I really don’t like design shows on television. If I see one more messy house or piece of painted plywood furniture, I’m going to go postal! That’s why I was excited to hear that some of our favorite designing divas are currently shooting a pilot for what they are touting as a “chic design reality […]

Slow Love

05 . 06 . 10

I had the pleasure of attending the book party last night for Slow Love: How I Lost My Job, Put On My Pajamas & Found Happiness by Dominique Browning and I suggest that you immediately buy this sweet read. For those of you who don’t know, Ms. Browning was editor in chief of House & […]

I love going through my old magazines. Sometimes you discover something you missed the first time around. Other times you realize that you’ve met the person whose home you’re looking at. While I’ve never met photographer Carter Smith, I do admire his photographs every month in Allure magazine and while looking through the January 2007 […]

Cordelia Times Deux

11 . 02 . 09

When I first saw Cordelia de Castellane in her Paris apartment in the April 2009 issue of Elle Decor, I thought she looked familiar. She was featured in her old apartment in the March 2007 issue of House & Garden magazine. I remembered her because I posted some of the photos from that feature shortly […]

I have made it a point to try to always be positive on my blog but this week I’m having a hard time, especially after the news about House and Garden. While I would never negatively critique someone else’s decorating style, I feel that in light of this week’s discussion about shelter magazines in the […]

Say It Isn’t So!

11 . 05 . 07

So, as if my weekend wasn’t bad enough, I just learned today from two different sources that House and Garden magazine is folding! Conde Nast is closing the magazine due to the departure of the editor and chief, Dominique Browning, and poor ad sales . I’m really sad. House and Garden has improved so much […]

Chic at Aquavit

10 . 10 . 07

After I posted about Stockholm last week, it was funny to open my November issue of House and Garden magazine and see a profile of Marcus Samuelsson, the chef and co-owner of the fabulous Scandinavian restaurant in New York, Aquavit. Marcus’ life story is almost as interesting as his cuisine. He was born in Ethiopia […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, I love photography and always check the photography credits in magazines. Another favorite photographer of mine is Eric Cahan. You may not have heard of his name but you have surely seen his work. He recently shot Patricia Herrera Lansing and Carolyn Murphy for House and Garden which I […]

I have to say, the November 2007 issue of House and Garden magazine is already one of my all time favorites. It might be because it’s all about New York with fabulous interiors of fabulous people or it could be because I was granted access to a behind the scenes look at the Gwyneth Paltrow […]

I’m much too busy to write a proper post today. Truth be told, I’m actually a wee bit hung-over so I thought it would be best if I didn’t write whilst popping Advil and hoping that my headache finally subsides. But, I did want to tell you that I am working on a super fabulous […]
