Kathryn Ireland

Kathryn describes the antics she, Martyn, and Mary went through to bring Greystone Mansion back to life and into the 21st century.

This is my favorite episode so far. Love all the interaction between Mary, Martyn, and myself. It's a shame that Jeffrey, Ross and my paddle-boarding adventure didn't make any episode but there's a snippet here at the Bravo site. It's important that everyone knows that we are all friends and fans of each other. It adds fun and amusement to our otherwise stressful lives.



Greystone Mansion is an iconic Beverly Hills home and was used in the movie There Will Be Blood with Daniel Day Lewis. It's as close as we get here in LA to the older, English-style aristocratic homes. I've done a Veranada Magazine show house here before, so I'm familiar with how difficult these show houses can be, not to mention the cost. Having paid my dues over the years, I like to do the smaller spaces that don't take too much time out of my overloaded life.

I wished we could have seen your paddle boarding adventure with Jeffery and Ross! That sounds hilarious!

You by far design the most livable homes

Kathryn, love you on the show and love, love, love your rooms in Greystone.  What keeps me watching this show is that all of you get along so well.  There is always a little drama (will Martin's trucks get there on time), always humor (your pilates and your housekeeper) some sniping at each other (LOVE THAT), but most of all you all come  across as real human beings who like and respect each other.  That is so evident in this show, AND SO MISSING FROM THE DIFFERENT HOUSEWIVES SHOWS!!

Looking forward to many more episodes of my favorite reality show.  Keep up the good work.

Kathryn no more comments about wide receivers with your legs spread wide apart like that, please! You and your housekeeper(winekeeper?) are hilarious...but what the hell do you pay her for? all she does is drink your wine all day it seems!

Love you Kathryn! Loved your English boyfriend and your elegantly relaxed design style. You are quirky and real which endears you to everyone! Would love you to have your designs reach more of the masses via JC Penny or similar! Xoxoxo

Kathryn's siting room was fantastic!  Loved the placement of the 2 chairs and the scale of the small room with the pieces she chose.  Kathryn as always is a gorgeous, ceative lady and I love her sophistication and style!

Love you, love your books! The funny thing is, you and Mary are my two favorite decorators and I think I'd like my home to reflect some elements of both of your styles. You've also inspired me to take up pilates again in the new year - you look fabulous!

I remember the first time I saw the rooms decorated in the mansion.  Kathryn, your  little kitchen is the most inviting room by far!  Mary's hallway, though beautiful, would make me nervous to spend any time there.  I'd be too afraid to touch something!  You were robbed!  You deserve a four page spread!

Please Darling Kathryn, tell us what happened to that dreadful Mrs. Factor banshee from last season, please! I personally adored your kitchen and when I am rich I shall beg you to do my home(s). xxoo
