We recently hosted James Swan’s book signing of “101 Things I Hate About Your House”. What a fun night and such a charming guy! In preparation I must confess, there was much to be done before his arrival as I stood, book in hand, reviewing his powder room tips.

These are things I KNOW from my own mother’s indoctrination straight from Amy Vanderbilt herself! And although this is my workroom, the many designers that frequently powder their noses should expect nothing but the highest quality of good taste, cleanliness and design while attending to their personal needs! (OH MY! I needed to get moving!) Who knew there was really a correct way to put the toilet paper on the roll!

When I confided to James that we had recently hung the chandelier and spruced up our bathrooms for his arrival he acknowledged that they looked great! WHEW! Now we can get back to work!
