We really couldn't be more pro the recent resurgence of Nicky Hilton on the Manhattan social scene. Like, if anyone was born to be Queen Bee in this town, it'd have to be the quiet, reserved, second-in-line hotel heiress with a perfect head of Disney princess blonde hair.
And now - FINALLY - we've a peek inside her home life with husband James Rothschild and their two (adorably named) daughters thanks to Architectural Digest. Expecting gold leafed moldings, cherub motifs, and baroque details worthy of such moneyed family dynasties as the Hiltons and Rothschilds? Try again.
“I grew up in a house full of antiques and fancy fabrics and certain rooms you weren’t allowed to go in,” Nicky explains. “And as a child I always told myself that I will never have that when I’m grown up; I would have a house where no room is off-limits.”
