Collé’s waste-not philosophy extends to newly bought things, too. In her bedroom, she fashioned a wire grid from Home Depot into a one-of-a-kind headboard. “I could only buy a pack of three, so I have one in the woodshop to hang tools and the other in the studio, which I use as a jail to keep my cats out,” she explains. Speaking of her workspace: Instead of buying a worktable, she made one by affixing the room’s door atop two horses.
As her style evolves, so will the apartment, but she doesn’t see the color story changing anytime soon. “I don’t think I’ll truly get over pink, especially after this experiment,” she says. “My home has become such a comfort and control in my life. I think pink has marked me forever—though I really want to do a carnival-style house and have every room be a different theme and color.” We can’t wait to see it.
In the living room, her Miami Beach–meets–Memphis– meets–Italian Renaissance style comes to life. There’s a creamy sofa she found on Facebook Marketplace; a vintage mirror with an ’80s-era swoop; and on the throw blanket, cow print, a staple she associates with Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. And that sunny nook near the window? Collé jokes that it’s her cats’ living room because it’s mostly where her two felines—Cordelia and Priscilla—lounge in the sun.
