A friend was kind enough to send me the October issue of Residence magazine, a Dutch design magazine (which, by the way, is a beautiful publication). I was excited to see this article on Caroline Herrera's Upper East Side home. I don't remember seeing these images before, although they could have been published in an American magazine. Anyway, I thought I would share them with you.
Unfortunately, I can't provide a lot of commentary as I can't read the article- I don't speak or read a word of Dutch! However, I think Herrera's home is as elegant, grand, and sophisticated as she is. It just goes to show that beautiful design is appreciated around the world.
The formal (and very red) living room. A sumptuous mix of fabrics.
Herrera's feminine bedroom. Can anyone identify the fabric??
The Warhol portrait of Herrera actually seems to fit right in with the predominately traditional furnishings.
A more neutral and softer color scheme in the dining room and in the image at the right (possibly her entryway?).
A display of old family photos. I can definitely see the attractive resemblance between the child in the photo in back and Caroline Herrera Jr.
