In My Reader…The Style Saloniste

In my reader this week is The Style Saloniste by well known interior design and architecture author Diane Dorrans Saeks.  As you’ve probably figured out by now, I read a wide range of things.  This week is all about passion.  Passion for ideas.  Passion for design.  Passion for a life well lived on many levels.  My choice this week may seem from a landscape and garden designer–but it’s really not.    Saeks is a well respected author of more than 20 eclectic design books  as well a contributing editor to several magazines, her blog is  a beautiful, sumptuous feast of images and high style journalism.  There are long and in-depth pieces on personalities and places that influence lifestyle and design.  It is a as good a read as the Sunday newspaper…and demands the same amount of time!

Here’s a look at The Style Saloniste.   Click each image to link back to the original post.

If I needed to escape for a bit, I’d go here…

If I was in San Francisco, I’d shop here…

If I went to India (and who doesn’t want to go) I’d stay here…even for a night.

    I love it when you open up your reader. Who wouldn’t want to be Avedon’s assistant when he was photographing Suzy Parker in Paris, just for a day?

    Amen to that. I can’t think of a more exciting day!–s
