Carlos David Studio

04 . 08 . 21

My dear friend David Lawrence and I worked at the same design firm but not at the same time. We met almost 15 years ago after his Hamptons project was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful and I reposted it on the blog. The owner of that house, Nancy McCormick, also owns the […]

Last March seems to drag on forever but his March flew by and I can’t believe it’s April. I’m not really complaining though since it’s my birthday month and Central Park is finally starting to bloom. I plan to add a little color to my wardrobe with my favorite spring shades of lilac and lavender. […]

I’ve written about my Instagram friend Remy Renzullo before and he’s a name you will no doubt be seeing much more of in the future. His New York apartment, which he’s since moved out of, was featured in Architectural Digest last year and his London cottage has recently been published in House and Garden UK. […]

I didn’t get a green post together this week so it was perfect that this apartment with its green entry gallery was posted on Architectural Digest today. The Upper East Side home belongs to architect Gil Schafer and his wife interior designer Courtnay Daniels and her two children from her previous marriage. It’s as classic […]

I’m always in awe of women who started their own companies when most women weren’t even working outside of the home. Loretta Caponi earned how to embroider at the age of nine and opened her boutique in Florence in 1967. Her signature nightgowns made of cotton, linen, and silk and later table linens and bedding […]

My Instagram friend Julien Devergnies @_percaline_ recently posted that his apartment in Brussels, Belgium that he shares with his partner Nicolas Woit was published in The World of Interiors in July 2018. I’m not sure what I was doing then but I completely missed it. I love following Julien because we have a similar aesthetic […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think the mark of a great designer is someone who can make me like a design style that is not my personal favorite. Interior designer Martin Brûlé has created the chicest Art Deco abode in a building that did not have many redeeming interior architectural […]

I can’t believe we are nearing the year mark of the start of this pandemic. As we are still spending time at home, I’ve been trying to refresh my apartment with a few new things for spring. I just ordered a new robe and towels and if you need anything, I highly recommend the H&M […]

Deeda Blair: Part Deux

02 . 22 . 21

I had a great response to my first Deeda Blair post about her elegance and New York apartment and I’m following it up with a look at her Georgetown home. She and her late husband William Blair purchased the 1930s red brick Georgian home in the late 1960s when Mr. Blair “was named the first […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about elegance lately. Propriety is another thing that’s been on my mind due to thirst trap photos and Generation Z telling us where we can part our hair. As Justin Sylvester said today, “Why should we take advice from kids who are still on their parent’s family plan?” Why are […]

For Sale: Denbigh Farm

02 . 08 . 21

It’s always interesting when a real estate listing doesn’t include any interior photos. It usually means that they are in very bad shape or that the owner wants them to remain private. I suspect it’s the latter in case of Denbigh Farm in Greenwich, Connecticut which is currently for sale by Susie Hilfiger for $40 […]

The third Monday in January is always designated as Blue Monday. It’s a day when holiday celebrations are over, the weather is cold and dreary, and credit card bills for the gifts are due. It’s even harder this year with the pandemic and the recent insurrection. I’ve seen a lot of people post in the […]
