Welcome to my beloved friends and followers — THE STYLE SALONISTE is back!

After a pause, I have returned with cultural news, books, travel, events, and all my favorite places and people to reveal to you.

You will be happy to hear that art director, Brian Dittmar, and I are once more working together to bring THE STYLE SALONISTE to you. Brian was the founding art director and he creates the beautiful layouts. He is also the owner/ founder of a marvelous new gallery and retail boutique, Maker + Muse, in Maplewood, New Jersey. Meet him there.
I’m happy that you all have followed me over to Instagram — @dianedorranssaeks and #mylifetimelibrary. I post my adventures and travels, new books, and flowers and style and especially luxury interiors and great interior designers.
This week, I‘m delighted with the news that in San Francisco, our cultural life is returning with the opening of San Francisco Opera and a magnificent and bold fall season.
