The sad news around the fashion world this morning is Grace Coddington’s departure from Vogue. The creative director is stepping down, but still maintaining an editor-at-large role and will continue to be a spokesperson for Condé Nast. It’s tough to imagine a Vogue without Grace, but we’ll cherish our stockpile of past issues all the more. Here, we take a peek at our favorite interior design moments from a fashion icon. Starting with the cat pillows shown here, of course.

Some collectors allow their homes to feel overtaken by treasure. But not Grace. Her NYC apartment is tastefully laden with books, art, and yes–cats, in a soothing, elegant way.

She makes perhaps the best argument ever for a backsplash made entirely of art.

We should all be so lucky to have a personal treasure trove like this…

….And then we all needed Chanel blankets. And a framed treasure collection hung high.

Of course there was the time her office was adorned with actual kittens

Art. Vintage furnishings. Cat lamp. Best of luck on your next adventures, Grace!
