Tory Burch at Home

(Tory Burch in her Upper East Side residence.)

I know absolutely everyone and their grandmother owns a pair of Tory Burch's Reva ballet flats (well, I don't, actually!), but I still love Tory Burch.  Her designs are classic Americana--bright and colorful, but not extreme--and she's an incredible designer and business woman, super stylish, and a blogger.  Plus, she has an amazing Upper East Side apartment, which I think reflects her design sensibility very well. Tina Barney shot some ads for Tory Burch's Spring 2010 line in her apartment, and look how well the decor and clothes go together!

I love the wallpaper and upholstery by Quadrille.

I love the floral print here, though I think I'd go for the dress, rather than the jumpsuit!  And look how well it coordinates with the wallpaper and velvet upholstery.

You can't see much of it here, but Tory's apartment has been featured in Vogue and ELLE, and the entry  is very striking, with a shiny black floor and hand-painted Gracie chinoiserie wallpaper.

Recently, I've developed quite a thing for milk glass, especially Fenton hobnail milk glass, with ruffled edges.  I was obsessed with sterling silver julep cups, the real ones from the Kentucky Derby, but those go for over $300, easily.  Fortunately, milk glass is a lot more affordable!  (Colored milk glass is harder to find, and thus more expensive, but I prefer the white kind.)  Look at all these cute options, currently on ebay for under $10.

This little sugar bowl is currently at $4.99!

I love these tall, ruffled dishes.  Wouldn't this be great with a big ice cream sundae inside? Get it now for just $0.99!

Here's another, and you can buy this one now for just $4.70!

I've never seen anything quite like these--they're footed bowels, but they have candleholders built in along the inside edges.  They would make a great centerpiece at a dinner party!

And while we're on the subject of dinner parties, this ruffled bon bon dish would look great filled with nuts, or a dip and crudites.

Is there anything you like collecting?
