It’s always funny/scary when your boyfriend starts knowing about as much as you do about interior design! (and by you, I mean me)
My boyfriend Ben follows our blog religiously (as does other MG boyfriends/husbands apparently- ahem Bryce) and just the other day he flat out said- “you can mix silver and gold in a room”….oh really? Mr. design expert? Apparently he learned that important fact from one of Hilary’s recent posts. He was so proud of himself that I had to laugh (and then tell everyone I know). He has come so far from when I first taught him what a sconce was. Now he suggests sconces to solve any and all design problems- “sconce it up” has become a popular catch phrase around the house.
With that said, he does very well in keeping me abreast of whatever new design info or celeb gossip he comes across (which I can appreciate) and tonight he did inform me of both. Supposedly, Madge wants Gwynnie to design her newly adopted baby Mercy’s room in her NY townhouse (read it here!)
Madge thinks that Gwynnie would be the PERFECT candidate. She was so impressed by the room Gwynnie designed for her daughter Apple (in her Hampton’s home) that she thought what better person than BFF G. Palt to get the job done right.
We all know that Gwyneth has deemed herself a lifestyle expert/fashionista through her newsletter GOOP…but have you read it? I’m not a huge fan. Do you think Gwyneth is the style maven that she makes herself out to be? Does she have what it takes to design Mercy’s room as pretty as Apple’s? (and the real question is…did she even design Apple’s room entirely by herself?) Let’s ponder that!
