Slim Chic

Anyone who’s obsessed with chic people is keenly aware of photographer Slim Aarons. He takes the most delicious photographs and his vintage books and photographs are highly collectible. He made a career out of what he called “photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” And boy did he ever. The above photo of […]

Circular Chic

The September issue of H&G is out today but I thought I would post a few more images from the August issue. I think the vintage hubs turned into modern sculpture by Tom Filicia in this Hamptons home he designed are so cool and original. I love the idea of found objects as art. I’m […]

Educated by Rita

I’ve been an admirer of Rita Konig since I first saw her apartment in Bright Young Things London and her cute little book Domestic Bliss but recently it seems like she’s everywhere! She has her blog, Girl About Town, on Domino and now you can tour her apartment in New York on their website as […]

Closet Confidential

So what’s a girl to do on a rainy Sunday in the city when her plans to go to the beach for the weekend have been cancelled? I decided some serious closet cleaning was in order. This is the time of year when the fall clothes are starting to arrive in stores and I get […]

Mix it up!

I’m not sure which is worse, my obsession with House and Garden or my obsession with Domino. I think Domino edges out H and G because they have more photo galleries on their website. These photos are from their editor Tori Mellott’s apartment and I love what she’s done with a bland little studio and […]

I spent this past weekend in Southampton and the old adage “red sky at night, sailor’s delight” really is true. We saw the most amazing sunset Saturday night and on Sunday the weather was just gorgeous!I need to work harder so I can afford a beach house on Meadow Lane with a view this spectacular! […]

Chic Getaway

It’s almost the weekend which makes me think about getting away. I’m going to the Hamptons this weekend but one of my favorite places for peace and quiet is Maine, where many chic New Yorkers also go to getaway. One of those chicettes is Patricia Herrera Lansing and her family. I love how the outside […]

White Done Right

I dream of marrying an architect like Derek Sanders. An amazingly talented architect who not only creates beautiful spaces but also co-owns one the chicest restaurants in NYC, La Esquina. Too bad he already has the perfect wife in Michelle Kessler Sanders, the newest head Miu Miu USA. Sooo not fair! The Sanders loft reminds […]

Absolutely Beautiful

I’m a sucker for anything blue and orange and over at Absolutely Beautiful Things today, Anna has posted photos of a bedroom she has just completed in St. Lucia, Australia. I love this look so much that I think I might be inspired to wallpaper my bedroom too!

Secret Chic

I recently stumbled upon this great article, The Secret Source is Out, in the New York Times online edition, about how regular people are now able to access great design resources that were once only available to the trade. One new “decorator” profiled was Cheryl Guibone from Connecticut who decorated her entire house herself and […]

Chic Swirls

Samantha Boardman Rosen and Aby Rosen’s apartment is another example of the very chic Paul Smith Swirl carpet and Andy Warhol silk screens that seem to be popping up everywhere. I mean, I knew Andy’s factory was prolific but I didn’t realize he was that prolific! P.S. I know this isn’t the best photo because […]

Loft Living

Everyone at work knows how much I love Domino, so I was excited to see editor Deborah Needleman’s loft profiled in New York Magazine this past spring. The funny thing was that I knew I had seen her bedroom somewhere else and I was right! They used it in a photo spread in the magazine […]
