ONE OF THE BEST, BUT certainly not only, times to pick up a decorating magazine is when you renovate your home. There’s an impossible number of choices out there, which is why you turn to ELLE DECOR for inspiration. I’m not one of those people whose style stays consistent—I used to joke that I was John Pawson in the morning, Miles Redd at lunchtime, and Madeleine Castaing in the afternoon. The thing is, I love them all equally. When I was deciding what style to renovate my own apartment in, this issue’s cover star, David Kaihoi, told me something that changed my view of New York interiors forever: “Manhattan is the only place in the world where you can embody any style,” he said. Where else do you see high…

SIMON UPTON Photographer, “Protean Tools,” p. 160 ON THE GO: “Recently I have been to both Russia and Poland. Otherwise I’m spending an unusual amount of time in the U.K., where I’m based.” FAVORITE PLACE: “My office. It’s filled with objects from my travels. I love to visit it—and to leave it, too.” DAVID KAIHOI Designer, “East Side Story,” p. 152 MORNING RITUAL: “I make a cup of coffee and walk around my apartment with a watering can, whispering sweet nothings to the plants.” CHILD’S PLAY: “My kids inspire me.

I would never think that was something to even consider…

1 Much like the high notes to which its name refers, the hardwood-and-bronze Treble side chair from DeMuro Das— rendered here in a Warwick velvet in Mystere Gold and featuring arresting tripod legs—is a showstopper. 2 Do you fancy déjeuner sur l’herbe? Christofle’s egg-shaped Mood Nomade, a stainless steel, walnut, and leather capsule, holds six silver-plated table settings, perfect for an Impressionistic restaging of a picnic en plein air. 3 Somewhere between an elegant birdcage and a Rubik’s Cube lies the made-to-order Crosby Library. Built of powder-coated steel (shown here in blue, but available in any color), the rotating parts of Crosby Studios’ piece can be perfectly aligned or staggered for a sculptural effect. 4 Artist and designer John Pomp encapsulates the aesthetic of a water puddle in his Tidal cocktail table, whose…

This month’s Mood Board is dedicated to Tony Duquette, the prince of extravagant glamour, a fearless lover of color, and the ultimate insider. A Hollywood darling who worked on stage and screen designs; a favorite decorator (as well as jewelry and furniture designer) of 20th-century high-society citizens—including J. Paul Getty and the Duchess of Windsor—the world over; and a protégé of famed decorator and actress Elsie de Wolfe, Duquette created over-the-top mise-en-scènes that exuded pure joie de vivre. His was a decadence done with humor and joy. As legendary Vogue editor in chief Diana Vreeland once said, “The eye has to travel.” Entering one of Duquette’s rooms, you did indeed travel to another world, one in which he made his own rules and his creativity knew no limits. Today, nearly two decades…

Georgia O’Keeffe’s floral paintings are synonymous with the Southwest, but the artist drew from many locales, including Hawaii, where she spent nine weeks in 1939. From May 19 through October 28, the New York Botanical Garden pays homage to her visit with “Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i.” Tableaux of tropical plants such as frangipani and bird of paradise evoke the inspiration behind 20 of O’Keeffe’s paintings from the trip. “One of the questions I asked myself was, Did she assimilate enough in order to paint a world that was not her own?” says curator Theresa Papanikolas. The strength of the resulting images speaks for itself (nybg.org).
