An Artist’s Abode

07 . 05 . 15

As I mentioned before, I love when homes I’ve visited are featured online since it gives me the chance to see all the other rooms in the house.  Such is the case with California abode of artist and designer Lulu deKwiatkowski featured on One Kings Lane. I photographed Lulu and her studio space for my book […]

As someone who wrote and photographed a book on creative people’s work spaces (Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work – shameless plug), I am very intrigued to pick up the new book Yves Saint Laurent’s Studio: Mirror and Secretsby Jéromine Savignon. According to WWD, it will be published by Actes Sud in both French and in English, “and […]

Chic at Work: Everlane

11 . 17 . 14

I’ve been wearing Everlane since 2012 so when I was in San Francisco, I couldn’t wait to pay a visit to their office to see where the magic happens. For those of you not familiar with them, Everlane is billed as “luxury essentials without traditional retail markeups.” It was founded by Michael Preysman who decided to rethink […]

La Rentrée

09 . 02 . 14

The French call it la rentrée. In America, we call it “back to school.” Whatever you call it, it’s time to stop goofing off and get back to work.  Hopefully, you have a chic desk to help you get over your depression that summer is unofficially over. If not, maybe these will inspire you to […]

I am going to miss so many things about Paris but working on a laptop is not one of them.  It feels like it’s time to get back to being productive on a real computer at a real desk. Of course, if I had a real office like Jenna Lyons, I might be even more […]

Fall Book Brigade

09 . 10 . 13

I’m either going to have to build more shelves or move in order to accommodate all the new books coming out this fall. Lots of fabulous design books are about to be published from some your favorite decorators, as well as books by a few first time authors whose names you will definitely recognize.  I’ll […]

When you work on a book, you realize during the process that sometimes certain elements don’t work or you don’t have enough pages to include everything you had originally intended. Lucky for me, I knew that I would be able to feature these interviews and workspace photos on the blog.  While we did feature photos […]

Today marks my six year blog anniversary.  It seems like forever ago since I wrote my first post and yet also just like yesterday.  I’m still amazed daily though at all the wonderful things that have come about because of Habitually Chic. Publishing my book Creativity at Work has to be at the top of […]

Tuscan Chic

04 . 24 . 13

When I first found out that antiques dealer Gerald Bland and his artist wife Mita Corsini Bland had a home in Tuscany, it took all my will power not to beg them to let me visit.  Now that it’s featured in the May/June 2013 issue of Veranda magazine, I’m pretty sure everyone is going to […]

Back in Stock

03 . 18 . 13

As many of you discovered recently, my book Creativity at Work was out of stock online and in many stores.  I am happy to announce that the second printing arrived in the warehouse and Amazon and other sites now have it back in stock.  Now that we have more books, I can also start scheduling […]

While in Toronto, I was part of an interesting conversation about design and books led by the founder of Indigo Books, Heather Reisman.  She said there are two types of book lovers.  The first are voracious readers who always have a book with them and buy a new book before they finished with their current […]

As I embark on my last book signing for Creativity at Work until the new year, I want to take the time to thank you all.  Thank you to everyone who has bought the book and sent me kind messages and thank you to all the showrooms and stores who have hosted signings.  They include, […]
