April is my favorite time of year since it is the month of my birth and the beginning of spring. The flowers and trees will burst into bloom this month and I can’t wait to take a daily walk in Central Park to see their progression. They are already seeing daffodils pop up across the […]

Spring is not only a good time to refresh your closet but also your walls. I’ve been rearranging my art and adding new pieces from Artfully Walls in new color schemes. Artfully Walls is a chic, contemporary, and affordable way to shop for art prints from a carefully curated group of artists from around the […]

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. I remember sitting next to him at a dinner at least 10 years ago and being unaware of what was in store for […]

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Broshahan is the new face of Frances Valentine, the line created by her late aunt Kate Spade. The synergy couldn’t be more perfect. Rachel not only looks like her aunt but the fashions and accessories remind me of pieces that Mrs. Maisel would wear around New York and the […]

I can’t think of a better time to post the most old school Florida inspired room from the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach than when most of the country is experiencing the coldest weather in history. Perhaps the bright and sunny room by interior designer Meg Braff will be the just catalyst you need […]

I love old houses and especially those in the United Kingdom. I realized recently it’s probably because they usually stay in one family for hundreds of years so each generation adds something that gives them a collected look rather than a decorated one. It’s even more amazing that one actually decorated by the legendary interior […]

Long time readers know that I wear a lot of grey fashions in the fall and winter. The color looks good against my honey/caramel hair and it’s not as harsh as black. It also shows a lot less lint. While I’ve already been wearing grey sweaters, I have just pulled out my heavier grey wool […]

As a follow up to yesterday’s neutral outfit is a neutral color […]

New designers at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House are often given small or awkward spaces. It feels like a test. Will they complain or knock it out of the park so they can graduate to a bigger space down the road? Sasha Bickoff was given a plain white staircase that she turned into a […]
