New York New York











It has been a fun week and a very busy week.  On Wednesday night we went to the Matchbook magazine launch here in Soho which was hosted by Rita Konig, John Derian and Lela Rose.  It was so great catching up with Katie, Jane, Fallon, Ashlina, Alaina and Michelle Adams

On Thursday night we caught up with Patricia van Essche at Balthazar also in Soho and tonight we had drinks with Heather from Habitually Chic here at The Crosby Hotel.  We also ran into Kathryn Ireland in the lobby this afternoon.  It was so lovely to see her again and I told her how much I loved the house she decorated which was featured in the latest World of Interiors magazine.  It is divine.  I actually spent the entire flight over here pouring over the article...truth be told!

Today we visited Elizabeth Bauer at her beautiful store and met her cute dog and chatted with her about decorating and she told us she is opening up a store in the Hamptons over the Summer with her mum which sounds very exciting.  Her store is so beautiful and full to the brim with things I loved.  All of the photos above were taken at her store today.  I have felt such a connection with her work ever since Lonny did a story on her a while ago.

In amongst all of that we have scoured and fossicked and found some amazing things for Black & Spiro.  I can't wait for everything to be delivered in the coming months.  It really has been such an inspiring and invigorating trip.  Now I can't wait to get home to see my boys who are apparently missing me immensely...not to mention how much I am missing them!!

Hello, I can't wait to see the clobber you've sourced! Exciting.

Meanwhile it is so so boiling hot here. Am hauling my heavily pregnant self round the house in a bikini. I am not kidding. Hope no one comes to the door...

Anna,
Lovely to meet you and Kelly. I feel the connections made via our blogs, do bring us closer together as each of us design, create and inspire an artful life all the while raising our families.
Safe journey home to your boys and so delighted that you were able to see the snow in New York. You must come back in the Summer....with your "Mum."

Oh Anna - I wish I's known you were at the matchbook party - I would have loved to have met you - it's so hard when you don't know what anyone looks like! And I saw Patricia yesterday and she mentioned what a lovely time she had with you. Sounds like your trip has been a wonderful whirlwind!

Her shop looks fun! Love the toile wallcovering- pink and orange is one of my favorite color combos. Her dog is so cute...I had a little Yorkie once named Alex (Alexander the Great). I hope to take a trip to NY soon. I'll make a point to stop by there.

Anna,

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time! Now, what can I say about the "company"? You have really special friends! ;-)

I also two children and I would miss them so much if I had to go somewhere w/out them. So, I totally understand you "need" to go back home.

Have a safe trip!
