One Bathroom Two Ways

06 . 08 . 15

The two bathrooms at the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House follow the exact same footprint so it was interesting to see how differently they were designed. The first one was planned as a bathroom and dressing room for an Englishman in New York by Clive Christian. It’s very old school and elegant while the second […]

Interior designer Alessandra Branca loves all colors but she has become most known for her use of red.  So much so that when she suggests to show house committees that she’d like to design a different color room, they steer her back to red because it’s what the public wants.  And I have a feeling […]

In the Buff

01 . 30 . 15

As many of you know, I don’t love pink but I do love a pale buff version of pink.  While I’m not ready to break out bold colors for spring just yet, I am adding a bit of buff to my grey ensembles. It’s a color that plays well with others in fashion and interior design. […]

Hello Yellow

01 . 21 . 15

I keep seeing yellow everywhere I look online lately. Maybe it’s a reaction to the grey and cold winter months but it is a cheerful and hopeful color. According to Sensational Color, the color yellow “shines with optimism, enlightenment, and happiness. Shades of golden yellow carry the promise of a positive future. Yellow will advance […]

Thinking of Paris

01 . 13 . 15

I felt so sad and guilty last week to be heading to a sunny destination when so much was going on in Paris last week. Everyone in the city was on my mind including those I got to know while living in the city of light this summer including Victoire de Taillac and Ramdane Touhami. […]

White Out

01 . 06 . 15

It just started snowing in New York. I don’t mind since I’m leaving for the Caribbean tomorrow.  I also feel like the snow will be a lovely cleanse for the new year. I want everything to be white and clean just like a blanket of now.  According to Sensational Color, the color white aids mental […]

Grey Day

12 . 09 . 14

It’s rainy, cold and grey in New York today. It matches my winter wardrobe, the mood in the city, and this color compilation post. Enjoy. Outfit in first photos via J.Crew. Stainless Steel and Rose Gold Rolex from 1962 via 1stdibs. Christian Dior

Off to Art Basel

12 . 02 . 14

I’m off to Miami this morning for Art Basel.  It’s my first time attending and I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about. From what I hear it’s more about the parties than the actual art but I will let you know. I’m excited to be staying at the new Miami Beach […]

Black Friday 2014

11 . 28 . 14

Why anyone would want to go to a big box retailer and possibly get punched in the face for a discounted flat screen tv is beyond me but to each his own. Although, I’m pretty sure there have been some fancy lady fist fights over discounted shoes at the sales at Barneys and Bergdorfs. Black […]

Blue Monday: Part IV

10 . 27 . 14

Does it seem like the weekends are flying by these days? I have a case of the Monday blues so what better way to deal with it than posting some pretty navy inspiration. Photo from Paris by me.

I was lucky enough to see Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs this summer at the Tate Modern in London and today I saw it in New York.  Even though the new exhibition that opens at the Museum of Modern Art on October 12th contains much of the same art, it still feels exciting and new.  One […]

Singing sensation and sometimes wild child Lily Allen seems to have settled down now that she’s married with two children.  She and her family have moved to the charming Cotswolds area about two hours from London.  Vogue featured the home in their September 2014 issue but I’ve also found a few more photos of the […]

White Hot

08 . 21 . 14

  I think we all agree that the rule “no white after Labor Day” is a bit antiquated.  That being said, I would put away anything that looks really light and summery.  I will keep out my favorite white jeans and pair them with a grey blazer or a black silk blouse instead of something […]

I had the great pleasure of attending my first fashion show in Paris Saturday night and I couldn’t have started off with a better one than Hermès. If it hadn’t been raining, the Hermès homme été 2015 show would have taken place in the jardin of le Cloitre des Cordeliers and looked like the sketch above. […]

Lovely Lupita

06 . 19 . 14

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Lupita Nyong’o is a Vogue cover girl after her do no wrong red carpet looks during award season but it was still exciting to see her on the July issue.  The 31 year old Oscar winning actress was photographed by Mikael Jansson in Morocco which is a perfect […]

The Boy from Brazil

06 . 17 . 14

I was thinking about what I could post from Brazil in honor of the World Cup when I thought of the fabulous Fabrizio Rollo who I just started following on Instagram. He describes himself on his website as “architect, designer, and journalist.” He is the lifestyle editor of Harper’s Bazaar in Brazil and was previously an […]

Beautiful Blues

05 . 11 . 14

Sometimes I feel like all European apartments are white so I was happy to see this Milan apartment filled with beautiful blue walls. It was featured in this weekend’s T magazine and is the home of Italian writer Benedetta Cibrario. Besides blue, it’s filled with gilt frames, multiple patterns, and pops of red. It’s the […]
