I picked up a stack of old Madison and InStyle magazines at an op shop the other day, which I do from time to time to look at the ‘living’ sections, and came across the amazing home of fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. It’s a display of such incredible eclectic style, but so liveable, and not fancy and designer-ish at all. In particular, I am absolutely smitten with her library/living room, with the wall-to-wall bookshelves and the library ladders! I want a room just like this one in my next house (my dissatisfaction with my current house grows every time I see something like this and have to confront my home’s unbearable inadequacies. Forget only having one bathroom, what I’m really lacking is a huge library room!) The rug is pretty great, too. I love her use of colour and mixing of styles.
