When I read in the new issue of Architectural Digest that Derek Blasberg moved to the Upper East Side, I was curious if he lived close to me. I’ve never seen him in the neighborhood but he travels so extensively that it wasn’t that surprising. A quick search not only revealed that he does live […]

I originally planned to just post Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment to show her interior design style but then I realized it wouldn’t tell the entire story of her design progression.

When legendary interior designer Mario Buatta died last year, His last project was just published in Architectural Digest so this seems like the perfect time to remember the cheeky and talented designer.

While we’re on the topic of Maine, I love this home designed by architect Les Cole and decorated by interior designer Suzanne Kasler. I haven’t been to Maine in about 15 years so I think it needs to be on my must visit for next summer. The state’s motto, “the way life should be” certainly […]
