The Boss of Wu

02 . 13 . 14

You could tell something was up at the Hugo Boss by Jason Wu show today based on the front row. Diane Kruger, Reese Witherspoon, and Gwyneth Paltrow (photo by @bagsnob) were just down the row from Gerard Butler and Scott Eastwood.  The clothes that came down the runway won’t just appeal to celebrities though. They […]

New Paris Style

11 . 03 . 13

I remember seeing this apartment on the cover of the book New Paris Style but didn’t know the designer until today. It is the home of interior designer Florence Baudoux which is a Haussmann apartment of epic proportions. The entire space is painted grey and could be dark if it were not for the tall […]

Grey Days

10 . 09 . 13

As soon as the weather turns grey and chilly like today, I start pulling out my grey clothes.  It’s become my go since it’s less harsh than black and is the perfect complement to my hair color. As we know, it’s also a popular choice of paint color and plays well with almost every other […]

Intriguingly Chic

04 . 26 . 13

Sometimes you run across spaces that aren’t exactly your own personal style but are so full of intriguing details that you can help but be enamored by them.  That’s how I feel about this Paris apartment by Jean Louis Deniot.  I love the marble entry with jib door, the grey and gold color scheme, the […]

I sometimes go to stores not just for shopping but for inspiration.  Often the paint colors and decoration borrow from home design so it makes sense. The new Chloe store in Soho is one of my new inspiring stores.  The pale grey exterior had me at hello but the brass rails, shelves, and light fixtures […]

Bits and Bobs

01 . 10 . 13

Today was one of those days that took me in a million different directions.  I swear I’m going to get things together soon but until then, here are a few pics that I have gravitated toward this week. The Carolyne Roehm image above makes me wish I had a dining room so I could set […]

Grey Day

11 . 19 . 12

After four days of lovely weather in San Francisco, this grey Monday is a little depressing.  I’m not ready to be back in boots and tights and coats. As I’ve mentioned before, my winter wardrobe consists of various shades of grey.  It looks less harsh than all black but plays nicely with almost all other […]

50 Shades of Grey

10 . 03 . 12

You really didn’t think I could post about grey and not use that title right?  It rained all day yesterday in New York and this morning is foggy and gross.  Of course that got me thinking about my favorite non-color color, grey.  I love all the shades and how well it pairs with brown and […]

Study in Contrasts

05 . 22 . 12

Who says you have to decorate a contemporary building with clean, contemporary furniture?  Certainly not interior designer Alexa Hampton who designed a bedroom in this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House for Mark Hampton LLC that she herself describes as a “study in contrasts.” She also “we wanted to create a room that would be […]

Mellow Yellow and Grey

03 . 01 . 10

I’ve been hearing from a lot of readers that they miss hearing about my design projects. I completely understand and will definitely be posting about them again but not until after they are finished. A top design magazine editor just warned me again last week not to post any photos if I hope to get […]

Going Grey

11 . 21 . 08

I think I have found my all time favorite interior to date! The apartment belongs to Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa and his partner John De Stefano, a horse trainer and manager. It feels very European to me with a perfect mix of minimalism and interesting details. The couple didn’t use an interior designer but […]
