Editor's note: Today I am wearing a cashmere sweater from Athleta, Hermes scarf, wool skirt from Banana Republic, and boots from Coach.
Happy Tuesday! I check the weather every day-- and have NYC in my weather app to see what my Riley will be living in every day. It is not too often that our weather is colder than New York City!!! Oh boy-- stay warm everyone. It is Stock Show-- which often brings about COLD weather. We went to the Rodeo very year when I was little with my grandparents and sat in the Thomas S Burns box. I have such great memories of that! It is such a cool thing that we have so many interesting things to do in Forth Worth and such incredible history and traditions. I love this city! I am fifth generation and proud of it!!!!!
I am still so proud of Mackenzie for introducing me to online articles that I can feature in my blog. Today's is an incredible apartment in New York City on Fifth Avenue. Oh to live on Fifth Avenue--- what a dream!! This apartment designed by Garrow Kedigian is stunning. Enjoy and have a fabulous day!!!!
I love a designer and a client who appreciate antique furniture. The patina is like nothing else. This table is circa 1900 and the antique chairs were founded in the Paris Flea Market. One of these days I am hoping to put together a buying trip to Paris with a few clients. My French and my knowledge of the Flea Market would be so much fun to share with clients--- and almost all of mine are dear friends--- so it would be a blast! This dining room with the rich blue walls and furnished with antiques is a jewel box.
What a gorgeous and classic room . I am loving this man's taste!!!! The Benjamin Moore color of Patriotic White-- that has a hint of blue-- is so lovely as a backdrop. The pair of custom sofas are done in a Nancy Corzine fabric. The single chair was also found in Paris. Beautiful room!!!!!!
What a grand 19th century painting on the stair landing. The portrait has been in the homeowner's family for generations. The antique stools were found in Paris. This staircase is so elegant---- and keep in mind that this is in an apartment!!!! The size of this entry is probably about the size of my Riley's apartment!!!
Love the cabinets taken all the way up to the ceiling. This provides a great look and so much storage. An all white kitchen continues to be my favorite.
A La Cornue stove adds elegance to any kitchen. This one came from the home owner's previous apartment. Kedigian took three rooms--- a staff room, a breakfast room, and a galley work space and created a larger kitchen. Since kitchens are no longer just a space for the help to cook in--- this makes so much sense. Kitchens are now the hub of a house. Beautiful!
What a talented man. I look forward to following his work.

For dinner last night I had steamed brussel sprouts and citrus marinated chicken from Central Market honoring their citrus festival.
This song just makes me want to boogie!
