Next month’s Architectural Digest is all about fashion, and features the homes of designers, photographers and stylemakers from Valentino in France to Gilles Mendel in New York City. To be honest, I wasn’t over the moon with any of the homes featured, but I did find things to love in two of them, so I thought I’d send you off into the weekend with a little eye candy.
First up, designer Jenni Kayne’s LA pad. I love so much about this home: the exposed beams, the wooden ceiling, the glass and concrete and fab inside-outside chimney breast. In fact, it might be easier for me to talk about what I don’t like here, in order to save time. (Er, I’m not really feeling the bed?)
From one extreme to another, we’ve got Project Runway judge Nina Garcia’s Upper East Side home in Manhattan. I love the traditional bones of this place, and the colourful-yet-restrained palette used in the decor. Add in a bunch of lovely modern art (hung nice and low, just the way I like!) and a walk-in closet (enough said) and this is a different kind of dream come true.
Which home do you prefer? I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
