Mrs. B at AD with Michael Smith


Cannot tell you what a treat it was to visit with Michael Smith about his New York renovation and his new role at Brunschwig & Fils.  You can find the piece at archdigest.com here.

And what a treat to stop by and find a post after your
long absence. Your interview was great. Michael Smith
seems to have a great appreciation for the traditional
while he is keenly a man of the times.

Hi Patricia, I just read the AD article--it is beautifully written: draws me in. I appreciate the focus on the historicity of B&F and the linking of current design to the masters of the past. Thanks. Mary (again)

Missed you, Mrs. Blandings!

He is such a talent! And what I find most surprising, is that he doesn't appear to be the type of person who would actually live in his somwewhat formal, elegant apartment. He always exudes a kind of relaxed, L.A. cool desheveled vibe. But boy is he talented!

Enjoyed your Spaces article on the Kansas City home of Francois Bardonnet. I flipped through the magazine last night at Wal-mart and stopped dead in my tracks when I saw that wheat sheaf table in his living room. I had had my eye on that table at Parrin and Co for a long time and the day I went in to buy it she told me that it had just sold to an antique dealer from Boston who was furnishing a place in Kansas City! It looks fantastic among all of his antiques!

Beautiful banner at your site as well, I am reminded of some wall paintings by the Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, such as this one http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWNY4. You browse more murals of his at wahooart.com.
