Serena Fresson posted a beautifully set spring table on Instagram this morning which made me think it was the perfect time to highlight her chic style. Serena is the mother of Alice Naylor-Leyland who I recently featured in the post Alice in Wonderland. It’s clear that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in […]

Fustic House

03 . 22 . 16

While I was reading the Tory Burch Blog, I saw that they photographed their Spring/Summer 2016 Look Book at Fustic House in Barbados. The gorgeous 17th-century sugar plantation was renovated by designer Oliver Messel in the 1970’s and is now available to rent for a Caribbean holiday.  On first view, the exterior looks like a house you […]

While I’m in California today, my mind is on Italy. I’m taking over the Farrow & Ball Instagram account today to highlight all the green I saw in on my autumn trip to celebrate their nine new colours including my favorite Yeabridge Green. The Wes Anderson designed Bar Luce in the Fondazione Prada in Milan had […]

I cleaned out more stacks of magazines this weekend. This included the sacrilegious task of getting rid of old issues of World of Interiors.  If I had the room, I’d keep them forever but it’s much easier to refer to the back issues online where they take up no space in ones apartment. In the November […]

Green is Good

07 . 23 . 15

As I mentioned, I’m getting ready for an exciting photo shoot of my apartment. I’ve been trying to make some changes so it won’t be boring for you.  I’ve also been looking back at some of my favorite interiors for inspiration. I’ve posted Cameron Kimber‘s old home in Sydney before but it still looks so […]

A little package of green lettuce plates arrived this week and they were the perfect pick me up for this never ending winter.  The plates are Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch and are part of a whole collection of pieces. Dodie Thayer, The Pottery Queen of Palm Beach, originally started molding her Lettuce Ware pieces by […]

Green is Good

I had the pleasure of dining at The Polo Bar which is connected to the new Polo Ralph Lauren  store on Fifth Avenue last evening. The food was fabulous and the interior was as chic as expected, if not better.  While I loved all the equestrian paintings and polo memorabilia, it was the green tile […]

Holiday at Home

12 . 23 . 14

I enjoy reading Tory Daily, the blog on designer Tory Burch‘s website, especially when it includes photos of her entertaining at home. Everyone loves her New York apartment but it looks even more beautiful when it’s decorated for Christmas.  The green living room walls are the perfect backdrop and adds to the festive look. I’ve […]

It has been pouring in Paris all day so I was happy to stay in my dry apartment and watch the Maison Valentino Haute Couture runway show via live feed.  The pre-show video feed was priceless but the actual show itself was heavenly.  I wish it had been ready to wear Valentino where there is […]

Emerald Isle

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, a little green inspiration and hope that spring won’t be far behind.  I love this dress and green bag on Maggie Betts via ELLE.  Chateau Marmont Hotel keys via Conde Nast Traveler. Cameron Diaz’s kitchen via Elle Decor.  Garden by Miranda Brooks.  via Elle Japan.  via Elle Decor Photo […]

Is It Spring Yet?!

02 . 11 . 14

This has been the coldest and snowiest winter I’ve ever experienced in New York and possibly in my entire life.  Needless to say, I am ready for Spring.  Heck, I’d take 40 degrees at this point.  Until that arrives, I’m going to keep looking at photos or gardens, flowers, and anything green to keep me […]

Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly…. – Pablo Neruda Photo by me via instagram

My malachite bowl giveaway was a good excuse to put together a post of more malachite and gorgeous green images.  You probably heard that Pantone recently named emerald green the color of 2013.  I feel like this was more of a reaction that a prediction.  Green has been a popular color for a while, so […]

How about a giveaway to lighten the mood?!  Hillary Thomas Designs and Chic Shop have generously offered to give one lucky reader one of their fabulous malachite bowls. I have one and can tell you that it really is chic. To enter to win the Medium Oval Malachite Bowl, please leave a comment with your […]

Chinoiserie Chic

12 . 04 . 12

As a follow up to my Griffin and Wong post, I thought I would post a little chinoiserie wallpaper inspiration.  I also learned more about the history of the wallpaper from their site and thought you might like to read it as well.  Chinese silk wallcoverings are one of the earliest global luxury products. Originally, […]

I have first hand experience with many of my blog sponsors which makes it easier for me to recommend them to you.  I dealt with Griffin and Wong when one of my design clients wanted chinoiserie wallpaper in her bedroom.  The project ended up going in a completely different direction but I loved working with […]

I live for the days when I find a new issue of Australia Vogue Living on the newsstand.  It’s always full of interesting and chic interiors and the September/October 2012 issue features my new favorite home.  I also found a few other pics on a blog that allow you to see a little more of […]
