What are you doing this weekend? Cause I have some exciting news! Remember when I mentioned cleaning up because “people were coming over”? Well, those people are YOU and various other New Yorkers and ladies who lunch via The Junior League House Tour this Saturday, May 5!
Um, yea… this is crazy!
What is the Junior League and what is their house tour? The Junior League is a charity, established in 1901 and made up entirely of female volunteers, that’s goal is to improve the lives of New York women and children around our city and in the greater New York area.
Every Spring and Fall, the Junior League selects a bunch of cool apartments and houses across the city for a tour. I’m so honored to be part of the tour, its kind of prestigious and my home will be in the company of some design legends. Past tours have featured both designers’ own residences as well as their clients, including: Geoffrey Bradfield, Paula Caravelli, Alexandra Champalimaud, Robert Couturier, Laura Day, William Diamond and Anthony Baratta, Jamie Drake, Steven Gambrel, Phillip Gorrivan, Christopher Hyland, Eric Lysdahl, Todd Merrill, Robert Passal, Campion Platt, Jennifer Post, Scott Salvator, Hunt Slonem, Sara Story, Stephanie Stokes, Alan Tanksley, Matthew White, Frank Webb, and Vicente Wolf.
What this means for you, is that you can see my apartment , along with a bunch of others, without feeling like a weirdo stalker creep! People that see the apartment in real life after seeing it on the blog say its like being on a movie set. Familiar because they’ve seen it so many times, but weird too!
