My Styling Featured in Elle Decor Magazine’s 30th Anniversary Issue: His and Hers Closets for a Tribeca Apartment
I’ve been wanting to share about this fun project I worked on a few months back for a while, and now that the article is finally published, I’m thrilled to tell you guys all about it!
About 3 months ago, Elle Decor Magazine reached out to me, asking me to style a His and Hers closets for a gorgeous Tribeca Apartment they were renovating and featuring in their 30th Anniversary Issue, and of course, I said YES! First of all, I love Elle and Elle Decor – they are the only 2 magazines I have a subscription to, and it felt like the perfect opportunity to lend my styling expertise to a publication I love.
The project entailed curating closets for the “ideal residents” of a 13 million dollar Tribeca dwelling at 108 Leonard Street in a Landmark Building, which is currently under renovation. The dweller’s lifestyle and demographics were slightly fictitious but I was provided with an overall mood board, featuring brands like The Row and Alexander Wang to get the inspiration for their style.
With that in mind, I set out to plan and design these dream closets. The first step in the process was to create edits from featured collections, so I decided that Barney’s was the best fit to represent the brands that would have the aesthetic we were looking for. I shopped Men’s and Women’s collections, selecting pieces that would together shape up the looks for the closets.
Once the Edits were created, I set out in search of the items to curate the closets, using online and in-store resources. Keeping the apartment dwellers in mind, I chose pieces that would create a somewhat neutral palette with spots of statement colors and accessories.
I only had a week to work on the project – with everything from procuring the pieces to styling them in the space before the scheduled photo shoot.
I am so pleased with how the closets turned out – and really proud to have my work featured in the magazine this month! Check out some in-progress shots below – as well as the finished pages that were published.
