Living in Style: Tamara Mellon's House in New York

The sexy, stylish founder of Jimmy Choo shoes, Tamara Mellon, opens the doors of her new apartment in New York to Harper's Bazaar for the September's issue. Her apartment, decorated by Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, is a mix of modern and old and glamorous with a touch of '70s filled with a great collection of pieces of art. Let's a have a look...

The first thing that you come upon at the entrance, is the " Love for eternity" neon-light installation by Terence Koh.

The Andy Warhol portrait of Grace Kelly hangs behind Tamara.

"I never plan to buy a piece of art," she says. "I buy it in the moment. When you get divorced, you have to go through this awful thing of listing everything you own. When you actually sit down and write the list, you realize that the only good investments are art and property."

The upstairs living room.

Six framed glossy snake photographs by Guido Mocafico fill the wall of the upstairs living room.

Tamara and her 8 year old girl named Araminta, "Minty".

I am impressed by her closet and especially of the organisation of her own shoes by color, shape, height and style.
