Field Trip!!!

Tomorrow I am going to New York and will be in search of all kinds of home goodness to share with you guys!  My friend, Katherine, a Baton Rouge/London/New York/Brooklyn girl, invited me to come and go with her to the Junior League of New York’s Home Tour!  Could I be more excited?  Absolutely not!  When I first got the email from her that mentioned the event, I wrote back and basically said – you need to tell me right now if you are being serious because I am shopping online for airline tickets!  New York is one of my favorite cities on the planet, and I cannot tell you the number of times I have looked at those buildings and thought about how much fun it would to go inside and see the interiors!  Saturday I will be doing JUST THAT!  My brother in law has graciously accepted my LSU ticket and will go in my place!  The tigers will have to make this one happen with out ole Ash!  I’ll be watching from Katherine’s sofa in Brooklyn though!

About the tour- “will showcase stylish homes in Manhattan’s most sought after neighborhoods. Past tours have featured both designers’ own residences as well as their clients, including: Geoffrey Bradfield, Paula Caravelli, Alexandra Champalimaud, Robert Couturier, Diamond Baratta Design, Jamie Drake, Roberta Freymann, Steven Gambrel, Phillip Gorrivan, Thomas Hays, Christopher Hyland, Susan Zises Green, Larry Laslo, Eric Lysdahl, Todd Merrill, Campion Platt, Scott Salvator, Hunt Slonem, Stephanie Stokes, Sara Story, Alan Tanksley, Timothy Whealon, Matthew White, Frank Webb, and Vicente Wolf.”

Take a minute and google any of those names and you will find more beautiful interior images than you can stand!  Here are a few I especially love:

  2. We are going to have so much fun! You did more research than I had done; I adore that kitchen, and how rich is that eggplant on the “Taos” bedroom walls???

    Oh, and my packages from Nettleton Hollow came in … and I realized I have no idea what to do with them. When you get here you will see that there’s loads of random twigs on my dining room table. HELP! 🙂
