Chic in Capri

06 . 30 . 19

Every once in a while there is an event that overtakes Instagram, in a good way, and this week it was the Zimmermann press trip to Capri. The fashion brand had invited a select group of celebrities and influencers to the idyllic island to celebrate the opening of their 35th store. While Zimmermann dresses usually […]

If you’re looking for the perfect hostess gift or an update for your summer table, Williams-Sonoma is currently offering 30% off the Aerin Collection. I love the patterned plates and wicker accessories. There is definitely something for everyone. And this is not a sponsored post. Just a public service announcement.

Many of us have been lamenting the passing of member of the elegant old guard recently such as Lee Radziwill, Marella Agnelli, and Jane Wrightsman. Sometimes it feels like there is no one to take up their mantle but luckily Lauren Santo Domingo is leading the charge of the next generation. Her taste is impeccable […]

I have about a 1,000 photos from Charleston to edit and a travel guide to create but until they are ready, I leave you with Easter weekend images from Chateau de Wideville in France. The chateau is owned by Valentino and these photos are from his friends Carlos Souza and Giancarlo Giammetti. While Charleston already […]

I’ve always had an affinity for Easter since it heralds the beginning of spring and often falls around my April birthday. This year, I’ll be returning from a birthday trip to Charleston on Easter but I still hope to create a pretty table top for a late meal. If you need any help planning for […]

The tourism board of New Orleans should make Jane Scott Hodges an honorary ambassador. My visit to the Crescent City would not have been half as chic without her expert guidance. She and Debra Shriver of Hearst, who also lives in Nola, were kind enough to take me to lunch at Lilette and a tour […]

I’ve shopped eBay for as long as I can remember. I have found so many wonderful vintage pieces of art, china, and silver on the site but they also sell a myriad of new items for every room in your home. Did you know 81% of the items on eBay are new and available with […]

It’s no surprise that interior designer Ken Fulk‘s book was titled Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World because he really is a magician. No where is this more apparent that his newest creation the Saint Joseph’s Arts Society in an old historic church San Francisco that sat empty since an earthquake. The private arts and social club has […]

Get Guest Ready

10 . 30 . 18

The holidays are quickly approaching and that means lots of entertaining of friends and family. To get your home ready for guests, there is no better place to shop than Walmart. They have a wide range of furniture and home decor products such as sofas, coffee tables, and bar carts, that work with any interior […]

If you’ve ever taken a walk on the Upper East Side or West Village during October, you’ll see houses with over the top decorations for Halloween. Some are so scary that I avoid during certain streets during this time of year. I personally prefer chicer home decor and tabletop pieces that can transition from Halloween […]

Royal Garden Party

05 . 17 . 18

Are you going to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on Saturday?  I’ll definitely be watching but it’s a shame her family drama is overshadowing the big day. It will be too wet in New York to throw a royal garden party to celebrate, but I’ve put together some lovely items […]

Aerin Lauder’s latest collection for Williams Sonoma Home has just launched and I think it might actually be better than her first. I love the addition of green to the blue and white mix and the new scalloped bedding. If you’re still trying to put your Easter table together or plan your spring and summer […]
