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 […]

Daybreak

02 . 01 . 20

This is one of my favorite photos I’ve taken in Paris because it shows how you can wear sneakers with different outfits and at different ages and still look chic. When I first moved to New York, sneakers were not a thing you wore outside of the gym. It was all about freezing in bare […]

Every January has a date designated as Blue Monday. It signifies a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for the gifts are due. It also doesn’t have to be a depressing day if you don’t let it. It’s a bank holiday for many people so […]

There is nothing that upsets me more than when someone buys an iconic or historic house and guts it, thus ruining what made it special. That’s why I was so astonished and happy to see that designer Francis Sultana kept the drawing room in the apartment that belonged to Fleur Cowles a similar beautiful shade […]

I think most of us in the United States probably grew up with the reference point that walls can be painted any color but molding and trim should be white. It’s only been recently that I’ve started to notice designers mixing up this notion. I know other designers have done it but I was personally […]

It turned arcticly cold this week in New York which means I’ve swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black does. It also pairs well with tan, brown, burgundy, […]

Sweater weather quickly transitioned into coat weather today when the temperature suddenly dropped. I have so many coats that they really are bursting out of my coat closet but that doesn’t stopped me from buying more every year. In fact, I just bought two in the last week. My inspiration last year and again this […]

The Carolina Herrera boutique on Madison Avenue just received the chicest renovation and redecoration. The store opened in the year 2000 so it was overdue for a refresh. The neutral interiors are now full of light from the new windows and colorful furniture that I suspect is attempt to lure in younger shoppers and not […]

Much of what I post on Habitually Chic can be described as “aspirational” design. I know this doesn’t always translate to real life which can be frustrating to those without unlimited budgets. When my very sweet public relations friend Current D’Ignazio asked me to help her pull together her first grown up apartment in New […]
