If you follow Ashley Stark on Instagram, you may have seen her weekly posts on the status of her family’s townhouse renovation. Once the house got closer to completion, the posts stopped which was a sure sign that it would be featured in a magazine. And not just any magazine. The townhouse which was gut […]

British fashion designer Peter Copping mentioned to me a few months back that he and his French husband Rambert Rigaud were creating a home line named after their beloved 15th-century manor house in Normandy. La Carlière has just been featured in the Financial Times How to Spend It and it’s just as good as I suspected. The […]

During quarantine, I would often have insomnia and wake up at 3:00am and doomscroll Instagram. One of the accounts that helped me relax belonged to Jasper Conran in Dorset, England. He would post videos of his morning walk with his dog Minnow which were incredibly beautiful and relaxing and brought me so much comfort. That’s […]

I wrote about philanthropist and art collector Jayne Wrightsman who died April 2019 at the age of 99 and her home at 820 Fifth Avenue last fall. Mrs. Wrightman was a scholar of 18th-century art and furniture and had an eye for the best pieces. Now many of her furnishings and art will be sold at Christie’s October […]

There is nothing I love more than a before and after, especially when it’s the home of someone with impeccable taste. Architectural Digest just published the recently redecorated Greenwich Village apartment of architect Gil Schafer online. He had the in-house interiors department give the pied-à-terre a slightly more contemporary feel which included lightening the walls […]

I came across some new photos of fashion designer Michael Bastian‘s downtown apartment recently and I was reminded how much I love his living room. It reminds me of the male equivalent of my art filled space except I don’t have a fireplace. There is something about it that always reminded me of autumn so […]

I perfectly happy planning my Upstate and New England trips until I saw this Canoneta Orchard Townhouse for sale in Sóller, Mallorca. It was designed by Berrow Projects which was founded in 2016 by Archie and Monty Berrow who fell in love with the architecture and natural beauty of Sóller and saw an opportunity to […]

If you don’t subscribe to The Bulletin from Schumacher, you are missing out. Luckily, some stories can be found online like the wonderful feature on the chic garden and guest house of designer Stephen Sills in Bedford, New York. I forgot how much I appreciate the elegant and impeccable style of Stephen Sills. His work […]

As I’ve mentioned before, it’s hard to feel inspired to blog when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. New York just cancelled all large events that require a permit through September which means no fashion week or design events that make autumn in the city so exciting. I’m going to try to plan a […]

I recently learned that there are Seastreak ferries from New York to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. They take five to six hours and you can’t bring a car but you can remain socially distant outside. I will probably just take my chances with the easy one hour flight from LaGuardia to Nantucket but will consider […]

Summer by the Sea

07 . 06 . 20

The Coronavirus crisis caused many companies to get creative. Ralph Lauren Home tapped photographer Matt Albiani to photograph their summer collection at his house Sea Roost in Montauk. I stayed at Sea Roost last year and can attest that it was the perfect backdrop for nautically inspired tableware and Aran sweater inspired blankets and pillows […]

Sag Harbor Stunner

06 . 29 . 20

I always look at real estate listings when I visit Sag Harbor. When I was trying to find a certain house, I came across photos of another house on Main Street that I pass multiple times each day when I walk to and from Baron’s Cove. This one is not for sale but it was […]
