Love how fashion designer Tory Burch has decorated her traditional New York City apartment but lack her billionaire budget? You’re not alone. In this post I’ve brainstormed how you can channel Tory’s colorful yet classic decorating style in your own home without breaking the bank. The Burch residence spans an entire floor (it was originally three separate apartments!) of The Pierre, an iconic Fifth Avenue hotel overlooking Central Park, and was decorated with the help of brilliant architect and interior designer Daniel Romualdez. While we may not have The Pierre’s views of the Park or Mr. Romuadlez on speed dial, we can still study and emulate the home’s unforgettable interior. Read on for my suggestions on how you can get Tory Burch’s timeless interior design look for less.
Let’s begin in the living room, shall we? On the floor Tory has a simple, large natural fiber rug. You can get these practical floor coverings (think jute, sisal, seagrass…!) at great prices from a variety of vendors. Some of my favorites sources for natural fiber rugs online are Pottery Barn, Overstock, and Serena & Lily.
The pale sisal rug above would be a great option if you wanted to channel the look of Tory’s living room (at a fraction of the cost!).
Moving on to this fabulous fireplace moment—the unusual plexiglass coffee table is by artist Yves Klein and is filled with gold leaf. The gold statement may be hard to come by, but you can certainly snag your own acrylic table here, here, or here.
A great, affordable option for a fireplace basket like Tory’s is Pottery Barn’s beachcomber basket which is available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Next up, the sofa. While Tory’s sofa was surely upwards of $10,000 you can easily find a stylish green alternative for less.
Now let’s discuss those seriously opulent walls. We can’t all upholster our spaces in green velvet, but we can paint our walls gorgeous green and it will cost much less. Some close colors?
I’d try Farrow and Ball’s Bancha above or Benjamin Moore’s Eucalyptus Leaf (it may seem like a stretch, but the lovely Maura used it in her living room here and you can see it’s a pretty close match to Tory’s green!).
I love her little stack of antique porcupine quill boxes.
…and her rock crystal obelisks! This simple crystal version is a great option.
Tory uses enormous antique gilt wall brackets to display her blue and white porcelain collection. You can get the look for much less by ordering your own reproduction wall brackets.
Wayfair has a great selection, including the sweet design above.
You could always jazz the settee up with some green tape trim if you really want to channel Tory’s exact look.
As for throw pillows, you can get your own Scalamandre “Le Tigre” velvet lumbar pillow here.
They’re an investment to be sure, but you can count on them never going out of style. Etsy has tons of more affordable options when it comes to velvet animal print pillows.
The designer often accessorizes her space with sparkly clusters of quartz and amethyst.
I have several garden stools in my own home. They’re perfect for setting down a cocktail, displaying a potted plant, placing a book…the list goes on.
Moving on to the library, the orange wall color changes drastically with the light, but looks close to Benjamin Moore’s Mardi Gras Gold.
I just love the marigold yellow velvet armchairs and red tufted sofa.
I found a similar red tufted sofa above.
And some comfy velvet armchairs.
Tory has gorgeous antique imari porcelain throughout the space such as the bowl above.
Fall is just around the corner. Time to pull out the faux fur throws.
The faux fur throw above is on my personal wish list and I like to think it would be Tory approved.
I love that she has a jumbo copy of Seba’s Cabinet of Natural Curiosities on her coffee table.
Also on Tory’s table is the fabulous Cecil Beaton: The Art of the Scrapbook.
An easy Tory get-the-look is to pick up a myrtle topiary from your local nursery or order a preserved boxwood online.
This new Midbrook Table Lamp by Serena & Lily is similar to the table lamps flanking the velvet sofa.
In Tory’s stunning foyer, hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper by Gracie Studio covers the walls.
This chinoiserie wallpaper on Etsy looks like a promising alternative.
I also love the gorgeous demi lune consoles in the foyer.
This wood demi lune is a very pretty, but less formal alternative.
