By Jane Rozelle. Photography Rhi Lee. P er Hutton Wilkinson, who penned the foreword in Michelle Nussbaumer's premier tome, Wanderlust: Interiors that Bring the World Home (Rizzoli), the eccentric, well-traveled interior designer is "a dream catcher, a three-dimensional storyteller, a seductive sorceress whose enchanted vision must be obeyed." Few could argue with such a depiction, as Nussbaumer — a self-proclaimed citizen of the world — seems to magically transport herself into the chicest scenarios all over the globe. At one moment she may be ensconced in her family's Gstaad chalet, then poof, hosting a dinner party at her San Miguel estate. At home in Dallas, she could be zipping around town in her custom pink ikat truck or cozying up in her Wilson McClure-designed home, surrounded by a zany menagerie of pets. During this particular pause in town, Nussbaumer planted her traveling shoes at Forty Five Ten for a book-signing soirée — and one of the store's fi nal fêtes before last month's move to new digs downtown. Guests pored over the tales of Nussbaumer's travels abroad and photographs of her awe-inspiring, international design projects. Whether she is unearthing treasures at markets in Fez or scouring the Marché aux Puces fl ea market in Paris, one thing is certain: To step into Nussbaumer's stylish, eccentric world is to enter a scene straight out of Auntie Mame — leopard-print chaises, wildly fashionable ensembles, and martinis included. 70 A HOUSE SHOULD NEVER BE FINISHED.
