Earlier in the month, I wrote about my excitement for my new book, The Perfect Bath. While the process of designing and executing a great bath can be demanding, dare I say that the book itself—my experience and insight coupled with advice from top experts and stunning images—is quite an enjoyable read.

The second week of May has evolved into “Design Week” in New York. In addition to the opening of the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and Collective Design, there is the major trade show International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF). Originally it was a platform for contemporary furniture, rugs, lighting, fabrics, wallpaper and objects. Today, it has migrated to a complete range for luxury interiors now including surfaces, bath, kitchen, hardware and an even inspiring section devoted to student work.

My plan was to have a vacation in Maine this summer, but like many of our summer plans, the season passed all too quickly to make the trip. So I did the next best thing and went to Shelter Island; it feels a bit like Maine but is closer to home. In just three days, we were able to hit many of the East End’s design destinations.

I simply love books; new and old, design, decoration, architecture, art, craft, fashion, landscape and much more. I use them for reference, inspiration and pleasure. There is something special about each book — from the texture and design of the book jacket to the choice of material for the end papers, from the selection of font to the cadence of photographs, and of course the content. For me, each treasured favorite is highly personal.
