Queen of Jimmy Choo.... Tamara Mellon's Home

Tamara Mellon, is the stylish founder of Jimmy Choo. We all know Jimmy Choo right?? Well, Harper's Bazaar was let in to her New York apartment and I think you'll be amazed at all the interesting and unique qualities of her place. Her apartment is a mix of high art and glam minimalism....AND let's not forget, a TON of shoes! 

I'm so excited to pick up the new issue and read more about this interesting lady! I hear that in the interview with Harper's, she opens up about her lifestyle, overcoming challenges, and building her Jimmy Choo empire. But, is its true she may sell Jimmy Choo?? Hmmm

Here she is posing with pretty little daughter, Minty. 

Yes, those are photographs of SNAKES.

I really loved the Terence Koh neon installation that reads “love for eternity” in her entryway.  In the upstairs sitting room, there is a Warhol silkscreen of Grace Kelly which is also eye-catching!  In the kitchen, there’s a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting, which she has put onto a track and can be rolled away to reveal a flat-screen television.


For the rest of Tamara's home tour visit the Harper's Site.

  17. I read an article about her once and she is amazing in many ways. She discovered an unknown cobbler from Malaysia and built her entire empire ground up around him. Such amazing taste and drive!
