It’s that time of year again. The Kips Bay Decorator Show House opens to the public tomorrow and I had a full walk through yesterday. Since I stared in coverage in 2007, I always like to start at the top and work my way down each year. There is always a younger designer given a […]

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 […]

Back in December, I had the opportunity to attend a sneak peek preview of the Drew Barrymore Flower Home collection for Walmart. Actually, I didn’t know who I was going to show up and see because it was a secret. I was a little nervous but was excited to see it was Drew who couldn’t […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m loving lavender right now. It feels like the breath of fresh air we need to start the month of March. I realized that the pinker shade is more lilac than lavender so I’ve put together some of my favorites in both shades. If none of these strike your […]

It’s not quite warm enough for spring clothes in New York yet but the weather is sure to be gorgeous in Charleston when I travel down south for my birthday in April.

When legendary interior designer Mario Buatta died last year, His last project was just published in Architectural Digest so this seems like the perfect time to remember the cheeky and talented designer.
