Domestic Art


One publication that I greatly miss living in the UK is PaperCity—the style and social magazine for Dallas and Houston. The fashion is always fantastic, the photos are sublime and the homes are simply stunning. Plainly put PaperCity is in a league of its own. And so it comes as no surprise that they have teamed with the incomparable Assouline to produce a jaw dropping new book Domestic Art. I am thrilled to be among the first to have a glimpse of the photos and to share a few of them with all of you.

The glamorous Editor-in-Chief Holly Moore, along with the design-obsessed editors Rob Brinkley and Laurann Claridge, have curated 37 fabulous projects, from follies to disciplined mansions, to the oh-so-fashionable home of Ken Downing and Sam Saladino. Other notable interiors include Dominque and John de Menil's international-style house, with its interior by the great couturier Charles James, and Eric Pokesh's glorious color-filled Dallas abode.

Mark your calendars for October 1, you will want this book in your collection! Many thanks to the lovely Laurann Claridge for thinking of me and providing me with an early preview. I can't wait to own this one.

I was born in Ft Worth and my mom has tons of back issues of that magazine that she hoards! She is going to be bedside herself when she sees this book. Thanks Ronda, I would have never known about this otherwise! What a great birthday gift for her.
