Yesterday Mom and I had the privilege of attending a lecture from the Prince of Chintz himself, Mario Buatta. The lecture and book signing were hosted by Cowtan & Tout in honor of Mario's new book "Mario Buatta, Fifty Years of American Interior Decoration". The event was held at the Hay Adams Hotel across from the White House which boasted amazing views, almost as stunning as Buatta's interiors. I didn't want to be that girl who asked to take a picture with him (partly because I didn't want to be that girl, but mainly because I am currently the size of a mini cooper) so please excuse the stalkerish photo I took of the man, but I had to document the wonderful afternoon!
If you don't have the new book, put it on your Christmas list! It will not disappoint!
