Walking into Christian Siriano’s Chelsea apartment is truly an antique lover’s dream. When we decided to be flies on the wall for a weekday dinner with the fashion designer and his fiancé — music producer and singer Brad Walsh — we had no idea of the vintage paradise we were stumbling into. Forgetting all things fashion for a moment, we couldn’t really believe how Siriano and Walsh had created a rustic, country smack in the middle of Manhattan; it’s not an easy feat.
What’s more, everything from the dachshund named Bear to Walsh’s open air loft studio upstairs, to the 11-foot-tall mirror the duo fished out of the back of a store in Brooklyn invoked some serious NYC real estate envy (come on, can you blame us?). And, as if that wasn’t enough, upon our house tour, the couple told us all about the Danbury home they’d recently purchased and are in the midst of renovating with some serious TLC. Follow up piece, anyone?
