A Tony Duquette Sunburst Chandelier Shines In Montauk

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne.  That beauty of a chandelier arrived in 2 boxes and, seemingly, hundreds of pieces. 

Take a look.  Count ‘em.  It took 4 electricians to assemble and install, plus me directing “sun ray” placement.  Don’t miss the white gloves, included so there would be no unsightly fingerprints  on the brass.   

I think the best view might be when you lie down on the bed. 

Now we just need to wait for the unlacquered brass to develop a little patina.

UPDATE: PEOPLE HAVE ASKED TO SEE MORE OF THE ROOM.  IT IS NOT DONE YET, BUT HERE IS MY MOOD BOARD.

Would You Pass On A Rita Konig Designed Apartment?

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne.   In the HGTV show, Selling New York,  a client from Bermuda, looking for a New York pied a terre and described in the show as a “high net worth businesswoman”, barely took a second glance.

The apartment is  a 1,151 square foot, 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath  corner penthouse in the Upper East Side Manhattan House. The episode aired on July 7.

Me, on the other hand, thought the place was lovely.  Open airy rooms, fresh palette.  What is not to like? 

Oh and did I happen to mention there is a large wraparound terrace too?  Pure gold in NYC. What do you think?

Cool, Summery Linen

by Lynn Byrne

By Lynn Byrne.  I think linen just screams summer, whether it is on the bed (linen sheets, le sigh), on the table (think napkins,placements and tablecloths), as curtains or as pillows.  It  gives off such a relaxed feel, that it forces you to unwind.  Purrrfect for summertime.

Check out this dreamy hanging bed, in the house architect Daniel Hale built for himself in St. Helena. (To see more of his house, click here).  I feel a nap coming on….

This bed in the same house is equally inviting.
