In the Stacks

There is really nothing better than a good stack of books.
I really need to get a library in my house STAT.

Lenny Kravitz in your Bedroom

Maybe Lenny Kravitz has been in your bedroom in one way or another before, but would you have ever guessed he would be designing the wallpaper on your walls?

Well, not only did Lenny open his own design firm Kravitz Design back in 2003 (did you know he did the Flroida Room at the Delano in Miami?), now he has teamed up with Flavor Paper to bring back the 1960's Tropicalismo movement (did you know this existed?).

So, did Lenny Kravitz hit the right note with this collection?
(I had to.)

Happy Birthday Hubby

Happy 29th Birthday to my wonderful husband.

I feel so lucky to have be able to have many more birthdays to celebrate.



Casa de Coto

So I have been working with my most difficult client for months now.
My mother.

Just kidding! She has been a dream! I finally convinced her to paint her walls, change her carpet, and paper the powder room.

It was worth every penny.

Don't you love those glossy black banisters? I do. I think they look like piano keys.

You can see the difference from HERE to the photo below.

The powder room has become a jewel box.

Ralph Lauren makes beautiful wallpaper. This is Ashfield Floral in color Gunmetal.

Harry loves the new house. He goes perfectly with the new color scheme.

By the way, Dorothy Mantooth and Harry Winston are best friends.

I think they will continue to be VERY happy in the new space.


My Home - A tiny Peek

So I have been asked (and I thought it was about time) to share a *little peek* into my abode.

I am dying to know...what do YOU think?

NYC Please

With Summer now here, I have started dreaming of New York in the Fall.
I need to make a trip happen.

Carrie Bradshaw's closet

I can only think that my NYC daydreaming led me to think of Carrie Bradshaw (who is more New York?) and subconsciously I thought how pretty her gray closet was, and wanted one of my very own.


Summer Excitement

I was BEYOND excited when I saw that Bravo was bringing the Rachel Zoe project back for its third season. I am dying for the show to start!

So, to tide myself over I have been staring at these beautiful photos of Rachel in her old abode.
