Betsey Johnson At Home, 1982

Pink!
I found a  decorating book recently at a thrift store, and when I looked through it I was happy to find this photo of Betsey Johnson in the very back. She is pictured in her Manhattan loft with her daughter Lulu, back in 1982. A 3000 square foot space, she had it decorated in bubble-gum pink with glossy black accents and furniture, with art deco touches.
The beginning portion of the text reads "Betsey Johnson thinks pink. Her Manhattan loft borrows colors from the clothes that she designs, exuberant and original, without a hint of snobbery. Her fashion sense frees her to decorate in a quick-change style. This look does not have to be forever; it is emphatically for NOW."
I can't help but wonder if she still has the same loft, and I would sure love to see what it looks like now, if she does!
(The book in which I found this two-page spread is "Living With Color" by Deryck Healey, published by Rand McNally and Company).
