This second holiday gift guide was supposed to be posted last Friday but I just didn’t have time to work on it before my weekend trip to the Mayflower Inn and Spa. I’m happy that so many of you enjoyed the first one and I hope your gift recipients will be happy too. The embroidered […]

I know some of you will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited so you can start shopping now. I’m posting a week earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays as more people than ever will be shopping online for gifts this year. Many friends and […]

Merry Christmas 2019

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas! XOXO, HC

If I had to award a top prize for holiday decorating, it would go to Brian Branton in Alexandria, Virginia. He goes all out each year decorating his historic home from 1808 with multiple Christmas trees, wreathes, and swags. I posted about him last year but he deserves another post since his home was just […]

I posted this historic house from 1845 in Essex, Connecticut designed by the lovely design duo Olasky and Sinsteden a few weeks ago. The home is featured in the November/December 2019 issue of New England Home but the photos online were a little small. Photographer Read McKendree and Max Sinsteden were very generous in sending me larger images to swap […]

An Elegant Christmas

I love festive and colorful Christmas decorations as much as anyone but I also appreciate quiet and elegant Christmas decorations. I came across the Park Avenue apartment of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels decorated for Christmas in the November/December 2016 issue of Veranda and love the details they’ve added to each room. I’ve combined those […]

This holiday season is mostly in full swing in New York but the late Thanksgiving has pushed some things back. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was just lit yesterday and the Park Avenue Tree Lighting is scheduled for Sunday night. The Bergdorf Goodman “Good Times” holiday windows have been for a week. I don’t think […]

I was supposed to decorate my apartment for Christmas on Sunday but my gift guide took so long to put together that I didn’t have time. Seeing everyone’s houses decorated on Instagram is giving me major fomo now and none more so than Fairgreen Farm which is the home of Amanda Brooks. It’s just been […]

The Halls are Decked

12 . 02 . 19

There aren’t that many holiday decorated houses published in magazines so I get very excited when I find one. Especially when it’s a a historic house from 1845 in Essex, Connecticut designed by the lovely design duo Olasky and Sinsteden. Not only did they help pull all interiors together but they also took care of […]
