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 […]

Sears Cottage

Some of you might remember that my friend Grant Gibson spends time in Maine every summer. I asked him today if he still planned to go since they have a two week quarantine for anyone coming into the state. I have read they might change this since most of the businesses in the state depend […]

You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged in a week. I don’t think I’ve gone this long in the entire 13 years I’ve been blogging and I’m not even exactly sure why, although I’m sure that twelve weeks of quarantine is definitely taking a toll. Joe Holder, an insanely in shape personal trainer who […]

Since it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to go out to the Hamptons or anywhere else this summer, I am starting to think about lightening up my home decor for warmer weather. It’s time to put away the velvet pillows and cashmere throw blankets and swap them with lighter linen and cotton […]

Perfect Panacea

It looks like things won’t open up in New York in time to allow me to make my annual June trip to Sag Harbor. I’m sad but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we won’t be able to travel for awhile. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through the East Hampton home of Kate Rheinstein […]

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 & […]

One good thing to come out of quarantine is that we get to see more photos of people’s home since they have nothing else to Instagram. One of my longtime favorite accounts @lacarliere highlights the 15th & 17th century Normandy manor house belonging to @petercopping  @rambertfleurs and their two pretty Siamese cats. I had a […]

One of the biggest questions after when will this end is when can we travel again. I don’t think we’ll be able to travel Europe again until late fall or possibly even next year but when we can, you may want to put Venice at the top of your must visit list. There you can […]

There is nothing I find more vulgar that people who redecorate their home just so they can have it published again. If it’s done right the first time, you should never have to do it again. Such was the case with the Fifth Avenue apartment of Susan Gutfreund and her late husband John that was […]

In 2012, Andy Cohen asked Meryl Streep on Watch What Happens Live, “Name one bad film that you have made.” Her answer was, “Still of the Night” a film in 1982 in which she co-stared with Roy Schieder and re-teamed her with her Kramer vs. Kramer director Robert Benton. It wasn’t an Oscar contender but I enjoy the […]

While quarantine has been hard for everyone, there are some bright spots. Photographer François Halard is holed up at his house in Arles and posts a photo of a room or a vignette every day. He’s on day 27 now and I look forward to each and every one of his images. His house is […]

My tolerance for certain Instagram accounts during quarantine is very low. I’ve already had to unfollow or mute many accounts. One of the accounts I will never unfollow belongs to antiques dealer Gerald Bland. I love his unpretentious approach to social media. Most of his posts are his house upstate and very few even include […]
