apartamento: chloë sevigny

Chloë Sevigny’s East Village apartment (first published in the January 2007 issue of House & Garden) is one of my all-time favorite spaces. So, you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that her apartment had been published a second time in Apartamento’s October 2009 issue. Albeit a bit after-the-fact, I couldn’t help but reblog these images (plus, it’s always fun to get a peek into the homes of the insanely stylish..!). When doing up the place, she and decorator David Cafiero were inspired by "that beaten-down WASP late-sixties look” made famous by Billy Baldwin. I think she does a fantastic job of bringing that look up to date + making it her own (can we talk about the tiger pillow in her Chintz-covered guest room?). If you’ll indulge me for one moment, I’d also like gush about her expansive collection of Herend figurines (see photo #7). It was rumored that she also collected them (it’s a crazy obsession of mine...), but I didn’t believe it until I saw a photo of the menagerie itself. Obsessed! I think we're destined to be friends :)

What an absolute DREAM to own an apartment like this one in the village one day! That matching wallpaper/bedding seals the deal. xo Lola

Love her! She's so insanely cool/stylish and her apartamento is befittingly so as well ;) thanks for posting as I actually haven't seen either articles! i really love how thorough your posts are- they are so informative I feel like I leave a little bit more in the know after a visit here :) {And your Herend figurine collection, totally cool by my book- and indeed your are in great company with Chloe!} Xx

It's clear to see Chloe's unique sense of style carries over into her decorating. Lovely shots of her abode. Thanks for the peek inside.
