To freshen up her parents’ 1913 Manhattan townhouse previously transformed by legendary Italian decorator Renzo Mongiardino in the ‘90s, Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece called on another legendary decorator: @francois_catroux “He has a specific style, which I’ve always liked—not too fussy, rich, or overwhelming,” says Marie-Chantal of the French designer to nobles and billionaires. “We wanted to start with a clean slate and see the rooms for what they were, then decide what kind of furniture could sit nicely in them,” Marie-Chantal explains. She and Catroux began by taking stock of her London home to determine what to bring to New York: all the art, for starters, including works by Jean-Michel Basquiat (above, in the living room ), Damien Hirst, and Rob Pruitt. Her personal acquisitions began at the age of 16, when Andy Warhol asked his then intern if she’d like to sit for a portrait. When a bill arrived shortly thereafter, her parents “nearly disowned me,” she recalls. The Warhols can be found in the master bedroom, where a Juergen Teller photograph of Marie-Chantal as a young swan occupies another wall. Take a tour of the home via the link in our profile.

I love a room that highlights beautiful artwork. Every detail compliments the energy of the Basquiat by being tasteful but not distracting.

Love it all except the art work above the fireplace. That particular piece is repelling to me. Lovely room though!
