When Diana Vreeland famously told her friend, decorator Billy Baldwin, that she wanted her apartment to look like “a garden in hell,” he knew just what to do—go red. The man who once lined living room walls with crimson velvet was not afraid of color. Vreeland’s “garden in hell” became a thing of legend thanks to a floral-printed scarlet red chintz that Baldwin washed over everything from floor to ceiling, launching the Vogue editor’s living room into decorating history.
Style icons like Vreeland and Baldwin have influenced me in so many ways. When it came to adapting a traditional Bitossi Rimini design for my ceramics collection, I looked to their fiery midcentury hues for a twist on the pottery’s original blu glaze. I’ve also embellished each piece with an 18K gold rim. Available in cylinder and drum-shaped vases as well as a large low bowl, I love how rich and warm this collection is—perfect for the season.
