Tory Burch New York

Above: The Tory Burch store on Madison Avenue in New York.

One afternoon I was sitting comfortably on this great couch with my iPad a bottle of water at hand on the coffee table, when I looked around and thought, “I feel like I’m home.” But the thing is, I wasn’t home. I was waiting for my credit card and the pair of sandals I just bought. I was at a Tory Burch store.

As I left through the high gloss orange doors, I started thinking about how so many higher-end retail shops are designed to make you feel like you’re home—or rather, what your home would feel like if you were that particular designer. It makes the shopper linger more, but it also tosses in an added dose of aspiration. Smart. But here’s the thing: I’m much more into being inspirational as opposed to aspirational. So, I decided to take the overall look of the store, which I think is impeccably decorated, and create a living room based on it. Classic, modern, fun and full of color! The budget would be smaller and the timeline would be tight, but this is what I do. So I gathered a bunch of photos from the Internet and picked out the things I liked best from each image. I liked pink more than orange, I love gold metallic, and I like white high gloss. Also, I’d add some more accessories and electronics—after all, this is a home, not a store.

The room already had hot pink wallpaper on two walls and a muted gold on the other two. Since I was working off of a color palette of pink, orange, gold, and green, this was a pretty good starting point. Then I added the signature white seating, a chic green and white graphic rug, some faux bamboo pieces, a little DIY, a few techy add-ons, and some vintage pieces like glassware and a bar cart. The end result was fabulous, colorful, and modern: A happy, glamorous room.

This look is really about starting with big, classic pieces and punching up the style with details. When you’re using that many brights, it can go from fabulous to all kinds of crazy in just a couple of moves; the key is to stick to the color palette, to make sure the lines are clean, and to keep the details chic.

Last week on NBC’s Open House NY,  I showed viewers exactly how I did it:

  1. Wow, this store is certainly a great inspiration for any living room. Chic, stylish, purple, gold and a magnificent, yet simple chandelier.

    The vintage green frames from the video look pretty much like expensive pieces of art. Good contrast with green to pink, that brings you back to white with red dots or gold, which suits the pink perfectly.

    This shop is certainly an excellent motivation for any residing space area. Elegant, fashionable, violet, silver and a spectacular, yet easy hanging.

  4. Chick and stylish, the perfect design for a luxury designer brand shop. However, in my opinion, this decoration is just too much for a living room – too much colour, gold, and glass.

    I too love Tory Burch's design at home and her stores. It has greatly inspired me…enough that I redid my foyer and used the green velvet as my launching pad for the idea to use green paint…which I have dubbed…"Tory Burch Green" and I nailed it!! My foyer with it's black and white tiled floors and the blue and white lamps and accents along with a leopard "painting" look great!! I need somehow to post a pic on the internet so others can use this same paint green combo I came up with! Now, I'm onto my family room and screened in porch…where I will be further influenced by Tory's own sunroom in her Hampton's home. The other thing I should note…is that I am frugal …always looking for a deal…craigslist kind of gal! And I have basically put together most of my rooms from items I already own,,,have found on Craigslist,,,EBAY, GoodWill or other thrift stores or for free. My motto is…"I save money, so I can spend money"! Friends have said I should have my own show!
