  1. Oh gosh I LOVE everything you do! I love all the home tours, the shopping with designers, just everything! Please don’t stop! I would love to see a home tour with Laura Slatkin, Carolyn Roehm or maybe an interview with Carolina Herrera. This blog is a wonderful place. You are able to see inside the minds of great people which is something that I am grateful for.

  2. I enjoy being taken away with the lifestyle, beauty, art, and color. It’s a much needed educational escape. Thank you for your time dedicated to all of us who look forward to seeing, your posts.

  3. Much THANKS to Quintessence for style; marvelous interviews; beauty; design and, in general, FABULOUSNESS!! Looking forward to Quintessence with great anticipation in 2015!!

  4. I find the visits to homes very interesting. I’d love to see houses and projects by Ben Pentreath, Michael Smith, Steven Gambrel, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Gil Schafer, Kit Kemp, and Alexa Hampton. It’s inspiring to see inside the studios and fun to see shops, particularly the displays. This of course focuses on established accomplished designers. I’d really love it if you introduced me to new or under published designers. Howard Slatkin is an example of someone who’s work is so high profile that he isn’t often published. The House Beautiful shoot was fun to watch because we really saw your house versus the vignette captured in the photo. Thanks this is a great blog and you do a really great job Happy holidays!

  5. It’s all so good! I love seeing designers in their own ‘habitat’ and getting a look at showhouses I can’t visit but selfishly would love more shopping videos – where do designers like to ‘shop’ and what catches their eye? Looking forward to 2015!


  6. I love this series and am always excited when a new post/video arrives. My favorite features: those featureing designer interviews and shopping trips with “those-in-the-know”. That said, all posts are fantastic. Thanks for this amazing blog!!

  7. Possible visits with: Robert Passal, John Robshaw, Brian McCarthy, Miles Redd, Jeffrey Bilhuber, Steven Gambrel, Nicky Haslam, Lynn Von Kersting, Tom Scheerer, Jonathan Adler, Suzanne Rheinstein for a start….

  8. More visits to designer’s homes, please! Yes to John Robshaw, Lynn Von Kersting and Steven Gambrel. I wonder what John Saladino is up to these days and Lulu deKwiatkowski would be a fun visit.
    Thank you for such fine work.

  9. Truly I love it all, the behind the scenes looks are wonderful. Featuring artists like Frances Palmer to time with Alex, Carolyne, Robert Couturier, all wonderful!

    Here’s to a fabulous year of videos in 2015!
    The Arts by Karena

  10. Ok, I am double dipping but what about Meg Braff? I would love to see her house in Locust Valley and you could visit her shop as well… :-)

  11. Like everyone else who has replied, I too love the interviews and videos of designers and artists. I love the details of their businesses and lives and subsequently when I follow them on Instagram I feel as if I know them through the two of you. How about a behind the scene look at the visual designers that are so fabulous – maybe the group from the 7th floor at Bergdorf? Or maybe a peek into the workings of Veranda magazine. Really it doesn’t matter because everything you do is fabulous…

  12. Dear Stacey and Susanna,
    Please add my enthusiastic praise to the above for your work. I have enjoyed all the voices and images you have so generously presented. A wish list: Suzanne Rheinstein and her daughter in KRB discussing their individual styles. Shopping with Olasky and Sinsteden. I am very interested in the talent of Adam Charlap Hyman. His blog, For Pilar, is another favorite of mine. I am intrigued by the team comprising Tissues Tartar,although they may both live in Europe now, from them I would like a book list and small museums to visit…
    Continued success to you both and many thanks.
    Sincerely, Beth

  13. Dear Stacey and Susanna,

    Thank you so much for all your beautiful video presentations. Here is my bucket list for home tours 2015:

    Happy Holidays.
