When I lived in Paris, I spent one of the three months living next to the Palais-Royal. I loved escaping the hustle and bustle of the city in the quiet garden inside surrounded by elegant boutiques and restaurants. Along the rue de Beaujolais and through the Passage du Perron is a plaque that says, Colette, […]

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days. I had planned to blog while I was on Nantucket but then I got too busy and decided to just take some time off. I look forward to sharing photos of my trip and a travel guide soon but until then, how about some beautiful […]
Jacques Grange is one the world’s most exclusive interior designers. He started his career under Henri Samuel and honed his craft under Didier Aaron before going on to decorate for his own clients which include Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Paloma Picasso, Terry de Gunzburg, Valentino, Sofia Coppola, Aerin Lauder, and Lauren Santo Domingo […]
I don’t usually like theme weeks but I have warm weather on the brain this week. It’s partially due to the arctic weather this past weekend and my upcoming trip to Grand Cayman on Thursday. Although, I wish I was visiting Portugal after seeing Christian Louboutin‘s house on the coast. It actually reminds me a […]
While I was in Peru, my friend David Lawrence posted Instagram photos from The Row‘s new store at 17 East 71st Street in New York. Lucky for me, it’s located in my neighborhood on the Upper East Side and I can’t wait to stop by this week. As you know, there is nothing I love more […]
If you’ve ever used a Touche Eclat highlighter pen from YSL, then you already know Terry de Gunzburg. She created the iconic pen while she was creative director of Yves Saint Laurent Beauté. In 2001, she founded her own beauty company By Terry that is poised to become the next global beauty brand. The London […]
I uploaded these photos before I left for Paris but forgot to actually write anything or post it. In all honesty, jet lag is rearing it’s ugly head. Or at least that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I actually posted these photos of designer Jacques Grange’s apartment in the Palais Royal a few […]
Warmer weather doesn’t just mean lighten up your wardrobe. It’s also a great time to lighten up your decor. There is nothing that says summer like wicker, rattan, bamboo, and other natural fiber furniture. It’s not just for outside or beach houses either. As you can see from these examples, it looks pretty great everywhere. […]
This is my last Jacques Grange post. I swear. But I couldn’t post about his guest houses in Portugal without sharing the one that he actually uses while on holiday. This one is definitely my favorite and the day bed is going in my beach house folder immediately. It’s perfection.
If yesterday’s guest house on Jacques Grange’s property wasn’t your style, maybe this one will be more to your liking. I love all the fabulous striped cotton rugs and textiles. But I probably wouldn’t even see them because I’d be sitting outside on one of the chic rattan chairs all day. A girl can dream.
“Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.” – William James August is when most Europeans take a month long holiday. I envy them and vow each year to do the same. It hasn’t quite happened yet […]
As I sit at my desk trying to work while workers across the street peer into my window, I dream about the day when I have my own office. Until then, I’m going to continue to drool over Aerin Lauder’s new Jacques Grange designed oasis of chic featured in the June 2012 issue of Architectural […]
