April showers are upon us in New York and that means trench coat weather. I still haven’t found the perfect replacement for my beloved Gryphon trench that finally had to be retired so I’m hoping one of these options might be perfect for me. But if you need a new trench, hopefully one of these […]

The Dunrobin Attic Sale is scheduled for 20 April 2021 at Bonhams in Edinburgh and will include more than 450 lots of paintings, portraits and historic photographs, picture frames, marble sculptures, crested dinner services, and an array of treasures […]

Spring has sprung and Mother’s Day will be here before we know it. So will lazy beach days and warm summer nights. Fortunately, my friend Heidi Wynne has a line of luxurious, lightweight cashmere, and chic straw hats and bags to prepare us for warmer weather. Her collection has wonderful options for spring wardrobe additions […]

Carlos David Studio

04 . 08 . 21

My dear friend David Lawrence and I worked at the same design firm but not at the same time. We met almost 15 years ago after his Hamptons project was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful and I reposted it on the blog. The owner of that house, Nancy McCormick, also owns the […]

It’s finally warm enough to wear dresses in New York and I could not be more excited. I already turned over my closet and realized that most of my dresses are either blue, blue striped, or black so it’s time to add a little more life into my wardrobe for this spring and summer. My […]

Winter chill has returned to New York but it looks like Easter will be warm at least. A lot of great things popping up this April besides tulips and daffodils and I’ve got them covered today. Since all my friends and I have been vaccinated, talk has turned to travel and where we want to […]

Last March seems to drag on forever but his March flew by and I can’t believe it’s April. I’m not really complaining though since it’s my birthday month and Central Park is finally starting to bloom. I plan to add a little color to my wardrobe with my favorite spring shades of lilac and lavender. […]

It’s finally warmed up and I’m ready to lighten up my wardrobe and my apartment for spring, I’ve put together the chicest bags, furniture, and accessories in wicker, raffia, and straw to change up your outfits and interiors. I bought this Celine Medium Triomphe Basket Bag last year right before quarantine. It was my birthday […]

Spring has definitely sprung in New York but we’re still waiting for everything to bloom. (The photo above is from a few years ago.) It really feels almost back to normal though with the amount of people out and about thanks to the vaccine. But it’s going to rain all day tomorrow so if you […]

Easter Gift Guide 2021

03 . 25 . 21

I feel like Easter is going to be big holiday this year due to the vaccines. Family members will finally be able to gather and celebrations will be about more than just Easter. I’ve put some gift and decor ideas together for the entire to make it extra special this year. Skip the mess and […]

I’ve written about my Instagram friend Remy Renzullo before and he’s a name you will no doubt be seeing much more of in the future. His New York apartment, which he’s since moved out of, was featured in Architectural Digest last year and his London cottage has recently been published in House and Garden UK. […]

I had my hair highlighted for the first time in five months yesterday so I wanted to buy a new Christophe Robin deep conditioner to keep it from getting dry. That’s when I discovered that the SkinStore is having an amazing Anniversary Sale with up to 50% off select best selling brands until March 23, […]

I didn’t get a green post together this week so it was perfect that this apartment with its green entry gallery was posted on Architectural Digest today. The Upper East Side home belongs to architect Gil Schafer and his wife interior designer Courtnay Daniels and her two children from her previous marriage. It’s as classic […]

It feels like we’ve lost so many wonderful collectors in the last few years. The art and personal treasures from the Paris apartment of artist Pierre Le Tan are up for auction at Sotheby’s this Tuesday and Wednesday. Included in the sale are furniture including the lovely early Louis XV amaranth and varnished bronze commode […]

It was over 70 degrees yesterday but we might get snow flurries next week so dressing in March and even April can be a challenge. This year, I’m inspired by Sofia Coppola who has the perfect wardrobe for unpredictable weather. Her closet staples include navy sweaters, black pants, blue shirts, navy coats, striped tops, ballet […]

Since not many people are going into the office right now, there is no reason to carry a giant tote bag filled with a laptop, gym clothes, and everything else under the sun. Now crossbody bags are the perfect size to hold just what you need for a walk or a trip to the store. […]

I’m always in awe of women who started their own companies when most women weren’t even working outside of the home. Loretta Caponi earned how to embroider at the age of nine and opened her boutique in Florence in 1967. Her signature nightgowns made of cotton, linen, and silk and later table linens and bedding […]

It’s freezing in New York right now but warm weather so I look forward to spending some time at home reading and watching movies. These are some things to do, watch, buy, and enjoy this weekend no matter what the weather is where you live. I had the pleasure of attending the press preview for […]

I wasn’t able to walk as much as I would have liked this winter due to all the snow. Warmer weather is on the way next week and I can’t wait to take a walk every day and I’ve got lots of new sneakers to wear on them. I have bought so many pairs, someone […]

My Instagram friend Julien Devergnies @_percaline_ recently posted that his apartment in Brussels, Belgium that he shares with his partner Nicolas Woit was published in The World of Interiors in July 2018. I’m not sure what I was doing then but I completely missed it. I love following Julien because we have a similar aesthetic […]
