“Country living” in New York City

Hey there….I’m back from Florida, where it was sunny and warm and beautiful. I need some time to organize photos, so will share something else with you today.

Every now and then I’ll see something in a magazine that really grabs me. This time it was Country Living. I like the color blue, but I don’t use it in my home. I might change my mind for this Christmas decor in an 1890’s New York City brownstone. Not sure how a brownstone in New York qualifies as country living, but what the heck. Enjoy….

 The brownstone belongs to Vicki Gordon, the executive story editor at 60 Minutes, and her husband, Michael Rubin. 

I’m not the best at decorating for Christmas, but I think even I could pull this off:

See you tomorrow!

    Wow. How decadent! I love the blue backdrop in the book cases.

    Glad you had fun in sunny Florida. We’re headed there in about six weeks–I hope it’s still balmy and warm in January!

    Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving…

    It is country living – it’s right next to Central Park! 😉

    Fantastic. At least they didn’t call it shabby chic as this is definitely only chic. I like the colors. Looking at photos like this doesn’t do my apartment any good. I swear I just saw it shrink.

  4. Welcome back! I’m actually headed to FL in a few days. Can’t wait to see your photos!

    I LOVE the blue, so beautiful. The thing about me is, not matter what I see in a magazine I can never recreate it lol I am decoration challenged.
