Andy Spade At Home With Art

Andy & Kate Spade are currently auctioning off contents from their recently sold Southampton Beach house via Paddle 8, the online auction house. I came across photos of their Manhattan pre-war apartment on the Habitually Chic blog and the thing that struck me is the size of their art collection and their apparent passion for collecting in a very eclectic way.  On every available wall hangs at least one artwork and with smaller pieces they hang salon-style.  Certainly gave me inspiration hanging artwork for my clients.

Living With Art - Lisa & Richard Perry's Contemporary Art Collection

Lisa Perry, the 60's era pop fashion designer not only dresses, designs and passionately collects clothes from that period, the sumptuous showcase penthouse apartment at 1 Sutton Place South she shares with her husband Richard, is also dedicated to the swinging 60's.  I had a delightful visit to view their art collection last summer with the Perez Art Museum Miami.  Walking into this very stately co-op, built in 1926 by the renowned architect, Rosario Candela located on quiet, sedate Sutton Place is a big departure from the dazzling white lacquer floors and walls of the atrium where the elevator opens on the penthouse level.
