Elegantly, uppercrust...

Painting of "The Peacock Kimono", by Evan Wilson
The new traditionalists we call them, the modern preppy... 
A life that is, seemingly, perfectly, well-organized, well-planned, and well-thought out.
These are the fantasies I conjure up in my head, as I look at these images...
Of course, no one's life is perfect...but it sure is easy to think it is,
when art and home, look as beautiful, and put together, as this...
(And they just happen to be (mostly) in shades of gorgeous green).

One of my favorite rooms of all time, is Billy Baldwin's insanely gorgeous 
salon, (above left), that he decorated for Marie-Laure de Noailles. 
I wish I knew who the photographer was that shot this, 
because, he, or she, played a big part in the brilliance that it is.


Gisela von Wehner by Albert von Keller, 1906
