I love her style

This is Ina Garten, otherwise known as the Barefoot Contessa, in her New York City apartment.

Most pictures of Ina depict her in that amazing kitchen of her home in the Hamptons, but when I saw this photo it confirmed what I had decided the first time I bought one of her cookbooks. She has serious style. She keeps it simple in the kitchen; her recipes are always things that you want to eat. A perfect roast chicken, a sexy cocktail, a luscious layer cake. No fussy, complicated meals. And her home has that clean, lovely, comfortable ambience that makes you wish she were your friend and you could stop in for the random coffee and biscotti anytime.

So of course her home in the city has that stamp of her personal style. Of course.
