I had the pleasure of visiting potter Frances Palmer at her studio and gardens in Connecticut on a lovely early fall day recently. The leaves were already changing but her dahlias were still in full bloom. Frances is not only throws her own pots but also grows all the flowers that she photographs in them […]

I ordered the September 2019 issue of Vogue from Amazon last week and was rewarded with a feature of Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo’s house in Southampton, New York. Well, it’s not actually the whole house. The gardens designed by Miranda Brooks, which were probably photographed at their height last summer, take center stage […]

One of the highlights of my trip to Sag Harbor was getting to see my friend Chris Kann‘s charming Sag Harbor cottage. I’ve seen photo on Instagram but it’s even better in person. I arrived around 4:00pm on Friday and the light was so beautiful. We drank rosé in the yard and watched the cardinals […]

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’m not sure how I started following French public relations executive and event planner Francoise Dumas on Instagram. It might have been from her interior decorator Pierre Passabon or his partner of Jacques Grange. Or maybe it was because she is based in Paris and I get glimpses of my favorite city. Regardless of the […]

I enjoy following interior designer Justin Van Breda on Instagram so it was lovely to see the house he shares with Alastair Matchett in the Costwolds in the July/August 2018 issue of Elle Decor. Justin came from South Africa to work for designer Nicholas Haslam but now has his own design firm and product lines […]

Gardener’s Delight

06 . 04 . 18

The one good thing that all the recent rain has brought is abundant greenery. Interior designer Robert Couturier posted a few images of his garden in Kent, Connecticut on Instagram and you can see how lush it’s looking these days. I also thought it was a good excuse to post more photos of his beautifully […]

Under the Tuscan Sun

04 . 13 . 18

This week has been crazy and next week is poised to be even crazier. I’m hoping to be able to take a long walk in Central Park now that it’s finally warmed up. Until that happens, I’m going to gaze at photos of this beautiful relaxing garden in Tuscany by Luciano Giubbilei that was featured in […]

High Meadow Farm

03 . 07 . 18

I can attest that everyone in New York is ready for spring to arrive. Unfortunately, snow is falling right now and we’re expecting an accumulation of 6-12 inches. This seems like the perfect time to post a beautiful garden I came across on Pinterest. The first photo led me to a Martha Stewart.com profile of Dominique […]

More Montecito Magic

02 . 12 . 18

Things are starting to get back to normal in Montecito, California after the recent fires and mudslides. My friend’s family was finally allowed to return to their home and he sends me periodic updates of the construction and clean up. It’s such a beautiful place that it’s no wonder that so many people have made […]

It’s grey and rainy in New York this morning so I feel like it’s the perfect time to post a pretty sun filled garden. The garden in question located in Montecito, California also happens to belong to Oprah and has been recently featured in Veranda. I know quite a few people who live in this […]
