New York is one of the meccas of the interior design world. I am lucky to visit often, enjoying both the obvious and obscure charms of the city, favorite foodie stops, and of course making sure I absorb the wealth of resources and inspiration it offers. Here’s a snapshot of my schedule from last week’s visit, it truly is the city that never sleeps!
9:30 A.M. Shopping for carpets with the entire Stark family (Steven, Chad, Ashley, and John Stark)! Such a treat!
11:30 A.M. Quick stop for great cinnamon rolls at Tipsy Parsons.
12:00 P.M. Interior design challenge of the day – carrying a canopy bed up 17 flights of stairs and then trying to change 3 light bulbs inside a glass bubble!
2:00 P.M. Late lunch at Cipriani Downtown
4:00 P.M. Stopping to enjoy the tulips on Park Avenue — the tell-tale sign that spring has hit the city.
7:00 P.M. Opening night on Broadway – Bette Midler in I’ll Eat You Last A Chat with Sue Mengers. I was in star-studded company – Liza Minnelli, Graydon Carter, Debbie Reynolds, and Jeffrey Katzenberg were seated nearby.
Happy traveling! – Bill
