I enjoy following the Instagram account of Marna De la Orden who is the co-founder of Maria de la Orden which is a fashion and accessory line of “unique looks designed between Paris and Madrid in eco-friendly and original fabrics” with very reasonable prices. Her style is much more colorful than mine which I found […]

My Recent Etsy Finds

07 . 06 . 21

In the past year, I’ve found myself buying much more from Etsy. There are so many lovely and creative people running their entire companies on the platform and offering great prices. I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]

Now that we can go places again, I’ve been trying to check off some of the places I have been wanting to explore in New York. Last Friday, I took a field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum which is the oldest building in the borough of the Bronx and run by the National […]

Last Thursday, I attended my first event since before the pandemic. It was a beautiful dinner to celebrate the launch of The Virginia Collection, a tableware inspired by Virginia, where Cece Barfield Thompson quarantined during the pandemic. The table for the dinner was set with all the pieces she designed including embroidered linens, porcelain hand-painted […]

I apologize for the lack of blog posts since last week. Hopefully, this one will make up for it. I spent the cold and rainy long holiday weekend falling down rabbit holes after searching for more information on a certain hotel particulier in Paris. More on that later. But while I was searching, I came […]

No one renovates Sag Harbor houses better than Steven Gambrel and a house he designed from the ground up at 52 Glover Street has just come on the market for $6,995,000. Considering that it’s turnkey ready and within very easy walking distance Main Street, makes it a pretty good deal. If you’re not convinced, you […]

I always pass by this townhouse at 46 East 73rd Street on my walk to Madison Avenue and Central Park. I’ve long admired the glossy black door and topiaries so when the holiday decorations from 2019 stayed up for all of last year, I decided to investigated who owned it. Turns out that it’s Gayfryd […]

It feels like Chairish is the new One Kings Lane. I used to love the house features and interviews on OKL but they were long gone so it’s nice to see some on the Chairish Blog now. Lauren Santo Domingo of Moda Operandi was just profiled and we get to see a few new spaces […]

Lovely Lilacs at Home

05 . 15 . 21

I haven’t bought lilacs yet this spring but after seeing so many beautiful bouquets on Instagram, I think it’s going to be the first thing I do tomorrow. I especially love the arrangement above that Kate Brodsky recently received for Mother’s Day. These were the lilacs I bought and arranged last year. In order to […]

One of the most exciting collaborations of fashion and design is launching for VIP customers early and then to the general public on Tuesday, May 11th. Schumacher fabrics are gracing five classic shoe styles from Margaux. I was lucky to be sent the Ballet Mule and I just ordered the the Demi Ballet Flat. They […]

Everyone who saw the renovated 19th-century farmhouse of Luis Laplace and his partner Christophe Comoy on the island of Menorca in the WSJ. Magazine this weekend immediately fell in love. It’s probably because we haven’t been able to travel to abroad in over a year but it’s also because it doesn’t look overdone or too […]

Interior designer Todd Alexander Romano has always been a favorite of mine. I posted his New York apartment early on when I started blogging and his beautiful room for the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Show House and followed his subsequent apartment moves. Now Todd is splitting his time between a historic 18th-century house in Newport, […]

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.”–  Edwin Way Teale

I loved seeing Suzanne Rheinstein‘s Montecito house in Architectural Digest but I didn’t realize what a major renovation she undertook until I saw the old real estate listing photos and before photos. The architecture firm, Bories and Shearron, who worked on the house with Suzanne posted some of the before photos of the house built […]

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. […]

It’s finally warmed up and I’m ready to lighten up my wardrobe and my apartment for spring, I’ve put together the chicest bags, furniture, and accessories in wicker, raffia, and straw to change up your outfits and interiors. I bought this Celine Medium Triomphe Basket Bag last year right before quarantine. It was my birthday […]
