Iris Apfel is an American business woman, interior designer, fashion icon, and an outright badass. She takes maximalist style to soaring heights and we are slightly obsessed. We’re going to go ahead and say it: Iris Apfel is a goddess. With crazy glasses, jewelry that weighs more than she does, and an overall flee-market-slash-desert-bazaar-chic look, it’s easy to acknowledge that the woman is brimming with style inspiration. The 97-year-old has an attitude that is contagious and a style that will stand the test of time. Let’s enter the colorful, beautiful, chaotic world of all things Iris Apfel aka the queen of maximalism… eek, we are excited!
Iris Apfel’s best-ever quotes will make you laugh, cry and want to rejig your wardrobe ASAP.
Iris Apfel’s fashion sense is about as eccentric as it gets. She is a master of layering clothing and jewelry, and mixing patterns and colors, knows firsthand the importance of accessorizing. From feathers, pom poms, large glasses, embroidery, bright colors, lots of chunky jewelry, to dramatic textures – she’s everything that we love and so much more. Here are a few of our favorite looks from her.

We could discuss Iris all day, err day – but for now we are going to use inspiration from her to start designing new creations here at Boho Luxe Home. Maybe our new motto, and everyone’s motto, should be – What would Iris do?! 🙂 We think that she would fully embrace our global pillows, art, fabric, wallpapers, and accessories. Us maximalists have to stick together! Tell us, are you digging Apfel’s style?
