STYLE: Pauline and The Pink Door

 The Baroness Pauline de Rothschild

So, my very kind friend, Ted Glasgow, the super talented interior designer- sent this image to me recently.  It reminded me of how I've always been inspired in my imagination by this icon of style, Pauline de Rothschild . 

Ted works with The Pink Door in Greensboro, NC and is a decorator who is aware of past designers such as Otto Zenke, and later, The Zenkes.

Check out this amazing video of The Pink Door here !  I first discovered this chic emporium years ago while visiting my parents in Winston-Salem.

Our friend, the writer Mitch Owens, is working on a book about the Baroness, and just told me that the new very high style book on Thomas Britt that he's working on is now in the captions on images stage, so you know I just cannot wait for that one to come out!

I imagine that the Baroness would approve of Tom's new book.  I forgot to mention in my previous post, on Carleton Varney, that he'd made a point of reminding the HSN viewers of the importance of fantasy in our lives and in our homes, while selling very beautiful sheets and bedding.  I couldn't agree more!  "Mr. Color" promotes the use of bold palettes and has an international point of view.  He also has a new book out,  "Decorating On The Waterfront" Click here to view/order.  Enjoy!  DF *****

  1. Such a small world. I know Ted and Mitch through Facebook. Love Mitch's writing, and looking forward to his new book. So many people I know have books out or coming out that my coffee table has filled up, as are my library shelves. But that's a good thing.

    1. Cynthia,
      Yes! That's the only thing I like about social media.
      One can probably never have enough books- short of becoming a hoarder!

  2. I'm obsessed with The Pink Door! Need to see more of Ted's work!

    1. Ted is so talented!
      He sometimes posts images of his work on FB, not sure about Insta-
      He worked at The Zenkes also for many years-


Please do comment, love the rapport!
