Charlotte Moss

I love Charlotte Moss. I'm sure everyone else has seen her back courtyard of her house on the Upper East Side, but I hadn't till recently. At first I thought it was the courtyard of her 5 floor store, but it's not (I can't wait to finally get to NY to see her new store!) I came across it here in New York Magazine's home design section.

I love the symmetry of the overall design, the fireplace and that beautiful green painted Trellis. Green is the new black, people! That oversized lantern is FANTASTIC too and the windows on her house are really beautiful! That trellis'd area is such a cozy spot for dinner, drinks with friends or to enjoy the cool night air with a fire roaring! The whole backyard looks like from a townhouse in New Orleans, especially with those over-sized lanterns on the house.

One quote I loved from the article was that
"She’ll create a book of photographs for clients using their silver, china, and crystal arranged in different table settings, so they’re not afraid of their own belongings. Too many people fear entertaining, she says, “because they’re not ready. I do this for clients all the time. I love it. It’s the detail part.”"

Love to be a guest at one of her parties! The city has always held intrigue for me, one of the reasons I moved to New York! Although I live outside the city now after children, it still has a unique and elegant style. It will always be a mecca of style!

Yes, pve, so many creative and interesting people seem to move to NY - always makes me want to move there myself! Maybe one of these days....

I bought her new book and bought one for my mom too. She just called me about an hour ago to go over the photographs, oohing and awing. The woman is amazing. Did you notice the comment someone on A.Lament made about her Bruce chairs, how they weren't good in her home. BS!!!!!
I love the pavillion with the fireplace!!! I"d be out there with my laptop every night.

You should definitely visit her shop when you get up to NY. You won't be disappointed! And, the shop is chock full of new things for the summer!

Probably won't make it up till the fall unfortunately, POC! I hope she has a lot of new things for the fall then as well :-)
