I write about design all the time but I don't think I've ever described a space as accurately or hilariously as Bethenny Frankel described the newly redecorated Casa de Zarin on The Real Housewives of NYC last night. I died. This is so worth sitting in front of my Samsung and rewinding and freezing the screen to try and get snapshots. HELLO BRAVO.TV.COM - YOU NEED TO HAVE A TOUR OF THE JOINT ON YOUR WEBSITE!
I also died that Jill said a few weeks ago "I'm tired of being traditional girl. It's time for me to be Mid-Century Modern girl." Oh Jill, that is NOT Mid-Century Modern. It's like Jonathan Adler and Kelly Wearstler got high together and tripled all of their Hollywood Regency style. Literally, I counted at least three pairs of identical turquoise foo dogs in there!
The hallway is like a funhouse, complete with crazy mirror:
One foo, two foo, red foo, blue foo....
Who the hell leaves their place settings out on the table to collect dust besides bad model home stagers? Oh, and don't even get me started on those mirrored "P" "O" "P" side tables - hilarious. Brad certainly did mark his territory ALL OVER that apartment. Here he tries to convince Jill that they are beautiful works of custom sculpture, especially once you put stuff on top of them(!?):
One last quote from Bethenny: "It's like Ivana Trump. There are like, things dangling from everywhere!"
