I can not tell you how much I admire California designer Rose Tarlow. I first met Rose when she shared her spectacular home on my show "Homes Across America." She is one of our Design Icons and she continues to inspired us all with her superb design sense. She and Luxe magazine hosted a lecture on design at the spectacular new showroom on Melrose Ave. East Coast/ West Coast design influences was the topic, during La Cienega Design week. Seems like everyone in the Design community turned out for this event: June & Scott Brown visiting from Oregon, ,Michael Wollaeger, Editor at Large with Kelly Persellin of Luxe; Rocky LaFleur, Barclay Buttera, my daughter Meg who joined me for the day, Peter Dunham, Marcie Bronkar...to name only a few. What a wonderful new home for Rose Tarlow.
