We’ve had some beautiful weather this October and I made sure I went out for walks on all the sunny days. It was so nice to see so many homeowners and businesses decorate for fall and Halloween. The city is bustling and seems back to normal which feels so good. I can’t wait to see […]

October in New York

10 . 28 . 19

This has been one of the nicest Octobers I can remember in New York. I’ve taken as many walks as possible to enjoy the sunshine and take photographs. Luckily, there seemed to be less gross Halloween decorations this year and more elegant seasonal decor. Here are some of my favorites from the Upper East Side […]

If you’ve ever taken a walk on the Upper East Side or West Village during October, you’ll see houses with over the top decorations for Halloween. Some are so scary that I avoid during certain streets during this time of year. I personally prefer chicer home decor and tabletop pieces that can transition from Halloween […]

There is nothing I love more than taking long walks in the West Village and the Upper East Side to photograph seasonal decorations. The autumn doors this year were some of the best. Enjoy! “I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves.” – Ann Drake Photos […]

  Wishing you all a safe and fun Halloween weekend! XOXO, HC

I’ve visited Paris in September when it was still summer and also in November when it looked and felt like winter but I’ve never visited Paris in the height of autumn. After my trip last week, I now want to plan a trip for every October. It was even more beautiful than spring. But while they […]

All Hallows Eve

10 . 30 . 14

New York is all dressed up for autumn and Halloween right now. The Upper East Side gets very into decorating for Halloween and some of the decorations are seriously scary. I prefer the chic and subtle approach and thought I would share some of my favorites with you as well as some turning leaves. Happy […]

Happy Halloween

In the midst of all the hubbub in New York, I forgot that it’s Halloween.  I hope those of you in areas not affected by the hurricane can enjoy this usually happy holiday.  Helene Rochas in a Bat Mask

Calm Before the Storm

Since we’re about to be hunkered down at home for the next two days, I’m glad I was able to get out and about recently. I saw a lot of great decorations and preparations for Halloween as well as beautiful changing leaves.  Hope they don’t get ruined by hurricane Sandy and you all stay safe […]

Gothic Splendor

I have a love/hate relationship with Halloween.  I love the fun aspects and of course the candy but I hate the slutty costumes that have become the norm.  It’s also too bad that you rarely see elegant and chic Halloween decorations.  This spread of D.L. & Co. appeared in an old House & Garden magazine […]
