Aerin Lauder’s latest collection for Williams Sonoma Home has just launched and I think it might actually be better than her first. I love the addition of green to the blue and white mix and the new scalloped bedding. If you’re still trying to put your Easter table together or plan your spring and summer […]

Spring is taking it’s sweet time getting here and now it’s grey and rainy in New York. I am so ready for color and flowers and sunshine. Since that’s not happening, I figured this was a great time to revisit Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s family apartment filled with color and flowers put together in the most […]

Dreaming of Spring

01 . 29 . 18

There are 49 days until the official start of spring but we are really only a month away from warmer weather. Until then, I’m enjoying all shades of green from deep emerald to chartreuse and pale celadon like those in this Fifth Avenue apartment by Jeffrey Bilhuber. The pied-à-terre overlooking Central Park is featured in the January/February […]

The design world has been attending Maison & Objet for the last week. I’ve enjoyed following along on Instagram especially since it looks so much chicer than it did when I first attended in 2009. The booth that stood out this season is Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The deep green walls, floral fabric, and […]

Breath of Fresh Air

I was trying to figure out the exact reason I love Cameron Kimber’s weekend home that I posted yesterday. I think it’s because it feels like spring when everything in New York is encased in snow and cold temperatures. I especially love the thread of green that weaves its way through the entire house. I’ve […]

Bear Hill Bathroom

11 . 10 . 17

I have yet to visit Savannah but I may have to book a trip soon. The Traditional Home Southern Style Now Showhouse just opened in the Hostess City of the South and I’m seeing lots of beautiful rooms on Instagram like this chic bathroom by Kevin Walsh of Bear Hill Interiors. I love the glamorous mix of […]

This year marks my 10th year covering the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. It’s always the highlight of the spring social season and I was just as excited to tour the house this year as I was in 2007. I ran into Honorary Chair Bunny Williams on my way out and she was just as excited […]

When I was in Miami for Art Basel in December 2014, my friend and I drove up to Bar Harbor. Along the way, we passed a huge construction site for the Surf Club. My friend who I was with actually remarked that he owned a book Surf Club about the old club by Assouline. Well, […]

Waiting for Spring

03 . 26 . 17

Spring has definitely not spring in New York. It’s grey and rainy and nothing has bloomed yet. Until it does, I’m making due by living vicariously through those I follow on Instagram. Some reside in London and Paris which is busting with color and others are decorating their homes and tables with beautiful blooms. Enjoy! @kerrybazaar […]

In our over-connected online world, I’m always surprised when I come across a person, or two people in this case, from the past of whom I’ve never heard before. Such was the case of Boni de Castellane & Anna Gould sale at Christies in Paris on Monday, 6 March 2017.  “Boniface de Castellane, known as ‘Boni’ […]

You may remember my recent feature on Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s store KRB last month. Now One Kings Lane has a lovely feature on her family apartment on the Upper East Side. I’ve also included a few photos from her cover feature from Elle Decor in 2015. The best thing about the OKL story is that you […]

Not everyone can afford to hire the famed French interior designer and architect Jean-Louis Deniot to decorate their home but now you can experience his chic design style at the Hotel Nolinski in Paris. The soothing shades of greens and greys mixed with gold create a perfect respite after a day of exploring the City of […]

According to Bourne Creative, green is… “the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, is associated with meanings of growth, harmony, freshness, safety, fertility, and environment. Green is also traditionally associated with money, finances, banking, ambition, greed, jealousy, and wall street. The color green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful […]

A few weeks ago, I headed down to Birmingham, Alabama with Delta Faucet to tour the Southern Living Idea House for 2016. While the whole house was beautiful, the room that made the most impact was the gorgeous green kitchen and family room by local architect and interior designer Bill Ingram. It was inspired by a […]

Paris Meets Poland

07 . 11 . 16

When I first saw photos of this apartment, I thought it was in Paris. Turns out it is actually located in Warsaw and was gut renovated and designed by Marta Chrapka of Colombe Design for a French lawyer who was relocating to Poland. While the backdrop is neutral like a French apartment, there is a lot […]

The color that I kept seeing all over Italy during my fall 2015 trip was green. So it’s no wonder that Sawyer Berson‘s Italian inspired Petit Salon at the 2016 Kips Bay Decorator Show House is also green. It’s a nod to infinitely inspiring Villa Necchi in Milan which I also visited during my travels. The […]
