Carolyn Westbrook LIve from NYC

This is what welcomed us when we stepped inside the ABC Carpet and Home Store in New York. The chandeliers were breathtaking, all clustered together everywhere. WE had just come from a major department store and I told Victoria that they needed to come over to ABC to see how it was done. STUNNING.

I recognized my friend Cody Foster's product, as I walked in. He designs the coolest stuff. Anyway, you can see for yourself, how great it is. It would be fantastic to be able to see NYC at Christmas time. I have always dreamed of that. I can definitely see why so much design takes place here...the air is charged with inspiration and creativity. Just walking down the street you can gain inspiration!
LOved this all white vignette. You know me and white, we are always in a romance.

Here you can see more gorgeous chandeliers.
They were everywhere. I will continue to post more pics, so keep looking.

I have to go now as we are hosting our annual Weenie Roast and Haunted Hayride tonight! I have to go scare up some haunts around the plantation and make this place a spook house. We have a hay wagon pulled by horses stopping in to take all of the teens through a scary spook filled ride and I havent even started. Wish me luck and I'll keep an eye out for ya!(tee hee)

Love all those beautiful chandeliers and statues of the virgin mary look fabulous, no wonder we cannot find many here in France, they are all in the US :-)



Hi Carolyn, stopped by to let you know I just received your/my new book The French Inspired Home & am loving it soooo much. It is beautiful. At a time when everything is so naked & plain it is good to get back into what I love. Your warmth & impeccable taste is inspiring me to get my new home together. I think I will need to order more for Christmas giving. I see you are loving NYC & my old neighborhood.. spend a lot of time at ABC.. I do miss all the energy of it all. Thank You again for sharing your beautiful talents in your new book.
Wishing you & your family & very Merry Christmas. xoxo Laura
