ROOM OF THE MONTH


1 BALLARD DESIGNS, X-BENCH IN CANVAS RUST SUNBRELLA, $239 2 WEST ELM, NATURAL TREE-STUMP SIDE TABLE, $199 3 CIRCA LIGHTING, ANTIQUE GOLD LEAF GOURD LAMP, $609 4 MADELINE WEINREB, RED SATIN LUCE

ALTHOUGH ROBERT BURKE NO LONGER LIVES IN THIS MURRAY HILL APARTMENT (RUMOR HAS IT SOMEONE MADE AN OFFER AFTER VIEWING PICTURES ON A DESIGN BLOG), THE PALETTE OF RUSTY EARTH TONES FEEL RIGHT FOR FALL. THE APARTMENT WAS DESIGNED BY BURKE'S FRIEND, DECORATOR TODD ROMANO AND HAS HIS SIGNATURE COLLECTED LOOK. I WONDER WHAT HIS NEW LIVING ROOM LOOKS LIKE? I'M SURE IT'S EQUALLY CHIC!

GIRL CRUSH: CLEMENCE POESY


CLÉMENCE POÉSY IS THE EPITOME OF FRENCH GIRL CHIC. I HAVE A MILD OBSESSION WITH THE FRENCH "IT" GIRL AND HAVE ENJOYED SEEING HER ON GOSSIP GIRL THIS SEASON. SHE HAS TERRIFIC STYLE AND I REGULARLY LOOK HER UP ON THE INTERNET TO SEE WHAT SHE'S BEEN WEARING. I LOVE HER EFFORTLESS STYLE AND ESPECIALLY HER DISHEVELED HAIR...OH TO BE FRENCH!

MY LOVE OF THE COLOR GREEN IS NO SECRET. MY FAVORITE ACCESSORIES INCLUDE A SILK GREEN CLUTCH AND SUEDE GREEN LOAFERS. ONE OF MY YOUNGER COUSINS SEPARATES MY SISTER AND I BY REMEMBERING ME AS "THE ONE WITH THE GREEN SHOES." WHILE I NORMALLY GRAVITATE TOWARDS CELADON, LIME, AND OF COURSE, KELLY GREEN, LATELY I HAVE DEVELOPED AN INTEREST IN OLIVE GREEN. OLIVE GREEN LOOKS GREAT AGAINST OTHER NEUTRALS AND CLASSIC COLORS LIKE BLACK, CREAM, AND NAVY. RIGHT NOW I AM LOVING IT AS AN ACCENT AGAINST DEEP PURPLES AND ORANGES.

HALLOWEEN IS ALWAYS A FUN HOLIDAY AND IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A THEMED PARTY. A FEW YEARS AGO I WENT TO A "BOB" PARTY, WHERE GUESTS DRESSED UP AS THEIR FAVORITE "BOB." I WENT AS BOB THE BUILDER, MY BOYFRIEND AS BOBBY JONES, AND SO ON. IT WAS A GREAT IDEA FOR A PARTY AND WE SAW SOME REALLY UNIQUE COSTUMES. I STILL HAVEN'T DECIDED WHAT TO BE THIS YEAR...LUCKILY I HAVE ANOTHER WEEK TO DECIDE!

IT'S TRUE IN FASHION AS THEY SAY, "WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND" AND THAT CERTAINLY APPLIES TO THE CURRENT LEOPARD CRAZE. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE LEOPARD PRINT IS NEVER REALLY OUT OF STYLE AND ENJOY WEARING IT AND ALSO DECORATING WITH IT. I LOVE LEOPARD IN SMALL DOSES, ESPECIALLY PILLOWS OR ACCESSORIES, LIKE A SCARF OR HANDBAG. I AM LOVING IT IN LARGER APPLICATIONS LIKE BALLARD DESIGNS' FLANNEL SHEET SET AND THEIR INDOOR/OUTDOOR RUGS, WHICH COMES IN FOUR FANTASTIC COLORS....SO HARD TO CHOOSE!

ONE OF THE GREATEST THINGS ABOUT WATCHING MAD MEN IS THE SET AND CERTAINLY THE WARDROBE. THE MAD MEN SET IS KNOWN FOR ITS EXACTING PERIOD DETAIL AND THIS SEASON DIDN'T DISAPPOINT WITH THE ADDITION OF THE NEW STERLING COOPER DRAPER PRYCE OFFICES AND DON'S CITY APARTMENT. I LOVED SEEING THE NEW OFFICE MOVE TOWARD A SLEEK AND MODERN LOOK WITH LOTS OF BRIGHT WHITES OFFSET BY BOLD, PRIMARY COLORED FURNITURE. IT'S ALSO FUN SEEING THE PERSONALITY OF EACH CHARACTER DISPLAYED IN THEIR RESPECTIVE OFFICE. ROGER'S OFFICE IS MY FAVORITE WITH ITS EERO SAARINEN TULIP TABLES, WHITE MIRRORED CONSOLE, AND GRAPHIC BLACK AND WHITE CURTAINS.

AS FOR THE FASHION, TIME MARCHES ON, AND THE CHARACTER'S ENSEMBLES HAVE SLOWLY CHANGED THROUGH THE SEASONS. DON'S NEW COLORS THIS SEASON SEEM TO BE BLACK, WHITE, AND GREY, COMPLIMENTED BY SKINNY TIES AND AVIATORS. BETTY HAS TRADED IN HER FROCKS IN FAVOR OF ROOMIER SUITS AND DOUBLE-STRAND PEARLS. PEGGY DID A LOT OF GROWING UP THIS SEASON SPORTING A NEW HAIRCUT AND A MORE SOPHISTICATED, FASHION-FORWARD WARDROBE.

DON'T MISS THE SEASON FINALE THIS SUNDAY ON AMC AT 10:00!

ONE OF MY FAVORITE INDULGENCES IS HAVING FRESH-CUT FLOWERS IN OUR HOME. FRESH FLOWERS ARE A GREAT MOOD LIFTER AND CAN INSTANTLY BRIGHTEN A SPACE. I ENJOY CRAFTING FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS AND ALWAYS HAVE A FUN TIME SELECTING JUST THE RIGHT BLOSSOMS TO CREATE A UNIQUE ARRANGEMENT. I LOVE THE ABUNDANCE OF BRANCHES THAT ARE AVAILABLE IN THE FALL. BRANCHES LOOK TERRIFIC IN LARGE ARRANGEMENTS AND ADD A NICE NATURAL TOUCH. PERK UP YOUR SPACE WITH ONE OF THESE ARRANGEMENTS OR TAKE INSPIRATION FROM THEM AND MAKE YOUR OWN.

NARROW IN DESIGN AND FUNCTIONAL FOR BOTH DISPLAY AND STORAGE, THE CONSOLE TABLE IS ONE OF THE MOST PRACTICAL AND VERSATILE PIECES OF FURNITURE. MOST OFTEN USED IN ENTRYWAYS, THEY CAN ALSO MOONLIGHT IN DINING ROOMS AS A SIDEBOARD, AS AN EXTRA SURFACE IN A BATHROOM OR CLOSET, OR DO DOUBLE DUTY AS A DESK.

THEY ARE ESSENTIAL TO ANY ENTRYWAY TO GIVE YOU A PLACE TO ORGANIZE WHAT IS NATURALLY KEPT THERE, SUCH AS KEYS AND UMBRELLAS, AND WHAT IS AWAITING REMOVAL TO ANOTHER LOCATION, SUCH AS MAIL AND SHOES. DEPENDING ON YOUR STYLE, NEEDS AND AMOUNT OF SPACE, YOU CAN FIND A CONSOLE WITH A SIMPLE TOP TO REST YOUR ESSENTIALS, OR A VERSION WITH DRAWERS OR SHELVES FOR DEEPER ORGANIZING.

INSPIRATION: INDIGO LIGHT


FORMER VOGUE STAFFER (SHE WAS EDITOR-IN-CHIEF ANNA WINTOUR'S ASSISTANT) CLAIBORNE SWANSON FRANK (PICTURED AT TOP LEFT) HAS DECIDED TO PURSUE A LIFELONG DREAM OF A CAREER IN PHOTOGRAPHY. HER FIRST COLLECTION IS CALLED "INDIGO LIGHT," NAMED FOR HER IDEA OF "LIGHT," THE "BEAUTY, PASSION, AND AUTHENTICITY" THAT SHE BELIEVES ALL OF HER SUBJECTS SHARE. THE PORTRAITS INCLUDE FRANK'S SISTERS, VERONICA SWANSON BEARD AND ALEXIS TRAINA, AS WELL AS DESIGNER ALEXANDRA LIND ROSE, THREAD SOCIAL'S BETH BLAKE, AND SINGER VANESSA CARLETON.

HER GOAL FOR "INDIGO LIGHT" WAS "TO FIND SOMETHING THAT TAKES YOUR BREATH AWAY....I DREAM TO SHOOT MY VISION OF SPIRIT AND SOUL. I SET OUT TO TAKE PORTRAITS THAT CAPTURE WOMEN IN THEIR GREATEST BEAUTY AND TRUTH, WHATEVER THAT MAY BE."

LOOK FORWARD TO HER NEXT PROJECT WHERE SHE TURNS THE LENS ONTO INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN OF HER MOTHER'S GENERATION.
