Happy Tuesday before Thanksgiving! My twins come home from Baton Rouge and New York today and I am so excited to see them! It is making my Thanksgiving weekend extend into wonderful days! I have much to be thankful for! Today I want to talk about a beautiful article featured in Elle Decor show casing a New York apartment that was designed totally around the clients stunning art collection. Thad Hayes did a beautiful job turning a traditional apartment into a transitional space that highlighted the couples art collection! I had to take two art history classes my senior year of business school at Tulane as my elective. I made straight A's in both classes and found that I loved art! The art in this apartment is museum quality. So this article really caught my eye! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Happy Thanksgiving week! Keep the thankful thoughts coming!
The Aldolph Gottlieb painting is the star of the Dining Room but certainly not the only highlight. One of my favorite fabric houses Pierre Frey was used on the arm chairs. The chandelier is vintage by FontanaArte. The shape and the design is stunning!
This entry is incredible! The vintage bench is original made for FDR's Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York. Above it is a gorgeous art piece by Robert Motherwell. The floors are terrazzo which I have always loved and so excited that they are coming back into Vogue.
This end of the Living Room features a painting Ad Reinhardt and a mobile by Alexander Calder. Incredible pieces of art!
Above the beautiful sofa upholster in a Holly Hunt velvet circa 1946 is a beautiful painting by William Baziotes. Centered above the fireplace is a Mark Rothko painting. Rothko was one of my favorite artist that I learned about in Art History class. What a beautiful room!
This beautiful Library paneled in cerused oak with bronze leaf ceiling is a piece of art in itself. The painting above the sofa is by Tetsuo Ochikubo. This is a new artist to me but it is so beautiful done! The Adrian Pearsall revolving chairs is from the 60's. So cool!
The paintings in this sitting room are in Giorgio Cavallon and Tadashi Sato. The desk is circa 1935 designed by Paula Dupre-Lafon and is flanked by George III chairs. Every element in this room is special!
Beautiful clean and calm kitchen!
This room features another Robert Motherwell on the stand and a large painting by Theodoros Stamons. The walls painting in Benjamin Moore Classic Gray sets a beautiful backdrop for this wonderful piece of art!
The stunning painting in this room is by Pat Steir. The bedspread is from another one of my favorite fabric houses Zimmer + Rhode. What a lovely serene room!

Last night for dinner I had new salad that I tried from Central Market called Backyard BBQ. It had cabbage, onions, bacon, and two kinds of sauces. I served it with leftover Turkey Burger. Delicious!
I love all of these old Lionel Richie songs.
