When someone moves to Brooklyn because they need more room for a growing family, I immediately think of the Sex and the City episode where Miranda and Steve do just that. I don’t think their house looked anything like the chic Cobble Hill brownstone that Vogue alum and Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Durrett lives in with […]

I look forward to seeing the fashion presentation from Adam Lippes each season since he shows at home with beautiful flower arrangements from Putnam and Putnam. There is nothing I love more than the intersection of fashion and interiors his Fall/Winter 2019 collection was inspired by rich rooms of the interior design firm Studio Peregalli. […]

Film Frenzy

01 . 10 . 16

Awards Season starts in full force tonight with the Golden Globes. I’ve seen a few of the films and performances nominated which makes me more excited to see who wins. I saw Brooklyn yesterday with Saoirse Ronan and absolutely loved the sweet coming of age immigrant story set in Brooklyn and Ireland. Joy is a bit […]

Ultimate Dream Kitchen

12 . 23 . 15

My kitchen obsession continues but I think I may have found the ultimate dream kitchen. The high-glosss black and brass accented Brooklyn brownstone kitchen just featured in Lonny was designed by David Nastasi and Kate Vail for a client.  Since space is at a premium in New York, I love that they took the cabinets all the […]

Enjoy the Silence

When people ask me if I know what post has been the most popular in the almost seven years of writing Habitually Chic, I don’t even have to think.  I know it’s the post about Jenna Lyons’ brownstone in Brooklyn, Jenna Lyons Home: The Complete View from 2009. When I was photographing her for my book Creativity […]

Masculine Chic

02 . 19 . 13

Since I’ve been posting a lot of feminine fashion recently, I thought I should take a little time out for the boys. As a follow up to my post about the fall 2013 J.Crew fashion presentation, I thought it might be interesting to look at how the menswear director for J.Crew, Frank Muytjens lives at […]

Chic in Brooklyn: DARR

04 . 29 . 12

After our recent visit to the Brooklyn Museum, Tommy Smythe and I decided to do a little shopping.  One of the first places we stopped was DARR on Atlantic Avenue.  I love visiting places where you never know what you might find and DARR is filled with vintage treasures and new pieces that look old. […]

When Canadian interior designer Tommy Smythe was last in town, he invited me along to the Brooklyn Museum to see the Keith Haring: 1978–1982 exhibit.  It was a bit of the blind leading the blind getting there but luckily we made it. I was familiar with Keith Haring’s work but this show introduced me to so many […]

If you’ve got about $5.5 million lying around, this five story Brooklyn brownstone can be yours. It belongs to Charles and Olya Thompson and was featured in Vogue this past January. Olya’s a bit of an It Girl about town who hails from Russia while Charles is apparently a photographer. They lovingly restored this home […]

I don’t mind when different magazine’s publish the same home if they reshoot it and use different photos. I love seeing the changes a homeowner may have made and also with different styling. It’s fun to see rooms or areas that one magazine left out but another decided to shoot. So that’s why I was […]
