Simultaneously occurring with KBIS was the International Window Coverings Expo that I attended as well.  One of the luncheons was with acclaimed decorator Kathryn M. Ireland (not the swimsuit model).  She gave a presentation covering her career in decorating.  Her natural talent combined with great opportunity and connections her husband had working on Saturday Night Live, she has done many of Hollywood’s homes, including the one Reese Witherspoon bought from her, turn-key!

Kathryn has recently published her book entitled Summer In France detailing the restoration of her house near Toulouse.

The estate is called La Castellane.

The book is a fabulous mixture of decorating, travel and even food!  If you have a love for France (like I do) you will not regret getting this book.

I got mine signed, of course.

More great KBIS and IWCE info to come!
