Design Is….My New Passion

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

For the past few weeks my friend Walt and I have been trying to get together for lunch. Last week that finally happened. Walt and his husband Scott have purchased two spectacular properties in Midtown with the intention of renovating them into the most lush residences ever.  I finally got to see the properties when Walt invited me out last week and walked me through both houses. They are incredible. During our tour, Walt explained that the largest of the homes would be divided into 4 residences, one more fabulous than the next.  This home has been the impetus for a new online magazine being launched by Walt.

Over lunch we discussed the magazine and Walt let me know that he had everyone in place except for his Entertaining Editor.  And guess who he asked to take this very exciting post?  Yes! It’s me, Darlings!  I am thrilled to announce that I am now the Entertaining Editor for Design Is.  As the first issue is scheduled for September, we have tons of work to do.  I will share every step with you on this journey – not only here, but on the Design Is site very soon.  I’m hoping you will follow me and give me your feedback.

This past Saturday, we had our first staff meeting at the amazing home of Walt and Scott.  We had a couple of folks missing, but I am looking forward to meeting them soon.

I thought you would enjoy seeing some shots from our day.

By Day, Walt is a Landscape Architect.....
