At Lauren’s residence in Bedford, New York, a 19th-century Dutch chandelier presides over the entrance hall.  Love the airy and sophisticated vibes at the entry.

In the living room, matching 19th-century Louis XV–style wing chairs flank an 18th-century Chinese carved low table; pillows made from antique textiles accent the sofa, and the throw in the foreground is a 19th-century Kashmiri paisley.   The space is full collection of  art, hand-crafted objects, fine home goods…

Ralph Lauren Home fabrics cover the sofa and pillows in the poolhouse, which features 16th-century Belgian pine ceiling beams and a 17th-century French limestone mantel; the lamps are made from 18th-century Chinese vessels.  I love the open and tranquil feel in this room.  And of course, blue-and-whites.

The breakfast room’s tableware is by Ralph Lauren Home, as are the fabrics used for the tablecloth and the cushions on the 19th-century English armchairs; the painting is 17th-century Dutch.  This is one of my rooms.  I always have a thing with layered table-cloth—it’s elegant, relaxing and fun.

A vintage French bistro mirror hangs above the antique pedestal sink in the poolhouse bath.  Love this vintage mirror with a clean–line modern flair.

A circa-1774 portrait by Pompeo Girolamo Batoni is displayed between the library’s French doors, which are curtained with a Ralph Lauren Home velvet; the two-arm Argand lamp is 19th century, and the pillows are made of antique fabrics.  This is truly Lauren’s signature style—dark and rich color palettes, brass elements, wood panelings, checkered fabric…
