A Vogue Abode

I must admit I was excited when Vogue featured their very own Lauren Santo Domingo's apartment. She is a style icon so I was not surprised to see her casa has a personality all its own...I included this picture for two reasons: 1. the chairs in the back-very cool 2. See the dog bronze by the coffee table? It was an anniversary present to her husband she had artist E. Cunningham make of their dog. Maybe Patrick needs a Harry statue....
That hippo is actually a full bar, you know how I love quirky items...this one takes the cake. I wish it were mine.
Don't you love looking at bookshelves and what they hold?
No need to comment on why I love this shot...
Orrrrrrr this one....
This room is about to become a nursery, I hope at some point pictures of the lucky baby's home will float my way.

Fabulous place. Could you possibly show a room with leather couches for inspiration? I have a family room with leather and do not want it to come off masculine and would love to add some tasteful pillows, etc. Any thoughts?

What a great space! I envy people who can fill their homes to the brim with all sorts of things - whether it be furniture, books, quirky objects found here and there - and it never looks cluttered! Thanks for sharing this vogue home!

I was actually kinda underwhelmed. I expected more. and better closet shots. I always figured her to be more classic, and it was kinda, um odd? lots of trees lol

but I will say, that hippo bar is the best thing ive EVER seen

Gareen said...

I totally expected more, too! It's done very well and tastefully, but it's just not my cup of tea.

Love her, though!

I think the apt. looks cool, but the photographer did not do a good job at all. It's hard to focus on anything, the angles don't help. she's as cute as a button.
