Vicente Wolf - blogger

While I was on line looking for this - 


I discovered that Vicente Wolf has started a blog and it is quite delightful.  Like most good blogs he muses about what is going on in his home town, what's new on the design scene, and his general likes.  Also, charmingly, he is offering up a little advice when his readers pose specific questions.  

Click on over and say hello.  It's tough to put yourself out there; let him know you care.


Image, top, Elle Decor, September 2008.  You can see by the lower image from Mr. Wolf's website, that he does not need my help, but I'm quite smitten by his blogging.  The hardware, by the way, is available through Sherle Wagner, but you can not search his collection specifically on the site.

Which hardware are you choosing? I love Vincentes blog and his new candle holders for Baccarat.Thank you for sending us his way!

It's not really a blog, it's an elegantly packaged infomercial. And as such, disappointing. When Billy Baldwin or Mark Hampton wrote about decorating, they never once turned it into a solicitation for their services or products for sale.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Victoria - thanks so much, we'll see if you like it as there are dissenters in the mix already.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Patricia - I know!

Mrs. Blandings said...

mimilee - oh, yes, he's quite something.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Karena - not choosing, just the perpetual shopper. I thought the candlesticks were stunning as well.

By the time Hampton and Baldwin were publishing, they didn't need to drum up business with mass-market books.

They might have done it in part to indulge their egos--because they were in love with their own opinions, and with the image of themselves as major tastemakers--but by that point in their careers, I seriously doubt they published books in the hopes of rustling up clients.

Thank you for the heads up! Always enjoy yours as well.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Anon. - I had lost that thread, I apologize. No, I don't think they were doing it to attract clients, nor do I think Wolf is blogging to attract clients. I imagine he has a very healthy client base. I was referring more to book sales.

Saturday night my iphone was on silent for some UNKNOWN reason and Sunday I noticed about 10 calls from my g.f. - so I called her - what's wrong? Oh nothing, she said. Last night my husband and I were at an auction and one of the items was a trip to NYC with a dinner at V. Wolf's apartment, then a day of shopping with him at all his favorite haunts. We were going to buy it for you and me if you wanted it.

I could sue Iphone, I swear.

I hope I can catch you while you are still in NYC, we can meet up at the NY Junior League for lunch, where I am a member.

Good Morning,

For some strange reason I was unable to leave a comment on your latest post, Mrs. B! So, here I am on this post to make a comment about your Marriage one.....Wonderful insight into this precarious institution indeed! Very realistic and idealistic with a pinch of humor thrown in!! I loved it and plan to print it out .......it's a keeper!

P.S. Maybe you meant to keep the comments from the marriage post but I just had to comment anyway!!!

Ditto on the posting problem. First, your a wonderful writer. Secondly, we men, we're dogs, but have you ever met a dog you didn't like? Cheers, Homer.

Mrs. Blandings said...

Homer - thanks so much, and you're right, I can't seem to live without them. Dogs or men.
