Cynthia Frank at Home

11 . 24 . 19

Cynthia Frank is one of the chicest magazine editors around so it was no surprise to find out that her home is as well. The Upper East Side abode she shares with her husband Donald is an ode to France that makes her feel like she’s in Paris. It’s featured in the December 2019 issue […]

Aerin Lauder in Paris

08 . 07 . 19

This week has been a little crazy. As soon as I returned from Nantucket, I jumped into styling my friend’s apartment for a photoshoot today. In the midst of all my running around, I did manage to pick up a few of the September magazines including the new Elle Decor with Aerin Lauder in Paris […]

I originally planned to just post Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment to show her interior design style but then I realized it wouldn’t tell the entire story of her design progression. So I made a deep dive into the archives and spent all day Sunday outlining them. Some of her rooms have become iconic and she […]

I enjoy following interior designer Justin Van Breda on Instagram so it was lovely to see the house he shares with Alastair Matchett in the Costwolds in the July/August 2018 issue of Elle Decor. Justin came from South Africa to work for designer Nicholas Haslam but now has his own design firm and product lines […]

I’m trying to get better at reading each night instead of getting sucked into social media. This includes the stacks of magazines piling up in addition to all the new books I just bought. My favorite feature in one of the November magazines is this apartment by architect Carlos Aparicio in Buenos Aires in Elle […]

When you visit San Francisco, you start to realize how many places Ken Fulk has designed in the city. I’ll have more on this next week but until then, I wanted to revisit one of his finest design projects in the Presidio Heights area of the city that was featured in Elle Decor last year. […]

You may remember my recent feature on Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s store KRB last month. Now One Kings Lane has a lovely feature on her family apartment on the Upper East Side. I’ve also included a few photos from her cover feature from Elle Decor in 2015. The best thing about the OKL story is that you […]

I returned from Charleston late Monday night and I’m headed to Mexico at the crack of dawn Thursday but that isn’t stopping me from contemplating a trip to England. While I’m overdue for a visit to London but I would love to visit the countryside as well. It’s too bad Somerleyton Hall is a private home because […]

I need to get a Christmas wreath this week but I have to wait on other decorations because I have back to back trips coming up and don’t want everything to die. If you need a little inspiration for your holiday decorations, this Montana mountain house that Ken Fulk designed that was featured in the […]

One of my friends worked for Robert Duffy, the founder and deputy chairman of Marc Jacobs International, for many years so I always love seeing his home featured in magazines. His latest is Ferncliff Estate, an old Astor estate near Rhinebeck in the Hudson Valley that is in the October 2016 issue of Elle Decor. He […]

Colonial Chic

08 . 31 . 16

We’re just heading into September and the October magazines are already hitting the newsstands. The Style Issue of Elle Decor is filled with homes of the chicest members of the fashion world including Robert Duffy, Jeffrey Kalinsky, Cordelia de Castellane, Meredith Melling, and Veronica Swanson Beard, seen here. The Locast Valley Colonia is the weekend […]

Ina Garten’s Garden

07 . 31 . 16

After a week of oppressive 90 degree temperatures, I’m actually enjoying this rainy and cooler weekend. I’m sure everyone’s gardens are enjoying the rain including Ina Garten‘s garden. (Try saying three times fast.) Her gorgeous East Hampton property just featured in the July/August 2016 issue of Elle Decor written by Kate Betts. The garden was designed […]

As you know, Sag Harbor is my favorite place in the Hamptons. When I’m in town, I love stopping by to say hello to Mona Nerenberg at her very chic store Bloom. While I was there in June, Mona let me  know that not only was the home she shares with her partner Lisa Bynon going to […]

It feels like winter again in New York but it looks like spring on the cover of the new May 2015 issue of Elle Decor. I love the floral fabric that Kate Rheinstein Brodsky chose for the upholstery and that gorgeous marble topped console table in her living room on the cover. Kate was kind […]

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 […]

Chic in Hampshire

03 . 05 . 14

We just entered March but April magazines are already making their way to newsstands.  I’ll be stopping by Lexington News today to pick up all my favorites including Elle Decor.  The April issue features the very lovely home of model and makeup artist Jemma Kidd and her family in Hampshire, England. The wet English weather […]

Weekend Reading

02 . 07 . 14

I had an interesting conversation with a photographer recently who told me that online people still want to publish something tangible and long lasting.  As a published author, I can attest to this and it looks like Net-a-Porter can now too.  Their new magazine Porter hits newsstands today.  After all the publicity I’ve seen for […]
