Our friends at Carlton Hobbs never cease to amaze. I was enthralled by this rare set of Chinese wallpapers which formerly hung in Colonial Williamsburg – and can’t wait to base the decoration of a room on these – I may have to include this Linton Park table as well! Oh, and you must have noticed the splendid parquet floor? It’s this kind of attention to detail that has me continually smitten by Carlton Hobbs!
I would would absolutely LOVE to see the above bold and colorful work, Zone 1 painted in 1965 by Larry Zox, mixed into a room with a super chic chintz and perhaps a Willy Rizzo cocktail table.
I’ve always admired the jewelry and decorative objet created by Buccellati. I’m holding an outrageous silver “cavolo” (above) – and it has me thinking that I may just have to replace my Dodie Thayer lettuce tureen with this fantastical piece.
We were delighted to chat with our new friends at Martin du Louvre and can’t wait to visit their gallery in Paris. I’m plotting where I might be able to place Sonia Delounay’s sublime 1954 “Mosaique” and Brad Howe’s delightful 1993 mobile, “Pursuit” pictured above.
I’m drawn to sculpture, especially busts on pedestals, and as such I absolutely couldn’t resist these grand works at Tomasso Brothers.
For our opening day at the fair I’m dressed Palm Beach style (with our trademark WIJW edge) – a mint green cotton suite by Gucci, a Tom Ford pale blue Glenn plaid cotton shirt with French cuffs, silver pearl and pale blue sapphire Seaman Schepps cuff links, retro print silk pocket square in pale blue and white silk, my lovely Lanvin taupe suede sneakers, Rolex Submariner watch, and a Gucci python belt to add that edge I mentioned.
