Sir John Richardson, the “renowned Picasso scholar, curator and bon vivant” was an inveterate collector as seen by the rooms in his lower Fifth Avenue loft and Connecticut house. He also had exquisite taste and now some of his fabulous finds can be yours when they come up for auction at Stair Galleries and Sotheby’s […]

I perfectly happy planning my Upstate and New England trips until I saw this Canoneta Orchard Townhouse for sale in Sóller, Mallorca. It was designed by Berrow Projects which was founded in 2016 by Archie and Monty Berrow who fell in love with the architecture and natural beauty of Sóller and saw an opportunity to […]

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous, sent me photos this weekend of the 9 East 71st Street townhouse when it was published in Architectural Digest in 1995 after they read my Friday Bon Weekend blog post. At the time it was owned by billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner who had architect Thierry Despont and interior designer […]

I really can’t believe that it will be August next weekend. Times flies when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. I jest of course. We can do things in New York but I have no desire to eat outside with people not wearing masks even if we are in one of the states that […]

Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

Sears Cottage

Some of you might remember that my friend Grant Gibson spends time in Maine every summer. I asked him today if he still planned to go since they have a two week quarantine for anyone coming into the state. I have read they might change this since most of the businesses in the state depend […]

There is nothing I find more vulgar that people who redecorate their home just so they can have it published again. If it’s done right the first time, you should never have to do it again. Such was the case with the Fifth Avenue apartment of Susan Gutfreund and her late husband John that was […]

I was first seated next to interior designer Mario Buatta at an event over ten years ago. He couldn’t have been more excited to have a fresh person to surprise with his fake cockroach prank. Decorating should be fun and it was refreshing that he didn’t take it all so seriously even though he worked […]

Art historian and biographer Sir John Richardson passed away in March of this year at the age of 95 leaving behind a legacy of wonderful books and beautifully designed homes. His Connecticut estate already sold and now his New York apartment and studio has just come on the market with Compass for $7,200,000. The 5,400 […]

Have you ever dreamed of living the luxurious life of Valentino and his business partner and friend Giancarlo Giammetti? Well, now you can since they are selling their lavish summer home, Villa La Vagnola, in Tuscany for €12 million or $13,297,872 USD. The duo bought the property in 1986 and previously listed for sale in […]

Glover House

06 . 19 . 19

Another house I love on Main Street in Sag Harbor is just coming up for sale. The Glover House was built by master craftsman Benjamin Glover in 1810 in the classic tradition and flair of a true Captain’s house. In 1850, the neighboring carriage house was combined with the house for Glover’s daughter to live […]

Palazzo Nasciaro

06 . 04 . 19

I came across an article about Palazzo Nasciaro on House & Garden today and was blown away by its beauty. It’s actually an old story from around 2016 when the property was for sale but it’s still inspiring. British millionaire author Paul Golding bought the 18th-century palazzo on the remote island of Malta around 10 […]
