Mary shares what she really cares (her wardrobe choices) and thinks Margie's dog paid someone off.

I think for our first episode we get to see the most hair raising drama from Martyn and his Tamara Mellon install. It simply reminded me to always think ahead to installation and "Do I really want to have to install this megalithic thing?" As for his AWOL vendor, well, it had happened to me before with a couple of well-known names whom I will choose not to ruin here even if they deserve it. . .

 

I felt for him but the result was all ironed out and glam -- as we know Martyn to be. I wonder if she gives him free shoes? Does Jimmy Choo do mens? I would love her for a client for even just that reason. I need a shoe mogul. I am going to get right on that.

Well are we surprised that Kathryn and Jaqueline went wine tasting? Dah. . .no of course not. We must have some consistency in our lives somewhere, and I am grateful to those two for that. I think maybe Jaqueline should have her own blog on life thoughts or something, or how to tie a turban, or maybe just the art of wine tasting. Really anything just so we see her more. Speaking of drinking -- where the heck were Ross and Jeffrey when they got bombed in that wine cellar? I have been to there house and never saw that wine cellar so I am confused. Can someone help me out?

I see in our previews my Monika Chiang client is coming up and her GLAM Soho New York boutique. I also see my India trip with Martyn coming up which was glam, glam, glam, besides a little Delhi belly. I can't wait to see it myself so stay tuned everyone. Thanks for having us back!!!

Mary the guest house is just perfect- I could see it men being comfortable in the surroundings especially the camel colored room so cozy and warm. You're my favorite one to watch especially your comments!

Be still my heart!!!  LOVE the greek key mirror beside the bed.  Can you give particulars such as where to purchase or name of maker?   Is there anywhere on Bravo that gives information on items placed in rooms? ?Thank you!!  Love the show!

Beautiful guest house. Nice proportions, lovely textures, textiles, colors. I'm glad they showed the puppy and his bad behavior. It lent an element of humor and honesty to a show which sometimes glorifies the ostentatious.

Hi Mary,  You are too funny.  I'm right there with you sister.... I have to DVR the series because I'm watching what you have on, how your hair looks etc., - and you look fabulous!!! But then I miss the all the designing and decorating tips.  Keep it up; I love your style and most of all, your honesty!  Can't wait till next week.

Miss Karen... I so love it when you and Jack... err, sorry Mary I confused you with someone else for for some reason.  

 

I so love it when you and Nathan are together.  Your chemistry seems quite special - something that makes me smile - can't wait til next week to see it in action once more. 

 

I have to say, with all due respect to all the other designers, I am left dumbstruck by the ease with which you create such sophisticated and elegant comfort in a room.  I've so enjoyed the portfolio on your website - truly a pleasure to view.  Next lifetime... I'm hiring you!  <wink!>

 

Thanks for sharing yourself (and Nathan) with us!

I'm so glad your show is back on!!!!  I love it!  You're always so funny and glamourous and I truly enjoy seeing the before and after rooms that you decorate.  They're beautiful!  I must agree that Margie did not need to hang that painting.  If she had asked you to incorporate it into the design to begin with,  I'm sure you would have done so beautifully. So glad you're back...
