2013 was a very busy year, a lot of hard work and some rather pleasing accomplishments were achieved.
I finished my first book, An Invitation to the Garden
, started collaborating with the amazingly talented Marie Daage
on my first collection of hand painted dinnerware. I also had the privilege of becoming a regular contributor to one of my favorite publications, Lonny.
The year is winding down with one last treat. I was given Aerin Lauder's beautiful book, Beauty at Home as a Christmas present. Her sage advice and the beautiful photography make it a winner. I wasn’t really prepared for one of the chapters that I found in the book though. The Hamptons master bedroom chapter was a huge happy surprise. The beautiful bedroom is upholstered in one of the first fabrics I designed for my collection, Gramercy. Her description describes the fabric perfectly, “ It’s a little French, a little early American and it reminds me of leaves.” That’s it exactly.
There’s no wall treatment quite as chic as fabric upholstered walls.
It's also the first time I had seen the chaise in Petite Fleur.
The chocolate and white color combination is so beautiful.
