An Artist’s Abode

07 . 05 . 15

As I mentioned before, I love when homes I’ve visited are featured online since it gives me the chance to see all the other rooms in the house.  Such is the case with California abode of artist and designer Lulu deKwiatkowski featured on One Kings Lane. I photographed Lulu and her studio space for my book […]

California Dreaming

06 . 14 . 15

I don’t think there is one New Yorker who didn’t dream of moving to California this past winter. One Manhattanite who made the escape to Los Angeles years ago is designer and writer David Netto.  I’ve posted photos of his Richard Neutra mid-century modern home many times but I love the new peek that was shown […]

Artful Restraint

05 . 20 . 15

Even though I don’t live in California, C Magazine is one of my absolute favorite magazines. Their home features led to an entirely separate magazine C Home which I love finding in my mailbox. After falling down a rabbit hole from one photo of Bruce Gregga’s Montecito home on Pinterest, I found out that it was […]

It feels like the weather has bypassed spring and moved straight to summer.  I would be more excited about the warmer temperatures if I felt like my closet was also ready. If you’re in the same boat as me or just want to add a few new chic pieces to your warm weather wardrobe, I […]

I love receiving fashion designer Jenni Kayne‘s blog Rip + Tan, named after her children.  It’s full of healthy recipes, interesting profiles, and eco-friendly advice.  Maybe it’s because she and her family live in California. I’m also still in awe of her organizational skills that were on display in Martha Stewart Living magazine.  So there […]

  I couldn’t think of a more fun person to contribute a California chic and casual gift guide than interior designer, entertaining expert, and store owner Nathan Turner. As many of you probably saw of the show Million Dollar Decorators, he’s extremely funny and down to earth. I really think they should create a show […]

People in Glass Houses

11 . 25 . 14

I was lucky enough be invited to stay at the Chafen’s new house in Napa Valley when I visited them. It is located a short drive from the Dutch Henry Winery but has its own vineyard outside the front door that had just been planted. Every time I looked out the windows, I questioned why […]

When I told everyone that I was going to Napa Valley for the first time recently, everyone agreed it was one of their favorite places and that I was going to absolutely love it.  I can confirm that they were right.  I could not have asked for better host for my first visit than the […]

I’m having a great time in the Napa Valley. The weather has been perfect and the wine plentiful. What more could you ask for?!  Bon week-end!   View from Dutch Henry Winery by me.

Chic in San Francisco

11 . 11 . 14

When I mentioned that I was going to be visiting California this week, everyone assumed I meant Los Angeles. I’m actually in San Francisco right now. I’m here for a few days before I head to Napa to visit Dutch Henry Winery. I’ve never been to Napa and everyone agrees that I’m going to love […]

California Chic

11 . 05 . 14

I’m getting ready for a trip to California next week that will hopefully include sunshine and warmer temperatures than we’re having in New York.  I’m also hoping it includes lots of great design inspiration. California is home to a lot of great interior designers and stores that I hope to hit.  I love the interior/outdoor […]

I couldn’t wait to see more of her C Home magazine feature after stylist Jessica de Ruiter posted the photo above on her Instagram account. This is the second issue of the publication from the team behind C magazine and Jessica also graces the cover.   I haven’t yet seen a hard copy of the […]
