Summer officially started last Friday and now we’re bracing for a heat wave in New York this week. This makes it the perfect time to wear white dresses. I only have one in my closet right now so I’m searching for some new options. If you are as well, I’ve pulled together some of my […]

Until then, I am introducing you to the chic Chester, Nova Scotia cottage belonging to my dear friends Philip Mitchell and Mark Narsansky that is the cover feature of the new July/August 2019 issue of Veranda. I’ve […]

Glover House

Another house I love on Main Street in Sag Harbor is just coming up for sale. The Glover House was built by master craftsman Benjamin Glover in 1810 in the classic tradition and flair of a true Captain’s house. In 1850, the neighboring carriage house was combined with the house for Glover’s daughter to live […]

As soon as I saw the new Frances Valentine Pre-Fall 2019 Lookbook, I immediately recognized that it was photographed at the Hannibal French House in Sag Harbor. I would have recognized it regardless since it has a very distinct Italianate exterior but I also just walked by it every single day last week. When I […]

One of the highlights of my trip to Sag Harbor was getting to see my friend Chris Kann‘s charming Sag Harbor cottage. I’ve seen photo on Instagram but it’s even better in person. I arrived around 4:00pm on Friday and the light was so beautiful. We drank rosé in the yard and watched the cardinals […]

I’m in Sag Harbor this week and I’ve already done a little shopping. It was warmer than expected when I arrived so I bought this white shirt and yesterday I finally succumbed to the Birkenstock trend with this white pair from the Goop pop up shop. Since it’s raining here today and I am delaying […]

No one does beach and nautical chic like photographer Matt Albiani and Ron Brand. Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more. Now you can experience their aesthetic in a summer rental […]

I used to visit Maine in the summer when I first moved to New York but I’m well overdue for a trip now. It’s a popular destination for those looking for relief from the heat in beautiful natural surroundings so it’s no wonder that Gil Schafer fell in love with the Pine Tree State growing […]

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 […]

Le Jardinier

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. The light and airy space is filled with shades of cream and green that looks like a breath of […]

Palazzo Nasciaro

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 […]
