Bon Weekend!

06 . 15 . 12

I wish I was at the beach eating ice cream today.  Instead I’m working on final edits for the book which goes to print on Monday.  (Hooray!) But since the sun is finally out, I might sneak over to the park this afternoon.  I’ll be back tomorrow with some fun posts for Father’s Day.  Until […]

While I was reading the real estate ads in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens yesterday, an ad for a house in Southampton caught my eye.  “Grosvenor Atterbury design featured in Elle Decor with timelessly styled details, leaded glass, a dining/sunroom with casement windows, master suite with fireplace, billiard room and covered porch.” At only $5.995 Million […]

Grace

05 . 25 . 12

I’ve been stalking Amazon.com for months to see if they had uploaded the cover image to Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington.  When it finally posted, I was excited to see that my book won’t be the only one with an orange cover this fall.  Her cover also seems to be a nod to the old […]

Gallery Guide

05 . 04 . 12

There are so many amazing art exhibitions and events beginning this weekend that it feels like Christmas all over again.  Yesterday, I popped into the Gagosian Gallery on Madison Avenue to see the gorgeous Picasso and Françoise Gilot: Paris–Vallauris 1943–1953 exhibition.  This is the fourth Picasso show at Gagosian and the first uptown which was […]

This has been one of those weeks.  I feel exhausted and ready to relax.  But that has to wait until I finish hiding stacks of magazines before a magazine editor comes to scout my apartment.  And then there is still a few last things to do on the book.  It never ends.  Hope you get […]

I figured if people were going to be pinning my pictures on Pinterest, I might as well create my own boards.  So far I’ve only uploaded my favorite color posts but there will definitely be more to come.  Bon Weekend!

Unplugged

03 . 02 . 12

When I spoke on the panel at the Americas Mart in Atlanta in January, I was asked what trends I was seeing online.  I answered that I was noticing that more and more people were taking time to unplug.  I definitely saw some people roll their eyes and scoff at my observation.  Last night at […]

Fashionable Photos

12 . 02 . 11

If you’re looking for a Christmas present for the person who has everything, I highly suggest a Mark Shaw photograph.  My favorites includes model posing in interiors but the most amazing are models posing with famous artists in their studios.  Those were the days.  Bon Weekend!

It’s no secret that I love orange.  From burnt to bright, it always makes me happy.  It always looks great with neutrals like in the room by Jeffrey Bilhuber above, but also with pale and charcoal grey.  Bon Weekend!  Vogue UK Elle Decor Vogue UK Elle Decor J.Crew Bennett Chino Gil Schafer Tory Burch Blouse […]

Exceptional Gardens

09 . 02 . 11

This post is also a repeat but since it’s from May 2008, you might not remember it.  The garden is featured in a lovely book Exceptional Gardens that was originally published in Belgium.  The name really says it all and it’s filled with gorgeous green gardens around Europe.  Also a reminder to get out and […]

Summer Repeat

09 . 02 . 11

I’m trying to enjoy my last few days of summer so I’m taking a little time off.  Instead of leaving you high and dry, I am reposting one of my favorite summer houses from the Hamptons.  (If TV can repeat shows, why can’t I repeat posts?!)  The house belongs to Helen Lee and Tim Schifter and […]

Happy Hydrangea

06 . 10 . 11

Part of my job for the Microsoft Preview event includes picking out and styling the flowers.  Hydrangea will definitely be on my shopping list. If you are lucky enough to live in an area with abundant bushes, you can just go right outside and cut them.  I will be picking mine up from the Flower District […]

Bon Weekend

05 . 27 . 11

Here in America, we will be enjoying a long Memorial Day weekend starting today.  The UK will also be observing a Bank Holiday on Monday in preparation of summer.  While my friends down under in Australia are preparing for Autumn. No matter where you live, I hope you will spend some time relaxing outside.  Here’s […]

I recently had the pleasure of attending a fun party and dinner to celebrate the relaunch of Serena & Lily.  Andy Spade and his creative team at Partners & Spade reworked the Serena & Lily logo which can now be seen on their new summer catalog and website.  While Serena & Lily is a sponsor, I would […]

Chic in Chambray

04 . 15 . 11

Technically, this post should be titled Chic in Chambray and Denim Shirts but that didn’t have the same ring just Chic in Chambray.  I used to wear chambray and denim shirts in college until they were practically falling apart but tossed them aside after I moved to New York.  As these photos suggest, chambray, denim and […]

I am still editing all my photos from High Point but decided to take a break today.  While catching up on my favorite websites, I was excited to read on Vogue.com that there is a book about to be released about my favorite artist Joan Mitchell. While I absolutely love Joan Mitchell’s abstract paintings, I […]
