Have you ever dreamed of living the luxurious life of Valentino and his business partner and friend Giancarlo Giammetti? Well, now you can since they are selling their lavish summer home, Villa La Vagnola, in Tuscany for €12 million or $13,297,872 USD. The duo bought the property in 1986 and previously listed for sale in […]

I’ve run out of many of my beauty products in the last two weeks. Good thing for me that the Dermstore is offering 25% off most products during their annual anniversary sale with the code CELEBRATE until August 25, 2019. It’s the perfect time to stock up on all my favorites as well as try […]

Summertime Blues 2019

08 . 19 . 19

I posted a Summertimes Blues post last August and I liked it so much I decided to repost it again this year. I made a few tweaks so it’s not exactly the same. I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer before it’s back to school and reality time. Interior design by SJB Nine […]

If you’re one of the millions of follows of Gal Meets Glam, you’ve probably seen glimpses of the Charleston home of founder Julia Engel and her husband Thomas Berolzheimer. Now you can see the entire house that was renovated by architect Beau Clowney and decorated by interior design Olivia Brock of Torrance Mitchell Design in Southern Living. […]

If you are anywhere in Italy from now until 2021, make sure you plan a visit to the Palazzo Grimani in Venice. It re-opened this summer with the spectacular Domus Grimani 1594 – 2019 exhibition after major restoration work which is the result of several architectural interventions carried out in the sixteenth century by Giovanni […]

Sale Finds for Fall

08 . 14 . 19

Sale season has come to an end on Net-a-Porter but luckily there are still some wonderful pieces to be found at other retailers. I’ve put together some of my favorites sale selections that are perfect for transitioning to fall like the double-breasted wool trench coat above that is half off. As you know, I’m a […]

I ordered the September 2019 issue of Vogue from Amazon last week and was rewarded with a feature of Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo’s house in Southampton, New York. Well, it’s not actually the whole house. The gardens designed by Miranda Brooks, which were probably photographed at their height last summer, take center stage […]

The days are getting shorter and the light is getting lower. That means I’m ready to shift my colorful summer wardrobe into neutral. That means an excuse for a color compilation post. Enjoy. Atelier Vime Alighieri fractured memory earrings on @monicaainley Similar swimsuit available here and here and here and here. Crocheted cotton-blend tote Via […]

Now that we’re in the dog days of summer, that means many people will be taking advantage of the generosity of their friends with weekend houses. If you wanted to be invited back, you can’t arrive empty handed so I’ve put together some chic options that will have you declared the best house guest. As […]

Aerin Lauder in Paris

08 . 07 . 19

This week has been a little crazy. As soon as I returned from Nantucket, I jumped into styling my friend’s apartment for a photoshoot today. In the midst of all my running around, I did manage to pick up a few of the September magazines including the new Elle Decor with Aerin Lauder in Paris […]

I just returned from Nantucket and while I get resettled, I’m revisiting the New South Wales, Australia country home of interior designer Cameron Kimber. It’s one of my all time favorite homes that I could easily move into without changing a thing. I’ve found more photos on Instagram since it was first published in House […]

Too Kule for School

07 . 31 . 19

I had the pleasure of stopping by the Kule showroom yesterday which was perfect timing before my trip to Nantucket. Kule was founded by Nikki Kule in 2011 with the foundation of stripes with an American sensibility mixed with European style to create a “Preppy Luxe” aesthetic. The Kule collection is so much more than […]

Paolo Moschino Chic

07 . 29 . 19

If I had to choose another interior designer to decorate for me, Paolo Moschino would be on the short list. He learned his trade under Nicky Haslam and even bought the Nicholas Haslam brand in 1995 which makes this a little confusing since Nicky Haslam is still decorating but under the NH Design moniker. But […]

What a week. It started out with torrential rain and flash flooding in New York and it’s ending with record breaking temperatures of over 100 degrees in Europe. Climate change is real and it’s one of the reasons I like traveling to cooler locals each summer. Next Thursday, I’m headed to Nantucket for Nantucket for […]

Sparrows Weave

07 . 25 . 19

One of my friends asked about a wicker bag I posted earlier this summer. Unfortunately, that specific bag sold out but the brand, Sparrows Weave, has the same style available in burgundy, navy, and black embossed croc leather that are just as chic and other styles that could be worn well into autumn. I also […]

I’m not sure when or if I’ll make it out east to tour the Hamptons Designer Showhouse so I was very happy that Alessandra Branca was kind enough to share these exclusive photos of her chic room. The room and color story of blue and coral mixed with natural textures was inspired by Hamptons beach […]

I think the best part of the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale are the beauty buys. You can try new products and stock up on your favorites at great prices. I’ve put together some of my favorites and new finds to get you started but if you don’t like any of these, Net-a-Porter is offering 15% […]

When someone moves to Brooklyn because they need more room for a growing family, I immediately think of the Sex and the City episode where Miranda and Steve do just that. I don’t think their house looked anything like the chic Cobble Hill brownstone that Vogue alum and Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Durrett lives in with […]

Since I focused mostly on the Grand Hotel in my post last week, I wanted to also highlight the beauty of Mackinac Island, Michigan and give a little more travel related advice. The best time to visit Mackinac Island is from Memorial Day weekend to about mid-September. While the Grand Hotel stays open until the […]

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone. I usually start with a post about all the great home accessories and decor that are on sale but this year there aren’t that many. It’s such a shame since there were so many amazing home decor products and appliances on sale last year. So I […]
