Speaking of listening to me, if you hear one thing right now hear this: Nancy or Le Schmance (how I personally like to refer to her in the office) is very, very smart. Having attended Berkeley She is much smarter than I actually, which never really bothers me because she always flatters me by calling me a true artist, and I buy it every time. I love flattery but who doesn't? After all I am a "True Artist." Le Schmance from Berkeley said so, and people that go to Berkeley know their stuff. Right? It feels good nonetheless so I just sit back and soak it in.
Back to then point about Le Schmance and her IQ: she does not think giraffes are extinct and got her words mixed up, which I found hilarious with a capital H! She really set herself up for the pterodactyl comment. I saw the horror in her eyes when she realized what she had said but ah too late, caught on camera! This is actually the fun of all this: my big bum in a horrid from behind dress, unretractable comments etc. One must have to have a laugh at the humor here because life in and of itself is one big foible, or we wouldn't all relate to Woody Allen, who is also a fellow Sag, btw. (Oh, not the Soon-Yi part though, that one is a little off my radar, but whatever works for you.)
Back to Nancy, I must say exactly what I love her for is why we have these power plays. I can give Nancy a huge job to project manage, and, because she is a grown woman with years of experience from the best of firms, it gets done. But -- can I be the boss for a second here? Can someone please just do what I want and put the bed where I want it? We all know the answer to that: NO. It is like I left money in my will, and people are spending it before I am dead. I am alive and well and standing next to you on the install.
I would have left Nancy's bed choice. I was so out of time, and it was not actually bad there either -- but then Nancy would have WON! We can't have that or the game wouldn't be interesting now would it?
Mary really I just think your taste is spot on to each task! Your desire for bazaar collections (turtles, really?) is mad and I am loving everything you are doing so far!
Mary, I LOve you. I know that is a bit much, in that we have never met and I am basing this on two episodes and a book and maybe some references in my blog but leo and sag are always good together and you crack me up. Honestly, I don't think, I have ever had a person on TV, a real person anyway, slay me like you do. and I wont even get started on the clothes and the shoes and the decor, though I did rewind the up the stairs shot and say to my daughter "I thought she was tiny?" who knew. I am sure it looked good in person.Love you!!!
well I must say I truly liked the show better this week Mary becasue of you...I might watch it now... thanks for bringing down the snubbing some...
Mary, that pterodactyl comment made me laugh out loud, I love your sense of humor. I was wondering if you would share the paint color/type in your office. It's beautiful. Thanks!
Mary love your style. You make me laugh and want to redo my entire home all at the same time. Great Fun! Love the show.
This is my new favorite show, I love your attitude & style. So glad to have a REAL decorating show that isn't on a $500.00 budget in 2 days! Don't get me wrong I loved those when I was broke and in an apartment, but this is a show for grown ups with real homes & it is inspiring and WONDERFUL!! Thank you all for signing up and letting us see!
Mary, you're fabulous, but you already know that. What I need to know is the paint color you used on the walls in Kendras guest house. It is just what my bedroom ordered.
You are perfectly devine! Hilarious writer! I think you could have another job if your full-time occupation didn't consume every day but somehow I feel you manage to balance (shop, work, friends/family) very well. I love the show! You are a gem!
You don't seem at all like Karen from Will and Grace. She was very funny and you are all business and rarely smile.
Meh - I get the impression that you think being rude and ill-mannered is justified by your "Talent." Guess again.
Great fun for all.The rougher the economy gets for "the little people" the more we need reminded that fantasy land where money is no object still exist.
As a complete amateur (and certainly one without a million dollar budget), I've been cutting out pictures of your designs from magazine spreads for years without recognizing that they were yours. I also really like the video clips of your office on the show. I am curious--did you use paint or ribbon for the black stripe up the chair rail on your stairway? Thanks! SM
as a designer of homes and MMac style Jewels, I love you. Thanks for keeping it clear. for 40 years the clients have gotten more privileged. If I get nonsense from the clients,I have them read YOUR blogs. Love your association with Schumacher. It is wonderful to be feel free, graphic and know that it is OK to be in style: Clothes, travel, homes can be wonderfully devloped as long as your feet, not your ass, are planted on the ground. That and "WHY DON'T YOU JUST LISTEN TO WHAT I AM TELLING YOU" My private primal scream to the Atlantic from the shores of BOSTON: Muah, Muah
