I love a place that allows for one-stop shopping for the holidays and beloved-British brand, The White Company, is the perfect place to get gifts for everyone on your list this year. They offer elegant and affordable gifts for women, men, children, and home, as well as gift wrap, ribbon, tags, decorations, and more. The […]

There is nothing I find more overwhelming that creating gender and age specific holiday gift guides. Instead of doing it the way everyone else is doing it this year, I’ve decided to create a few favorite things gift guides inspired by Oprah. This one mixes gifts for everyone on your list so you can get […]

I wanted to begin my gift guides this year with some of my favorite things. (Yes, like Oprah but not as extensive.) These gift ideas could be for host/hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or items for anyone on your list, even yourself. There is no store as overwhelming in a good way like Fortnum & Mason […]

The Net-a-Porter sale has just begun and there are so many great pieces available for 50% off right now. I’ve put together a few of my favorites to get you started including the cable knit sweater above. Happy Shopping! Wool and mohair-blend wide-leg pants Aquazzara Loafers Tasseled Leather Shoulder Bag Oversized Duchesse Satin Coat Roksanda […]

The best thing about the end of the year, besides pumpkin pie and presents, are all the anticipated fall films that are about to be released. The best movies always come out around the holidays so they will be fresh in people’s minds when they consider films for Academy Awards nominations. Not sure if remake […]

If you’ve ever dreamed of having breakfast at Tiffany’s, you can now make it a reality. Well, only if you don’t mind standing in line for an hour two. Last week, I had the pleasure of experiencing the newly redesigned fourth floor of the Tiffany and Co. Fifth Avenue flagship store which offers home decor, […]

Veranda is one of the only magazines, if not the only one, to feature homes decorated for Christmas each year. I love seeing all the beautiful holiday decor in elegant interiors especially this one by Alidad in London. Of course, it helps to have rich red rooms as a backdrop but amaryllis and fruits would look […]

I met my friend David Lawrence after posting a house he designed in the Hamptons on the blog in 2008. The blue and white home was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful. We worked for the same designer but not at the same time and shared a love of beautiful things so of […]

The first time I met Starrett Ringbom was when she was working in public relations for Jonathan Adler. She was wearing a high waisted pair of vintage leather pants that belonged to her mother on a pouring down rainy day. I was dressed for the weather and did not look as chic. The first time I […]

I need to get a Christmas wreath this week but I have to wait on other decorations because I have back to back trips coming up and don’t want everything to die. If you need a little inspiration for your holiday decorations, this Montana mountain house that Ken Fulk designed that was featured in the […]

Families may have different traditions for Christmas and Hanukkah but Thanksgiving is all about turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. That means many hours will be spent in the kitchen. I’m still dreaming about renovating my tiny one and if you’re in the same boat, here’s some beautiful kitchens from Pinterest to inspire you. Happy Holidays! All images from […]

Memorial Day Meaning

05 . 24 . 15

While Memorial Day might mean summer sales, beach vacations, and barbecues to some people, it is actually a federal holiday meant to honor those who died in service to their country. Why don’t you take a minute to remember someone this weekend. “Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record […]

The day after I thought about asking my friend Alice Ryan Miller to contribute ideas for a children’s gift guide, she announced that she was pregnant with her third child with husband Kirk Miller. Talk about serendipity. Alice and Kirk have an precious six year old son Grey and an adorable two year old daughter […]

Since I’m currently traveling, I thought it would be appropriate to post the holiday travel gift guide.  When I was thinking of who I could ask to contribute their travel gift suggestions, Julia Leach, the founder of Chance was the first person who came to mind.  She always seems to be off somewhere and they only […]

I’ve slacked off on holiday gift guides for the past few years.  To make up for this, I’ve asked some of my favorite people to contribute gift guides in their area of expertise.  Some of them you will know and some will be an introduction but I guarantee you will love all of their choices.
