As the weather starts to cool down in New York and the moon is appearing earlier every week, I cannot help but get excited for my favorite season! Thick wrap sweaters, rich autumn colors, outdoor flea markets and fresh organic produce are enough to make a girl giddy, but this fall I'm adding a few more things to my list!
1. The highly anticipated domino The Book of Decorating hits bookstores this October and I literally don't think I've ever been more excited for any book release in my entire life! domino Editor in Chief Deborah Needleman commented, “We’re creating The Domino Book of Decorating for a new generation of homeowners and renters, and hope to make it the new décor bible--a source of guidance, inspiration, and excitement.” A source of obsession is more like it ;)
2. On October 10th the New Museum will open its doors to the "Live Forever: Elizabeth Peyton" exhibit, displaying more than 100 works made over the past fifteen years! Peyton is one of my absolute favorite artists, so I'm basically counting down the days on a paper chain in anticipation...
3. Also occurring on October 10th is the grand opening of New York's first Williams Sonoma Home store at the Shops at Columbus Circle! You may wonder why I find this exciting, but trust me, the minute you see one of these stores in person you will understand. I visited the Palo Alto location last year and was so wowed that I found myself whispering instead of speaking at a normal volume! It looked very similar to the stunning JK Capri with seagrass wallpaper, layers of framed photography, potted orchids, and chic white furniture.
4. Last but not least, I'm totally pumped for the release of Influence, Mary-Kate and Ashley's newest book! Ashley says the book will feature “the most interesting, challenging, creative people we know — the ones who helped pave the way for us and our generation.” For those of you who are brave enough to handle swarms of crazy teens and long lines, the Olsen's will be signing books at Barnes and Noble in Union Square on October 28th at 12:30pm! Pretty cool if you ask me ;)
