I came across this beautiful bedroom on Pinterest and turns out it was designed by Cameron Kimber Design in Australia. It reminds me of something we might have seen in one of Bunny Mellon’s homes but it also feels fresh and modern. It also looks like the most comfortable cocoon like bedroom I’ve ever seen.  The […]

Halcyon House Hotel

07 . 06 . 15

I knew Australian interior designer Anna Spiro was working on something great via Instagram but I wasn’t exactly sure what until I saw another Instagram post from artist Wayne Pate. Turns out it was a hotel Halcyon House and restaurant Paper Daisy for which Wayne illustrated the menus. Halcyon House is located in Cabarita Beach, New South Wales, Australia and was […]

I don’t know William McLure but I love following his personal decorating projects on his Instagram and Pinterest accounts.  William works as an interior designer for architect Bill Ingram in Birmingham, Alabama but he’s always reworking his own spaces.  He moved into a new house and painted his bedroom floors white and the walls blue […]

Those of you who can’t make it to New York to shop Housing Works Design on a Dime are in luck.  Chance Co. founder Julia Leach has curated a sale full of blue and white delights for One Kings Lane. You could actually furnish an entire beach house with her picks and I’ve chosen a […]

The blue and white striped space that Miles Redd designed for Housing Works Design on a Dime makes me want to book a trip to Capri asap. It reminds me of the things I love about the JK Place Hotel. Since I can’t book a trip right now, maybe I’ll make due with a fern […]

Bunny’s Bedroom

11 . 10 . 14

Most of the articles surround the sale of Bunny Mellon’s estate at Sotheby’s mention her relationship with Hubert de Givenchy.  He was not only her go to designer but also a good friend.  So much so that he had a bedroom in his Cap Ferrat home dubbed the Bunny guest room, above. Clos de Fiorentina has […]

Maisons de Vacances

08 . 04 . 14

The word vacances is on everyone lips and on the sign on every shop that is closed.  It’s also the subject of the new special issue of AD France Best of issue, les 25 plus belles maisons de vacances. Some of them I’ve seen before but not this one in Andalusia by Laura Sartori Remini […]

Beautiful Blues

05 . 11 . 14

Sometimes I feel like all European apartments are white so I was happy to see this Milan apartment filled with beautiful blue walls. It was featured in this weekend’s T magazine and is the home of Italian writer Benedetta Cibrario. Besides blue, it’s filled with gilt frames, multiple patterns, and pops of red. It’s the […]

Blue and White Delight

04 . 28 . 14

When I went on the Carrier and Company website on Friday to link to their site, I noticed a beautiful beach house project in the Hamptons. It made me a little wistful about not being here to go out East this summer.  I’m sure that will pass the minute I land in Paris but I […]

The warmer temperatures are a great time to lighten up not only your wardrobe but also your home.  It’s the perfect opportunity to pull out your blue and white china or buy a few pieces.  The best places to find it in New York are Pearl River Mart and William Wayne. Happy Spring! Didier Haspeslagh […]

Chic Collecting

11 . 09 . 13

While I was styling an early Thanksgiving table this week for a photo shoot, I was lamenting the fact that I don’t have a large collection of blue and white china like my friend Alice Ryan does above. I was also kicking myself for not buying up the boxes of china I’ve seen at the […]

Simple Solution

08 . 13 . 13

Who could have predicted that my instagram pic my flatware in Mason jars would garner more likes than any other photo.  It really is the simplest solution if you don’t have any drawers in your kitchen like me.  Big thanks to MONC XIII for the inspiration. 

I’m still recovering from my fun weekend in the Hamptons and have a lot of photos still to edit.  Until those are ready, I’m leaving you with this beautiful home in Bridgehampton, New York designed by Vicente Wolf. Nothing says the beach like blue and white but what I really love is the interesting art […]

Beautiful Blue & White

07 . 02 . 13

I’ll never forget the story that antiques dealer John Rosselli told me about how Babe Paley once said to him, “you know John, you can never be too rich or too think or own too much blue and white porcelain.” While blue and white Chinese porcelain looks great year round, it has always been associated […]

While out and about yesterday, I popped into the Ralph Lauren Ladies Mansion to see what was new at Ralph Lauren Home.  They had changed out the rooms for their new spring collections and I was blown away by Rosecliff which reflects “the casual grandeur of the coastal Northeast.” They think of everything to make […]

While sourcing rugs for a project, I kept coming back to blue and white stripes and similar patterns.  There is something about them that is relaxed and casual yet crisp and sophisticated as in the Victorian Hagan room above.  Of course, they look perfect in beach houses which is maybe why they keep catching my eye at this […]
