I was at someone's condo last night and saw these Luminara candles- not real, though they really look perfect. I think they are more realistic than the LED candles. And they work on a remote control! I remember seeing them at the Missouri Botanical Garden's Holiday light show last year.
Mike Brady Called......He wants his paneled den back!!!!
Seriously, You don't have to live with outdated paneling or endure demolition and remodel. All plasters were applied directly on paneling and laminate counter tops and even brick. Plus, they aredurable, pretty and unique.
A word about the LN Show House
If you made it to the Ladue News Show house this year-Huge Thanks! Two great causes Cardinal Glennon and Autism Speaks. If you are not familiar with a show house, it is where a bunch of designers/contractors/artists completely transform an outdated house into a show place over the course of about 2 weeks. Time and budget constraints definitely play into the creative process. It is truely an inspiration to see it all come together in controlled chaos. There are a lot of BIG HEART-ED people in the St. Louis Design community. I'd like to ThanksJeanne Lashmett for bringing me in on the project.

What is the process for working with Crazy Walls?
Let's talk about your next project. DeirDre will come check out the space. Ask tons of questions about what you like and don't like. What is staying in the room (if anything), what are you adding to the room? How do you use the space? Budget $? She also brings a huge portfolio of wall finishes from past jobs. Lots of colors and textures to get ideas from!
DeirDre puts together a customized plan and a bid for your project.
If you accept the bid, LARGE 2'x2' samples are made specifically for your project.
If you like them, we schedule the start date of your project, if they need tweaking, DeirDre tweaks the samples and then we schedule your project.
You work directly with DeirDre the entire process. She designs and installs your wall finishes.
It's that simple! What are you waiting for?? Call today! 314-265-7762
I love this idea of drilling holes in your fence and sticking marbles in the holes to catch the light. HERE are some other ideas on how to make your yard cool this summer. Some of them seem a little far-fetched.
There is nothing worse than seeing a "Home Depot" door on a stylish Mid-century home. You know what I am talking about the metal doors with an oval, leaded glass window in the middle. Check out these doors from Simpson Doors.
The other day I had the treat to see William Shearburn's new gallery located on the first level of the Dorchester at 665 S. Skinker. Philip Durham of Studio Durham designed the new space. It is gorgeous with views of Forest Park. See more on Studio Durham's site: HERE. Check out William Shearburn Gallery's site: HERE
Yesterday I felt a little likes Downton Abbey during the war years. I was ironing table cloths and napkins, polishing silver and cooking all day. Where was my staff? It is hard being upstairs and downstairs....though I do live in a ranch on a slab....so I guess this is the way it has to be! Oh well everything looked beautiful.
Christmas pants were in full swing.....as were mustaches.
My ex-wife sent over some yummy pasteries from Piccione Bakery on Delmar. They were so good. We received some of their other pasteries at the office this week from Town & Style Magazine and they were amazing!

Last night was Urbanaire to benefit PROMO. I was the honorary chair with the St Louis Post Dispatch's lovely Debra Bass. The event was sold out and has come to be one of the hottest tickets of the year. The event was held at the Contemporary Art Museum.
I still have some things to finish in my Living Room, though it is coming together. I have ordered an Asian-motif rug from Stark and an going to have two side chairs redone...oh and I almost forgot....my designer, David Deatherage of Century Design tracked down a wonderful Paul McCobb cocktail table in Pittsburgh that is making its way to St. Louis for me.
The pictures below show the evolution of this room.
This is an early picture of this room when William Bernoudy was a bachelor and his mother was living with him.
This is the picture from the Bernoudy book and was taken after Bill Bernoudy had passed away and his wife, Gertrude, commissioned the book to be written.
I remember One Memorial Drive well when it was KMOX's headquarter's. My ex-wife's father was Robert Hyland who ran KMOX in its heyday. The old KMOX space (they moved to the Park Pacific building) has been white-boxed and is ready for a new tenant. This includes the whole terrace...which is enormous and looks over The Arch grounds. There are 22,000 sq ft still available.
