Home Away From Home

Back in March 2014, 21 year old model Karlie Kloss (WHAT, she’s only 21, excuse me while I have a mini heart attack), opened up her first home in New York City to Vogue Magazine. This has to be one of my favorite homes, much more my style, gold accented shelves and chairs with fur blankets and cushions in a white walled room.

Kloss had purchased her West Village town house just last year! Few other 21 year olds have the means to buy (let alone rent) such an impressive town house in one of Manhattan’s most-sought-after neighborhoods. “I’ve worked really hard to be in this position.” She travels the world for her job and now she felt it was time to plant some roots.

When it came to the interior of the home it was unknown territory for Kloss, “I really had no experience at all decorating or being a homeowner, I knew I wanted to make it mine, but I wasn’t quite sure how to go about doing that.” Kloss was introduced to Nate Berkus (I know him as Oprah’s interior prodigy) through a mutual friend. The two set about creating a home that reflects Kloss’s personal style and age. Kloss and Berkus left room to grow in the multi level house. Kloss calls the guest bedroom “shove-everything-in-there-and-close-the-door room” but at some point she wants to convert it into an office.
