New York Social Diary


This week's New York Social Diary is out and as usual, it's fabulous! If you don't subscribe to it, but you love New York shopping, culture, art, society, and design, you should sign up for it. This week NYSD previews fab designer Thad Hayes' new NY design office. Here's a few pics from the layout. For all you design bloggers who LOVE design books, here's a picture from Thad's collection. Bloggers: Let's see what books Thad reads: Bunny Williams - yes!, Frank Lloyd Wright, yes!, Stefanidis, yes! Billy Baldwin, Albert Hadley, Jed Johnson (didn't like that book, sorry) AND he has my bible: Style by Salandino. Gee, Thad, we have the same taste, why aren't I as famous a designer as you???? The picture below is how he keeps his clients'files. So neat and organized (not like me). Notice it looks like he keeps the fabric samples above in the clear plastic boxes. I'd love to read the names of those clients. Bloggers - how do you keep your current clients' files? I use these shopping bags that I buy wholesale, some are zebra print, some are white, etc. for the samples. I put the papers in Anna Griffin files.

And more of his office library. Notice the framed magazine articles of him on the wall:


This week NYSD visits a horse show in Milbrook, NY. Doesn't this look like an ad from Ralph Lauren?



I don't know who's cuter, the dog or the purse?
