What we remember most about rooms we like is the 'atmosphere.'
~ Charlotte Moss, A Passion for Details
|I am on the hunt for the provenance of this flag at The Ivy. In the mean time, I can fill our home with roses.|
|In the background is the stairway my husband built. It is based on a stairwell we saw in the old film classic The Seven Year Itch. My parent's bedroom dresser is re-purposed to hold linen and dining accouterments.|
|The Ivy restaurant has swags festooning windows; we covered cornice boxes with tapestry scenes straight from American outdoor life.|
|The china cabinet is filled with memories of our travels.|
Today the story is my gratitude to live in a place where I can go out to pick mint and Betty Boop Roses. I can set a table with the same love and abundance as where movie stars dine out.
