For many, having David Bowie in your bedroom would be decoration enough. But Iman, the Somali-born former model who has been married to the musician for more than two decades, has a passion for interior design. "My husband calls me a chic hoarder," she says. "Even back when I was a model, when the other girls were going to nightclubs, I'd go to flea markets to buy textiles." Her first bedding collection, available at Bed Bath & Beyond and , includes ikat-print linens, indigo pillows, and block-print coverlets inspired by her global finds. "Yves Saint Laurent taught me that a home can feel transporting," says Iman, who also designs fashion, cosmetics, and home fabrics. "Every room should remind you of your travels."
