Cynthia Frank at Home

11 . 24 . 19

Cynthia Frank is one of the chicest magazine editors around so it was no surprise to find out that her home is as well. The Upper East Side abode she shares with her husband Donald is an ode to France that makes her feel like she’s in Paris. It’s featured in the December 2019 issue […]

Summertime Blues 2019

08 . 19 . 19

I posted a Summertimes Blues post last August and I liked it so much I decided to repost it again this year. I made a few tweaks so it’s not exactly the same. I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer before it’s back to school and reality time. Interior design by SJB Nine […]

If you’re one of the millions of follows of Gal Meets Glam, you’ve probably seen glimpses of the Charleston home of founder Julia Engel and her husband Thomas Berolzheimer. Now you can see the entire house that was renovated by architect Beau Clowney and decorated by interior design Olivia Brock of Torrance Mitchell Design in Southern Living. […]

I’m not sure when or if I’ll make it out east to tour the Hamptons Designer Showhouse so I was very happy that Alessandra Branca was kind enough to share these exclusive photos of her chic room. The room and color story of blue and coral mixed with natural textures was inspired by Hamptons beach […]

I love watching Wimbledon for the tennis and the fashion. There is a “smart casual” dress code at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for spectators but those invited to sit in the Royal Box adhere to a strict dress code which includes “a demure dress for ladies and a jacket, tie and […]

My navy jacket from Sézane is sold out but there are other fabric options available. Another great option is this navy Blazé Milano Spirit herringbone double-breasted silk blazer. I’ve been coveting one of their blazers for years and the sale makes it the perfect time to pick one up. This striped boatneck t-shirt was such […]

There are many people who declare themselves an interior designer with no education or even experience but this is not the case with Alice Engel, the interior design director for Peter Pennoyer Architects. The Manhattan born and bred Engel has an A.B. in History of Art and Architecture from Harvard and a Masters in Textile […]

It feels like winter again in New York but if you decorated as colorfully as interior designer Meg Braff, it can feel like spring all year long. Her new Locust Valley house is featured in the new May/June 2019 issue of Veranda and it looks like a ray of sunshine. Meg is originally from Mississippi […]

Although we’re not completely out of the winter woods yet, the warmer and sunnier weather this week has everyone excited for spring. I’ve been getting my wardrobe ready for the change of season so I thought I’d share a few of my finds with you. It’s also a good time to go through your closet […]

I need to plan another warm weather getaway since I just received a beautiful new dress from Danielle Fichera.  I love her collections because every one of her pieces is designed with sustainably sourced fabrics and made in the New York garment district. Danielle is known for her use of fil coupé fabric and I […]

It was raining when I visited the Kips Bay Show House in Palm Beach and Peter Dunham‘s room looked like the perfect place for rainy day activities. The Los Angeles based designer upholstered the walls in his Collage fabric from Peter Dunham Textiles, upholstered the sofa in his Souk fabric, and grounded the room with […]

Each January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for presents are due. The weather in New York has a windchill below zero but it’s also a bank holiday so at least most people don’t have […]
