This month's Lonny! It's fabulous -- Michelle, Patrick, Ellie and Co. nabbed Albert Hadley, dean of American decorators. What a coup! Plus they're the first people in recent memory to use one my fave old Decorator's Walk (now Schumacher) prints, "Hiro," on this snappy holiday table:
Here we are at Morandi, throwing items on the wall to see if they stick:
And here's what I'm stuck on:
That adorable chair above is covered in one of the new Oscar de la Renta fabrics for Lee Jofa -- check out Mugatu's Emerald Satin Fantasy Suite, created for the NY showroom. It's a mad, mad, madly chic world!

Some kind of animal in your store/store window this holiday season, you're over. Tory has a pair of gigunda Lite-Brite stags (above, requiring 2,025,000 pegs each). Kate's Paperie and Jamie Meares have peacocks:
Uniqlo forced a plushie zebra to wear polar fleece. "We Are the Superlative Conspiracy" (HUH?) wins points for its papier-mâché wolf, and I wish I could find a better photo of Opening Ceremony's huge ostrich vitrine at the Ace Hotel (that's its rump on the left):
Funny because Mugatu was just telling me about a certain lady's (whose code name derives from this Bobbie Gentry chestnut) Christmas decoration in epic detail, as is his way. Apparently she has all manner of gilt bronze fawns scattered hither and thither, making me think there's a Skull & Bones-type meeting in the basement of the Met every season to decide what counts as chic.
So what's your Holiday Animal? I'm deciding between this Waylande Gregory leopard (available at Flair):
Or the common lemur.
