I look forward to seeing the fashion presentation from Adam Lippes each season since he shows at home with beautiful flower arrangements from Putnam and Putnam. There is nothing I love more than the intersection of fashion and interiors his Fall/Winter 2019 collection was inspired by rich rooms of the interior design firm Studio Peregalli. […]

I feel like the unexpected warm weather has helped me get my mojo back. I’ve been busier than usual and taking in everything New York has to offer that I’m sharing with you. If you happen to go to the Ralph Lauren ladies mansion for the café this weekend, make sure you go upstairs to […]

Today was one of the best and busiest days I’ve ever had in New York. It started off with meeting my LA friend Louise Roe at the Ralph Lauren ladies mansion to experience Ralph’s Café and the Spring 2019 collection. You may remember that Ralph’s Coffee is now open at the store but they turned […]

I’ve always known that if I ever need to hire an architect, Gil Schafer would be at the top of the list. I love traditional architecture and his projects always look perfect without looking too new so it’s no wonder his new office has that same feeling. You can read all about it on ArchitecturalDigest.com. […]

It’s not spring yet but it feels like it in New York. What a difference a week makes. The lovely weather is making me think about how to transition to warmer temperatures and Kyle Richards gave me a lot of inspiration when she appeared on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning. The dusty pink […]

It was raining when I visited the Kips Bay Show House in Palm Beach and Peter Dunham‘s room looked like the perfect place for rainy day activities. The Los Angeles based designer upholstered the walls in his Collage fabric from Peter Dunham Textiles, upholstered the sofa in his Souk fabric, and grounded the room with […]

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Broshahan is the new face of Frances Valentine, the line created by her late aunt Kate Spade. The synergy couldn’t be more perfect. Rachel not only looks like her aunt but the fashions and accessories remind me of pieces that Mrs. Maisel would wear around New York and the […]

I refuse to post anything more winter related. I’m over it and I’m sure most of the country feels the same way. So let’s look at the very flattering peachy pink colored bedroom suite designed by Danielle Rollins for the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach. She said she was inspired by the Florida sunset […]

Resort Ready 2019

01 . 30 . 19

Has the Polar Vortex prompted you to book a tropical getaway yet?  If you need a little more motivation, I’ve put together the perfect resort wardrobe to pack for your trip whether you’re headed to Hawaii, Mexico, or the Caribbean. Miami and Palm Beach weren’t that warm when I was down there so I might […]

I can’t think of a better time to post the most old school Florida inspired room from the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach than when most of the country is experiencing the coldest weather in history. Perhaps the bright and sunny room by interior designer Meg Braff will be the just catalyst you need […]

If interior designer Billy Ceglia can make a motley crew of assorted spaces in the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach look good, imagine what he can do in a whole house. He was assigned the downstairs back hallway, a bathroom that is the public restroom for the house, a small mudroom, the back staircase, a […]

Pretty in Palm Beach

01 . 24 . 19

I’m headed back down to Miami and Palm Beach on Friday. When I was there for Art Basel in December with La Prairie, my friend mentioned a Ferrari show, Cavallino Classic, in Palm Beach that he wanted to attend in January. It happened to fall at the same time as the Kips Bay Decorator Show […]

Valentine’s Day is three weeks away. Are you ready? If not, I’ve put together some fun gift and outfit ideas for you. I usually hate this Hallmark holiday but I’m trying to embrace it this year. I also wish I was in London so I could visit the new Elan Cafe in Knightsbridge that’s an […]

For Sale in Suffolk

01 . 22 . 19

I posted about the English Country Home of Jeremy Langmead and Simon Rayner almost four years ago. Since then, Jeremy moved from Christie’s to Mr. Porter and the duo moved into another home in Suffolk with interior design by Susan Deliss which is now for sale because they have a new home project in the […]

Each January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for presents are due. The weather in New York has a windchill below zero but it’s also a bank holiday so at least most people don’t have […]

I’ve touched on some winter skincare products recently but since the weather has turned very frigid recently, I thought a full winter skincare post was in order. The colder temperatures, winds, lack of humidity, hot interiors, and travel all wreck havoc on the skin in the winter. I’m touching on my favorite procedures and products […]

People keep declaring that no one wants to buy brown furniture these days. I always say,’Great! More for me!’ The real problem is that younger folks don’t realize that you can mix antiques and Old Master paintings with modern pieces and motorcycles. Such is the case in the uptown duplex apartment of art advisor Will […]

Over four years ago, I wrote about Catherine Deneuve’s house in Normandy with grounds designed by landscape architect Jacques Wirtz was for sale. She took it off the market or it didn’t find a buyer until recently. Chateau de Primard was where she kept her haute couture collection of fashions made for her by fashion […]

I’m not sure how I started following French public relations executive and event planner Francoise Dumas on Instagram. It might have been from her interior decorator Pierre Passabon or his partner of Jacques Grange. Or maybe it was because she is based in Paris and I get glimpses of my favorite city. Regardless of the […]

Hope your New Year is going well. I’ve spent the last week and a half trying to get back on track while also checking out art exhibitions and visiting new places in my spare time. I thought I’d share them in case you want to explore the city but I’ve included a few other options […]
