I’ve written about my Instagram friend Remy Renzullo before and he’s a name you will no doubt be seeing much more of in the future. His New York apartment, which he’s since moved out of, was featured in Architectural Digest last year and his London cottage has recently been published in House and Garden UK. […]

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 & […]

There is nothing that upsets me more than when someone buys an iconic or historic house and guts it, thus ruining what made it special. That’s why I was so astonished and happy to see that designer Francis Sultana kept the drawing room in the apartment that belonged to Fleur Cowles a similar beautiful shade […]

Paolo Moschino Chic

07 . 29 . 19

If I had to choose another interior designer to decorate for me, Paolo Moschino would be on the short list. He learned his trade under Nicky Haslam and even bought the Nicholas Haslam brand in 1995 which makes this a little confusing since Nicky Haslam is still decorating but under the NH Design moniker. But […]

You can’t grow up near Pittsburgh without hearing about the Heinz family although I wasn’t that familiar with Drue Heinz. She was philanthropist and supporter of writers who was married to Henry J. ‘Jack’ Heinz II and died lasts year at the age of 103. Her collection of art and antiques from her Sutton Place […]

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 […]

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 […]

Jet Setting Nina Flohr

09 . 17 . 18

One day this past April, I was getting ready to attend the press preview for the Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection auction at Christie’s. It was raining and I knew I would run into people I knew there and the Kips Bay Decorator Show House press preview on the same day so I wanted to […]

This very chic art collector’s apartment in Pimlico was featured in the December 2016 issue of House & Garden but I didn’t see it until this week. Better late than never because I love the mix of important furniture pieces and and art in a more masculine setting for a French private equity firm partner. […]

I enjoy following the travels of Julia Engel, her husband Thomas Berolzheimer, and their art director Dulci Edge, as they photograph each Gal Meets Glam Collection. The July collection launching today was shot in London in May during the Chelsea Flower Show. The whole city seemed to be bursting in bloom creating the perfect backdrop […]

Get Your Goat

05 . 24 . 18

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the first time as a newly married couple on Tuesday for a garden party celebrating the 70th birthday of the Duke of Wales. The Duchess was perfectly on point as a new royal in her custom blush colored Goat Flavia Dress. The dress was on sale and […]

Annabel’s London

05 . 21 . 18

Most private clubs have a strict “no photos” policy. I was so afraid of getting my hosts kicked out of 5 Hertford in London that I didn’t dare pull out my camera, not even in the loo. Now, the pink ladies lounge of Annabel’s club is the most posted room on Instagram and the entire club […]

Royal Garden Party

05 . 17 . 18

Are you going to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on Saturday?  I’ll definitely be watching but it’s a shame her family drama is overshadowing the big day. It will be too wet in New York to throw a royal garden party to celebrate, but I’ve put together some lovely items […]

Spring in England

05 . 16 . 18

While New York seems to be in the middle of a rainy season, England seems to be enjoying a beautiful spring. I know this from Instagram so I thought it would be fun to post my favorite photos in honor of the upcoming royal wedding. Enjoy! @benpentreath @eugeniaexplores @alexander.hoyle @amandacbrooks @alexander.hoyle @mrsalice @alexander.hoyle @meanderingmacaron @mccormickcharlie […]

I’ve professed my love for The Fold before but I haven’t needed them more than I do this spring. I have parties and events every night this week and next and I’m trying to plan out my outfits. The Fold has the best dresses and separates that perfectly transition from day to night for women […]

Cliveden House

02 . 02 . 18

Editors from London have been enjoying a press trip to Cliveden House for Sarah Chapman skincare. I’ve known about Cliveden House but I thought it was just a historic house managed by the National Trust and didn’t realize it’s also a hotel and spa. Cliveden House is an Italianate manor house located about 45 minutes […]

Veranda is one of the only magazines, if not the only one, to feature homes decorated for Christmas each year. I love seeing all the beautiful holiday decor in elegant interiors especially this one by Alidad in London. Of course, it helps to have rich red rooms as a backdrop but amaryllis and fruits would look […]
