i'm sara gore, and this is "open house." this week, we visit a mediterranean-style home in the heart of beverly hills, and a contemporary home with views of the pacific ocean. plus we are taking you inside a home inspired by the "sex and the city" movies. but first, she perfected the mid-century modern fashions we all loved on "mad men." now, acclaimed costume designer janie bryant takes us on a tour of her stylish home. people always ask me, does my costume design influence my interior design? and i can say that it does, in the way that i love to use pieces from different eras and different decades. you're watching "open house." right now, i'm inside a magnificent prewar condo building in manhattan. this home takes up the entire 11th floor
