Pin it button

Audrey Hepburn might have changed the face of 60s fashion in Breakfast at Tiffany's, but her iconic New York apartment from the film has inspired trends that feel as modern as ever. It turns out that the open shelving, apple crates, and zebra skin rugs that are so popular today can be found in Holly Golightly's pad from 1961.

1. The half bathtub sofa is incredibly creative, but maybe not the best living room solution for comfort. The Loop 2 seat sofa by Arper is a close aesthetic look, and is offered in a purple felt fabric from Kravdrat called Divina 696.

2. Accent a purple sofa with hot fuchsia cushions from Designers Guild, $145.

3. Apple crates make for perfect storage, or can be turned upside down for a haphazard coffee table. Eucalpytus Storage Crates from CB2, $29.95 each.

4. There is a bit of trellis woodwork near the kitchen in Holly's apartment. This Tessella wallpaper from Farrow and Ball gives a similar effect.

5. Vintage Storage trunks offer more storage, with that freshly traveled vibe that Holly Golightly was so famous for. 1st Dibs.

6. A turntable is essential for hosting parties. Urban Outfitters, $160.

7. Go old school with a classic telephone on a landline. PB Grand Telephone from Pottery Barn, $99.

8. Cowhide Zebra Rug from ABC Home, $799.

9. Open Shelving: the Algot system from IKEA, $127.48.

Throughly modern retro!
