Lodge Life

06 . 25 . 17

As someone who’s spent the last 20 years living near the Atlantic Ocean, I sometimes forget that there are other places people go each summer. How amazing is it that Nancy Hoguet and her brother spent their summers at a family hunting lodge in the Austria, wearing drindls and lederhosen no less?! I loved reading her […]

Out East

06 . 12 . 17

I don’t normally like a lot of pattern in homes but I am totally charmed by this chic cottage called Woody House in the Hamptons. On first look, it seems to be more collected than decorated and story in the new July issue of Architectural Digest confirms that the owners are avid travelers. Peter Marino who helped them […]

I was sad when it was announced that Peter Copping would no longer be designing for Oscar de la Renta. It would be no longer running into him in New York. But I was also happy because I knew it meant that he and his partner Rambert Rigaud could return to their lives in France […]

I follow both India Hicks and David Flint Wood on Instagram but I don’t remember either of them giving it away that they were building an English country house in Oxfordshire, England. Perhaps, it was because they were saving the surprise for the June 2017 issue of Architectural Digest in which it’s featured. They partnered […]

Uptown Meets Downtown

02 . 17 . 17

If you glanced quickly at this apartment featured on Architectural Digest, you might think it’s located on the Upper East Side of New York. Turns out, it is actually located in a brand new building in the West Village. Designer Alexander Doherty did a wonderful job adding wood moldings and traditional details that give the […]

Chaos and Creation

02 . 06 . 17

I’m having an amazing time in Mexico but I still can’t help thinking about planning another trip to Paris this spring. I was especially inspired after seeing the Paris home of the late Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani. Architectural Digest photographed the home shortly before her passing and her son, Francesco Carrozzini, encouraged them to publish […]

Chic in Connecticut

02 . 01 . 17

The new March 2017 issue of Architectural Digest is out and the cover feature on the Greenwich, Connecticut home of Dee and Tommy Hilfiger is beyond chic. The interior design by Martyn Lawrence Bullard mixes English country manor house with French hunting lodge. The antlers and stag statues actually remind me of Hubert de Givenchy‘s […]

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 […]

A Writer’s Retreat

11 . 11 . 16

I finished The Crown on Netflix in two days last weekend. I almost wish I hadn’t since it was so good but I guess I could rewatch it again while I wait for season two or another great series to debut. It was interesting to learn that the screenwriter Peter Morgan also wrote The Queen, […]

Blue Sunday

11 . 06 . 16

While the White House private quarters by Michael Smith in the December 2016 issue of Architectural Digest is getting all the press, it was the very chic Greenwich Village apartment of artist Jack Pierson that struck my fancy. In the article, Pierson said, “I decided that I wanted it to look like an apartment that […]

The Chicest Chateau

09 . 28 . 16

As you know, my dream is to buy and renovate a French chateau someday. Galerie Flore owner Flore de Brantes inherited her chateau from her father but that doesn’t mean there isn’t work to be done. As she tells Architectural Digest in their October 2016 issue, “With a château, there is always a project.” She and […]

Meant to Be

09 . 08 . 16

It’s fashion week in New York right now. I also know I’ve posted a lot about clothing and accessories lately so I’m going to try to make sure I balance my coverage with some great design posts to make everyone happy. The October issue of Architectural Digest came out this week and dare I say, […]

Amy Astley isn’t just shaking things up in Architectural Digest magazine but also online. This weekend they posted an Instagram exclusive of DJ and fashion designer Harley Viera Newton‘s downtown loft that she shares with her fiancé DJ Ross One and their two cats. The apartment is also home to Harley’s fashion line HVN with […]

The Style Issue

08 . 02 . 16

Former Teen Vogue editor in chief Amy Astley has recently taken the helm at Architectural Digest and her first issue hits newsstands today. The September 2016 issue is devoted to the fashion world and includes the chic homes of Marc Jacobs, Giovanna Battaglia, Amanda Brooks, and others. I, for one, am excited about Amy taking […]

Sick Day Substitute

10 . 16 . 12

Of all the scenarios I thought would play out at High Point Furniture Market, getting sick did not figure into the mix.  A nasty cold has completely felled me and ravaged my throat.  Until I can get it together, I’m leaving you with photos from the townhouse Jeffrey Bilhuber redesigned for Trey Laird and his […]

A Fashionable Venue

10 . 12 . 12

One of the shows I regret not attending during fashion week in New York was Barbara Tfank.  My friend Blue Carreon saw it and raved not only about the clothing but also the venue.  It was shown in an Upper East Side apartment of interior designer Michael Smith and was a perfect pairing.  You can […]

Chic in LA

08 . 24 . 12

After seeing so much of Daniel Romualdez’s interior design work, it was nice to see one of his own homes.  His Los Angeles abode is clean and bright with varying shades of whites and neutrals. It would be interesting to see how it differs from his New York home but I guess we’ll have to […]
