say what you want about politics. like who you want, dislike who you want. think america is great or think that it isn’t, but if you don’t think michelle obama, our first lady, doesn’t look beautiful this week in brandon maxwell you need to get your head examined or your eyes checked.
happy weekend everyone- it’s beautiful in L.A. today!
yesterday i featured amanda and christopher brooks home in the cotwolds that’s in the newest architectural digest/ see the country life post here. the inside of the house is charming and magical, but look at these gardens also featured in the story. i’m torn about whether i’d be inside all the time or outside- how about you?
all of it is divine! maybe i’m ready for a move to the country.
fashion girl amanda cutter brooks gave up the city life for the country. what was supposed to be a year long escape from the hectic pace of nyc has turned into a four year stay and it doesn’t look like she is leaving anytime soon.
amanda was most recently the creative director of barney’s. her husband fifteen years her senior, artist christopher brooks, was from the cotwolds in england. christopher lived in nyc as well but held on to his family home that was treated as a summer retreat. amanda had had it with nyc and wanted to focus on her family. she suggested the family move to the country, everyone said yes, and everyone is very happy.
the new architectural digest is fabulous. it’s the yearly fashion issue and it’s the new editor-in-chief amy astley’s first issue. one fun fact i discovered from the story is that christopher’s first wife, miranda brooks, the genius landscape designer, did the gardens of the country house. i didn’t realize that miranda had been married to christopher…
this house is really special and rare. i mean amanda lives there, miranda did the gardens, carolina helped make it beautiful, oberto captured it perfectly and amy has shared it with the world. all i can say is “thank you” to all of you and “congrats” amy on your new role.
