10 Fabulous Home Interior Steals From Anna Wintour’s New Vogue Office

  • Pin it

Vogue is a pioneer in more ways than one. This time, it’s beyond fashion as we’d expect it with Conde Nast moving to their One World Trade Center Headquarters. A groundbreaking decision which could amp up the commercial value of the 104-stories building lacking serious renting appeal due to its Twin Towers proximity karma.

We’re setting everything aside, focusing on Vogue’s new digs, particularly on Anna Wintour’s office. She is, after all, a woman of extraordinary fashion influence, who else is better for a home fashion inspiration moment? Starting with:

1. Dark desk If you’re partial to a lighter aesthetic, consider changing for a dark office desk and see how you can cope with the new style perspective. Anna likes her classic-looking desk on the chocolate end of the spectrum! Dark is in Vogue!

2. Industrial simple office chairs Metal office chairs may not be the first seating solution for long working hours. Anna likes her Xavier Pauchard iconic Tolix chairs, you might give them a reasonable try. It’s about time you gave up the rotating chair cliché and offer your office guests the same kind of chair you’re using!

3. White shade table lamp While a total industrial look to match the chairs style would’ve implied a metal desk lamp, Anna likes her office on the stylish side, thus opting for a classy and classic table lamp with light shade and trompe l’oeuil scalloped print. Pass the clip-on work lamp to your kids and look for an oversized buffet lamp like Anna’s!

6. Ceramic Vases for storage and decoration Ceramic vases make a very interesting décor addition for any interior. Especially if there’s a special meaning attached to them – a place you’ve visited, a loved one who hand painted a gift for you or an empty vase waiting for a lovely bouquet! Pick yours colorful, just like Anna’s and your work space will get an instant colorful value!

7. Gallery wall Frame images that matter most or you feel inspired by! Anna not only has her personal gallery wall but she’s also keeping framed pictures (mostly black and white) laying by the window! Some posters look cool just laying instead of hanging… (pick dark frames where possible and highly contrasting images)

8. Forget curtains! Curtains and work spaces don’t make a good match! Pleated stores, at most, in a similar palette with your entire room or nothing at all! You need broad perspective for a global work approach! Especially if you’re working in the third tallest building in the world, like Anna does! Even if you’re working in your home office, opt for natural light instead of covering your windows. The view matters!

9. Use books to decorate Fancy coffee table books don’t belong in shelving units! They need to be stacked pretty much everywhere there’s a flat surface. Picking them up, going through them can be such a resourceful, inspiring, relaxing activity! Books are good, keep them at hand, in plain view, like Anna!

10. Pops of color in neutral interiors Your work space is just a blank canvas for your ideas. Use pops of lively colors for a surprising effect and invigorating mood. Boxes, vases, different textures and materials layer up in your visual repertoire to better stimulate your potential.

Many many years ago I had a gallery of black and white pictures (some were ripped pages of magazines,Vogue mostly, not real photography) just laying on the wall, not hanging. I had seem it in a R.Lauren catalogue and thought it was soo über chic and decided I had to have the same at home.
A friend come to visit us and commented something like : ” Your home is so beautiful. I will ask my husband to come here and hang your pictures.” I thought she was joking and laughed. A few days later her husband REALLY showed up with a drill…

oh, my?! Did you let him?
We have framed posters too, laying on the floor, by the walls. I never seem to bring myself around to decide to really drill the walls. What if I change my mind about their position? So instead I only use painter’s adhesive tape to hang the kids drawings. The craziest ones, of course ;-)

No… but he fixed some shelves for the books. I am obsessed with books.
