So I missed the State of the Union last night. I was picking up COCOCOZY catalogs, doing a conference call on p.r., and getting my nails done. I know...I should have taken the time out to engage and learn what is going on in our country! Oy va voy. Am in a COCOCOZY textiles bubble...running hither and thither trying to get things done before I head off to the New York International Gift Fair to show my textiles collection this weekend. I hope I didn't miss anything big...any big announcements. I wonder if anyone would tell me if I did. I guess I could actually read a newspaper and find out...but that would require me either getting a newspaper or taking the time to head over to a news website and actually read something worthwhile...hmmmm...nope...no time. Someone fill me in if I missed something big please...thank you.
Anyhooo...have been up since 5a (kind of a regular thing these days) and missing the state of the union got me to thinking not about the political landscape in our country but about my days in D.C. (I lived in D.C. during graduate school)...so that got me to thinking what it would be like to live in D.C. and then I started pondering D.C. real estate and I came upon this historic home in Washington, D.C. - our nation's capital. Now notice, I still have not pondered anything serious yet...nothing to do with economics, politics, the general welfare of our nation, education etc...oh dear...am worried...have I forgotten how to be a critical thinker, have I lost all sense of current events, have I become a one trick design pony? Don't answer...please...rhetorical question.
Anyhoooooo once again... So onto this historic Washington D.C. estate. This home is for sale for almost $7.5 million dollars and is listed by Sotheby's International Realty. 6 bedrooms, 7 baths in 9,710 square feet, this home was built in 1929 by a philanthropist as a wedding gift for his daughter. The exterior is stone with some Tudor accents and the interior as been completely renovated with all modern amenities. Clearly this home is staged for selling.
I would take it and make it my own...lots of decorating to do definitely. Decor style is too generic but it is staged for sale. Even though not great design as shown, I could work with the bones of this place. Plus, if someone offered it to me, who am I to turn down a $7.5 million dollar home? Rhetorical question again.
My favorite part is the painted stone walls throughout and the fact that it has its own oval office! Take a look in today's SEE THIS HOUSE!

|I like the textured hide rug. (above)|

Hope you all are doing well!
P.S. The COCOCOZY catalog looks fantastic by the way...will reveal it a little later. Thank you again for your help in picking the cover!
P.P.S. Running like a chicken with no head today...AGAIN. It has become my new normal!
P.P.P.S. Am bringing 5 pairs of boots to NYC + lots of other shoes...is that too much? Another question that I know the answer to...
P.P.P.P.S. Need to learn to pack light. Is there a class for this?
P.P.P.P.P.S. Reminder...Special Edition Valentine's Day candles are still available!
