DRANSFIELD and ROSS………Designers Extraordinaire

 

Their designs are………..

mystrieux, EXTRAORDINAIRE, merveilleus.

John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross have given up their NYC apt…..and moved to the rolling hills of Somerset New Jersey.

The live is a 20 room house called CHERRYFIELDS.

Their favorite thing is to find a treasure at Flea Markets.

There are 7 guest rooms………so you can choose the one you want to sleep in.

This guest room is the favorite of single friends.

Their style in dining is one I like to use in my own apartment.

There are five sitting areas in the house.

Their casual arrangement of flowers is also one that I like to emulate.

The CHAIR………..like no other……….

This is their TV viewing room………oh so comfortable.

I don’t usually like to cover my books with art…..but I do like their choice.

The NAPKINS RINGS are also their design…..and sadly…….they are the only thing I own from their collections.

One of their favorite little sitting rooms……and perfect for a cup of tea.

My 25 Ideas for CHRISTMAS GIFTS

It was a fun day of shopping………….5th Avenue……….a flea market………a silver emporium………and a crafts show.  [I am exhauested].  But I did make 5 purchases…………gifts for family…….friends………and my stockbroker!

The TAXIDERMY DEER HEAD………..was NOT among my purchases.

However…………..this Courtly Check Moose Head at MacKenzie Childs did tempt me…………..at $15,000 [cough]………….but it was the $695 delivery charge that killed the purchase.

Another ART BUYING BINGE this week

 

I don’t have another inch of space on my walls………but I went ART SHOPPING anyway. No,  I did not  bid on the Leonardo Da Vince “Portrait of Christ”….I was a bit short  of cash……….$450 million to be exact!

I did score a Bonnard….a Charon……….some English Chromolithographs……an antique map and a few other prints.
