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"!!!! 

Milan Style 2013 ..... An Ode to "Don't Fence Me In"!!!!

Love Milan Design Week ....
everything looks like an "accessoration supreme"!!!!

This is a sublime updated "fence accessoration," 
that would be absolutely fabulous 
in East Hampton!!!

Yesterdays favorite "accessoration supreme" 
in all of Doha .....

And today W.R. & I are gong to figure out 
where to buy them ..... 
& how to bring them back to NYC!!!

I had "color shock" when I drove by
the ultimate "Palm Springs Accessoration"
& of course I had to stop!!!

How much color can one hotel absorb??? 
Apparently New York-based architects 
think an entire rainbow!!!

Inspired by colors of native desert wildflowers
& an enormous Pantone color card
this renovated Holiday Inn, 
a sublime "celebration of color", 
puts me into total "accessorator heaven"!!!

Hey guys,
What about that tacky Holiday Inn on Tenth Avenue,
it's screaming for a make-over!!!

But, I do see a potential problem ....
other than black, 
what colors are indigenous to NYC!!!

In Milan ..... What An Unusual Way to Stack Books!!!!

 BOOK COUCH 2 jpeg.jpg
My totally tasty "accessorator pal" WR 
was in Milan for Fashion Week ......
he wandered into the fabulous Rizzoli bookstore
& look what he found .....
the ultimate "library accessoration"!!!!

Even I never thought of a "book couch,"
but I wish I had 'cuz.....
it's divine!!!
