Carolyne Roehm's new Fall 2006 entertaining and gift collections have just been added to her website. She has three new collections: Louis XVI, Tapestry, and Luxe. There are so many beautiful items that I'm adding to my Christmas wish list, most especially her new line of Chocolate Limoges china.
The rich chocolate color with gold is so elegant. I'm really crazy about the tureen. Or, if you would prefer a pop of color, you may be interested in the Brique Limoges line- the coffeepot and demitasse sets would like so pretty on a tray for after-dinner coffee.
If you're interested to see what Roehm's own home looks like, there is a new interview with her on newyorksocialdiary.com- this is the first in a series of interviews entitled "The Way They Live". There are numerous pictures of her very stately and elegant New York apartment. Also make sure to read the interviews with various New York decorators that were part of their New York Social Diary Decorator series. There is a recent interview with one of my favorite designers Miles Redd.
