Prince Phillip Radziwill and Devon Radziwill's home: eclectic New York apartment

Devon Radziwill's New York apartment, which she moved in with her husband, Phillip Radziwill, the grandson of Prince Stanislaw Radziwill, is a mix of contemporary and classic elements to create an eclectic look.

 

TCH loves this stunning table display with frosted glass crockery, gorgeous fresh white roses on a glossy black table. The hand-painted glass plates are from the Dior boutique in Paris and inspire Devon to create this setting.

Shop the look: champagne flutes from Pampaloni, silver swans, and turquoise candlesticks from Buccellati, and silverware from the Conran Shop.

"Ghost" chairs from Lucite add to the airiness of the dining area. I love the legs of this Minotti table.



Devon Radziwill is a former staff of Vogue. Perhaps one doesn't need to work now that one is married to a prince, does one?


Devon's coffee table is like a still life, with books, silver ornaments and fresh peonies. The black table is placed on top of a huge zebra print rug. "It is actually made up of four sectionals pushed together", she said, and came from the Cassina shops in Soho, NY.



The open plan area: living/dining/game room/kitchen all rolled into one. Radziwill's apartment is formerly a manufacturing building. “There are elements preserved from the original building—exposed brick walls, high ceilings, wood beams, and pocket doors—that give off a lovely charm.”, said Devon.

I don't really fancy that huge pool table in my living room, but the white uphostery is up my street.




And the still life in its surrounding. Radziwille said she decorated the home herself.  See, without that pool table, the looks is certainly better. It's still there though, the image just doesn't show it.




The simple bedroom is almost monastic but for the frilly, feminine bedlinen. Certainly not what you'd expect a royal bedroom to look like.


The library cum study looks modern with poured concrete flooring, which may look a bit cold in winter.


A close-up image of one of the tall bookshelves. Devon's favourite photo is that of herself and her husband as children. They're childhood sweethearts.


Blue hydrangeas brighten Devon Radziwill's breakfast bar.



These glasses are from Dior, but to us mortals just look like IKEA ones. Perhaps they look better in the flesh.


The dainty little silver boxes, called bonbonnières, are a nod to Prince Radziwill's Greek heritage. They're traditionally wedding or christening favors.

Definitely one of our favorite houses.
