I can’t believe we’re already into October. September seemed to go by in a flash. But it still feels a bit like summer. I can’t wait until it’s a little cooler and the leaves change. Until then, here’s some inspiration for the month. Camel Hair Blazer Double-breasted wool and cashmere-blend blazer Similar shawl collar cardigan […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

Now that we can go places again, I’ve been trying to check off some of the places I have been wanting to explore in New York. Last Friday, I took a field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum which is the oldest building in the borough of the Bronx and run by the National […]

I’ve had many requests to put together some dresses and accessories to wear to summer weddings, events, and parties. This was a little harder than I thought it would be since many dresses were sold out of sizes. Even pre-order dresses were already sold out. But I think I’ve pulled some chic options for day […]

It feels like Chairish is the new One Kings Lane. I used to love the house features and interviews on OKL but they were long gone so it’s nice to see some on the Chairish Blog now. Lauren Santo Domingo of Moda Operandi was just profiled and we get to see a few new spaces […]

Interior designer Todd Alexander Romano has always been a favorite of mine. I posted his New York apartment early on when I started blogging and his beautiful room for the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Show House and followed his subsequent apartment moves. Now Todd is splitting his time between a historic 18th-century house in Newport, […]

Last March seems to drag on forever but his March flew by and I can’t believe it’s April. I’m not really complaining though since it’s my birthday month and Central Park is finally starting to bloom. I plan to add a little color to my wardrobe with my favorite spring shades of lilac and lavender. […]

The third Monday in January is always designated as Blue Monday. It’s a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for the gifts are due. It’s even harder this year with the pandemic and the recent insurrection. I’ve seen a lot of people post in the […]

The End of an Era

01 . 17 . 21

My favorite living room is no more. Kate Rheinstein Brodsky and family moved recently so I thought a last look at their apartment was in order. Thanks to the real estate listing, we can now understand the layout with the floorplan and view a few more rooms. I can’t wait until we see their new […]

Black Friday 2020

11 . 26 . 20

Now that you’ve stuffed your face with turkey and pie, you can stuff your shopping cart with Black Friday deals. I usually post these on the day after Thanksgiving but many sales have started early and those of you who receive the email subscription will receive them on Black Friday morning. Happy Shopping!

I’m lucky that we have so many wonderful places to visit within driving distance of New York City. One of the most buzzed about is the Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut which I was lucky enough to stay at for a weekend earlier this month. The classic 35-room hotel which is part of […]

When my friend and I visited the Berkshires in August, we stopped by the Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I posted on Instagram that designers should visit since I found the simplicity of design and color choices infinitely inspiring. It looks like one of them actually took my advice. Tory Burch photographed her Spring […]

I can’t believe it’s October already. As sad as I am to wish away this year, the closer we get to 2021 makes me happy. This has been a rough year and every time I think it can’t get any worse, something manages to surprise me. On the bright side, the cooler and drier air […]

Perfect Panacea

05 . 12 . 20

It looks like things won’t open up in New York in time to allow me to make my annual June trip to Sag Harbor. I’m sad but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we won’t be able to travel for awhile. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through the East Hampton home of Kate Rheinstein […]

“April is the cruellest month, breedingLilacs out of the dead land, mixingMemory and desire, stirringDull roots with spring rain.” – T.S. Eliot I don’t think even T.S. Eliot could have predicted just how cruel April would be in 2020. April has always been my favorite month since it contains the day of my birth but […]

George Wythe House

02 . 27 . 20

I spent a very busy summer traveling last year. So busy in fact that I still haven’t even had a chance to go through all my photos. I had been thinking about finally getting to them and starting with a post on the George Wythe House in Colonial Williamsburg when interior designer Caroline Gidiere mentioned […]
