Kathy’s Living Room
Part of her compound in upstate New York, it’s very animal friendly: for dogs, cats, and Trixie the pot-bellied pig, shown here on the carpet by Nathalie Lete. Black Pearls, the sculpture by Alison Saar, looks like a giant charm bracelet strung across the ceiling.

Janet’s Living Room
Janet Ruttenberg’s apartment features a mix of old-master and contemporary art. For her own painting Gannochy, Janet made a frame with gold-leaf spokes to resemble rays of the sun. The couch is upholstered in nineteenth-century hand-blocked floral linen with the reverse side of the fabric facing out.

Janet’s Kitchen
Dinner for one in a room designed by Richard Rosen. Janet covered the floral upholstery of her Louis XV armchair in bubble wrap: “I’d like to use clear plastic as tablecloths, actually. I think a lot of it is quite beautiful.” The floral-print window shades were made from a scan of a photograph of a painting and custom-fit by Rosen.

Kathy’s Bedroom
A fantasy playpen with wallpaper by Kiki Smith and a rug of Kathy’s design at the foot of the bed. The sconce is by Kathy. Ozone, a Giant Angora rabbit (“my bedroom bunny”), and Floozy the cat are taking it all in.
