I went to a book signing last evening for Bunny Williams’ and Mark D. Sikes’ new books. And I’m looking forward to an upcoming lecture by Katie Ridder and Peter Pennoyer on their new book. A fabric nut, I’ve just ordered A.S. Byatt’s book, too. I have a mighty stack to keep me busy.
Beautiful, A House in the Country, Peacock & Vine, A House by the Sea.

My friend and kic profile Mark D. Sikes has a gorgeous new book, ‘Beautiful’, out today. It’s no surprise that the chapter “bringing the outside in” is my favorite. Congratulations, Mark!

Over the years, I’ve become increasingly interested in tableware and am toying with starting a new business based on what I like. A botanical prints nut, it’s no surprise that this Rebekah Miles platter in September Vogue caught my eye.
As I’m packing, yet again, I was reminded of this story on Vanessa Traina’s essentials from the September issue of Architectural Digest, which is now helmed by my old friend Amy Astley. I may not be grabbing a red lipstick for the beach, but I did tuck my favorite pillow, cased in D. Porthault, into my bag.
Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele collaborated with porcelain maker Richard Ginori on Perroquets, a 12-piece collection of exotic bird embellished plates. I hope they’re not just decorative, they’d be perfect for a summer luncheon.

We are having Easter dinner with my in-laws in Bel Air. I wish I’d bought a scalloped-edge tray from Rita Konig, it’s the perfect hostess gift.
I may wear a neutral palette, but my home is filled with color and when it comes to wallpaper, I’m a complete fanatic. I really love a big, bold print in a small space. If Domino is an accurate barometer, then I’m not alone. All of these images are from the Spring 2016 issue.
