Jamie Drake‘s “We Love Print” library for the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Show House is a room to retreat to and enjoy turning the pages of real printed books. It too features green walls made up of horizontal planks that were loosely inspired by paneled rec rooms from the 1950’s and 60’s. The mirrored walls […]

I have a weakness for a spring chartreuse-y green color and Todd Alexander Romano‘s room is punctuated with fabulous pops of the color against aubergine walls. Not sure if you can tell in the photos but there is even an aubergine trim from Samuel & Sons along the edge French Empire chair upholstery. You […]
Thom Filicia wins my award for the best design of a small space at the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I’m not even sure it can technically be considered a room since it barely has any walls. It’s more like a foyer between the entry, dining room, living room, and hall back to the […]
Last April at High Point Market, it was 90 degrees and we were all sweating to death. This April, it was cold and rainy so we were all shivering. This is part of the reason that I didn’t make it to as many showrooms as usual. But I did see a lot of great things […]
“When after the Winter alarmin’, The Spring steps in so charmin’, So fresh and arch In the middle of March, Wid her hand St.Patrick’s arm on…” – Alfred Percival Graves
Every time I see a green interior like the ones in The Rug Company collage above, it makes me want to completely redecorate. I also don’t think I wear enough green. I do have a big green cocktail ring but maybe I need a pair of army green pants or a bright green blouse. Something […]
If I do choose a color scheme for next Christmas, I might also consider varying shades of green mixed with white or silver. The strategically placed pears look pretty chic too. Happy Holidays!
There is a great article in the September issue of Vogue about the return to color in women’s wardrobes. It also mentioned the trend of red pants that started during New York Fashion Week last February. Based on the amount of green I saw recently, I have a feeling that green may be the new […]
After seeing Grant K. Gibson’s beautiful Fiddle Leaf Fig tree, I have always wanted one. Somewhere along the way, I heard that they don’t do well in New York. While shopping for a tree in the Flower District, I learned that this information was just a myth. You can own a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree […]
I took over 700 photos at High Point Market and wasn’t quite sure where to begin. So I decided to start with the smallest but chicest showroom, BeeLine Home by Bunny Williams. Unlike many furniture shows, most of the exhibitors at High Point have permanent showrooms. That means they have real walls in which to […]
The 2011 Golden Globes last night were a feast of fashionable frocks and handsome men. I’m happy to see the stylists also got my memo regarding green. I think Catherine Zeta Jones in Monique Lhuillier and Elisabeth Moss from Mad Men in Donna Karen knocked it out of the park. Mila Kunis looked perfect in […]
Big thanks to my friend Sarah at Rice and Beans Vintage for alerting me to the fact that Stella McCartney was also feeling green. Her 2011 pre-fall collection is full of emerald green mixed with navy and even gray. Maybe Pantone should call me before they choose their color for 2012! Green is definitely good!
I thought it was interesting that Pantone chose Honeysuckle, a pink shade, as their Color of the Year for 2011. The color that keeps catching my attention in both fashion and design is green. It ranges from peacock to emerald but looks elegant and interesting in every shade. I already bought a satin envelope clutch […]
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m posting all my favorite green images. And what better place to start than with a bar since most everyone will spend the day drinking. Not just any bar mind you but the cameo Bar at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica designed by Kelly Wearstler. Kelly said she […]
