Iris Apfel









Who is Iris Apfel?


Apfel burst onto the international stage in 2005, when the Metropolitan Museum of Art put the octogenarian’s flamboyantly bohemian personal wardrobe—antique Chinese robes, haute-couture feathered coats, operatic necklaces, many of them made to her eccentric order—on display in its Costume Institute. And now she is literally taking her mix-master taste on the road, from advising fashion-school students to designing a forthcoming collection of costume jewelry.

Her home is full of interesting collections, beautiful fabrics and an eclectic assortment of furniture. I love how she keeps adding layers, not worrying about anything matching. I personally could never live with so much, but I get so much creative inspiration when I see a home like this.
