House & Home Roundup: 4.6.06
We’ve been dreading reading H&H online this week, and while we like the wider page, we still are having a hard time grokking the layout and finding the beginning and ending of stories. A little line in between them would be nice.
This week is not to be missed, however, as PGreen heads uptown and goes long, laying out a whole new breed of decorator that you may just love to hate.
- Tradition’s New Cheerleaders: Far from modern, Emma Jane Pilkington, Laura Yaggy, Eugenie Niven and Celerie Kemble are doing some interesting things – call it “edgy traditional.” We love the bold use of color, but their social circle might scare you off (it scares us off!). Here’s a clip: “If you are buying a manor…wouldn’t you want help from someone who has grown up up in one?”
- View Slideshow: Designing Women
- Hello to All That – A 70’s Star Reborn: All things Maria Pergay. With a new show at the Demisch Danant and Lehmann Maupin galleries through April 29 and a new book, she’s back at 75.
- Lisa Fontanarosa offers wild, high end, avant-garde furnishings not available in the US.
- Personal Shopper zones in on Easter and Passover decor and we might all do better to pass it all over. These holidays do not good decor make.
- Rounding Up Nature to Preserve Under Glass: Bill Hamilton visits with Stephen Christopher Quinn, the man “responsible for the creation and conservation of the [Museum of Natural History’s] wildlife habitat dioramas.”
- In the Plant Game, Some Bets Are In: Ken Druse fills us in on Plant Delights Nursery in Raleigh, NC, which is one of the “country’s premier ’boutique’ nurseries,” and helps kick off the season.
