Ten Details from Veranda Magazine's House of Windsor (that you haven't seen in the magazine)

 I spent 4 days in July out in L.A. at Veranda Magazine's House of Windsor concept house. I was there for Benjamin Moore, alongside interior designer Tracy Morris, who had the uncanny, and at first intimidating ability to rattle off 99% of the Benjamin Moore paint deck colors and coordinating numbers from memory. In addition to engaging guests in conversation about paint, color, and design, I took lots of pics. It was a great event and I XOXO-ed being there.

Here're ten of my shots from The House of Windsor that did not appear in the October issue of Veranda.

1. Within arms length, Martyn Lawrence Bullard's decorated wrist
2. the awesome beaded chair in Windsor Smith's family room
3. the fun mostly vintage book selection in Peter Dunham's study
4. the constant flow of beverages thanks to Scott from Cappuccino on Call
5. the stone urn in Richard Hallberg's dining room
6. one example from the parade of colorfully dressed Californians
7. zigzag stitchery on fabric-wrapped objet in Richard Shapiro's great room
8. the eclectic assortment of art in Kathryn Ireland's tricked out stable
9. the compelling patina of old books
10. the art of matching paint to pedicures
