See It Again: The Spade Apartment





All photography above, Eric Morin for the December 2006 World of Interiors.

I've mentioned Kate and Andy Spade's New York apartment several times since it appeared in World of Interiors. But this week I have clearer images to share. At first glance the apartment looks like happy chaos -- pattern-on-pattern, bold color, and loads of even bolder art. Yet, the symmetry gives it harmony and order. To me, it feels fresh and a tad stately -- like Ingrid Bergman's London apartment in Indiscreet. Steven Sclaroff helped orchestrate the Spade's mix. Click images above for details such as red trim on the entry bench.

I think I've finally found my peeps! Having moved to a town where the design community is, let us say, not overflowing, it is great to have found you and your blogger friends. I have been enjoying all of your blogs for a couple of months now, and have been inspired and informed. I realize I have been starving for a group of like-minded design junkies to share with. Thanks to you and all the blogger links!

This is just a great apartment. Sophisticated yet slightly "downtown"!

Thanks for posting these photos. When this issue came out, I searched for it and sadly for me every store was sold out.

In a previous article, Kate said she mirrored her doors and I always wondered what they looked like....fabulous of course is the answer!

Love it, but don't they have a toddler? I'm not one for totally babyproofing a house, but after learning the hard way, it is not possible to have all those great tablescapes and coffee table arrangements with kids around. Wonder what their secret is? Were there any pics of the nursery?

Mama Tiff,

I too would have loved to have seen the little girl's room -- no pictures were published. But I admire the parents for respecting her privacy. I think I read that the room is yellow :)
