Genial Clutter; Personal Style

I love highly personal spaces; couldn’t imagine having a decorator do up my environment. I also love layers of textiles, faded rich colors, and books throughout a house.

One space that caught my eye last week was the apartment of documentarian Albert Maysles (of Gray Gardens fame, etc.). He lives in Harlem and his apartment is full of paintings by his children, delicious wilting colors, and genial clutter.

It’s the grumpy clutter that I don’t cohabit with well.

I love the rich color palate of that room and the books. It would be so cozy on a snowy afternoon with a fire in the fireplace.
