The Duchess Adores . . .

Hollywood at Home!

God, the Duchess loves the boys over at Hollywood at Home. Today was fantastic, started out with a lovely visit with her friend Jason over at H@H. Had to return some fabric samples but ended up getting a parking ticket over all the fun we were having. It was worth it!

Marisa Marcantonio over at Stylebeat did a fantastic feature on the new Hollywood at Home space on La Cienega, recently relocated from Almont Yard. Peter Dunham's textile collection (in addition to those of Lisa Fine, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Jed Johnson, etc.) is divinely displayed in this new space. Divine. Peter, the peripatetic collector/designer/savant, has curated a terrific collection of pieces for his shop, and even more may be found on 1stdibs.com. For example, the Duchess found a screen on 1stdibs about which she inquired, only to find (today of all days) that Peter will be using it in an installation at the Hollyhock window for the Legends of La Cienega Celebrate Hollywood weekend of May 6 through May 8. Ms. Suzanne, stealing the Duchess's thunder . . . and appropriately so, the Duchess must concede.

Peter's flagship textile, if you will, is his colorful, graphic and iconic "Fig Leaf" (shown above in Original on White), but he has an eclectic vision that is displayed by the breadth and depth of his creations. The Duchess was so very pleased to see Hollywood at Home in Elle Decor; a worthy shout-out for sure.

Personally, the Duchess loves this Kashmir Paisley in the Blue/Pink colorway, just perfect for coordinating with her new upholstery. She also adores the Starburst pattern (East colorway, but many more available) below.

Come out to Hollywood at Home for the book signing of Annie Kelly's new Rooms to Inspire, co-hosted with Martyn Lawrence-Bullard himself, on April 22. Mr. Lawrence-Bullard is a very busy man these days: his interior design for the home of Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery was featured in this month's Elle Decor (and made the cover, no less!) and he also designed the entrance tent for the Los Angeles Antiques Show (preview party next Wednesday) -- see you all there!
