Another Palm Springs Shop I Like, Stewart Galleries

Stewart Galleries
Another favorite source of mine, in the California desert, is Stewart Galleries.  
I'm looking forward to visiting there next month, and the last time we were out west, I picked up some very handsome selenite candle holders.  Kelly Wearstler is also a client of the shop, and it's a veritable treasure trove of fine art, decorative objects and handsome furnishings.  
Cheers! DF *****

Palm Springs Holiday!

A chic Palm Desert antiquaire

Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage!  Billy and I are headed out west next month- and I'm really looking forward to a much needed rest and escape from busy Naples- which is having a fantastic building boom and real estate market revival!  Just yesterday, I was in three open houses worth over thirty million dollars- and I am surrounded by a frenzy of new construction in The Moorings, one of the older, waterfront sections of town.  We'll touch down in Las Vegas, then drive through the desert to sunny So-Cal...always one of my favorite destinations.  Cheers!  DF *****

Orange Is For October

I've always loved bright orange, as well as kelly green- remember those bright orange little BMW cars? The 2002 model- I owned one back in the 1970's (Dad bought it for me) - but mine was a ruby red colour.  I loved that car!  October is always my favorite month, and I look forward to sharing more design inspirations with you as the month progresses.  Enjoy!  Cheers!  DF *****
