Re: DOMINICK DUNNE'S COUNTRY HOUSE

Like the pictures of his home shared by the OP this is a really nice and simple look for an apartment. I don't like clutter and the warm colors are perfect for relaxing. Thanks for sharing!

I would be very comfortable and happy in this home, it is so warm and inviting and has much appeal in its furnishings and decor.

Re: DOMINICK DUNNE'S COUNTRY HOUSE

Wow, thanks for posting those pictures of his charming apartment, @Somertime!  I've always wanted to see how he would live in a city apartment.

 

Have always been interested in John Gregory Dunne and Joan Didion's places too.  But I don't think they went in for spreads in "Architectural Digest", ha.  Could be wrong, but haven't stumbled on anything.

 

There seems to be a 'family interest' in houses and interiors--  judging by Didion's writings.  And her hubby John G. showed his fastidiousness--  in one of her autobiographical pieces, she mentions the 'relaxed' housekeeping standards of her childhood homes in California and elsewhere.  Once when visiting her parents, I think, John Gregory Dunne went around writing "DUST" in the dust he found on furniture etc. around the house!

Re: DOMINICK DUNNE'S COUNTRY HOUSE

New York mystifies me.  How can anyone relax in an outdoor space with potentially several thousand people staring from their windows at you?  I bet those spaces aren't much used, especially if the resident is a celebrity.

@oznell   Apparently, Griffin Dunne has done a documentary on Joan Didion called:

 

Joan Didion:  The Center Will Not Hold

Re: DOMINICK DUNNE'S COUNTRY HOUSE

@oznell  Thank you for posting the pictures.  The home is lovely, beautifully decorated, and just my style.  I could easily live there.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!
