The elegant home of Anderson Cooper's mother, featured in New York Magazine's Fall 2010 issue, has the most beautiful details. "It's intensely opulent and over-the-top," observes Toronto blogger Jen Selk. "It's beyond what I could ever imagine doing in my own home, but I like how bold it is. The name Vanderbilt screams money, and so does this apartment. I like how she layers pattern over pattern over pattern and somehow, it works."
