I couldn't just post Diana Vreeland's home when her office was just as chic. She began her magazine career at Harper's Bazaar when Carmel Snow hired her because she was impressed with her style. She became known for her "Why don't you..." columns and even hired Ali MacGraw. After she was fired, she was went on to be the editor in chief of Vogue in 1963. She stayed with the magazine until 1971 after which she joined the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These photos are from her Vogue office about 1968 and the inspiration board and leopard carpet attest to her innate sense of style. She famously said once that "too much good taste can be boring" but it's clear that she had amazing taste and was never boring!
