The Incredible Homes of Ralph Lauren

I was so impressed with Ralph Lauren’s interview on The Oprah Show the other day– if you haven’t seen it already, try to, because it is really an amazing American story.  He truly is an American Icon and kids everywhere should see it to remember that you really can make your dreams come true with hard work and determination.  Of course aside from all of that, I have always been and continue to be a fan of his style and design. Oprah said when she first made money she bought Ralph Lauren Body Sheet Towels and then she knew she had moved up in the world.  Those are still my favorite towels!  I remember when my friends and I  got our first “grown-up” apartments in New York City, we all had to have Ralph Lauren bedding in our bedrooms.  We all had different patterns, but layers and layers of ruffle, plaid and floral bedding with multiple patterned pillows and blankets– -all to create the classic Ralph Lauren look.  It took at least twenty minutes every day to make our beds, but it was soooo worth it!  Our rental apartments with plain white walls looked like home once those beds were made!

Ralph and Ricky Lauren have many homes and each home simulates the locale of the home.  Ralph Lauren is the ultimate set designer as each home looks like it was styled for a movie set to depict its exact location.  He is also the ultimate family man who clearly adores his family!  I can imagine his family as the characters in a movie dressed to match each home’s decor.  In Colorado, for the Oprah interview, his family was dressed head to toe in Western wear: worn in jeans, leather, plaid flannels, boots, turquoise, silver etc. Similarly you can imagine them in Bedford in the classic Ralph Lauren Polo look and in Jamaica in whites and ivory linen with hints of bright colors.  He has the most incredible eye and attention to detail and you can see how the different divisions of his fashion lines and fabric lines reflect the different places he loves to live.

Here are some highlights from the Lauren homes:

    I absolutely love these shots, but I think my favorite is the Round Hill home! The room that struck me the most is the room with the Marilyn Monroe shot – Such a great, unexpected accent piece against the all-encompassing wooden structure. I also love the all-white room and pool deck…The simplicity of the white is gorgeous and clean/crisp-looking, especially with the rich blue water in the background. Doesn’t need a thing. Love it!

    I think I am a perso that is pretty good at detail, ,I don’t know how you could
    remember every place for everything there is sooooo much. but I would sure like
    to try. For the record Jamaica is absolutely my favorite. It looks like a dream come
    true.

  4. I was so excited when Oprah featured Ralph Lauren at his ranch in Colorado. I kept pausing my DVR and rewinding to catch more of the details. That place is amazing. It would be like living in a Ralph Lauren catalog! How fun to see his other homes, too. Great post! :)
