Out & About

Just finished reading Grace about Vogue's uber talented Style Director,  a must read.  Now on to Empress of Fashion: A Life of Diana Vreeland...fascinating.  Can't wait to see the new documentary on her, The Eye has to Travel.
Busy making a million decisions on the house renovation.  Follow me on Pinterest to see what's inspiring the design decisions.
Is the dining room dead??  Michelle over at Remodelsita thinks perhaps.  Meanwhile whatever side you fall on this picture is to die for.  Tell me what you think.
This stunning color combination that Will over at Bright Bazaar featured has me thinking about the same for my new living room.
Today I am heading back to the New York Gift show, I saw so many great things on Sunday and will share more later this week...

Then later this evening on to the long delayed (due to Super Storm Sandy's destruction) Designer Visions Showhouse opening.  I was lucky enough to see the apartments last fall and each one is so different yet are brimming with style.
This year Dering Hall has teamed up with Designer Visions to showcase furniture, lighting and rugs similar to pieces Matthew Patrick Smyth, David Rockwell and Antony Todd, the shows designers have  either used in their rooms or are inspired by.  This is your chance to take a bit of their style home with you.
And this yummy treat found from Sweeteeth is what's keeping me going this week...
