Moment of Luxury Episode Descriptions Back to Home

 

 
#101  "Parisian Luxury Back Home"
Paris, France - Bill Stubbs checks into the former grand Parisian home that is now the Saint James Hotel, and explores the little-known Maison Baccarat Museum and the largest flea market in the world, the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Quen, where he finds an endless array of inspirations for application throughout his townhouse in Houston. He then shows viewers how to enjoy their own "taste of Paris" at home with a Paris-inspired dessert.

#102   "A Day in the Country: From Old England to New England"
Chesham, England/Perryville, Rhode Island - Bill takes us from Old England to New England. He visits the 1790 home/antique shop and cottage garden of his friend in the charming village of Chesham in Buckinghamshire, England. Bill also learns more about his favorite blue and white china from Antiques Roadshow expert, Eric Knowles. He celebrates New England style — from sizzling jonnycakes to classic cars — at the 17th century Perry homestead in Perryville, RI, which houses a magical Japanese garden where we enjoy a quiet moment of luxury..

#103  "Modern Classics: Texas-style Luxuries"

Houston, Texas - Bill gives a personal tour of his beloved hometown, Houston, illustrating the Texas-style luxury of its theatres and classic neighborhoods. Plus, we peek at one of Bill's "works in progress," a total home renovation for a modern Texas family with New England roots. Finally, Bill welcomes his daughter Courtney home to help her select her wedding dress.

#104  "The Latin Tradition of Handmade Luxury"
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico - Bill travels to the heart of Mexico, San Miguel de Allende, founded in 1565. The colonial city's cathedrals, haciendas, cobblestone streets and open-air markets are the backdrop for traditional artisans of all kinds. Bill visits a friend back in Houston who has incorporated wonderful artifacts from San Miguel into her home, and explains how to integrate travel discoveries into daily life.

#105  "Secrets and Sources of an Interior Designer"

New York, New York - For many people New York City is all about grand scale; but for a designer, the city is about the details. Bill visits his favorite architectural salvage emporium and an old world linen shop that specializes in custom embroidery. He meets renowned fellow designer Alexa Hampton, who shares her secret source for exquisite craftsmanship in draperies and upholstery.

#106  "Behind the Scenes at a Designer Showroom"
Dania, Florida - Bill goes behind-the-scenes at the Design Center of America (DCOTA) for the Winter Market, an event that brings together both aspiring and established designers. Offering an exclusive look inside the showrooms, Bill demonstrates how to create an elegant space using simple and accessible materials. Bill encourages some undiscovered design talent waiting in line at Architectural Digest's Designer Open Audition and interviews the premier authority on design, Architectural Digest's eminent editor-in-chief, Paige Rense.

#107  "Living with History"
Blenheim Palace, England - Lady Henrietta Spencer Churchill, the daughter of the Duke of Marlborough, gives Bill a private tour of her ancestral home, Blenheim Palace, one of the most famous in England, a Baroque masterpiece. Bill admires the portrait gallery and the magnificent tapestries adorning the Palace walls, which have inspired him to create his own interpretations at home in Houston.

#108  "America's Castles: The First Gilded Age"
Newport, Rhode Island − Bill visits the grand Newport summer cottages of the Vanderbilt Family and other magnates of the Gilded Age, an era of extreme wealth and extravagance. Bill and his friend, renowned party planner Bryan Rafanelli, transform an ordinary dining room into a luxurious space for entertaining inspired by the Gilded Age.

##109  "Northwest Style: Fresh and Natural"
Seattle and Washington Wine Country - Whether it's seafood, coffee, architecture or design, Seattle, where the high mountains meet Puget Sound, is all about a fresh approach. Bill tastes some local specialties at Pike's market, the oldest farmer's market in the U.S. and brings some fresh ingredients to inspire the chef at the Chateau Ste. Michelle vineyard. There, Bill discovers the art of pairing wine with different food. He also visits a stunning modern, eco-friendly house overlooking Lake Washington.

#110  "Palm Beach Classic"
Palm Beach, Florida - Bill traces the elegant resort's history, from the early 1900s, when American tycoon and Florida East Coast Railway founder Henry Flagler extended his railroad to the area, putting Palm Beach on the map. Bill also explores the city's lifestyle, highlighting the way its natural beauty influences Palm Beach design, from Flagler's Estate, Whitehall, and other mansions to the Brazilian Court Hotel and the grounds of the American Orchid Society.

#111  "Modern Meets Incan"
Lima, Peru - Bill visits Lima's magnificent historic sites and discovers the lasting influence of the Incas on modern day Peru. Peruvian contemporary artisans and designers honor their Incan and pre-Columbian roots in creating some of the world's most fascinating art, textiles, jewelry, modern architecture and food.

#112  "Western Life"
Houston, Texas - Bill saddles up and hits the Salt Grass Trail, where old Texas traditions meet modern luxury, on his way to the world's largest rodeo held every year in Houston. Bill gets fitted for a perfectly "sculpted" cowboy hat and shows viewers how to easily incorporate equestrian and western elements into their own home décor.

#113  "Celebrations"
New York, New York - It's time to celebrate! Bill creates a dramatic table setting from scratch for a major New York benefit. As his own family celebration -- his daughter Courtney's wedding -- is fast approaching, Bill takes Courtney furniture shopping for her new apartment. He also celebrates some of the marvelous people and places which have inspired him this season on Moment of Luxury.

Hi, I'm going to Amsterdam for several weeks this summer. I've spent a fair amount of time there and know about things like the Albert Kippe MArget and flower market. Do you know of other special shops with unique gifts or accessories in or around A'dam? What is your favorite restaurant? Have you ever been to the Wind Mill in Amstelveen?
By M Early

Could you please send me the schedule of broadcast. My zip is 02568
By Lynne Bruno

Bill: Thank you so much for featuring my native city of Lima. A friend told me about your program on PBS, but I don't have the schedule for "A Moment of Luxury". I would appreciate some feedback so I can look forward to watching it. Lima is truly an incredible city where you will enjoy many moments of luxury...shopping for exquisite clothing in alpaca and lovely gold jewelry, dining on world-class cuisine or being welcomed and pampered by smiley waiters, even in the simplest of restaurants.

Hi, Just watched your show for the first time, "Gilded Age", and I am hooked. I would like to become an event decorator one day, so the segments about table decoration gave me more great ideas if I ever reach my goal! Great show! Looking forward to future episodes....
By Leanette Horne

You can just see the loving person Bill Stubbs is, he simply radiates a gracious soul. I was trying to find the area this website that showed the Wedding Dress his daughter eventually chose but could not? Please advise where to look! Thank you for a great show.

I want to thank you for all of your shows. I really like a couple of shows. Your show here number 110 about Palm Beach, Florida. I think that was lovely. And show number 104 about your visit to San Miguel. That was nice. Please continue to educated us about the different and beautiful styles of luxury. And congratulations on your daughter's wedding. Once again, thank for your shows. I look forward to you traveling and educating us more.
By Lee Mays

I became an avid fan after the first show, but regretably our local PBS stations are spending so very much time raising money I've only seen one show of season two! Are you on NC PBS stations, if so I'll try to get our local cable channel to carry NCETV so I can again watch, keep up the great work!

I salute you for your creativity in producing a very entertaining show without the use of violence, four- letter words, or sex. Your program today (Thursday, March 25) provided a segment featuring a property located in West Cornwall, CT. During that segment a solo guitar played background music. Would you please send me the names of the piece and the performer who was playing it. Thank you very much.

I'm looking for 'the dress'. Which one did she choose?
By Barbara

My 15 year old saw the title of this show & instantly thought that it was hoity-toity and completely unrelated to our meager lifestyle. How wonderful that she soon realized (as I had earlier) that Bill's show is about finding luxury in every day things, not just a garden sculpture or fountain but an embroidered napkin, a fork handle, the drape of a curtain, the shape of a building or a piece of cheese on a crust of bread (something seen on even the poorest tables). I wasn’t surprised when my dau

I love the TV program, Aug. 3, on Edith Wharton. Is there a place that shows the table decoration with a rose centerpiece over a round mirror? Also is her book ""Decoration of Houses" availabel please. Thank you, Elva

All class and classic! Forget the design on a dime. Give me real design to treasure a life time.
By Rebecca B

LOVE your program. Hopefully, you will produce many more! In the latest program I saw, you visited a young man in NY who had created what you referred to as a "jewel box" of a room. Rather than installing crown moldings, he used paint to create the effect of moldings. I would like to see a photo of the room to study it, OR, if you can tell me when that program will air again in my area, I will record it. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

I watched the show on Bill's trip to the Edith Wharton home. Truly a hidden gem. I traveled there in October and truly loved the expeirence of her home and her gardens. I recommend this adventure but make sure you go in the spring and summer. It was rather cold on the day that I went, but it was well worth the cold weather to view this lovely home and learn all about Edith Wharton. by Joan Reichstein

How can I order or where do I go to watch your episode on Lima Peru. I am from Lima and have heard what a lovely and fair report you did on Lima. I would like to share it with my Peruvian friends here in USA and keep it for myself as this is (from what I hear) the very first time my beautiful Lima is done justice and featured. Peru is so much more than Cuzco or another Incan or archeological site.
