Last night was a big night in Atlanta- our resident design maven Julia-Carr Bayler hosted a wonderful party at her store Belvedere to celebrate the recent release of interior illustrator Jeremiah Goodman's book. Not only was it a thrill to see his magnificent paintings in person, but it was even more exciting to get to meet the legend himself. Mr. Goodman, who looked quite dashing in his bow-tie, was extremely gracious and charming. I know I'm gushing, but I can't help myself. I've admired his work for so long that it was a real honor to get to talk to him.
If you're in Atlanta you should try to stop by Belvedere today to view the exhibition of his paintings. Works include the rooms of Diana Vreeland, the Duchess of Windsor, Rose Cumming, and Cecil Beaton. Or, visit 1st dibs for an opportunity to purchase one of Mr. Goodman's paintings.
(For those who visit the shop in person also be sure to check out Justin Giunta's Subversive Jewelry line as well as his paintings, also available on 1st dibs. The baubles would be a perfect holiday gift- to receive, of course!).
