Maggie Gyllenhaal: "How I Decorate Is Similar to How I Dress"
We've long been fans of Restoration Hardware's Belgian farmhouse-chic pieces, so our ears perked up when we heard that the company was launching a new high-end design concept. RH Modern, developed in tandem with top designers—including furniture maker Barlas Baylar, lighting genius Jonathan Browning, and Ben Soleimani, who has had a gorgeous rug line with the company for some years now. It features uber-luxurious, minimalist furnishings, light fixtures, and décor with unique finishes and rich details, like brass and bronze lacquer. Not surprisingly, the collection caught the eye of self-professed decorating obsessive Maggie Gyllenhaal, who stopped by the launch party at RH New York, a gallery in N.Y.C.'s Flatiron neighborhood Thursday night.
"There are a lot of things that my husband [actor Peter Sarsgaard] and I disagree about, but in terms of interiors, we both have very eccentric tastes," she told InStyle, while surveying the new line. In particular, she cited the gold-legged coffee table (starting at $1,295; rhmodern.com) as a piece that would fit nicely into the Brooklyn brownstone she shares with Sarsgaard and their two children. "My overall decorating approach is similar to the way I dress," she elaborates. "The way you decorate where you live and the way you decorate your body is a unique way of saying something about who you are." If her bohemian Alberta Ferretti dress (pictured above) is indicative of anything, we suspect she's got one superbly eclectic home.
