Word on the street is that the home of fashion designer Monique Lhuillier will grace the cover of the January/February 2008 issue of Elle Decor. Ever the multi-tasker, Ms. Lhuillier was perusing vintage wallpapers and interior design books while planning her new home that would make room for her first baby, all while continuing to […]

A Fashionable Read

10 . 01 . 07

It’s Paris Fashion week right now so I thought I would start the week off on a fashionable note. There is a gorgeous new book out now that pays homage to the ultimate king of fashion, Valentino, who also recently celebrated his 45th Anniversary in the business with a three days of decadent parties in […]

Chic Chinoiserie

09 . 18 . 07

I’m sure you’ve all read over at Style Court that it’s Asia Week. All the serious collector’s are in town this week for the auctions, gallery shows and other events. Christie’s was hopping on Sunday when I stopped by to check out what was up for auction, as was Sotheby’s. Another great place for fans […]

When I was looking for Jeremiah Goodman illustrations yesterday, I came across one he did of Diana Vreeland’s living room. I had been meaning to write a little post about the grand dame of fashion for a while and now seemed like the perfect opportunity. I also think it’s another example of the world of […]

Carolina Herrera often cites artists as her inspiration. A few years back it was French photographer Jacques-Henri Lartigue. This season, it’s the interiors illustrator extraordinaire Jeremiah Goodman and his book Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision. Can you think of anything more chic?! It’s also the perfect example of the way fashion, art, and interior design often […]

It’s a little dreary in New York this morning so I think I little shopping might be in order today but before I go, I thought I would tell you about a few of my new favorite things. Enjoy! J. Crew Enamel Bracelets – These bracelets are fabulous and affordable! Plus, they come in a […]

Just one more fashion related post. Oh, who am I kidding, I might have a few more left. But they’re all fabulous so you can’t be too bored. The man of the hour this time is the always fashionable Robert Burke, who used to do something terribly important and have a ridiculously long title at […]

I Heart Gilles Mendel

09 . 13 . 07

A little while back, I saw two small photos of bachelor Gilles Mendel’s apartment and was dying to see more. Luckily for me, the October 2007 issue of Elle Decor has a whole spread dedicated to the designer and CEO of J. Mendel, his family’s company that was founded in 1870. Talk about chic! J. […]

I can’t tell you how much I love Loeffler Randall shoes. Every season, I check out their line sheets and wish I could buy every pair. In a city where everyone is wearing the same old Louboutins, they area a breath of fresh air. The married designing duo, Jessie Randall and Brian Murphy, have had […]

Tonne Tonne Tonne

09 . 10 . 07

I thought I would continue the “I hate them because their homes are beautiful” theme that has taken over my coverage of the domiciles of the stylish during fashion week with the townhouse of Tonne Goodman and her family. For those of you who don’t know, Tonne is a former model and current fashion director […]

Do you hate Carlos Souza yet? If not, you will after seeing his Rome apartment located in a historic 1860’s building in Piazza Vittorio. This apartment was designed before his New York apartment and is surprising in it’s modernity but not in it’s mix of personal mementos. In the living room above, a Mies can […]

Even though Valentino doesn’t show during New York fashion week, he’s still a huge presence in the city and his Director of Public Relations, Carlos Souza has an apartment here. If you think it was easy to hate Diane von Furstenberg for her amazing homes, then you’re really going to hate Carlos Souza! This native […]
