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 […]

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 […]
