So many apartments in Paris have white walls but not this one. It is painted in seven shades of grey graduating from light to dark as you move back to the private spaces.

My friend Alice first introduced me to The White Company years ago but for some reason I never visited their stores in London. Now I don’t have to travel across the pond to experience their stylish and timeless products. Their new store on lower Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron district carries a myriad of candles […]

I love photographing classic cars for Instagram but I haven’t seen very many lately. Instead, I’ve been living vicariously through all the car Instagram accounts I follow. In honor of Father’s Day, I’ve put together some of my favorites. Although, I do know that a lot of women also love hot wheels. Bon weekend! Image […]

Last week, I had the pleasure of getting a tour of the new One Kings Lane pop up shop in Southampton from president Debbie Propst. The store is located at 11 Jobs Lane in what was the old Southampton library that has been empty for years. The large building gives OKL the opportunity to create rooms to […]
