What a week! There seemed to be something off about this week which culminated in my website going down last night. It was due to the fact that all the domain renewal notices went to my Spam folder instead of my Inbox. This has definitely been a lesson to make sure I have important dates […]

The French are spoiled with restaurants designed by architect Joseph Dirand and now New York can experience his work while dining at Le Jardinier at 610 Lexington Avenue in one of developer Aby Rosen‘s newest building.

Palazzo Nasciaro

06 . 04 . 19

I came across an article about Palazzo Nasciaro on House & Garden today and was blown away by its beauty. It’s actually an old story from around 2016 when the property was for sale but it’s still inspiring. British millionaire author Paul Golding bought the 18th-century palazzo on the remote island of Malta around 10 […]

My navy jacket from Sézane is sold out but there are other fabric options available. Another great option is this navy Blazé Milano Spirit herringbone double-breasted silk blazer.

If you’ve ever driven through East Hampton, then you’ve probably seen this beautiful white house that sits at the intersection of Main Street and Woods Lane.

As I mentioned yesterday, Mezzaore Hotel and Thermal Spa is part of the Pellicano Group of hotels. The iconic coral exteriors and crenellated watchtower built high up on the cliff in the 16th and 17th centuries has amazing views that the group could not resist. The family acquired the Ischia property six months ago and […]

Marie-Louise Sciò is CEO of her family’s legendary Pellicano Group which includes Hotel Il Pellicano, La Posta Vecchio, and Mezzatore Hotel.

Every time I look at real estate listings, I always wish I could go in and take better and more detailed photos. I mentioned to my friend Chris Kann that if he ever had any listings he thought I would like that I would love to tag along. My wish was granted a few weeks […]

Afterward, I walked to the David Zwirner gallery to see the Joan Mitchell show. It’s was insanely beautiful. I really need to […]

Many of us have been lamenting the passing of member of the elegant old guard recently such as Lee Radziwill, Marella Agnelli, and Jane Wrightsman. Sometimes it feels like there is no one to take up their mantle but luckily Lauren Santo Domingo is leading the charge of the next generation. Her taste is impeccable […]

I’ve been following Hanna Seabrook of Gadabout Creative on Instagram for years where I would see snippets of her houses so I was happy to see one of them featured in Southern Living. Hanna and her family had moved to Louisville, Kentucky for her husband’s job for a few years and this is their home […]

After my recent travels and countless events in NYC, I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend but that doesn’t mean I’ll be staying home. There are many new openings worth checking out.
