Fashion designers...



... always have the best homes.

This one belongs to Martin Grant.

They do! They don't have that slightly embalmed, a-little-too-fussed-with feeling that decorators inevitably give to their homes.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but you might enjoy this: Dressing the Home (although not so much for the writing).

I still need to buy it. What am I waiting for?

I think I need to make one of those balloony floor lamps.

Love the floor ... but everything else seems so impoverished ...

Beautiful home for sure. But it's the bones that do it. The hardwood look uber expensive and the plain white walls seal the deal. You could put Ikea up in that mofo and it would still look preddy good. It's like all the ads you see for Roche Bobois. Sure, the furniture's nice, but what makes the images really special are the 18 foot high ceilings and the $20/sqft floors. Not saying furniture don't matter, but walls and floors matter a lot more.

The density of furniture is just right in these rooms. That's what keeps it relaxed and livable.

Conversely, interior designers always have the best clothes...

Yeah, you're right. People like Charlotte Moss and Bunny Williams look really fabulous in their muu muus.

Charlotte reminds me of Mrs. Roper, only with a bigger budget.

Please-- I wasn't referring to Charlotte Moss or Bunny Williams, both of whom mean nothing to me.

I'm talking about the hot young things...

Don't hate.

Must you cast off the Youth-Challenged decorators, like the Inuits putting their elders out to see on ice floes?

So cold, so final...

OY...should I paint my rooms white after all? Maybe I should. It looks so great here...

If you have tons of natural light, it looks great. Otherwise, you could end up with Renters' White.

Paris can be drizzly and gray for months at a time. I wouldn't say that this seems impoverished, per se, but for me it lacks the warmth and coziness that I require to avoid slitting my wrists during long stretches of bleak weather.

Avoid Seattle.
