Iris Apfel's Epic 800 Item Collection on One Kings Lane

I was so excited when I read that One Kings Lane will be selling around 800 pieces of her epic collection of vintage jewelry, furniture and accessories of the legendary decorator and stylist icon, Iris Apfel, this Saturday starting at noon. I am sure the traffic and anticipation could cause delays or crashes but I can't wait to see what all is listed. Apfel was an avid traveler and it's said this sale will feature finds she picked up at Paris flea markets in the '40s, souks in Marrakech in the 60s, the square in Santa Fe in the '70s, among others.

Apfel believes, "fashion and décor are one and the same; One you're dressing yourself and the other you’re dressing the room. And, with myself I'm not changing my personality whether I'm in a room or in a dress. The same attitude applies — it's more of a lifestyle."

I did a post in May 2011 showing the interior of your Manhatten apartment and added some more of those pictures below. Wonder if any of these items will be in the sale? Looks like one of the black necklaces previewed below might be in the last picture with the dog.

Here is a sneak peak teaser of 12 of the 800 items for the sale from Elle Decor!

Joy Tribout

As the weather is starting to heat up slightly, I have had warm, sunny beaches on my mind. I came across these great coastal homes decorated by Joy Tribout. Lots of great patterned fabrics, blankets, and nautical accents. Who else is ready for warm weather too?

The fabric on the curtains resembles round life preservers and the bedskirt and pillows have nautical rope motif.

Cupid's Arrow

Happy Valentine's Day! I thought instead of showing cheesy hearts, I would share something Valentine related with the whimsical arrow and show interior inspirations using arrows! Who knew I would be able to find enough images to do a post on this, Katniss would be so proud.

John Derian's NYC Apartment

I was dying to see the interiors of John Derian's East Village apartment, thinking it would like walking inside a living Natural Curiosities display. I saw his awesome display at Bergdorf's a few years and was mesmerized with all his neat découpage antique style trays and paperweights featuring botanicals, animals, insects, vintage maps and cities, quotes, etc! It's hard to choose a favorite.Check out the beautiful interior images of Derian's home captured by The Selby.
