The "IT" apartment
Whatever Lauren Santo Domingo wears, reviews or decorates with is always done in such a way that you go, "Damn, I wish I'd thought of that."
She'll pair a polka-dot skirt with a leopard-print top and it works. She'll chop her lovely long locks to her shoulders, spray and tussle it, leaving her with that "just-out-of-bed-hair" that frankly, I've never had, but people like her do. Jealous, Erin? Yes, yes I am.
Clearly Anna Wintour loves Santo Domingo or she wouldn't be featured in Vogue as often as some models do. Her apartment is now for all the world to see on Vogue.com and oh how I swooned.
As I say time and time again, I love it when people are fearless about the use of color -- whether it be in their wardrobe or in their home. I'm so timid when it comes to a splash of this and a splash of that though I'm truly trying to break free of this, but old habits are hard to break.
Santo Domingo does color so well in her NYC loft. I love the pink stool and the diagonal blue and white striped carpet. I would never ever do the latter, but I admire it nonetheless!
Definitely check out the full sideshow. Let me know what you like most.
