I’ve been meaning to post some images and quotes from this New York Times article on Lee Radziwill. I was so taken with the colors, patterns and textures Lee surrounds herself with that I wound up poking around to find out more about her. I knew she was a friend of Truman Capote, a socialite, and Jackie O’s sister. It turns out she also had a stint as an interior designer. Not sure whether the rooms above were designed by Italian stage designer Renzo Mongiardino or her. Either way, her space was frequently photographed by Cecil Beaton and Horst P. Horst. “Her interior design clientele were the wealthy; she once decorated a house “for people who would not be there more than three days a year.” (according to Wikipedia). If you know anything more about the rooms featured, do tell!
