Everybody knows who Donna Karan is. It’s a woman who built her enormous fashion empire in less than a decade on one extraordinarily simple idea: If she needs a particular item of clothing – a bodysuit, a wrap skirt, a chiffon blouse, a longer jacket – then every other woman needs it, too. Donna Karan’s Manhattan apartment is decorated in Zen style. “New York City inspires and fuels everything I do,” says Donna Karan. Minimal in structural and decorative elements, the space has just enough layered textiles and organic elements to create an inviting space for private or more public and social gatherings. The black and white color palette provides a modern and sleek backdrop for the more personally captured moments selected and learning in clustered frames. I like the simple colors and furniture; it’s a feeling like we are in the East. Serving as resting spot for collected artifacts, sitting mats, or even as a step into the next room – it creates a modern line visual and acts a multifunctional design form.
