Good morning, lovely readers. We are visiting a stunning apartment today. It belongs to fashion designer Erin Fetherston. Elegant and stylish with unique pieces that add interest to this spacious apartment.
By the entrance door, a pile of freshly cut wood is ready for the fireplace. The chandelier overhead is from her Paris apartment.
Erin Fetherston in her expansive living room.
Fetherston picked up her Bergère-style chairs at an auction in Paris.
She covered this Holly Hunt candle chandelier with some vintage silk roses.
For the dining room, gray granite dining table and eighteenth-century chairs. She had the chairs re-covered in three different fabrics—including burlap—to make them look and feel more casual.
She keeps the sketch she received from a friend to thank Fetherston for making her a coat. The hands are molds to make rubber gloves.
This minibar houses tiny crystal bottles and glasses. The rose resting on the top is a memento from a set built by designer Ali Gallagher for one of Fetherston’s runway shows in 2008.
On the nesting tables in the living room (found buried at a flea market in Napa Valley), Fetherston piles vintage children’s books as decor.
The apartment has quite a bit of closet space. This particular closet, however, is used as more of an archive, as opposed to the one she uses every day.
Fetherston displays some of the most important pieces from her past collections on the wall in her closet. “My staff made me those pillows a few Christmases ago,” she says. “They have the names of my dogs—Koala and Tulipan—embroidered on them.”

Her bed is flanked by two chinoiserie lamps and an eighteenth-century style cushioned bench—custom made.
A long chinoiserie silk screen was placed against the wall in her bedroom.
An extra-large clam shell filled with ostrich eggs on the large window sill. Beautiful view of the Hudson River from here.
Fetherston uses the mezzanine loft in her apartment as office space.
