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 […]

It’s a bank holiday weekend in the UK and it feels everyone else in Europe is en vacances until September begins. I’ve been traveling so much this summer that I’m happy to be at home getting ready for fall. But here’s one last look at summer for those of you who aren’t ready for it […]

Palmer House

08 . 23 . 19

Remember when I went to Colonial Williamsburg in May? I posted most of my trip on Instagram and Stories but I couldn’t post photos of Palmer House until it was published in Veranda which just happened this week. Palmer House was decorated by Anthony Baratta who was tapped as Colonial Williamsburg’s first Designer in Residence. […]

Summertime Blues 2019

08 . 19 . 19

I posted a Summertimes Blues post last August and I liked it so much I decided to repost it again this year. I made a few tweaks so it’s not exactly the same. I hope you are enjoying your last weeks of summer before it’s back to school and reality time. Interior design by SJB Nine […]

The days are getting shorter and the light is getting lower. That means I’m ready to shift my colorful summer wardrobe into neutral. That means an excuse for a color compilation post. Enjoy. Atelier Vime Alighieri fractured memory earrings on @monicaainley Similar swimsuit available here and here and here and here. Crocheted cotton-blend tote Via […]

I arrived at the top floor room of Young Huh at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House out of breath from running up five flights of stairs to see her. After exclaiming that I need to make a bigger commitment to cardio, she luckily assured me it happened to everyone. If the elevator isn’t working […]

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 […]
