Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a dress by Carven and shoes by J.Crew.
Happy Tuesday everyone! Tuesday does not get much credit during the week. I think of Tuesday as the day to really dig in on everything I started on Monday. It is my work horse day. Today I want to feature this incredible townhouse in New York that was in ruins before the remodel. Designer Robert Couturier did an amazing job restoring the townhouse to its glory and incorporating owner Andrew Solomon's collections from around the world. Have a super "work horse" Tuesday!
What a beautiful maple paneled study! I love the soothing color of maple and its subtle grain. What a soft spoken room to display treasured collections. The animal skins throws over the two chair seats add such warmth.
There is so much to take in this kitchen! I have never seen a grand piano style stand for a Viking cook top! I adore the feet on the gold cabinet directly behind. The fire place in the room is outstanding and original! Check out the ceiling molding!
Here is another view of this spectacular kitchen!
Fabulous Master Bedroom! The bed is incorporated Chinese carved wood panels--how commanding! The corners on the drapery follow suite in the Chinese feel of the room--gorgeous!!
The dressing room is fit for a king! Robert Couturier utilizes Andrew's embroidered silk panels from China. I am jealous that I have thought of something so cool--but I am sure to copy some day!
The guest room was named "The Ice Cave: because of the artist Stephen Hendee's wired sculpture on the walls and ceiling. Unbelievable! I love the sun in the middle of the roman shades--so happy! This feels like something out of James Bond movie!
OK--I could set in this room for hours and just take in all of the details! The stunning stone fountain is from France and is beautifully high lighted by the wall behind. That center domed ceiling--Super Wow!
Architecturally cool powder room. The rosy copper dado going around the cool sink is a custom-made steampunk-style--too cool!
The Library to featured all Andrew Solomon's prized book collection is the highlight of the whole town house in my opinion. It reminds me of the library in "My Fair Lady" that is one of my favorite movies! I know every song by heart! The upstairs part is just fabulous! The upholstery is so balanced and just stunning!

Last night for dinner I had a lamb burger from Central Market and asaparagus. Delicious!
Love Mariah Carey and love this song!
