Editor’s note: Today I am in a blouse from Alexander Wang and dress shorts from Theory.
Happy Wednesday!! What a whirlwind week so far at my Arlington job! Draperies are getting installed ... tile is finishing up...the carpet was installed yesterday ... and the mantel finally arrived. It will be assembled today. The mantel is custom limestone made to order for the space. Many hours of planning! The banquette was delivered this morning and the beds assembled in the master and downstairs guest so final measurements can be done for the bed skirts. Everything is looking magnificent. I am always nervous during installation that something might go wrong... but so far so good. No snags. Praise God!!! Poor Mackenzie was without internet Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning because her blond boss decided to move the AT&T box in the back.... and it went dead. I have no idea what I did... but I sure did it! I was so thankful to see the truck pull up to correct my mistake at 10:00 instead of noon. Since everything is computerized now ( I still hate it.....loved my handwritten invoices, purchase orders, and ledger!) I caused quite the problem. We have always had spotty coverage since we moved into my new studio... so hopefully this will turn out to be a happy mistake and the wonderful AT&T technician will make it all better! The appliances get installed tomorrow... moving that huge refrigerator over the new hardwood floors makes me nervous.... but I know these professionals do this all of the time.
Today’s article comes from the September issue of Elle Decor. When I was reading the magazine in the blazing heat on Sunday (I stood in the pool..... much better!) this article exploded off the page with it’s fabulous color! What a cool article... this building on Rodeo Drive that was formerly a Brooks Brothers has been transformed by Louis Vuitton into the “Artycapucines” exhibit showcasing special edition handbags. Louis Vuitton tapped six contemporary artists from as far away as South Africa to design the bags. The exhibit in this 22,000 square foot building will run until September 15th... then the building will become a Chevalier Blanc hotel. I am sure the handbags are a work of art and a sight to behold... but I was attracted to the interiors. The vivid colors used and the upholstery... and the art!!!...is amazing. Enjoy this incredible exhibit and have a super hump day. Can you believe that August is nearly half over???????
The windows created for this exhibit send me to the moon and back!!!!!
The classic Louis Vuitton Damier checkerboard is on the floor, walls, and ceiling. How cool!
This electric pink staircase leading to the canary yellow atrium ... complete with pink palm trees... makes QUITE the statement!
Stephen Sprouse’s Louis Vuitton logo painted on the walls and floor set the stage for the artist’s inspired scarves...... that I thought were pieces of art ! I have an Emilio Pucci scarf hanging above my desk at work.....I have always had a thing for framing scarves!
Sarah Andelman was hired to curate this “pop-up”shop. “The point was to bring together all the categories—fashion, Objets Nomades, books—in a very colorful space conceived especially for L.A.” What fun and how special!!!!!!! I sure wish I could see it in person!
