Like A Magpie

When I spy with my little eye something gilded, I’m like a magpie and want to make it mine. This gilded grapevine, in the dining room of 1rstdibs founder Michael Bruno’s Tuxedo Park home featured in the WSJ. magazine, is divine. The Eero Saarinen chairs are pretty good too, as are the animal dioramas.

  • What I’m coveting is that beautiful floor. Gorgeous.

  • Are the dioramas professionally done? An artist? A natural history project? They are so cool! Chicago’s Art Institute has a huge (permanent) collection of historical interior decoration dioramas, beautiful little furnished homes and gardens.

  • I can’t stop looking at that room! I agree about the floors, and the chairs, and the grapevine that looks like it unfurled on a Cocteau set, but also the window and the mouldings………love.

  • A fine example of classical interior design. So fresh, so . . . classical! It’s not always necessary to do something entirely new. Massive accumulation of expensive stuff doesn’t add up to a beautiful home. This is such a well-edited home–a very stylish result.
