I returned to Carla Sozzani's
10 Corso Como last week 
during Milan's design extravaganza ....
& was again awed by the extraordinary talent of 
artist/designer Chris Ruhs!!!

This time I climbed the circular staircase 
above the gallery .....
to find this brilliant roof garden!!!

There was so much to see.....
murals, planters, furniture, mosaics, all things "art" .....
plus the spectacular garden folly!!!

It is the "ultimate accessoration of accessorations"!!!!

Sometimes Milan Design Week can feel like a secret society ....
especially for me!!!

But, standing in front of "design guru"  
new Tortona office/studio
I immediately sensed this wasn't a random
collection of oil drums!!!

I knew this was a very specific "Navone-blue" installation,
thought-out with great detail 
by the "accessorator supreme" herself!!!

WOW, I realized I had finally broken
the secret "design code" ....
& maybe I'm really part of this "design thing"!!!

"Accessoration Supreme" @ New David Zwirner Gallery!

The new David Zwirner Gallery on 20th Street,
designed by architect Annabelle Selldorf,
is stunning & features
incredible "historical" works of art for resale.
I especially adored the spectacular 

But this "quirky accessorator" 
became obsessed with
this sublime quasi-Knoll table,
 encircled by this melange
of brilliantly colored quasi-Eames chairs .....
DIVINE!!!!

Makes any staff lunch a treat ...
wonder how you get an invitation!!!!

It's "Art Fair" week in NYC ......
& others toooo numerous to mention!!!

We "art accessorators" do
sooo much walking & soooo much talking
on soooo much concrete .....
we're exhausted!!!

So, the most important "accessorations" at art fairs
are the chic "rest spots" 
where you can have a coffee, chat about art, 
& rest those tired tootsies!!!

These "spots" are at The Armory Show at Pier 94 .....
aren't they divine!!!
