Patricia Launches Luxurious Home  Collection

The Patricia Altschul collection is where luxury meets accessibility.  It has been specifically curated to bring a sense of allure and a touch of elegance to any room.

One of Altschul’s favorite pieces in the line, she shares, is a cozy, faux fur-lined robe that comes in colors like orchid and eggshell. “The original robe that inspired me was cashmere with real chinchilla fur and cost thousands of dollars,” she says. “We redesigned it to be this luxurious-looking robe with a fabric that feels like velvet … it’s quite beautiful.”

Altschul says she hopes the new home collection will inspire people to revamp their homes and make their space more comfortable. She adds: “We all need a little bit of beauty and luxury at this stage of the game.”

You can watch Altschul on HSN on October 26 at 10 p.m. EST and October 27 at 10 a.m., 4 p.m. and 11 p.m. EST and shop the collection on

The Art of Southern Charm

I can’t wait for everyone to read The Art of Southern Charm. It’s a blueprint to have a lovely life, Southern style. I go into everything—I wrote lists of what to do, what not to do, what to buy. I list my favorite things, I talk about the home, personal achievements, and I have a list of authorities who chime in on the various things we are talking about.

Cathy Horyn, a dear friend of mine and the former fashion critic of the New York Times is in the book. She talks about the history of the caftan and why it’s important and who wore it. I talk about how to decorate your house or your apartment, and Mario Buatta answers questions. Katie Lee Joel, who was married to Billy Joel, tells you what to cook on a first date, how to land a man by your cooking. Carolyn Roehm talks about flowers and how to decorate. Georgette Mosbacher tells you how to go about finding a husband. Carson Kressley from Queer Eye talks about what to wear on a first date, and how not to screw it up. I list products and techniques, how to manage your home, what you need to know, and what’s on my kindle.

I have lists of things that I like, things that I dislike—I have one list the “End of Western Civilization” that includes things like the man-bun. You can purchase the book on Amazon for $25.99.
