That painting is incredible!
Oh, I love Iris Apfel! And that house — so intricate, so layered! And that painting is ridiculously awesome.
These are great, thank you!
LOVE her. i don’t no where she got her start, but i do know she was one of the first ladies to wear denim! i am happy she is still so fabulous!
It’s what I imagine heaven to look like. What a beautiful space.
that may be the most amazing apartment I”ve ever seen!
ahhhh, thanks for sharing! I liked her so much in the Bill Cunningham doc – “I’m the world’s oldest teenager!”
Wow that is an impressively decorated and commodious apartment!!! I heard that Hanna Bernhard is not too thrilled about Apfel’s new jewelry line Rara Avis slated for September with HSN. Apparantly the Toucan design is very similar to one Bernhard created. Drama. Needless to say I loved seeing these pictures of her home and her new line of jewelry is really fantastic. I just hope that there isn’t any truth to the allegations of stealing Bernhards design because that isn’t cool and would seem out of character and hopefully unintended.
I find it rather interesting that in contrast to her home, her fashion style is very minimal. Every time I meet her she is sweeter then the time before.
The closet is my favorite pic . . . she’s so cute!!
oh, man! iris is soooo cool.
Loving those little African fellows she’s got in her living room.
I think it’s because of the monkey on the cabinet but this reminds me of gloria swanson’s house in sunset boulevard.
Thanks for sharing!
There’s these two very eccentric old ladies that live in Thornton that have a house that’s the SA version of this. We befriended them and Kristina wanted to do a shoot there but their daughter got mixed up with it and told us to get lost.. we managed to get some photos but we’re respecting their wishes and leaving them offline. The place is incredible tho – has not changed much since the 40′s. The sisters are both in their late 80′s.
right? she’s SO awesome.
It feels like noone is living in there and former owners are dead.
Thank you for posting this! She is amazing.
Wow! How have I never heard of this woman?! Her house is absolutely amazing! I would love to have a house like this, except I think it’s hard to make it look happily cluttered and not just cluttered. It’s just so happy!
this is what my dreams are made of
I am glad to see that Iris Apfel is also fond of Velasquez and Susan Herbert
