Last week I attended a party for Hutton Wilkinson, his beautiful jewelry line, and his new book More Is More: Tony Duquette. More is more, and during the party I kept thinking "I want more!" Like this:
Sadly, that wasn't going to happen so I ended up buying this:
But don't think that the book was a consolation prize. I haven't yet finished the book, but so far I'm thoroughly enjoying it. More than one person has said that "More is More" is even better than the first Tony Duquette book. I'll let you know when I finish it. The photos are absolutely gorgeous. Want to take a look?
There is also a limited edition set of both books in a slipcover case finished in "Gemstone", the malachite fabric from the Tony Duquette collection for Jim Thompson.
That's also "Gemstone" on the table as well. The hostess' beautiful house featured other Jim Thompson/ Tony Duquette fabrics, including "Gemstone" in the beige colorway as well as:
"Golden Sunburst". In fact, one smart guest had a skirt made of this print in the silvery color. She said it doesn't wrinkle!
And now for the gratuitous vanity shot of Hutton and me. Naughty Hutton made sure we had our picture taken in the bedroom. I think he said something very funny, which explains the enormous grin on my face.
