I didn’t get a green post together this week so it was perfect that this apartment with its green entry gallery was posted on Architectural Digest today. The Upper East Side home belongs to architect Gil Schafer and his wife interior designer Courtnay Daniels and her two children from her previous marriage. It’s as classic […]

My Instagram friend Julien Devergnies @_percaline_ recently posted that his apartment in Brussels, Belgium that he shares with his partner Nicolas Woit was published in The World of Interiors in July 2018. I’m not sure what I was doing then but I completely missed it. I love following Julien because we have a similar aesthetic […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think the mark of a great designer is someone who can make me like a design style that is not my personal favorite. Interior designer Martin Brûlé has created the chicest Art Deco abode in a building that did not have many redeeming interior architectural […]

One of the biggest questions after when will this end is when can we travel again. I don’t think we’ll be able to travel Europe again until late fall or possibly even next year but when we can, you may want to put Venice at the top of your must visit list. There you can […]

Since no one can leave their homes, magazines have had to get creative. Wendy Goodman, the design editor of New York magazine, asked her sister Tonne Goodman to submit a few photos of her West Village duplex for The Cut. I’ve mixed her photos from the Vogue profile of it from September 2001. Tonne found […]

My Instagram friend Remy Renzullo is definitely an old soul with a fun personality. Anyone who hasn’t met him might think he was a middle aged decorator instead of twenty-something interior designer. I think that’s what makes him so special. He’s extremely knowledgeable about historic design and antiques but doesn’t take it all so seriously. […]

There is nothing that upsets me more than when someone buys an iconic or historic house and guts it, thus ruining what made it special. That’s why I was so astonished and happy to see that designer Francis Sultana kept the drawing room in the apartment that belonged to Fleur Cowles a similar beautiful shade […]

Art historian and biographer Sir John Richardson passed away in March of this year at the age of 95 leaving behind a legacy of wonderful books and beautifully designed homes. His Connecticut estate already sold and now his New York apartment and studio has just come on the market with Compass for $7,200,000. The 5,400 […]

Now that it looks like hot summer weather has finally abated, I feel like I can finally reorganize my closets. I love my apartment and my closets but if I had known I would stay in it as long as I have, I would have opened up the closet doors to the ceiling for better […]

One of the most highly anticipated events of the fall season in New York is the auction of The Collection of Lee Bouvier Radziwill at Christie’s on 17 October 2019. The sale “offers a glimpse into her fascinating life, spanning her years as a prominent socialite, princess, designer, and witness to a momentous era in […]

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 […]

Legendary costume jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane passed away almost a year ago and now art, antiques, and objects collected over his lifetime are up for auction at Christie’s Interiors: New York Visions sale on June 6, 2018. Also included in the sale are The Collection of Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd, and Robert Couturier: Elements […]

Behind Closed Doors

09 . 12 . 17

I never tire of seeing photos of the New York apartment of Vogue International Editor at Large Hamish Bowles. The very colorful and traditional home designed by Studio Peregalli will be featured in a new book New York: Behind Closed Doors by Polly Devlin and photos by Annie Schlecter. “I was so delighted to have […]

After being mostly unplugged for a week, I’m trying to get caught up on news and current events. One thing that came to light last week was that Lee Radziwill‘s Paris apartment is for sale by Emilie Garcin. The three bedroom 6th floor apartment on Avenue Montaigne in the 8th arrondissement with a view of […]

My sweet friend Amy Stone just had her apartment featured on One Kings Lane this weekend. A few months ago, she moved from the West Village to a Pre-War apartment on the Upper East Side. The Studio at One Kings Lane helped her pull it together. While Amy is not new to New York, I […]

Gramercy Park Goodness

01 . 05 . 17

The new February 2017 issue of Architectural Digest is due on newsstands soon but until I get a copy, I’m enjoying their Web Exclusive Home Tours. The latest is the Gramercy Park pre-war apartment of interior designer Bennett Leifer that was a disaster when he found it. He transformed the one bedroom into a show […]

Grey Days

11 . 30 . 16

It seems like I’m not the only one who loves grey. Fashion designer Jason Wu named his diffusion line Jason Wu Grey and his new apartment in Chelesa is decorated with numerous shades of grey. The space designed by Studio Mellone is featured in the new issue of the WSJ.magazine and mixes the grey with numerous neutrals and textures. Grey has […]
