Nanette Lepore: The Ohio native hired Jonathan Adler to give her place a personality while, he recalls, “leaving room for dancing.” The strategy was to render the walls and floors fairly neutral while infusing lots of bold color through furnishings — a mix of Adler’s own pieces, vintage modern furniture, ethnic accents, a touch of Hollywood Regency, and accessories from Lepore’s various collections. Above the mantle hangs a painting of Eva Perón found at a flea market. The glass ship chandelier is antique.
