Yes, it is I, The Queen Of Muchness, so crowned by my good friend, Mary
Randolph Carter, otherwise known as The Girl Who Loved Too Many Things …..
A while back, Carter, best-selling writer of interior design books, style maker
and long-time Ralph Lauren VP came to my house with photographer, Carter
Berg (the other Carter!), to take photos for her new book …..
The greatest attention was paid to every detail, while, at the same
time, Carter, in her Amish beekeeper’s suit, saved it all from feeling
too much like work …..
In May, the book was launched:
Never Stop To Think…Do I Have A Place For This?” …..
And in June, we had a festive book signing at The Hudson Mercantile’s
202 Allen Street store …..
It really is a fabulous book, just chock full of the private houses of
inveterate collectors, those who buy only with their hearts. There
are no interior-designer spaces here, just places that are comfortable,
lived in and loved. And full of every kind of collection imaginable.
It’s available at Amazon, Rizzoli, book stores and at The Hudson
Mercantile, both the 318 Warren Street and the 202 Allen Street
stores. And we can have it signed and shipped right to your door!
Thank you, Mary Randolph Carter, for the fun and, most of all, for your
friendship. And, thank you, Carter Berg for making it all look so good!
