I am in Elle Décor.com

I was so honoured to be included in Elle Décor.com’s list of Design Insiders’ Weekly Finds, along with fellow bloggers, James of What is James Wearing? and my dear friend, Chris Cox of Easy & Elegant Life.logo-elle-decor-headerHere’s my brief essay on my obsessions:

I bought a 110-year-old farmhouse earlier this summer and have been obsessed with finding the right chairs. First, I bought two elegant white slipper chairs that remind me of Billy Baldwin, who grew up just a few blocks from where I am living. Then, my friend, David Wiesand, gave me a Chinoiserie/Gothic faux bamboo and leather chair, another friend gave me a Louis Ghost chair, and I found a down-filled armchair at a tag sale. I think it’s time to stop.
