London based interior designer Virginia Howard has a project featured in the new April 2019 issue of House & Garden which led me to look for more of her work. I found her own London flat that also happened to be included in an old issue of House & Garden magazine. I’ve said it before […]

The Upper East Side is sometimes an under-appreciated neighborhood but those of us who live here understand how much it has to offer. James Hirschfeld, co-founder of Paperless Post, understood the appeal of the UES when looking for his first grown up apartment. “A lot of my friends have settled downtown or in Brooklyn, but […]

I was very saddened to hear that Sir John Richardson died today at the age of 95. I just received an advance copy of his new book John Richardson: At Home last week and I was hoping to meet him at a signing or attend a speaking engagement. His loss is sad because his level of […]

I noted on Instagram that we’re losing all the elegant ones this week and my friend Starrett followed up by saying, “It’s like elegance stood up this week, looked around, didn’t like the room […]

When I read in the new issue of Architectural Digest that Derek Blasberg moved to the Upper East Side, I was curious if he lived close to me. I’ve never seen him in the neighborhood but he travels so extensively that it wasn’t that surprising. A quick search not only revealed that he does live […]

I originally planned to just post Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment to show her interior design style but then I realized it wouldn’t tell the entire story of her design progression. So I made a deep dive into the archives and spent all day Sunday outlining them. Some of her rooms have become iconic and she […]
