|Maureen Footer, via New York Social Diary|
While I had purchased the Maureen Footer book on decorator George Stacey, I then loaned it to a friend, and haven't seen it since! I had forgotten about this wonderful piece done on her on the NYSD...Maureen has lamps by Chris Spitzmiller in her charming, euro influenced New York flat, which happens to be a studio! Maureen is a beautiful and elegant woman, and I hope to get a chance to meet her one day.
Hailing from San Francisco, Ms. Footer represents a certain, smart, type of girl, my kind of girl, with a wonderfully honed eye, based in the classics. Like I am forever saying, Classics Are Forever. Not unlike Alicia Silverstone in Clueless! :) (see the Vanity Fair write-up on Clueless in the latest issue). But, I digress.
Wasn't Maureen clever to use that fabulous tapestry as a focal point? She does not own a television. If you read my blog posts, you may know that I too, wouldn't own one, if they hadn't been given to me over the years. I still take a perverse kind of pleasure in watching my world's smallest flat screen. I think the screen itself is no more than 10 x 17 ! Inches. !
Style is creating a Proustian, elegant ambiance in a Manhattan studio apartment. See more of it on NYSD HOUSE click on Maureen Footer under Decorator Series. Enjoy! DF *****
