Designer and philanthropist Diane Von Furstenburg’s Penthouse/Design studio in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. The six-story, 35,000 square foot, architectural achievement was created by the firm WORKac. The interior design is super eclectic, and seriously fun! The aesthetic feels bohemian, worldly, and intense! Modern solid and patterned pieces mixed with earth tones, wood, ethnic tapestries, and bright pop-artsy embellishments, merge together to form something that feels totally outrageous and yet, perfectly humble and human. I think an important thread here is the bold accent colors. They allow the eye to travel comfortably from one scene to the next without feeling totally lost. Personally, this is a bit much for my taste, but I think it is admirable that DVF did the interior herself and followed her instincts rather than trying to play it safe.
