Kelly Klein at Home

All the talk about Kelly Klein’s new book Horse had me thinking about her homes. Kelly is one of the most effortlessly chic women in New York so it is no surprise that her decor is also effortlessly chic. Her Upper West Side New York apartment was featured in the October 2008 issue of Town & Country magazine and was originally an artist’s studio. Now, it’s filled with art by Francesco Clemente and photos by Steven Klein and others. Doesn’t that firewood make you want to curl up in front of a cozy fire?!

Kelly designed the sofas and Belgian linen slipcovers above while the brown leather chairs are by Ruhlmann.

In the bedroom, a Chinese chest sits between chairs bought at Aspara Interiors in East Hampton. Too bad we probably won’t have time to stop there while we are at our installation in Sagaponack!

Steven Klein’s famous horse photos line the hallway. Robert Burke also has similar photos in his apartment.

There is nothing I love more than peeking at someone else’s bookshelves! You can tell a lot about a person from what they read. I personally hide all the potentially embarrassing books under my bed!

The very minimal dining room includes chairs by Joseph Hoffman, a custom concrete table, a Cellula chandelier from Moss and a painting by Eric Freeman.

I love the Olatz linens in the master bedroom and the sweet little elephant on the night table. Kelly just welcomed a baby into the home and his room below is also chic and simple.

Tune in tomorrow for photos of Kelly’s Florida home and for photos from Horse, click here.

    It’s absolutely gorgeous. Usually I am super tired with all this beige sortof minimalist atmosphere, but here it is so perfect, it’s timeless… Just love the Ruhlmann leather armchairs – even chicer in a non-art deco setting…

    I adore the books by color. I just need a little bit bigger book collection to get to that point, but I am well on my way!

    Thanks for posting these, I had the Elle Decor of her Wellington home, but this is gorgeous too. I would love to have a Steven Klein horse print!
