If you’re an eclechick reader, then you’re well aware of my complete and unabashed adoration for Diane von Furstenberg. Her clothes breathe femininity with the perfect amount of sex appeal and her spirit is beautifully charming and energetic. During Fashion’s Night Out last year at her Meatpacking location, I had a chance to speak to her and she is simply amazing. That little encounter solidified her role as my fairy godmother. Give me a closet full of DVF and I’m a happy chick!
Her recent appearance in Architectural Digest made my heart sing! DVF giving intimate views of her Manhattan live/work space? It fits right into the constantly growing roster of fashion designer’s homes here on eclechick, check out the links at the end of this post if you want to peruse past homes.
I’ve only been to Diane’s Meatpacking store which happens to be where her live/work space is. Let’s travel back in time for a minute; did you ever see the episode from the Hills when Whitney interviewed at DVF? Love at first sight! I’ve been obsessed since and there is a story about it, stay tuned. Ok, now fast forward to present-day, that location is my favorite because of the staircase (even though it’s normally closed off to the public during business hours) it’s the only one I shop when I’m in town. To get views of the entire live/work space excites me. From it’s plush, DVF-esque signature lip couch to its serene, free-standing teak tub; you’ll love Diane’s Manhattan Urban Hang Suite. Enjoy!
I’m in love with the snow leopard print carpet, it’s a dream of mine to have that type of carpet in my gigantic walk-in closet. Diane created that design for the Rug Company.
So here’s the story of the staircase, or in my head, the enchanting staricase: I’ll never forget the moment I saw this in person. If memory serves me correctly, that infamous angel music began playing as soon as my eyes fell upon it, as a matter of fact, I was so wrapped up in it, that I didn’t realize Diane von Fursternberg herself was standing right in front of me, then Teko snapped me out of the DVF staircase trance and said, “Sereeda, it’s DVF!!“, another DVF trance came over me.
Exquisite, the pictures take me to a relaxing oasis, and to think that this is in the midst of the Meatpacking District. I wouldn’t mind calling that place my home. How about you? I wonder what the closet looks like. As always, these intimate looks provide tons of interior decorating ideas that I’d like to mimick and bring into my home.
