My first post for Curbed National!

Today is THE DAY!

Head on over to Curbed National to read my first post.

I will be writing Curbed National's newest column "Moonlighting," highlighting celebrities who dabble in interior design.

Some triumph, some flop, and some should never, ever give up their day job.

Congratulations and great column!

One of the many things I adore about you is how you know all these things. I didn't know DVF had new lines of anything home related, much less that she designed for Sears back in the day. I'm digging the striped chargers.

I can hardly wait for your future article -- and I truly have blocked the name from memory -- on the magician turned fashion designer turned furniture designer! My clients had gone to a charity auction and "won" the most unbelievable huge cabinet you could imagine and they wanted to design their new Palm Beach apartment around it! "Magician" is the key word, and I had wished I could have sawn it in half, if not disappeared altogether!

Raina - congrats on the new gig and your other reveals - I'm so excited to see how everything plays out!!! Some day I'll say, I knew that (famous designer) Raina when she lived in Denver and she was almost my designer once!

It was a bit tame, but definitely interesting.Great reporting, but where is your point of view? I have this weird memory as a kid of always knowing who she was. (We probably shopped Sears too much.) If you ever get up to CT, Raina, I'll make sure we make it to Cloudwalk.
