PRETTY MUCH PERFECT- Part 2

i’ve been so wrapped up in the gentlemen’s Wimbledon final this morning my post has been delayed- sorry! however, i was able to manage getting it done in between breaks!

so here goes! part 2 of one of my favorite books- vogue living- houses, garden, people. last week, part 1 post, i focused on the more casual homes i love in the book. country residences, mostly english, french and east coast homes. this week is the best of the urban residences- mostly new york city apartments. elegant, refined, sophisticated- a little fancy! and why not, i like fancy!  pay special attention to all the beautiful staircases! amazing!

oscar and annette’s, eva and michael’s, delphine and reeds- all glamorous, stylish, so very chic! however, my favorite has to be giancarlo giammetti’s paris bachelor pad. perfectly sexy, cool and sophisticated! pretty much perfect- just like him!

whether casual or fancy, in the country or in the city, European or American- one thing is certain, if you are in vogue, it’s the best- pretty much perfect! there really is nothing like vogue living! enjoy!

  1. this post is just wonderrful. mark, i haven’t been subscribing that long and i’m wondering if you’ve ever covered lee mindel, who as well as being an outrageously talented new york architect and designer along with his equally talented partner peter shelton, cuts a very glamorous and attractive figure. i met lee in nyc in the late seventies when he had been of late working for the men’s clothing designer burt pulitzer. it was a perk of the job i guess that he had the biggest pile of oxford cloth shirts that i had ever seen outside of a retail store. every color and stripe! but tragedy struck when he sent a good many of these jewels to the laundry and they came back with the wrong person’s name printed inside the collars. needless to say the young perfectionist was not pleased. any way i soon left ny and have had the great pleasure of following his marvelous career from the wilds of st louis ever since.
