“I tried to make it fit into the rest of the apartment while still staying girly,” says Laura of baby Georgiana’s room. “I painted it light gray, but I hung this hot-pink painting of Elizabeth Taylor by Russell Young. This room is my favorite.” from vogue.com




“My mother says I didn't open my eyes for eight days after I was born, but when I did, the first thing I saw was an engagement ring. I was hooked.”  Elizabeth Taylor

  1. Last night I heard Carol Burnett interviewed on NPR she spoke about her friend Elizabeth Taylor. She said she was so funny, witty like the quote you have included. Delightful room. It is always a pleasure to see you blog


  2. I loved that quote and stumbled onto this interior this morning and it seemed to fit. Glad you are back! gaye

  3. I am gald that you posted this shot. I think that it took a little daring -do to hang this in an infants room....but I personally love it. And if baby girl is tired of it, I'll spring for the postage . I have a hallway just begging for it....k

  4. Oh my! That picture is fabulous. I must check out Russell Young's work. I'd love one of those xx

  5. I know you will ALL appreciate this comment on one of the Elizabeth Taylor posts I did over the 2 days-

    """ hope you do more posts on Elizabeth Taylor. I hope you become obsessed by her and do a series as long as your lavender series."""
