NY Times: Jamie Drake’s Temporary Rental

I love the chairs and flokati rug. Jamie Drake, interior designer to the likes of Michael Bloomberg and Madonna, managed to decorate his temporary condominium at the cost of $19,400.  The costs include paint, the silk taffeta window treatments, silk pillows, ceiling lights, and the reupholstering of several pieces of furniture.     The desk lamps are from Artemide Tolomeo. The green wall is Forest Moss by Benjamin Moore.  The pillows…

Kelly Wearstler Returns to the Avalon!

Kelly Wearstler is not my obsession, just a passion. In the February 2010 issue of Lonny Magazine, they took an in-depth look at Kelly Wearstler bringing mid-century, Italian flair into the Avalon Hotel. Wearstler did the original interior design when her husband, Brad Korzen, originally redeveloped this 1940’s hotel. To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this Beverly Hills hideaway, Wearstler was back at work updating this chic boutique hotel…


Lonny Magazine Mention!

It was like play a game of “Where’s Waldo?”, but we finally tracked down the Porter Floor Lamp in the latest February 2010 issue of Lonny Magazine. In the talented Ryan Korban’s own Manhattan studio, the Porter Floor Lamp sits inconspicuously in the corner. If you haven’t checked out Lonny Magazine, please do.

Islands Necklace, $388 This one will have to be filed under the “Look, but Don’t Touch” category. Unless, that is, you have $300+ to spend on one necklace. One hauntingly beautiful, etheral, feather-light necklace. Until that day, I’ll have to settle with drooling on my keyboard or learning how to knit like Shadowplay‘s designer. I won’t hold my breath.

Leg Warmers

Surely, your overworked dining chairs get chilly, too?! All day long, being pulled in and out and all around the house. They deserve a little something special to wear. Give them Chair Personality Socks.  My favorite are the argyle variety. What was once plain is now a prepster chair! Get ’em at Charles & Marie. – Unique Furniture and Accessories for the Eclectic, Modern Lifestyle.
