“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” ~ Charles W. Eliot

Today’s post is a look back on an old favorite…the spread, Nina Griscom‘s Manhattan town house featured on the pages of House & Garden, October 2006…it seemed like a perfect segue from yesterday’s post and seeing as this is one of my “go to” interiors for inspiration, I thought you would enjoy it too…

Still just as timeless today as it was 6 years ago, this home exudes elegance and sophistication…a muse for the late designer Bill Blass, Nina attributes much of what she knows to the maestro’s thoughtful mentoring, citing specifics such as: the importance of scale and juxtaposition, how to walk into an antiquaire’s, how questions are asked, how deals are made, and the need for a sense of humor…gifts from Blass are displayed throughout the five-story town house and carry deep personal meaning…what a beautiful tribute to his legacy and what a gorgeous space to call home…truly a timeless jewel

As I poured through the March 2012 issue of Elle Decor, I was reminded of the December 2008 issue that featured Nina Griscom‘s stunning Millbrook, New York home (above ~ page 58, ED’s “Looking Up” article from March 2012)…the lighter than air palette thoughtfully illuminates her unique collection of natural curiosities and furnishings…from the cast-antler chair in the living room to the twig chandelier in the dining room, this home celebrates the natural world around us…talk about bringing the outdoors in!
