It’s raining in New York so it feels like the perfect time to escape virtually to Provence to take a look at Les Ramades, the Provence home of Betty and François Catroux. It was on the market last year for $11.5 Million because François wanted to be near the sea and had bought a place […]

Perfect Panacea

05 . 12 . 20

It looks like things won’t open up in New York in time to allow me to make my annual June trip to Sag Harbor. I’m sad but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we won’t be able to travel for awhile. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through the East Hampton home of Kate Rheinstein […]

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 […]

Le Jardinier

06 . 05 . 19

The French are spoiled with restaurants designed by architect Joseph Dirand and now New York can experience his work while dining at Le Jardinier at 610 Lexington Avenue in one of developer Aby Rosen‘s newest building. The light and airy space is filled with shades of cream and green that looks like a breath of […]

It feels like winter again in New York but if you decorated as colorfully as interior designer Meg Braff, it can feel like spring all year long. Her new Locust Valley house is featured in the new May/June 2019 issue of Veranda and it looks like a ray of sunshine. Meg is originally from Mississippi […]

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 […]

I originally planned to just post Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment to show her interior design style but then I realized it wouldn’t tell the entire story of her design progression. So I made a deep dive into the archives and spent all day Sunday outlining them. Some of her rooms have become iconic and she […]

When legendary interior designer Mario Buatta died last year, His last project was just published in Architectural Digest so this seems like the perfect time to remember the cheeky and talented designer. I remember sitting next to him at a dinner at least 10 years ago and being unaware of what was in store for […]

If interior designer Billy Ceglia can make a motley crew of assorted spaces in the Kips Bay Show House Palm Beach look good, imagine what he can do in a whole house. He was assigned the downstairs back hallway, a bathroom that is the public restroom for the house, a small mudroom, the back staircase, a […]

The holidays are upon us and that means lots of events and parties. There is no better place to shop for dresses, outfits, and accessories than Ann Taylor. They really have everything you could possibly need whether that means getting very dressed up or just entertaining at home. The fact that Ann Taylor also carries […]

It’s rainy and cold this morning. Perfect day to stay in bed, especially a bedroom as cozy and warm looking as interior designer Andrew Brown‘s redecorated space. Andrew recently participated in The Schumacher Challenge in which he updated his bedroom using fabrics and wallcoverings from their Orient Express Collection. He upholstered the walls in a […]

You have to bear with me because I’m still only a third of the way through Bunny Mellon: The Life of an American Style Legend book so she’s constantly on my mind lately. This along with the feature on her Antigua home purchased by Tory Burch that I posted yesterday has me thinking about her decorating […]
