I was saddened to hear of the death of legendary French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy this past weekend at the age of 91. The world has not only lost an immense talent but I remarkable human being full of elegance and grace. I came across a wonderful interview he gave to How to Spend […]

The most anticipated event each spring in New York is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I’ve been covering the house since I started my blog in 2007 and it’s my favorite event to share with you.
