Where all things beautiful collide

The stars aligned yesterday, and it was just too perfect not to talk today about Oscar de la Renta, and quite possibly the most social executive of his company, Erika Bearman, a.k.a. OscarPRGirl as she’s known on social media outlets from Twitter to Instagram.  Yesterday Mr. De la Renta showed his spring 2014 collection, that was as pretty as can be with the most classic “Oscar” (both the man and the award) looks that you could dream of for spring.  Seeing the collection yesterday reminded me of flipping through the October issue of Elle Decor, appropriately the fashion issue, and stumbling upon one of the prettiest spaces of late, Ms. Bearman’s Southampton retreat.  What could make a story on one of Oscar de la Renta’s most stylish executives better?  The Creative Director of Oscar de la Renta Home, Miles Redd (one of my all-time favorite decorators), decorated her perfectly pretty getaway!  Too much for me to handle!!  With that, I present you Erika’s house in its entirety as seem in the magazine, and some of my favorite spring looks from her extremely talented boss!

I’m coveting those glossy teal walls and floral watercolor, purchased at Christie’s.  Erika wears one of her effortless combinations, an Oscar de la Renta skirt with a J. Crew shirt.

I have to point out how perfectly the polka dots seen on a few looks at Oscar’s spring show coordinate with the Damien Hirst hanging above Bearman’s sofa.

Neither Oscar de la Renta or Miles Redd are afraid of color or pattern, or any mix thereof.

This bedroom featuring China Seas’ ‘Lyford Trellis’ and bold yellow floors is quintessential Redd, and a room I would not want to leave!

Now this is how you design a bedroom with a man and woman in mind.  Classic, tailored, crisp, and still pretty!

My favorite thing about this kitchen?  The Oscar de la Renta for Century chair pulled in from the dining room.  That’s effortless living!
