Editor's Note: Today in Palm Springs I am wearing Ann Taylor blouse, jeans. and flats.
We have finished our install in Palm Springs!! Yippee! If I do say so myself everything looks beautiful and I am more than pleased! It is always so much fun to see all my hard work come to life. God bless me with a photographic memory and I can see how a room should be laid out just by looking at the space. My sense of space truly worked out in all the spaces in this house. It is warm, comfortable, and beautiful. I hope to get this home published so sorry no pictures just sneak peaks! Today I am doing an article in the November issue of Architectural Digest on an Gothic home in Southwest England. The home is beautifully furnished and very English which I love and the architecture of the estate itself is stunning! This home is two centuries old and I am sure it could tell many stories if it could talk. Happy Friday everyone have a fabulous weekend!!
Gorgeous estate nestled in the hills!
I love this picture of the homeowners with their dogs in front of this incredible home. They even match which I think is darling! I love the walking sticks in the vestibule. I often collect walking sticks! Look at the molding going around the ceiling... WOW!
The vintage wallpaper on these walls is just incredible! I am a very symmetrical person so I love the many pairs of accessories in this room!
The incredible stripe chair is a George II Gainsborough how incredible?!
The 1825 painting of Coote Sykes ancestors is truly a focal point in this room and of course I love the English gents!
Wow! Could you imagine having your morning coffee or your evening totty in this setting? Incredible!!
This allee of Norway maples was planted in 2000 to honor the new millennium. How stunning!! Gorgeous entrance at the end. What a beautiful place to walk with your dogs!
I love the constant reminders Coote Sykeses were the original owners all over the house. The red coated gentleman was Sir Eyre Coote is on display in the landing. I love all of these old portraits! They too could tell a lot of stories.
The antique canopy on this gorgeous bed in the Master Bedroom sets an incredible tone for the whole bedroom. I love the beautiful chintz repeated all over the room!
What an incredible original kitchen that was indeed only inhabited by servants.
What a gorgeous bookcase in the drawing room that was transformed to hold a TV?! The incredible rug dates to around 1910. How stunning?

Steel Magnolia Tip # 65: Sit down at a table to eat with you family at night. The conversation and bonding is critical!! You don't have to serve a meal like Downton Abbey.. Just sit, eat, talk about your day!
Since I only had wine and cheese for dinner last night.. I decide to take a picture of my delicious omelette that I have been eating every day. We stayed at the Embassy Suites by Hilton which is right around the corner from the house. I loved having these homemade omelettes every morning!
I always love me some Steely Dan!
