Olivia Palermo's Tribeca Apartment
To furnish the place, Olivia and her mother, Lyn Hutchings, a partner at interior design firm Hutchings-Lyle, came up with the design plan: a 1960s look with a classic, old Hollywood feel. For the living room, the duo chose a comfy two-piece sectional sofa bed from Jennifer Convertibles. Next, Olivia fell for a baby-blue Bing side table from Gracious Home, which adds to the cheerful tone. “Then my mom slowed me down,” she says. “She made me realize that buying furniture is not like shopping for clothes. You need to think of the look of the entire apartment.” Taking the time to scour design centers and antique shops paid off: The eye-catcher in the room is an Hermès tray, a vintage find from the Hamptons, placed on top of a Carlyle Custom Convertible white-leather coffee table with nailheads.
The bedroom is personalized with a zebra-print antique lamp with a string shade (“a gift from my dad”) and framed photographs of loved ones—Olivia’s boyfriend of eight months, Wilhelmina model Johannes Huebl, dominates the selection. The most prized piece, however, is a dresser from ABC Carpet & Home, which is covered in sparkling costume jewelry. “My aunt [Linda Donahue] is a costume jewelry expert, so I understand it’s just as valuable as real jewelry,” she says, holding up a vintage brooch decorated with enamel and rhinestone lovebirds. “And every piece comes with a rich history. I got this one at the Pier Show in New York, but found an almost identical pin in Leigh Leshner’s book, Vintage Jewelry, A Price and Identification Guide, 1920-1940s. So I think it’s Depression-era.”
