Elle Decor has asked 7 top New York fashion designers to talk about the personal spaces they love the best.
Lisa Perry’s Entry Hall
A strong first impression. Her 59th street appartment entry hall is inspired in the 60’s.
Joseph Altuzarra’s Bedroom
Sexy and sohisticated. His town house in NY Chelsea is the place where ornate details like a carved marble mantel coexist with unfinished brick walls.
Donna Karan’s Loft
A design escape. The Greenwich Village building with a soaring ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking a garden.
Carolina Herrera’s Dining Room
Elegance and grace. Based in the Sweden’s Haga Palace, it is filled with 18th-century antiques, oil paintings, and rare books.
Francisco Costa’s Library
‘Book-cation’. He finds his inspiration in his collection of over 5,000 volumes. “For me, reading is like going on vacation.”
Reed Krakoff’s Foyer
Craftmanship and modernism. A collection of Line Vautrin mirrors, a Marc Newson Lockheed Lounge chair, and a flock of François-Xavier Lalanne’s surreal sheep sculptures.
Tracy Reese’s Living Room
Warm and cosy. This Manhattan appartment is the combination of “strong color, bold pattern, rich texture, and a bit of romance.”, she says.
