[WATCH] Co-Founder of Kate Spade and Frances Valentine Opens Her NYC Townhouse

Step inside the vibrant and historic New York City townhouse of Elyce Arons, the co-founder of fashion brands Frances Valentine and Kate Spade.

As the fourth owner of this storied, nearly 200-year-old West Village home, Elyce has curated a space that seamlessly blends the old with the new. Antique pieces mingle effortlessly with contemporary furniture, creating a dynamic and eclectic atmosphere that is uniquely hers. Original fixtures add to the home's undeniable character, while a vibrant collection of art adorns the walls.

Stepping through the door, you're greeted by a riot of color and prints that reflect her penchant for lively design. Her love of entertaining, too, led her to create a space that exudes warmth and hospitality.

Elyce Arons and Kate Spade founded luxury fashion and accessory brand Frances Valentine in 2016, following their wildly successful foray into fashion with the one-and-only Kate Spade.
