alice waters + apartamento

When I picked up the newest issue of Apartamento today, I was thrilled to see that the magazine included an interview with Alice Waters (of Chez Panisse + The Edible Schoolyard Project fame). The article, of course, is wonderful, but it’s really the accompanying illustrations that caught my attention. They’re by Spanish artist Jordi Labanda (who has an eye for color like you wouldn’t believe). I bought my copy at this goldmine of an independent bookstore called Ooga Booga, located in LA’s Chinatown. Lucky for you, the store also has an online boutique where you can purchase a copy of Apartamento for your archives - click here if you're intersted!

apartamento: chlo? sevigny

Chloë Sevigny’s East Village apartment (first published in the January 2007 issue of House & Garden) is one of my all-time favorite spaces. So, you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that her apartment had been published a second time in Apartamento’s October 2009 issue. Albeit a bit after-the-fact, I couldn’t help but reblog these images (plus, it’s always fun to get a peek into the homes of the insanely stylish..!). When doing up the place, she and decorator David Cafiero were inspired by "that beaten-down WASP late-sixties look” made famous by Billy Baldwin. I think she does a fantastic job of bringing that look up to date + making it her own (can we talk about the tiger pillow in her Chintz-covered guest room?). If you’ll indulge me for one moment, I’d also like gush about her expansive collection of Herend figurines (see photo #7). It was rumored that she also collected them (it’s a crazy obsession of mine...), but I didn’t believe it until I saw a photo of the menagerie itself. Obsessed! I think we're destined to be friends :)
