The Duchess Reads . . .
The Duchess very perkily awaits this fall's promising arrival of a cornucopia of design and decorating tomes. First up and not to be missed: Bunny Williams's Scrapbook for Living (pre-order at Abrams books).
Also on the list: "At Home with Town & Country" (the magazine, that is).
Cannot wait for "At Home: A Style for Today with Things from the Past" by Suzanne Rheinstein (of our very own Hollyhock), with photos by the marvelously talented Pieter Estersohn and foreword by Margaret Russell (despite all the magazine shake-ups lately, still Editor-in-Chief of Elle Decor!).
And let us not forget "Timeless Elegance: The Houses of David Easton" with a foreword by His Holiness Albert Hadley (the very definition of timeless!).
And one would think, with the ingenuity, cleverness and comfort embodied by the work of the terrific Peter Dunham (featured prom. in this month's "Angeleno" magazine is Peter's backyard playground for grown-ups), that he should be signing a book deal sometime very, very soon, no?
