Reader Request: Gloria, Gloria


The other day I heard from a Gloria Vanderbilt fan who longed to see more images of her very autobiographical Manhattan home as it appeared in Elle Decor, October 2000. So additional pictures have been added to the "Year 2000" post below. (Be on the lookout for something red and something shabby in at least one room.) Above is a portrait of Vanderbilt painted by Carol Matthau.

You are welcome! Homey but opulent is a great description.

Oh my goodness, thank you so much for posting those pictures! I do very much appreciate it!

Her style is so wonderful- chic and comfortable. It has certainly developed into something lovely over the years. The style of her place in the 70s (example) gives very little hint to the her current easy elegance.

Thanks again for the pictures- they were wonderful to wake up to!
