Editor's Note: Today I am wearing pencil skirt from J.Crew, cashmere sweater (I cut the tag out long ago and I don't remember who it is by--but it is one of my favorites), a belt from Hobbes in London, and Ann Taylor patent leather pumps.
In part of my Christmas holiday frenzy I am trying to straight up my mail piles at home on the buffet. I did not realize that my September Architectural Digest Issue was not opened with some old mail. I have not gotten a chance to go through the entire magazine yet but I did find this article on Marc Jacobs townhouse in New York that was so worthy of writing my blog on today. I love Marc Jacobs work in the clothing industry and it is so much fun to see how a clothing designers style translates into their home. I know that you will enjoy it as much as I did. Happy Tuesday everyone! 12 days till Christmas. Make them count!
I love the cover of the magazine with his precious dog Neville sitting in the entry. The article talks about how Neville has full run of his place. Which in my opinion should be every four legged child luxury!
How elegant is this entry?! I love the beautiful cabinet from Philip and Kelvin LaVerne with the Jansen mirror above. Stunning!
Picture of Marc Jacobs in his garden. What an incredible sculpture!
What an elegant and sleek living room! You noticed the pocket above the drapery treatment which is built into the structure of the room. I am doing this more and more in drapery treatments on my job! Here in the Living Room another shoot of Neville who apparently has 200,000 Instagram followers. I need to learn Neville's secret!
The painting above the fireplace is a 1920 Ellsworth Kelly painting. So elegant and gorgeous! The mantle was custom made out of mica. Also beautiful!
This room has so many elements in it that are note worthy of highlighting. The Gerhard Richter painting above the fireplace is so haunting beautiful. I love the cocktail table that is Gracie lacquer with the incredible 18th century Coromandel panel from Mallette and a Sean Landers bust. The Canovas and Lee Jofa fabrics in the room are equally stunning!
The opposite end of this incredible TV room boast a painting by Richard Prince. Along with a custom designed sofa by Jonas. The room is so beautiful balanced and looks comfy at every seat! One of my prerequistes for a TV room.
The Dining Room is beautiful but the URS Fisher art work steals the show!
This all marble Master Bath is beyond stunning! I love the use of brass which is making such a comeback now. The 19th century urns on either side of the tub add such class to the tube.
Yes please to this closet!
The toad and lily pad in the garden are fabulous! They are by Farconis-Zavier Llanne.
What a beautiful clean lined Master Bedroom. The six painting by John Currin make the room look like a small museum. Another Janice piece lives in this room which is the dresser.
A beautiful portrait by Elizabeth Peyton sets the tone for this room.
I love this picture of Neville hanging on the settee like he owns the place.
Another beautiful vignette with incredible art work!

Steel Magnolia Tip # 95: Count your blessings everyday and twice on Sunday.
Dinner last night was a spicy crab cake with jalaopeno from Central Market with a grilled tomato with mozzarella with crab dip on top of arugula salad. I got a little fancy last night and it was delicious!
This was the first song that I knew of from Maroon 5 and it is still one of my favorites!
