a royal estate

I’m infatuated by the Parisian home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Situated in the Bois de Boulogne (a park in the 16th arrondissement of Paris), the Windsor Villa was quite remarkable. The couple was said to have moved into the estate after Maison Jansen, the famous Paris-based design firm, redecorated the home under the supervision of the Duchess. I was thrilled when I found photos from a 1939 profile in Life Magazine! My only complaint is that I could not find an image of the legendary pipe organ in their entryway. Wallis thought it an eyesore, so she had a library painted over it in trompe-l'œil. How brilliant was she?

hamish bowles: the home front

I know I posted about Hamish Bowles last week, but I just can’t keep this editorial to myself! Titled “The Home Front,” it appeared in the November 1992 issue of Vogue - Hamish was it’s fashion editor. Previously, I had not seen a fashion spread edited by this man! From the velvet embroidered slippers to Osa Johnson’s I Married Adventure, the editorial undeniably has his touch. And I love it. Though he does a phenomenal job as Vogue’s European editor-at-large, I selfishly wish he were still on the fashion side of things. Don’t you?!

pan am!

After the wild success of AMC’s “Mad Men,” a slew of television shows set in the early ‘60s will be premiering this fall. I’m most excited for ABC’s “Pam Am,” launching on September 25. The show promises a great wardrobe (if nothing else!). For a girl who l-o-v-e-s retro clothing, I couldn’t be more excited. What are your thoughts on “Pan Am” and the early ‘60s TV trend? Although it’s a fad, I hope it’s long-lasting... I just adore this era :)

the vanity project

One of the features I miss most from “House & Garden” is the magazine’s “Vanity” market piece. Though a “Vanity” page didn’t appear in every issue, when it did it was beyond! A scanned in a few of my favorite vanities from my magazine archives. They’re all wonderful, but I just die for the first vanity - the scene was inspired by decorating doyenne Dorothy Draper. Which do you prefer?
