Time for another micro makeover!
I found these iron chairs at the Long Beach flea market years and years ago. I can’t remember exactly, but let’s say they were $100 for the pair. They were purple and pretty beaten up, but had great lines.
With a little love and inspiration from my favorite Casamidy, I was able to get these chair living room ready!
Take a look at the transformation (below).

Many of you may remember my old patio from my tiny cottage in Hollywood Hills — and now I’m taking elements of that space and incorporating it into my new oasis!
Welcome to my personal sweet spot… the upstairs patio of my home that is nestled in the hills and surrounded by beautiful palm tree views. An instant calm!
I know the next sentence I write is going to seem weird…but…I have recently become obsessed with the1965 classic The Sound of Music starring Julie Andrews. I was flying back from New York a few weeks ago and we were stuck on the tarmac at JFK for about two hours so I decided to rewatch The Sound of Music.

Still here in the Dominican Republic this Thursday morning. It is soooo lovely at Playa Grande Beach Club – a boutique vacation resort dreamed up and designed by New York money manager Boykin Curry (whom I have known for years and years – he is besties with my bestie AM so we are competing besties if that makes sense!!) and designer Celerie Kemble and the Kemble Interiors team (whom I have also known for years and who did a great job on this hotel). Every morning, I wake up and discover another cute vignette….yesterday and today…I’ve been soooo focused on the wicker chairs here. Here’s a little shopping guide on the best wicker chairs for summer lounging!
