This year marks my 10th year covering the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. It’s always the highlight of the spring social season and I was just as excited to tour the house this year as I was in 2007. I ran into Honorary Chair Bunny Williams on my way out and she was just as excited […]

More is More

The incessant rain lately has been great for spring cleaning and organizing. As I was throwing out magazines, I came across the home of retired Hyatt executive John Mayberry in San Francisco in House Beautiful. He downsized from a 4,000 square-foot house in Georgia to this 900 square-foot rental apartment and still managed to hang his entire art […]

Longtime readers will remember my love of dresses. They are an easy item to throw on for a meeting or a casual weekend event. Add a different belt, shoes and bag and you have a totally different look too. That’s why I ordered this Everlane Linen  Shirtdress the minute it launched online. I can already […]

It always brings together the best new films and I’m grateful that Lincoln Motor Company, who is a sponsor of the film festival, generously offers me passes each year.

Chic Sag Harbor Rental

In most of America,  $175,000 would buy you an entire house. In the Hamptons, it will only get you a one month rental in this house in Sag Harbor Village for August only via Corcoran. While most of us can’t afford that price tag, we can peek into the home remodeled by David Kleinberg for a British politician […]

The weather in New York has been vacillating between hot and cold. That hasn’t stopped me from buying four new pairs sandals for spring and summer. In my defense, they were all 40-50% off and everyone knows you have to buy what you need before you need it or else it will be sold out. […]

On Monday, I had the pleasure of visiting Madeline Weinrib‘s chic showroom to see her new cotton carpets, outdoor fabrics, and bags. The new floral cotton weave Camilla carpets are a breath of fresh air this spring and a great departure from ubiquitous stripes. The flowers while inspired by Botticelli are a little bit fanciful and […]

I always stock up on my favorite creams and soap, Miel d’Angleterre. now instead of hopping a flight, I can just walk over to Bergdorf Goodman to replenish my supply. Founders Ramdane Touhami and Victoire de Taillac have […]

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. It was my birthday and I was dealing with a cold so I ended up taking the day off. Other than being sick, it was a great day filled with flowers, a facial, and great friends. I’ll be back later with a regular post. The secret of staying […]
