New York is my favorite Real Housewives franchise. Ramona’s incredible facial expressions. Sonja’s cougar desperation. Heather’s get-hood-real-quick realness. I love it all. But I love Carole Radziwill the most. Especially her apartment. I have been longtime obsessed with Carole’s Scalamadre le Tigre upholstered sofa. The sofa was gifted to Radzi from her mother-in-law Lee Radziwill (Jackie O’s sister). Reportedly she has received offers for the sofa that would “Fund a summer home in France”.
So, I got slightly uncomfortable watching let night’s episode when Carole appointed NYC designer Wayman Robertson to give her apartment a “face lift.” Would any seemingly straight man ever appreciate such a legendary piece of animal print lusciousness?
Well, he does. And his re-design is banging.
Let’s discuss this art. A nude photograph of Marilyn Monroe with a large red cross over her face. Everybody knows that Miss Monroe was the legendary mistress of Carole’s late husband’s uncle, JFK. Is this a read? I think so. Ms. Radzi is no dummy. She knows what she’s doin.
God I live for provocative artwork.
In last nights episode Carole was playing with the idea of gold leafing her ceiling. Looks like she ended up silver leafing it. And it looks pretty darn fab. Also appears that instead of a build-in banquette under the floating staircase she opted for a curved velvet sectional. Purrrrrrrr.
I am DYING to use some Phillip Jeffries Rivets wallpaper just like the application in the hallway. Also, I’m happy to see that the kitchen was left a kitchen. A kitchen with black and white striped flooring nonetheless.
If your space could use a face lift, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org. I can hook. You. Up.
