Once again Happy Thanksgiving week to everyone! Michelle and I will be taking off Thursday and Friday so this will be my last blog until Monday. As one of my clients told me yesterday "Gobble Gobble Until You Wobble!" I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving Day tomorrow and weekend to come! I personal would spend big money to not go to stores on Black Friday but if you are venturing out I hope you have great success! As I have mentioned before Architectural Digest is becoming one of my favorite magazines again. The articles are great, diverse, and once again full of color. Today I want to feature an article about two art collectors in San Francisco. Their home is as diverse as the art that they collect. I love it when people have a passion that they pursue and just buy whatever makes their heart sing! I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did and once again Happy Thanksgiving!
This pink poodle sculpture by Pat Lenz is sure to bring a smile and a giggle to anyone who walks by!
Pink poodle's tail is a grenade and adds quiet a bit of whimsy to the sculpture. You can tell by the grins on Norah and Norman Stone's face that this sculpture tickles their fancy!
Their home was built in 1927 and was designed by Arthur Brown Jr. who also built the San Francisco City Hall and Opera House. This gorgeous home is very traditional on the outside but is full of complete diverse art on the inside! Who says you have to stick by the rules?!
I love the juxtaposition of the traditional wallpaper which is stunning with the more transitional sculpture and console. That door is incredible!
The architecture in this room is so traditional with its moldings only to be filled with Transitional furniture and contemporary art. Two of the art pieces are by Dieter Roth and the neon sculpture is by Bruce Nauman. The simple but elegant draperies are by one of my favorite vendors Rogers & Goffigon.
Another view of the Living Room. I love the side tables!
This beautiful and traditional setting is the spark of interest with the "cat litter" sculpture by Robert Gober. The sculpture keeps the room from being complete transitional filled with antiques.
This gorgeous oversize painting and the puppy vase on the table are by Jeff Koons. What drama it provides to the room!
This room made out of concrete is a gallery featuring painting by Keith Tyson and sculpture and photographs by Matthew Barney. This room could be a setting in a museum.
The Master Suite is filled with a mixture of transitional furniture and traditional antiques. The Murano-glass sconces flanking the sculpture by Dieter Roth are so stunning! The print is by Andy Warhol, who I had the pleasure of meeting and riding in a limo with back in the early 80's. He was quite a character! It was one of my famous moments in my life!
How elegant is this dressing room? Between the mirrors and the silver wallpaper it truly shines! The Venetian glass chandelier is so unique and beautiful! What a cool house with all the different elements of things that this couple loves. It is a true reflection of their personality!

Steel Magnolia Tip # 83: When you wake up in the middle of the night and you can't go back to sleep because your brain is twirling. Start counting your blessings and fall back asleep. All the problems can be fixed the next day!
Last night for dinner I had turkey burger served with sliced zucchini seasoned with Chile Oil and topped with Mozzarella cheese. Yummy!
All the songs on this Tavares album will always remind me of my days at Tulane. I think I danced to many of fraternity parties to this song!
