Today's charming space is an upstairs room in a New York townhouse, in the West Village, that was once owned by musician Billy Joel and his ex-wife Katie Lee, who used it as a casual living room. It was Nate Berkus who helped them with the design. I like how well balanced it is; how the gold and brown shades make the room look warm without being heavy. I love the white bookshelves and the small lamps attached to them. It's such a beautiful space.
On a personal note, I'm feeling better today but now our son is sick. It happens to be A's birthday and this morning our son asked if his father was 99 years old. Ahem ... he's older than I am but he's not quite there yet!
