In France, the 14th of July is known as Fête Nationale not Bastille Day which is what Americans have come to call the French holiday. Regardless of the name, it’s the perfect time to post this bastide house called Sainte Hélène in Provence especially since the interior colors of bleu, blanc et rouge reflect those […]

Great houses seem to run in the Burch family. We all love every home owned by Tory Burch and now her ex-husband’s new house in France is featured in the new issue of Architectural Digest. Chris Burch bought the 17-century hôtel particulier in Senlis after seeing it with the owners of Creel and Gow. One […]

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 had originally planned a different post today but I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the devastating fire at the Cathédrale de Notre-Dame de Paris yesterday. Everyone was in shock that a structure that was built in the 12th-century that had survived the Revolution, World War II, and the elements could be struck […]

I posted about Le Mas des Poiriers in 2017 and I’m still in awe of this property two years later. It’s currently featured on the cover and inside the March/April 2019 issue of Veranda where you read more about the 200 year old farmhouse and it’s extensive property. Renovating and reviving the property was a […]

Le Chardenoux

03 . 04 . 19

I don’t think I’ve ever been to the 11th arrondissement in Paris but after seeing photos of Le Chardenoux, I wonder why. The restaurant owned by chef Cyril Lignac has reopened after a renovation by Martin Brudnizski designed with charm and heritage in mind giving the traditional interiors a modern twist. The decorative foliated ceiling and marble […]

We’re expecting 5-8 inches of snow Sunday night into Monday morning but that is not stopping me from buying spring clothes. Luckily, we can shop in the comfort of our own homes instead of going outside in bad weather and Sézane is one of my favorite places to shop online. I’m always amazed that my […]

As you know, I love the French fashion brand Sézane but did you know they also have a brother brand for men? Octobre Editions began one October day with the simple idea, “to get back to the basics of menswear, the distinctive pieces that are always needed and that we take so much pleasure in […]

I rarely even bother to look at street style photos anymore. I know they will be full of outlandish fashions meant to be photographed instead of women with their own personal style. That’s why I was excited to come across Claire Thomson-Jonville on Atelier Doré. Her perfectly insouciant look led me to believe that she […]

The third fall collection from Sézane just launched today and of course I want everything. The coats, sweaters, and boots are perfect for the cooler weather that has finally arrived in New York. I’m headed down to Soho to shop at Sézane to see what I can find for an upcoming trip but luckily everything […]

I have been waiting with bated breath for the new fall collection from Sézane and it was even better than I anticipated. The autumnal colors and warmer fabrics mixed with the chicest leather bags and boots has me wishing for a cold snap. I already placed my order since everything tends to sell out quickly. […]

Hotel Lutetia in Paris

08 . 20 . 18

When I lived in Paris, I lived on rue Babylone on the top floor of a beautiful old building overlooking a park. When I looked out my window to the right, I could practically reach out and touch Le Bon Marché department store. At the end of the park on the left was the old […]
