The Parties Over

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House has finally come to an end. It was heartbreaking to watch my show house room be dismembered yesterday, but my excitement to have been a part of it is still alive. I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE photo's from all the functions and party's.

Life has been such a world-wind the past two months. Now that I've found a moment to catch my breath, I am realizing all that I need to catch-up on.
First things first, I am dying to walk through Bergdorf's....I am always so inspired by their shoe department. There are just so many amazing design ideas in high-end fashion and they really allow my mind to float outside the box.
Secondly and equally as important, I am excited to check out the International Contemporary Furniture Fair taking place at the Jacob Javits Center on May 16th through the 19th. After such a crazy-wonderful experience, like Kips Bay, I really need something to re-charge my design battery and it's just so much fun to explore these international concepts.

I have heard such wonderful reviews about the special exhibition at the MET, The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion. The exhibit captures modeling over a period of 50 years, from 1947-1997. I can't wait to take my daughter!
Springtime in New York is always filled with such activity and inspiration. I am most excited to spend some quality time with my family and dig into some really great projects I have coming.
