Iris Apfel’s New York Home Interior Design

Famous fashion icon and interior designer Iris Apfel is also the new owner of a New York apartment that she obviously decorated herself. The designer studied art history at New York University and she has also attended art school. It came a moment when when she decided to start her own business. This decision was the result of a conclusion that she drawn when she realized that she could outperform her decorator-employer.

So the student was now the master. The style of the fresh designer and decorator was unique. She was a fan of unique and antique pieces of furniture and as a result she developed her own style. The new apartment that she purchased in New York is a very clear representation of her style.

The apartment features unusual and unique details and decorations, like for example the 18-19th century dog portraits that can be seen throughout the house, French chairs, art books, stone pedestals and many other items that have been collected over the years.

As you can see, Iris doesn’t create minimalist interior design. In her case, more is better. Not everyone can embrace this concept successfully. You need to know how to combine colors, patterns and textures in a way that doesn’t hurt the eye. She seems to be an expert in this sense.What do you think of Iris Apfel’s home?{found on interiorholic}
