I’m back! Well, mostly. Thank you for all of the wonderful prayers and well-wishes over the course of the last week during which I have been recovering from the emergency appendectomy I had last Thursday. Our holiday plans were certainly thrown for a loop, but I am so thankful that this happened at home rather than in New York, where I was the night before I got appendicitis, or in Kansas City, where we were supposed to go for Christmas. I am incredibly grateful for my wonderful husband who has not left my side as well as my amazing surgeon. I really have the best doctors!
Can you believe it is the end of the year? It’s been a very challenging year for us in many ways, my health included, so I am ready to say goodbye to 2012 and ring in 2013 with the hope that I won’t be needing any surgeries next year! The final “fabulous room” of the year is this lovely bedroom by Miles Redd. I’ve spent a lot of time in bed over the past week, so I know the value of a beautiful and cozy bed. This bedroom is chic and stylish in a very classic way—from the embroidered linens and blue palette to the campaign bed and wallpaper. This room is traditional done the Miles Redd way—with the volume turned up! I predict that “pretty” and “traditional” will be quite big in 2013. Stay tuned because next week, I will be sharing the predictions of several respected members of the design community regarding what will be big in 2013 and what we should leave behind in 2012.
