Susanna Salk at Hollywood at Home
In the words of the Marchioness, one cannot stop the march of time. Quite true. It is thus that the Duchess finds herself facing another 30th birthday, this time (she hopes!) to be much, much better than the first. A celebratory weekend chockablock with fetes and fancies kicks off tomorrow evening with a huge to-do at Hollywood at Home.
That the Hollywood crowd's party isn't in honor of the Duchess . . . well, perhaps that can be forgiven, or at least temporarily overlooked. Especially since we'll honor the terrific Susanna Salk (formerly of Elle Decor and House Beautiful magazines, currently of 1stdibs.com and the "Today" show) and her newest tome, "Room for Children: Stylish Spaces for Sleep and Play" (Rizzoli 2010).
Many of you already know Ms. Salk from her widely distributed books "Privileged Life: Celebrating WASP Style" (as if we needed any help!) and "Weekend Retreats", which are beautifully curated and edited. The Duchess cannot wait to get her hands on "Room for Children" -- she needs considerably more herself (room, that is, not children), and is keen on Ms. Salk's inspirations. All those breeders in the Duchess's circle surely do too.
Merci tres, tres beaucoups to BelleMaison23.blogspot.com for the photographs.
See you tomorrow, loves.
