There have been a lot of new additions to our apartment over the past year. And yes, it’s now full of bright patterns and animals. I basically run a rainbow zoo out of my apartment that also somehow sells designers clothes. Renee gave me a giraffe for my birthday in September, and I still can’t stop hugging it. Its name is Clark and looks pretty good on our sheepskin-covered Armani Casa director’s chair. On my trip to China this past year, I picked up a little dragon from a street market in Kowloon that now hangs from my boyfriend’s tie rack. I’m hoping he’s supposed to bring good luck! I also discovered my new favorite design company, Piling Palang, in Shanghai. Their plate sets are just PERFECT—my three-set has bright acrobats in supercute outfits! In addition to these newbies, I still celebrate my old standbys—Yeti now has a straw hat and Keith (the monkey I “adopted” at Duane Reade when my boyfriend had the flu) now likes to sit in my Bryan Boy for Adrienne Landau box o’ fur.
