Peek Into Our New Favorite Interior Design Shop (It’s Casa Crack!)


Apartment living in NYC can be a little well, hard, so we're always on the lookout for fresh design inspo. One of our favorite new home decor obsessions is West Village spot Overbey and Dunn (co-owned by Tom Dunn and Molly Kavanagh), host to life-changing ever-changing installations of antique furniture, home accents, and one-of-a-kind bric-a-brac so ready for "APT with LSD." Their newest collection, entitled "American Beauty, A Pied-á-Terre," was curated by none other than photog-slash-philanthropist Claiborne Swanson Frank. Pieces were inspired by her book
American Beauty
— think Native American pants and tops, tripod lamps, and ready-to-frame vintage flags.

"I wanted to create a space that celebrated my love of everything old world Americana," said Frank. "It was amazing to collaborate with Tom and bring this vision of the book to life in one room. I have a great love of interior design, and the installation gave me a wonderful opportunity to translate my aesthetic into a different visual backdrop." With a stint at Vogue under her belt, we think Claiborne is the perfect style scribe, and we're totally digging this installation—now, if you'll excuse us, we're off to stock up on our July 4 decorations. We're clearly going all-out this year. Does a swag reference work here?
