem to follow this same idea. Many of the objects in these homes are collected and loved by the owners, and whether the pieces “work” with the rest of the decor seems less important. Mixing objects from one’s personal history with things they love, feels right to me.
Vogue.com has a great story on Patricia Herrera Lansing’s apartment. Two very different style sensibilities, Patricia’s and her husband’s, are blended together and the outcome is an amazing and very livable space.
Tom Delavan, formerly of Domino magazine, in his brownstone filled with objects from his “Ice Storm” era upbringing in Connecticut. I love the mix of modern and inherited in this NYT’s profile.
In another fab NYT’s home piece, Peter Poulos, who lives in Athens, sums up his decorating style best when he says, “these objects choose me as much as I choose them”.
