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"!!!!

Retuning from NYC's fashion world to 
LA's design world....
Los Angeles native Scotti Sitz 
opened GARDE at 7418 Beverly Boulevard
last March!!!

Influenced by her time at 
Calvin Klein & Giorgio Armani
Sitz's aesthetic is "clean & modern"!!!

She infuses the store with a primarily neutral color palette,
from taupe & stone to grey & greige ..... 
plus a selection of dark indigo solids, 
stripes & patterns.
Buying only what she "loves" .......
this store raises the bar for 
"chic & contemporary style" in LA!!! 


A fabulous "accessorator" find in LA last month .....
& a real LA "must-shop"!!!!

Color Is Everywhere .... Giving Stripes New Meaning!!!

I've heard of Joseph's "Coat of Many Colors" .....
but never Southampton's "Fence of Many Colors" ....
yet, here it is at Gem Fence!!!

I never thought of using color this way ....
but, it would certainly add an
"accessorator twist" 
to a plain grey shingled house!!!

Wonder what my neighbors would say if I put it up!!!

These divine porcelain "Owl Houses," 
created by internationally renown Chinese artist
handmade painted in traditional Chinese patterns,
are stunning!!!!

Probably the least political of WeiWei's work ....
they were created for San Francisco's
by gallerist and philanthropist 
 
I found them at Cheryl's eponymous
exhibition at NYC"s

They are absolutely divine .....
& would look spectacular "accessorating" my garden,
even though there are no screech owls in
East Hampton!!!
