When I tell people that I’m an interior designer the first thing they usually say is, “Oh how fun! You must really love your job. It’s so glamorous.” I often reply that the beginning and the end of a project are what I love and everything in the middle is like solving the Rubix Cube puzzle! One of the greatest things about being a successful designer is being invited to the parties. This is the time to dress up and behavior like a socialite. Fortunately the spirit of these parties in the last few months has been one of generosity. As we drink the finest champagne and preview world class art, accessories and furniture we guests are expected to give to others. Enjoy the photos and remember being green is all about sustainable products as well as behavior and generosity of spirit.

Jean De Merry, Elle Decor and Veuve Clicquot hosted a wonderful party with the very best hors d’ oevres by Michelle & Co. His La Cienega store has some of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen including a series of acid etched glass panels from a 19th Castle in Belgium adoring the entry. Good design that lasts is inherently green and using something a few hundred years old in your interior is about as green as it gets.
