Nanette Lepore: Designer and Collector

Nanette Lepore's chic and free spirited fashion designs are all about femininity and modernity...but her eclectic taste in interiors and enthusiasm for collecting is what appeals to me most.  The fashion designer lives in an 1849 Italianate townhouse in Manhattan's West Village.  This Victorian gem was decorated by Jonathan Adler and is chock full of fabulous vintage finds.  A little old, combined with a little new, equals my idea of great design...Happy Friday...Enjoy!

Look at the ceiling height...

Her living room is one of my all time favorites. . .Its warm and cozy with unexpected color, vintage pieces and lots of texture. 
Great Portrait of Eva Peron.

What a pretty bed, isn't it?  Orange and purple..great combinations.

This tufted ottoman is gorgeous..and it looks like both sides flip up for storage too! 

This courtyard is dreamy...perfect for gathering friends and family. I really like this mosaic pattern. Nice way to bring in lots of color.
