Karlie Kloss Style at Home

March 11, 2014

Besides for loving everything about what designer Nate Berkus has done in Karlie Kloss’s NY city home, I am loving the story Vogue tells about how and why Karlie chose the pieces that tell her personal story….Read more on Vogue

A few key points to pay attention to …..

1. Don’t be afraid to mix high and low!

With iron hooks from Anthropologie, a waterfall-style console from interior-design resource Made Goods, and the mirror Berkus is referring to (a custom brass–shark tooth piece from Chicago-based Antiques on Old Plank Road), her rooms are luxurious without being overly cluttered with inappropriately expensive rarities. “I wanted to mix and match the same way I do with fashion—wearing, say, a beautiful Saint Laurent tailored blazer with an H&M T-shirt,” says Kloss, who paired high-end feather wallpaper from Lee Jofa with drapes from Restoration Hardware.- Vogue

2. Take cues from the way you dress for your decisions where comfort, practical and functionality matter.

Since, at the moment, she’s wearing a cozy Theyskens’ Theory sweater and skinny jeans, it’s clear that comfort and a sense of warmth are priorities, too—hence the mostly neutral tones and tactile properties of everything from an ivory sheepskin bench in her living room to the grass-cloth wallpaper in the kitchen nook.” -Vogue

3. Pick pieces that are YOU not anyone else! 

“…………As far as comfort zones go, then yes, we’re standing in the sweet spot, so to speak. But in the process of buying and decorating her first house—learning to communicate her taste, work within a budget, and stand up for everything that’s important in truly making it hers—it’s clear that Kloss has become more confident in her decisions. “As models, we’re dressed in everyone else’s designs, but this is my space,” she says. “It’s definitely been an opportunity for me to learn who I am.”Vogue

4. Remember…curate and collect don’t decorate!

” Kloss and Berkus also purposely left room to grow in the multilevel house. Though the guest bedroom upstairs is currently the “shove-everything-in-there-and-close-the-door room,” as Kloss calls it, at some point she’ll likely convert it to an office for her many side projects….She plans on filling up the empty spaces with souvenirs from her travels down the road—most recently she brought back a hand-woven throw blanket from a trip to Myanmar.”-Vogue

Btw did you notice how well the styled console works…would you say The 5 Piece Rule worked here?!
