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 […]
