Sitting Room Folly

05 . 01 . 14

Interior designer Alexa Hampton wasn’t in the room she designed for Mark Hampton LLC when I visited last week so I sent her an email.  I told her that I thought it was beyond gorgeous and I wasn’t just saying that because she placed my book on the coffee table. And I meant it.  I never think […]

There is nothing like waking up to snow on April 16th to really depress you. It’s the kind of day when a little hot pink lipstick like Michelle Williams is wearing in the new spring ads for Louis Vuitton might be in order. The photos are so chic and cheerful that they actually want to […]

Emerald Isle

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, a little green inspiration and hope that spring won’t be far behind.  I love this dress and green bag on Maggie Betts via ELLE.  Chateau Marmont Hotel keys via Conde Nast Traveler.

Lighten Up

03 . 13 . 14

I was thinking about how to lighten up my wardrobe for spring while staying warm in the cold weather. Adding white accents to my grey pieces seems to be the ticket. Hopefully this will inspire you as well.  All images via tumblr

Long time readers will remember my aversion to pink.  Well, this awful winter has left even me longing for the cheerful affect of a little color. I actually fell in love with a pink jacket from J.Crew when I saw it at their presentation last year.  It turned out to be a very expensive Collection […]

I Love You

02 . 14 . 14

This post is red,  Violets are blue,  I hate Valentine’s Day,  But I love you.  XOXO,  HC Carolina Herrera Fall 2014 via @jessseinfeld Altuzarra Fall 2014 “Without Valentine’s Day, February would be…well, January.” – Jim Gaffigan Photos via instagram and tumblr

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.  Place de la Madeleine – Rue de la Paix Paris […]

Blue Monday

01 . 06 . 14

I have a love/hate relationship with navy blue. I don’t buy it because I think I won’t wear it since it clashes with black.  But I don’t wear black that often so that’s a silly reason especially since you can mix navy and black as you can see here.  Cartier Love Bracelets Chloe Navy and […]

Black Friday

11 . 29 . 13

While you all are braving Black Friday at stores in America, I will be traveling back to Paris from London.  I wish you lots of bargains, a good parking spot, and Godspeed. In honor of the day, I’ve put together another ode to black. Cheers!   all images via tumblr

Red Hot

11 . 17 . 13

Just because I am trying to remove color from apartment that doesn’t mean I don’t like it in my life.  Like all good interior designers, I love a pop of red scattered through out a room. I have also been trying to find the perfect red dress for winter. It would be the perfect complement […]

Grey Days

10 . 09 . 13

As soon as the weather turns grey and chilly like today, I start pulling out my grey clothes.  It’s become my go since it’s less harsh than black and is the perfect complement to my hair color. As we know, it’s also a popular choice of paint color and plays well with almost every other […]

Lighten Up

04 . 29 . 13

It was a gorgeous weekend here in New York but I was surprised how many people were still dressed for winter.  It’s definitely time to store the boots and tights and banish the black. I’m all about non-color colors like buff, nude and tan with a little pale pink thrown in for good measure.  Hope […]

Color Me Happy

04 . 15 . 13

I’ve realized this spring that my mood is directly proportional to the weather.  I’m afraid this week does not bode well in that regard so I thought we could probably all use a little color to cheer us up. Enjoy! Atlantic Pacific Alexander Kori Girard Fendi purse by Phil Oh  Tina Seidenfaden Busck’s gallery. Miroslava […]

Once again, I know it’s spring and I’m supposed to be all about color but I am still being inspired by black and white.  I mean, aren’t the black and white striped window treatments in the Milestone Hotel in London above amazing?  How could you not be inspired by them.  Enjoy!

Winning Combination

03 . 13 . 13

I posted on black and gold back in November but the color combination is still inspiring me.  This time it’s also mixed with a little white and maybe a touch of wood or marble. Black was big fashion look off the runway at Paris Fashion Week which is probably why I can’t stop thinking about […]

Black and Blue

Color Blocked

I was going to post something else today but then I thought those of us experiencing grey skies and snow showers could use a burst of color.  Bon weekend! via AD Espana Cacharel Furbish via The Glitter Guide Sterling Style design by Frank de Biasi Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Vintage via Inaluxe via Frassy […]
