She Who Loves Butterflies and Design That Makes Me Say, "Hot Damn!"

Wednesday and Thursday nights are hockey nights and waiting for my son's practice to end provides me with an hour to peruse Barnes & Noble.
I always make a beeline to the magazine section.  I love the magazine racks; all those fresh glossy beauties winking at me from their shelf.

For the first time in a long time, I was drawn to the cover of Architectural Digest.
Flipping through was delightful, but finding Daphne Guiness' spectacular Manhattan apartment was jaw-dropping.

I wanted somebody (anybody, really) to join me in my magazine gawk.

Caption reads:  "A colossal 2003 Damien Hirst butterfly painting, Another Amazing Transcendental Experience, and a circa-1050 Jansen palm tree floor lamp from Maison Gerard greet visitors in the entry hall.

Funny, this is not my typical style.  I'm not sure why I'm so completely taken with this space.  (I know one lovely blogger who shares the butterfly love, though!)
I do believe, however, I could put every single item, on it's own, in my house and it would fit right in. 

I was quite lucky to find these images scanned by 2THEWALLS.COM
(A very good post accompanies the pictures -- great read!!)

I'll buy the March issue of AD next time I'm in Barnes & Noble.  I need to ooh and ahh over Donna Karan's home.
