White euphorbia flowers. The walls are a beautiful pale lavender. Aerin left the room just the way Estée decorated it. It’s still beautiful. The photo is of Princesses Grace Grimaldi complete with tiara.
I recently did a photo shoot for Elle Decor magazine’s Korean edition. We shot at Aerin Lauder’s gorgeous home right here in the Hamptons. The house belonged to Aerin’s grandmother, the inimitable Estée Lauder. Like her grandmother, Aerin has phenomenal taste and style. Her grandmother is very much present in the house as you can see from the tablescape we put together for the magazine. Her pictures are a lasting reminder of this great influence on Aerin and women of style everywhere. Do you recognize any of her famous friends? Read the rest of this entry →

Almost as beautiful as its hostess, Aerin
The Veranda article featured a New Year’s luncheon in her family’s barn. Rustic was the look Aerin wanted to capture. It was a perfect match for the table cloth, wonderful wood chargers and china — all from the new home collection. By using evergreens, berries, pinecones and nuts, we gave Aerin the feeling she was after. I love how it turned out. More importantly she loved it. Take a look at the magazine on the news stands and also on-line. And make sure to visit Aerin’s own website for great ideas from Aerin on everything from entertaining, to decorating, to travel to great restaurants.
