Perfect Panacea

05 . 12 . 20

It looks like things won’t open up in New York in time to allow me to make my annual June trip to Sag Harbor. I’m sad but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we won’t be able to travel for awhile. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through the East Hampton home of Kate Rheinstein […]

Bunny’s New Abode

12 . 09 . 19

Light is one of the reasons I’ve stayed in my apartment in New York so long and it’s one of the reasons that Bunny Williams moved to a new apartment on a higher floor in her same building. The apartment she shares with husband John Rosselli can be seen in the January 2020 issue of […]

I think most of us in the United States probably grew up with the reference point that walls can be painted any color but molding and trim should be white. It’s only been recently that I’ve started to notice designers mixing up this notion. I know other designers have done it but I was personally […]

Great houses seem to run in the Burch family. We all love every home owned by Tory Burch and now her ex-husband’s new house in France is featured in the new issue of Architectural Digest. Chris Burch bought the 17-century hôtel particulier in Senlis after seeing it with the owners of Creel and Gow. One […]

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. So I made a deep dive into the archives and spent all day Sunday outlining them. Some of her rooms have become iconic and she […]

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. I remember sitting next to him at a dinner at least 10 years ago and being unaware of what was in store for […]

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’m not sure how I started following French public relations executive and event planner Francoise Dumas on Instagram. It might have been from her interior decorator Pierre Passabon or his partner of Jacques Grange. Or maybe it was because she is based in Paris and I get glimpses of my favorite city. Regardless of the […]

It’s interesting how I managed to get a blog post up every day I was in Miami but since I’ve been back I haven’t been able to get it together. I’ve been feeling exhausted so if you have any tips on things to do besides drink water which I’ve been doing, please let me know […]

Jet Setting Nina Flohr

One day this past April, I was getting ready to attend the press preview for the Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection auction at Christie’s. It was raining and I knew I would run into people I knew there and the Kips Bay Decorator Show House press preview on the same day so I wanted to […]

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.
