As most of us finish up our second month of home confinement, I wonder how many people are currently reevaluating the decor of their houses. I certainly wouldn’t want to live with anything that I truly didn’t love. One person who looks quite happy with his living arrangements is legendary decorator Robert Kime. House & […]

London based interior designer Virginia Howard has a project featured in the new April 2019 issue of House & Garden which led me to look for more of her work. I found her own London flat that also happened to be included in an old issue of House & Garden magazine. I’ve said it before […]

Oakley Manor

01 . 07 . 19

I was chatting with someone recently about how it may be freezing in New York in the winter but at least we get a lot of bright sunny days that make it a bit less depressing. That’s not the case for most of Europe so I was wondering if grey winter weather was the reason […]

Ven House Now and Then

12 . 17 . 18

House & Garden has a lovely holiday feature on Ven House, in the December 2018 issue. It’s in the article that you learn that the house has had a succession of owners in recent years and been previously featured in World of Interiors in October 2011 when it was owned by Jasper Conran and in […]

Pitshill House

11 . 28 . 18

As you know, I love a good English home and this one is a show stopper. Of course, Pitshill wasn’t that way before interior designer Edward Bulmer renovated the Georgian house for its owners the Hon Charles Pearson and his wife Lila. You can see the state it was in before he began from the before photos […]

Chic Family Rectory

10 . 25 . 18

While I love English manor houses, they aren’t exactly practical for most people which is why I love rectories, vicarages, and parsonages. They are the smaller homes that were reserved for members of the clergy located next to the local church. Since they are a more manageable size, they are usually more relatable and offer […]

This very chic art collector’s apartment in Pimlico was featured in the December 2016 issue of House & Garden but I didn’t see it until this week. Better late than never because I love the mix of important furniture pieces and and art in a more masculine setting for a French private equity firm partner. […]

Bamboo Beach House

01 . 30 . 18

It’s snowing again in New York which means it’s the perfect time to think about planning a warm weather trip. It’s also a great time to post a very cool bamboo beach house in Mustique by Veere Grenney. I don’t remember seeing this retreat when it was featured in House & Garden in January 2016. […]

Modern Country House

08 . 07 . 17

Veere Grenney is one of my favorite interior designers so it was nice to see this modern country house project of his on the House & Garden UK site recently. Again, it’s one of those homes that mixes traditional design and architecture with modern touches to keep each one of the owners happy. Not an […]

The more I look at Twitter, the more I realize we all need pretty pictures now more than ever. I came across this beautiful London home of Lady Wakefield on the House & Garden UK site and it’s a breath of fresh air. I love how the light and airy main rooms are complemented by the […]

Hampshire Vicarage

09 . 26 . 16

A vicarage in England has traditionally been the residence of the vicar or parish priest. They’ve since become home to lay people and many interior designers. Since they are much smaller than a typical English manor home, they lend themselves to a more relaxed and comfortable style. While I was on the House & Garden UK […]

I had the pleasure of attending a dinner party for Bonpoint in a gorgeous West Village townhouse last year. (You can see the photos in my post Beautiful Bonpoint Dinner.) Now you can see the rest of the six-story home of Annabel and Jos White thanks to House & Garden magazine. The sitting room furniture was […]
