It seems that The Season is upon us. So as assiduously as I attempt to catch up around here, ever more wonderful design and inspiration seem to be luring me out and about. As for “comings”, be sure to stop by tomorrow for a fun new Stylish Shopping video with Susanna Salk that celebrates embracing your personal passion in design.
And then on Friday we’ll take a look at the amazing Jacques Garcia Collection for Baker that debuted at High Point, celebrating the designer’s “duality between past and present.”
The International Fine Art & Antique Dealers Show last month was, as usual a wonderful compendium of the rare and exquisite. There was a particularly strong showing of marvelous mirrors such as this George III (circa 1765) white painted example from Ronald Phillips. At over 7-1/2 feet tall, it would make a dramatic statement in any home.
An inspiring visit to the studio of potter Frances Palmer will be the subject of a new video after the holidays.
A packed gathering at Harry and Laura Slatkin’s spectacular townhouse celebrated brother Howard Slatkin’s publication of Fifth Avenue Style with appropriate glamour and elegance.
Likewise, a lovely bouquet at Asprey marked the book party for Nina Campbell’s latest tome.
And last week the 19th annual Rooms with a View here in Connecticut honored Americanism with rooms by twelve interior designers. Below a peek at a portion of the fun vignette by Carey Karlan, imagining a Scrabble match between design legends Sister Parish and Albert Hadley. More soon.
And for those drooling over the Lambertson Truex offerings at Privet House shown Monday, I am happy to report that the store will accept advance phone sales for any readers who spied something specific in the post they just couldn’t live without! Get those credit cards ready!
