Floor-to-Ceiling Chic: Iris Apfel's Home

I'm excited to present a post from one of my favorite sites ShelterPop!

Fashion muse and self-proclaimed "geratric starlet" Iris Apfel's apartment is overflowing with personal style (and an incredible antiques collection). Take a peek:

While Iris Apfel wears many hats — muse, jewelry designer, Old World Weavers co-founder, street style icon — it's her star turn as interior decorator that's most impressive. After a stint working for a designer and finding that she could out-decorate (and out-shop) her easily, Apfel started her own firm and attracted clients with her remarkable style. "I guess people thought if I could decorate myself I could decorate a room or two," she told Architectural Digest.There's the legendary Apfel in her living room, surrounded by an 18th-century French bleached oak boiserie, a chair covered in Old World Weavers tapestry fabric and plenty of singerie -- fashionable monkeys satirizing human behavior.In the library, a Louis XVI daybed sits below a Dutch painting and pale green molding. Extra points if you can count all the patterns.

No surprise here — the woman that inspired a 2005 exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has a to-die-for closet . . . that lives in its own separate room.

Want to see the rest of the amazing home? Head over to Architectural Digest to see the full slideshow, a Q&A with Apfel or take a closer look at her style.
