yesterday was jackie kennedy’s birthday. i’ve been pondering how to celebrate her special day. i thought it would be nice to celebrate how she lived.

jackie lived in the same apartment in nyc on fifth ave. for more than 30 years. the apartment overlooked central park and was a lesson in restraint, style and comfort.

there was a refinement and elegance to the surroundings- the books, skirted tables, boxes, busts, art, of course i love all of her blue and white accessories….all the layers create a space that seems real, in many ways simple, yet full of life.

all photographs are from sotheby’s famous sale of the apartments contents in 1996, i can’t believe that has been almost 20 years ago….so much time has gone by but one thing for certain is jackie’s style continues to live and forever will inspire- happy birthday!
