Georgian Glory

10 . 12 . 15

I came across a photo of the kitchen of this home that I really loved before realizing the entire house was just as beautiful. The double-fronted Georgian townhouse was designed by Caroline Harrowby for a couple who had watched the house for years before it came up for sale. It features the comfortable relaxed design I love about […]

I Love Her Style

09 . 23 . 15

I was very excited to read this morning that Amanda Brooks’ blog I Love Your Style (also the name of her first book) is back up and running. Amanda is one of my favorite Instagram friends and I love following her not so new life on Fairgreen Farm in England. Her blog would delve more […]

When I was in London a few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Ben Pentreath‘s very elegant office and chic shop Pentreath & Hall. Unfortunately, Ben was traveling so we weren’t able to meet but I feel like I’ve gotten to know him by following his Instagram account. It chronicles his London life but […]

Small is Relative

06 . 04 . 15

This London flat was described by House & Garden as tiny but compared to what they try to pass off as apartments in NYC, it’s positively palatial. It was designed by Ann Boyd after she decided to downsize after she realized she was spending more time at her country house. To expand the space, she […]

English Country Chic

04 . 03 . 15

Do ever feel like you know someone personally because you follow them on Instagram?  While I don’t know Christie’s Chief Content Officer Jeremy Langmead in real life, I’ve very much enjoyed following along as he decorated his new house in the English countryside.  So of course I was very excited when I saw the house featured […]

Colorful Country Chic

03 . 23 . 15

I’ve spent many of these cold winter days finally cleaning out the stacks of magazines in my apartment. While leafing through an old issue of UK Vogue, I came across the beautiful home of Jemma Kidd and her family. It was also featured in Elle Decor. The 18th-century house in Hampshire is on the property […]

Bath Time

02 . 27 . 15

I kept seeing images from the living room above on Tumblr and finally decided to investigate. Turns out they are from the home of Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton, the founder of Cereal magazine, that were featured on Freunde von Freunden. Not only is the apartment interesting but it’s location in Bath, England is a […]

Kime Time

11 . 16 . 14

I’m editing my photos from San Francisco and Napa Valley on the plane right now. (Don’t you just love modern technology?!) While I work on a few fun posts from my trip, I highly suggest you check out the English country cottage and London home of fabric and interior designer Robert Kime in T magazine. The drawing room of […]

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 […]

London Calling

07 . 29 . 14

I’m currently in London for a few days to meet up with my friend who’s in town from New York.  The city seems a little less hectic than it did when I was here last November. We’ve had great luck with the weather and played tourist in between shopping and eating.  Great restaurants to try […]

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 […]

Not only do I love to peruse auction catalogs for possible purchases but they are great sources for inspiration.  The Michael Inchbald: A Legacy of Design sale at Christie’s in London next week is yet another example.  I was not familiar with the British interior designer Michael Inchbald who passed away last year. He worked […]

Loving London

11 . 26 . 13

I think jet lag has finally caught up with me so I’m taking the night off. Or maybe I’m exhausted because I walked (and shopped) all over the city today. I’m loving London overall but one of the highlights was being overwhelmed with options at Fortnum & Mason for gifts for myself and others. But […]

Christmas in Europe

11 . 26 . 13

While everyone in the US is gearing up for Thanksgiving, Europe is in full Christmas mode.  The decorations in Paris were particularly beautiful and I look forward to seeing more when I go back on Friday.  Ladurée on rue Bonaparte above just finished their decorations. I just arrived in London today and what I’ve seen […]

One of the things I will never become jaded or complacent about is traveling.  At its worst, it’s expensive and exhausting but at its best, it’s inspiring and invigorating. It opens you up new places, new experiences, new friends, and in the best of circumstance, new romances. Things have been a bit stressful lately and […]

Chic in the Cotswolds

10 . 30 . 13

When I picked up the November 2013 Style Guide from J.Crew, I thought something looked familiar.  On closer inspection, I realized that it was photographed around the home of Amanda Brooks.  Not only that, her husband, the artist Christopher Brooks and her daughter Coco were among the models, in addition to their horses and dog […]

Meet Manolo

03 . 13 . 13

Morning meetings mess me up.  It’s usually the time I return emails and work on blog posts which is why I don’t schedule them.  Since I’m behind on everything from one earlier today, I am posting a repeat post but it’s from October 2010 and relevant for what’s going on in New York this week. […]
