Queen of New York
By Sade Lythcott
This month’s Architectural Digest spotlights the über fashionable pied-à-terre of Diane von Furstenberg, a live-work space in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. It’s a stunning glass and steel aerie that Madam Furstenberg refers to as her “tree house.” The space is an exquisite portrait of her tastes, passions, and travels.
We can learn a lot from DVF. Here are five tips and takeaways from the “tree house” tour that you might consider when decorating your own space.
1. Mixing and matching the same color prints can add rich and sumptuous texture to a room.
2. Splashes of color help to highlight and… [MORE] showcase all of the wonderful details of a space.
3. Art with a capital “A.” Art is such a great way to enunciate your taste, aesthetic, and personality.
4. Signature seating. Think outside the box when it comes to choosing chairs and couches.
5. Whenever you travel, bring back something home besides fond memories. Nicknacks from abroad can add a touch of character and uniqueness to your space. Obscure odds and ends can also jump start a conversation when you have guests over.
