One can see how a designer's own process can drag on, even for ourselves, with shifts and changes even we don't expect as last minute additions come about. I seem to make quite a few U-turns. By the way please remind me to never wear that snake print '50s style dress again because I look enormous. Also, never never never let a camera shoot me from below. . .what the heck is that angle? The old lady neck angle? Yikes.. I am calling Demi right now and asking who nipped and tucked it all. . .like right now. . .or maybe Nicole or Michelle. Please. . .something has gotta give and I don't mean those Diane Keaton turtlenecks!
How much do I love Jeffrey and Ross for being BEYOND gentlemanly and gracious about the continual resurfacing of my book and lamps by their client for inspiration. I know first-hand how annoying that is, but must say they handled it very elegantly and were above it all, which is the sign of a designer with complete confidence who lets nothing ruffle them or pull focus. After all why should it? They are both fabulously talented and ridiculously gorgeous to boot. Oh hold on my new business manager client Hillary is at the door. Haha. Oh relax people, it is just a joke!
I love your home redesign. During the shoot one scene showed a bust idling on the mantel. and the stills show it positioned on a table or desk. Is it Diana Vreeland? Anyway such a great piece.
I loved seeing your house and the dogs too. Although Stacey dash may be acting, she is equal in drama to Martyn, so such a good combination and far better than having to watch LiLo.
LOL when I saw the ep I knew you'd be fuming about the turkey neck camera angles! I mean, were they doing it on purpose or what? You must have it written in the contract no filming from below! This is why women stop stop going on top after a certain age...if you get what I mean ;)
I love to watch you on the show. You're so entertaining without trying too hard. Loved seeing a little bit of your home, dogs and all. I hope we'll get to see more!!! I'm really interested how you end up decorating your bedroom, as I am decorating mine now. I draw inspiration from your book and look forward to the fabric line with Schumacher you have coming out in 2013.
Also, I agree about Stacey Dash. It was so awkward watching her act, I was uncomfortable watching her and couldn't quite figure out why. I thought maybe she was loopy from something she took and that was why she was acting so weird. She was very self-conscious and just acting for the camera.
No Mary, you are so beautiful! What are you talking about, shooting from below, etc.? I never noticed or saw any of those things you mentioned about your looks and I think you are being way over-critical of yourself. You are gorgeous. Please do not be hard on yourself and don't change a thing. You do not need it.
Mary, I just simply love you. You're witty with a little edge and somehow don't seem to take yourself all that seriously in the end. Love your sense of humor.
Mary, you are wonderful. I enjoyed seeing a bit of your "personal" side this episode. I have long respected your professionalism and grace, but it was refreshing to see a vulnerable moment or two.
Good luck Mary! Break ups are hard, but that's what lots of puggles are for right? Lots and lots of huggles! You and Nathan together are so cute! My sister and I are just like this! Hmmm... which one of us would be Nathan then? haha! I loved the part when you and Nathan are on the couch together and all hell breaks loose and the dogs take over! And it was a pretty small couch too! Can't wait to see the next install!
Oh, yes. Definitely a performance, just not an Academy award worthy-one, IMO. Mary, you are beautiful and gracious and so funny! Life changes do throw one for a loop, but good friends - like Nathan - should help. LOVED the wallpaper you chose. Embrace now? Sure, but embrace yourself, independent and talented and beautiful - even better!
You're so funny! I thought Stacey was doing Jane Fonda....and by that I mean Jane Fonda in character! I loved that floor, Mary, I would have been more interested to see what wallpapr you would have used to match that floor over changing the floor for such a traditional paper! Anyway, I'm clarified your moving situation, it was gettin confusing, but one thing that wasn't confusing: You are a very good for letting someone stay with you while you were also moving! I think I'm nice, but I'm not THAT nice!
Love all that you do! I know you don't need to hear this(because you reallly are so talented) but I love the work you do!! I also think you are so funny and charming. I would love it if Bravo had a show with just you and Nathan all about your work and friendship...it would be a sure hit!
I also think you look beautiful and don't need any work...but you might ask kathryn who "did" her ' cause she is looking so much better this season.
Love you Mary....can't wait for your next book to come out!
