Vince Camuto's Chateau Ridge home

For anyone who enjoys gawking at epic homes, Vince Camuto’s first book Life of Style is a must-peruse. Camuto, the founder of Nine West and his eponymous accessories brand, is equally passionate about interiors as he is shoes, as one glance at images of his jazz-age style manor Villa Maria, in Water Mill, New York, easily proves. (His Greenwich, Connecticut, residence Chateau Ridge and English Tudor beach getaway Wooldon Manor in Southampton, in case you were wondering, are no less glamorous.)

Life of Style (Assouline), $250, available for purchase on and at select Vince Camuto stores.

The living room featuring the Camuto family crest, and now oft-times referred to as the constellation room, as it features fiber-optic lights which illuminate Vince’s birthdate in the 16th century. A Florentine chandelier centers the room.
