Went to a fab book signing party the other night…it was for Style and Substance: The Best of Elle Decor…a book by Margaret Russell and all of the editors at Elle Decor.
The party was quite posh and took place at William Sonoma Home in West Hollywood. The room was filled with interior designers, design mavens (including famous fashion designer Monique Lhuillier) and me and my sister DS (design interlopers of sorts…hee hee..). I was late. Poor DS, who is a lawyer, was left to navigate the design crowd by herself for about 20 minutes. When I arrived, I found her eating a snack, focused on some furniture and seemingly totally enjoying herself. Phew.
So many people to chat with (albeit brief in the social whirlwind)…let’s see…famed interior designer Windsor Smith who is quite lovely(dove across the room to meet her because we had emailed a few time about posts…I may have even interrupted a conversation she was having…oops), bloggers/t.v. personalities Eddie Ross and Jaithan Kochur of Eddie Ross (both so cute) … and most importantly design aficionado and head of Elle Decor Margaret Russell herself (she just oooozes undeniable style and looked so extremely chic…of course DS’s only comment to her was “I love your dress”…)
It was so much fun. After sis DS and I did our meet and greet due diligence we exited the scene…very happy to have attended, to have met, to have had a bit of champagne and have mingled.
The book looks fabulous by the way…perfect for a coffee table and filled with ideas for every space in the house. 240 pages pulled from the archives of Elle Decor. Love it!!! These pictures are pages from the book.
Hope you enjoy!
