Happy Times

The wind is blowing off the Sound with a fury. When stuck inside during the cold months, I start thinking about how to make my home cozier. These pictures of Lee Radziwill’s Park Avenue apartment circa 1982, from her gem of a book Happy Times, are always a good place to start.

  • Images of homes like theses are such an antidote to the HGTV notions of style we’re bombarded with these days. These images are from 1982, but because the occupant’s value for personal style over trends and more interest in quality versus disposability, the rooms are timeless.

  • Exactly what KW said…couldn’t have worded it better myself.

    As far as decorating, I’ve always found layers add warmth and depth to a room. Art hung over wallpapered walls and patterned rugs over solids create a cozy room I’d like to nest in.
