I’m going to be honest, I don’t love Miami but I’ll take warm weather where ever I can get it in in the middle of winter. I’m not into the nightclub scene though so I try to find outings that appeal to my more refined aesthetics which is why I love Vizcaya Museum and Gardens […]

It looks like the weather is finally going to warm up this week. I think we can all use a little spring right now but after seeing the new Weekend Max Mara Nantucket collection, I want to jump directly to summer. The collection modeled by Hailey Baldwin Bieber is a collaboration with interior designer Anthony Baratta […]

I can’t imagine a better design education than growing up in Venice and working for Jacques Garcia in Paris. Interior designer Alvise Orsini did just that and took this experience to his own firm based in London. It’s no surprise that his apartment in London is elegant sophisticated. It was in desperate need of renovation when […]

Spring is not only a good time to refresh your closet but also your walls. I’ve been rearranging my art and adding new pieces from Artfully Walls in new color schemes. Artfully Walls is a chic, contemporary, and affordable way to shop for art prints from a carefully curated group of artists from around the […]

Le Chardenoux

I don’t think I’ve ever been to the 11th arrondissement in Paris but after seeing photos of Le Chardenoux, I wonder why. The restaurant owned by chef Cyril Lignac has reopened after a renovation by Martin Brudnizski designed with charm and heritage in mind giving the traditional interiors a modern twist. The decorative foliated ceiling and marble […]

We’re expecting 5-8 inches of snow Sunday night into Monday morning but that is not stopping me from buying spring clothes. Luckily, we can shop in the comfort of our own homes instead of going outside in bad weather and Sézane is one of my favorite places to shop online. I’m always amazed that my […]

70s Chic at Celine

Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in. The minute I get myself all worked up for spring, I see the new Celine collection for fall 2019 and all I want is winter clothes. I was definitely not happy when LVMH decided to replace Phoebe Philo with Hedi Slimane and neither […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m loving lavender right now. It feels like the breath of fresh air we need to start the month of March. I realized that the pinker shade is more lilac than lavender so I’ve put together some of my favorites in both shades. If none of these strike your […]

As you know, I travel a lot. I’ve stayed in every conceivable type of hotel from tiny boutiques to five star resorts. I’ve experienced the best and the worst that the hotel industry could dream up. I’ve been known to move furniture and obsess over design details that I wish I could change. I can […]

It’s not quite warm enough for spring clothes in New York yet but the weather is sure to be gorgeous in Charleston when I travel down south for my birthday in April. Funny enough, the new Halsbrook catalog was also photographed in Charleston. The great patterns and colors of their spring fashions look perfectly at […]
