Alicia's living room featuring MGBW sofa
I've written several times about the fantastic work Beth Kushnick does as set decorator for The Good Wife. Her settings are always designed to be beautifully tailored to the characters that live in them. But what if you want to have some of the style (and maybe not so much of the drama) for yourself? Well, now you can.
One of the hardest things about being a designer is that when you know how many options are out there, it's nearly impossible to make a decision in your own home. Every time you think you've landed on the right thing, you see some cool new thing in a store or magazine or blog.
One style I've never grown tired of is Frank Lloyd Wright's Crafstman design. What makes his architecture and furnishings classic is that they're adapted to their surroundings.

What to do on a cloudy Sunday afternoon? A visit to one of the many amazing museums the city has to offer is always a good call. It was a toss up between the Frick and the Met. Then I remembered that my credit card offered free admission to several museums the first weekend of each month. Bargain in place, dilemma solved.
