Tory Burch at Home

You didn't think I'd write a post about Tory Burch's personal style without following it up with her chic apartment did you? The 9,000 square foot, not so humble, abode was created by combining apartments in The Pierre Hotel by architect and designer Daniel Romualdez. It was only featured in Vogue but recently, bits and pieces of the apartment have been popping up again including the kitchen, above, and breakfast nook that were seen in Elle magazine.

Tory also recently created a table setting for a casual lunch in her kitchen for the House Beautiful magazine.

Also featured in Elle was her breakfast room that was redecorated at some point in Arbre de Matisse from Quadrille.

As you can see in this older photo of the kitchen, the breakfast room in the background had yet to be upholstered in the Arbre de Matisse print. I am also loving that green kitchen floor. It looks so clean and cheerful!

Of course the pièce de résistance is the circular foyer lined in beautiful Gracie chinoiserie hand painted paper in pale green. In the distance is the library.

The library is larger than most New Yorker apartments!

The red lacquer bar of the foyer would have made a good addition to my bar post.

The drawing room walls are lined with green silk velvet fabric while the dining room beyond is lacquered in orange. Not sure if you can tell in this photo but the mouldings are painted to look like tortoise shell.

The blue and white porcelain looks pretty against the moss green velvet walls.

This is a badly scanned photo of the drawing room but it gives you a sense of the furniture including the sofa which was designed in homage to Givenchy. It also looks like the kids have fun touching the velvet walls!

The apartment was featured in Vogue in 2004 so not sure if Tory's sons still sleep in bunk beds but it's a great room to use for inspiration for little boy bedrooms.

The colors of the apartment flow through out the space and into this bedroom and Tory's closet below which I know we all covet! I know there is probably much more to this apartment than we've seen and I hope Tory will open it up to more magazines. Maybe ELLE DECOR can feature it in their next fashion issue. Hint hint!

Thank you so much for the fabulous post on my favorite fashion designer! I loved getting an inside peak to her fabulous residence. I like that her fashion sense has been translated into her interiors. She knows who she is and what she loves. Bravo, great post!

OMG can you tell us more about the kitchen? More images and details about that gorgeous floor color. What color is it and how was it achieved? I'm redoing my kitchen shortly and this has stopped me in my tracks!

Love the colors--the green velvet with the blue/white chinese porcelain, with the glimpse of lacquer red/orange. Of course, the little boys are adorable--finger prints and all. Thanks, Mary
