Editor's note: Today I am wearing a white blouse Banana Republic, jacket from Anthropologie, cropped pants from Escada, and shoes by Betty Mueller.
Happy Tuesday! Another sunny day in the 60s---- you gotta love Texas in January. We have almost as many pretty days as we do yucky ones. I am always so happy for the Rodeo when we have nice weather. So often we get ice...... Did you know that the Fort Worth Rodeo was the first indoor Rodeo??? Way to go Fort Worth!! We have a history in this city for having people live here that have grand and glorious ideas that they make happen. Look at our museums------ they are outstanding by any measure. I am proud to be 5th generation in this wonderful city. Today is the second day of the week-- the " workhorse " day. Whatever did not get started yesterday better get under way today!!!!
Today's article I found in Veranda. This apartment combined two apartments on two different floor--- a feat accomplished by architect John B. Murray. The staircase was the absolute hardest part... but a great architect can do amazing things. The interiors designed by Tammy Connor from Charleston brought Central Park colors into the space. Such a beautiful and well done job! Enjoy and have a super day!
Oh my---- what a view. What a way to start or finish a day in NYC.
One of the special features in the apartment. The owners too artist Scott Waterman to Central Park to decide on an inspiration for this mural. How special and fabulous is that!!!!! The mural incorporates bridges, stones, and lakes . The directoire settee is quiet and elegant against this oh so special wall.
The colors in this living room reflect colors in Central Park beautiful ,graceful, and well thought out. My favorite part of the room is the art--- the large piece over the sofa is from Esteban Vincent's and the two smaller on the right from Henri Matisse.
Small but beautiful dining area. The custom table from Rose Tarlow Melrose house is the perfect scale with the antique Biedermeier chairs upholstered in a Jerry Pair leather.
The kitchen is brought into the family room with this luscious blue lacquer . The white marble gleams against the beautiful blue. That vent a hood is fabulous-- a piece of jewelry to the room. The tilting oculus ( I did not know this term!! I learn something new every day!!) above their sofa brings in natural light from the stairwell. What an incredible architectural feature to a room!!! The rich greens next to the royal blue is stunning.
Another beautiful room with gorgeous moulding and a beautiful traditional fireplace in this study. The small dining table and chairs create an intimate place for supper.
What a stunning desk in the study--- 1940s danish. Beautiful lines and very classy. The pendant over the desk steals the show--what drama!! It is from Lomomomo. Breathtaking.
The staircase that was so hard to create. So sweeping and stately. You can see the oculus that brings natural light into the family room on the wall.
So many aspects of this bedroom that I love. The walls are covered in a fabric from Lee Jofa and applied on the wrong side to give a fades quality. The window seat tucked into an alcove is perfect with the tiny built in bookcases and wall mounted reading lights.
Beautiful tub from Waterworks.
A moment in the bedroom featuring a desk with a beautiful stretcher . The orange piece of art by Susan Vecsey really pops against the fabric wall.
