To oversee the home’s restoration, O’Keeffe called upon her assistant, Maria Chabot. While Chabot was responsible for the layout of the studio, home, and garden, the style of the interior was dictated by O’Keeffe. Her initial design showcased white walls and bare surfaces, but by the early 1970s, she’d begun to experiment with soulful earth tones. Though her tastes continued to evolve, her preference for sleek, modernist furnishings never wavered. Like all of O’Keeffe’s homes, Abiquiu displayed the same flair for rigorous simplicity evident in her paintings.
