According to Bourne Creative, green is… “the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. Green is also traditionally associated with money, finances, banking, ambition, greed, jealousy, and wall street. The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful […]

White Hot

08 . 17 . 16

While I’m ready for fall and nicer weather, I’m trying to enjoy the last days of summer which includes wearing lots of white.  Here’s a little inspiration to keep you cool in these dog days. Pima Cotton Nightdress Leather Sneakers Pearl Earrings Joya Candle Cashmere Coat

I was going to continue with my white theme today until I was reminded of the colorful apartment of Vogue editor Hamish Bowles while spring cleaning stacks of magazines. It was designed with Studio Peregalli with work by Agencie and was featured in the November 2014 issue of World of Interiors. While located near Washington Square, it looks […]

Colorfully Chic

03 . 27 . 16

I can’t think of a better home to post on Easter than one with bright Easter egg colored rooms. It’s also appropriate since many of the furnishings in Todd Alexander Romano‘s New York apartment are up for auction at Christie’s this week. Romano is best known for mixing periods and styles with great success. “Some of my […]

It’s cold and rainy in Paris this morning, so I’m dreaming of warmer weather and the new spring collection at J. McLaughlin is making me dream even harder. I love all the pretty colors and fun patterns that are perfect for work and weekend. I want to be wearing all of them while enjoying some sunshine. To help […]

Shine On

02 . 20 . 16

After seeing a photo of myself from my recent trip to Palm Springs, I realized that maybe I should start wearing brighter lipstick.  It’s an easy way to update your look and brighten your mood without spending a lot of money. As soon as I got home, I ordered a few exclusive shades of YSL Rouge […]

Miri Mara Ceramics

02 . 12 . 16

While I was in Montecito last weekend, designer Kendall Conrad was insistent that I visit Miri Mara Ceramics. After seeing the unique shapes, textures, and colors of their pieces, I can see why.  Owner Fatmir “Miri” Mara was a fashion designer in Milan for almost 20 years before he and his husband decided to retire to Santa Barbara. […]

While I’m in California today, my mind is on Italy. I’m taking over the Farrow & Ball Instagram account today to highlight all the green I saw in on my autumn trip to celebrate their nine new colours including my favorite Yeabridge Green. The Wes Anderson designed Bar Luce in the Fondazione Prada in Milan had […]

I was reading something online that declared the last Monday in January to be the most depressing day of the year. It seemed a little silly until I woke up to discover four foot snow drifts and slush piles on every corner. If you are feeling blue, here are some images that might actually cheer […]

Palazzo Fendi

01 . 17 . 16

Perhaps I would have enjoyed Rome more last autumn if I had been able to stay at the ridiculously chic Fendi Private Suites Hotel featured in the new WSJ magazine out next weekend. The luxury fashion house moved its corporate headquarters and reconfigured the 17th-century Palazzo Fendi with three separate architecture firms to create the boutique hotel, their largest store, an […]

Grey Days

12 . 01 . 15

While I have been buying Christmas presents for others, I’ve also been buying myself a few things. The sales have been so great that it was hard not to take advantage of them. After a few deliveries arrived yesterday, I realized that most of what I’ve bought is grey.  It’s my go to color for […]

Camel Coat Collection

10 . 15 . 15

The temperature has dropped and the heat has come on in my apartment building so that means it’s time to open up the coat closet. Camel coats are perfect for this time of year because they look lighter than most dark colored coats and they coordinate with almost every color. Camel looks great with white, […]

Fade to Black

10 . 06 . 15

As the weather cools down and the rain returns, I find myself reaching for anything black in my closet. It’s the color that many wear in Milan which is where I’m returning today so in that honor, I give you a compilation of the absence of color.

Chic & Colorful

08 . 24 . 15

I’m not a huge fan of color in my own life but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it, especially when it’s done exceptionally well.  I actually wouldn’t expect anything less from interior designer Alex Papachristidis whose elegant pre-war New York apartment was just featured on One Kings Lane. Alex is also a master at […]

The Absence of Color

08 . 16 . 15

“Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” ― Coco Chanel

I had the pleasure of attending a dinner party for Bonpoint in a gorgeous West Village townhouse last year. (You can see the photos in my post Beautiful Bonpoint Dinner.) Now you can see the rest of the six-story home of Annabel and Jos White thanks to House & Garden magazine. The sitting room furniture was […]

Yellow & White Delight

06 . 13 . 15

I feel like yellow and white stripes are the new blue and white stripes.  We saw them earlier this week on the awning of the Grand Banks and all over Instagram for the Hotel Il Pellicano 50th anniversary party weekend. That’s Bianca Brandolini and Eugenia Niarchos looking chic on the iconic towels in matching retro inspired […]
