You know Amanda Brooks. Barneys surprised everyone when they appointed her fashion director last year despite her lack of experience in retail, and Brooks surprised Barneys (and everyone else) right back when she announced she was leaving the new post to move with her family to Oxfordshire, England, for a "creative sabbatical." But before she goes, you can have a look at her New York apartment, courtesy of Garance Doré.
The space is colorfully eclectic with bright touches from photos (like the sweet one of herself and her "fashion fairy godmother," Diane von Ferstenberg) and giant canvases painted by her artist husband Christopher Brooks. We're especially enamored with her darling golden retriever and hate to see him go as much as his owner. Swing by GaraceDore.com for a look.
