An End of the Week Pick-me-up
Time got away from me this week, so rather than leave you with a blog post full of illuminating text, I'm going to leave you with a blog post full of illuminating images. The photos seen here, which appeared in the September 1984 issue of Architectural Digest, capture a Manhattan apartment that was decorated by Mario Buatta. Like me, you might at first be taken with the apartment's overall warmth and coziness, which feels like cashmere on the eyes. But please don't overlook the details. Filled with porcelain, wicker cachepots, Chinese garden stools, wall brackets, brass occasional tables, and needlepoint pillows, this apartment is a case study in good old-fashioned, classic decorating, which really isn't old-fashioned at all.
