G Albert Hadley in his fabled apartment on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The paint on his living room walls was mixed with glitter to provide a subtle variation in color. 84 Lonny december 2010 entleman’s uarters Q As Albert Hadley closes the doors to Albert Hadley Inc., Lonny celebrates his career with an intimate look inside his home E Vogue editor Diana Vreeland was a friend and colleague of Hadley’s, and “the only genius I ever knew,” he says. The staff of Parish-Hadley bought this Alexander Liberman painting, which originally belonged to Vreeland, as a gift for Hadley from the 1990 Sotheby’s auction of her estate. ntering Albert Hadley’s Upper East Side apartment amounts to crossing into another, better, New York—into the dazzling fantasy of Manhattan that lures so many thousands of young people to the city with visions of glamorous parties and scintillating talk. Hadley, of course, needs no introduction. Along with his late business partner, the blue-blooded Sister Parish, he designed some of the most glorious rooms ever to grace the nation’s residences, like Babe Paley’s “taxicab yellow” drawing room and Brooke Astor’s oxblood-red library. He helped decorate the Kennedy White House, as well as Greentree, the Whitneys’ Gatsbyesque estate on eastern Long Island. Hadley and Parish are the only two interior designers whose work is on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institution, Written by Robert Leleux Photography by Patrick Cline Art Direction by Michelle Adams 2010 december Lonny 85
