Two spectacular books were launched last week in New York, Mary McDonald The Allure of Style and The World of Madeline Castaing. Both books are must haves. Mary’s glamorous style jumps from every page with lavish photography. There is no doubt about her design point of view.

The World of Madeline Castaing is a rich retrospective of the work of the great French decorator authored by Emily Evans Eerdmans. Being somewhat of a Castaing groupie, I was taken with is number of photos of Castaings work that I hadn’t seen before.The signing was held in the rarified cadre of the International Fine Art and Antiques Dealer Show. Maureen Footer, Charlotte Moss, David Dunkin and Beth Martell were just a few of the people on hand to have their books signed.
