Winter Garden

It feels like there have been so many auctions of exquisite collections in the last few years. It makes me feel sad to see them be broken up but hopefully the furniture and objects end up going to good homes. Susan Gutfreund sold her Henri Samuel decorated duplex apartment at 843 Fifth Avenue last year […]

While many of you are losing your minds on trashy Bridgerton, I’ve moved on to Lupin on Netflix. Lupin is a very original take on the famous French literary character Arsène Lupin starring Omar Sy as the charming Assane Diop who sets out to avenge his father for an injustice that happened 25 years earlier […]

The third Monday in January is always designated as Blue Monday. It’s a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for the gifts are due. It’s even harder this year with the pandemic and the recent insurrection. I’ve seen a lot of people post in the […]

The End of an Era

My favorite living room is no more. Kate Rheinstein Brodsky and family moved recently so I thought a last look at their apartment was in order. Thanks to the real estate listing, we can now understand the layout with the floorplan and view a few more rooms. I can’t wait until we see their new […]

I’ve been struggling with posts lately since I can’t travel and there are only a few places I can visit in New York. It’s hard to keep going when inspiration is in short supply, especially for design posts. So I’ve decided to go through my camera roll and try to post some historic houses from […]

My Rembrandt

After turning my brain to mush watching Bridgerton and too many Hallmark movies, I was excited to watch the documentary, My Rembrandt, this week. Most people think of the Old Masters as a very boring group but this documentary proves that Rembrandt paintings come with intriguing stories and sometimes controversy for those who own them. […]

Celine Spring 2021

I hated the Celine Spring 2021 runway styling but luckily, Hedi Slimane redeemed himself with the Celine Spring 2021 campaign photos. I can’t wait to wear these looks when the weather warms up and model Rianne Van Rompaey has me seriously contemplating letting my hair grow out longer. The spring can’t come soon enough for […]

I always like to organize my apartment before the New Year begins and I started with my closet in November. Housing Works came to pick up three bags of clothing, boxes of books, and some home décor and accessories. It always feels good to donate and especially when there are many people in need now. One thing […]

After I completed my first Prolon Fast Mimicking Diet in August, I was able to cut my sugar consumption and cravings for six weeks. It was an amazing elimination diet and I realized that dairy was causing terrible inflammation so I was able to cut it out of my diet too. I lost and kept off […]

I’ve had a few people ask for a post of what I bought myself recently and I finally had time to put it together. Some things were Christmas presents to myself and others were items I picked up and ordered in the last few months. While upstate visiting The Mayflower Inn, I bought this Houdini […]

“Whether you consider it a fresh start or a clean slate, there is nothing better than the beginning of January to plan out what you want to do in the coming year. I personally love a new blank calendar just brimming with possibilities. I like to plan out each month which helps me plan out […]

My traditional New Year’s Eve post didn’t seem appropriate this year so I decided to replace it with something else inspiring. I spend New Year’s Eve in Stockholm 15 years ago when it was covered in a blanket of snow and sundown began at 2:00pm. I’ve always wanted to go back when in the summer […]
