I find Pinterest incredibly frustrating lately. Just because I save one photo of a car doesn’t mean that I want to see a million photos of cars for the next week. I never even see pins from anyone I follow anymore so I have to go to their profile to see if they’ve posted anything.  […]

London based interior designer Virginia Howard has a project featured in the new April 2019 issue of House & Garden which led me to look for more of her work. I found her own London flat that also happened to be included in an old issue of House & Garden magazine. I’ve said it before […]

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 […]

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 […]

I love seeing my favorite people on Instagram have their homes featured in a magazine. I posted about Jack Laver Brister two years ago in my post Instagram Chic: Trad Chap and now his home in Frome, Somerset in England that he shares with his partner Richard Nares can be seen in House & Garden. It’s the […]

My Visit to Monticello

10 . 29 . 18

When I invited to Charlottesville at the end of September, it seemed serendipitous since I had already been looking into trips to Virginia to tour Monticello, the home of statesman Thomas Jefferson. I added a few days onto the trip and made plans to visit with interior designer Andrew Brown. He wasn’t going to arrive […]

I’ve never been to New Orleans so I’ve been thinking of planning a trip this winter. Now that the Hotel Peter and Paul has just opened, I have even more motivation to visit The Big Easy. The hotel, restaurant, cafe, bar, library, and event space are located in an abandoned group of 19th-century buildings that […]

I posted this home in Charlottesville, Virginia belonging to Marina Rust and her family almost exactly one year ago. Now I’m headed to the area tomorrow for a 36 Hours in Charlottesville Wine Country trip after which I’m staying to explore the town and visit Monticello. I’ve been wanting to visit Thomas Jefferson’s home since I […]

I feel like it’s interior designer Michael S. Smith‘s world and we’re just living in it this month. A stunning apartment he designed with architect Oscar Shamamian of Ferguson & Shamamian in a Rosario Candela designed building on Park Avenue is featured on the cover and inside the new October 2018 issue of Architectural Digest. […]

I had never heard of interior designer Francois de Marigny before coming across this art filled duplex he designed for a divorced and his children in Paris on ArchitecturalDigest.com but now I want to see more. The home in Napoleon III building with a private garden hadn’t been touched in 50 years but luckily all of […]
