It seems Madonna’s penchant for reinventing herself extends beyond music. Her English manor was profiled in the August 2005 issue of Vogue, and everything, from the decor to Madge herself, couldn’t possibly be more at home in the bucolic countryside.

Compare this to her Art Deco-inspired Manhattan apartment, featured in Architectural Digest over a decade before she was feeding chickens on her front lawn. What strikes me most about Madonna’s apartment (pictured below) is how current it feels. Even though the space was photographed in 1991, many of the rooms, especially the kitchen and the hallway, feel timeless.

With a fresh coat of paint and some strategic furniture swaps, this apartment could be a chic, modern space with an Art Deco vibe. (Not dissimilar to some of Kelly Wearstler's spaces...)

I love how completely Madonna commits herself to a look, be it in music or in design. If there’s one thing to learn from her transformations, both personal and decorative, it’s go big or go home.
