I’m going to be honest, I don’t love Miami but I’ll take warm weather where ever I can get it in in the middle of winter. I’m not into the nightclub scene though so I try to find outings that appeal to my more refined aesthetics which is why I love Vizcaya Museum and Gardens […]

As you know, I travel a lot. I’ve stayed in every conceivable type of hotel from tiny boutiques to five star resorts. I’ve experienced the best and the worst that the hotel industry could dream up. I’ve been known to move furniture and obsess over design details that I wish I could change. I can […]

I’m back in New York and can honestly say I’m freezing after spending six days in warm and sunny Miami. The first part of the trip was a press trip to Art Basel with La Prairie and then I stayed the weekend at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel on Brickell Key which is conveniently located a […]

When I was in Miami for Art Basel in December 2014, my friend and I drove up to Bar Harbor. Along the way, we passed a huge construction site for the Surf Club. My friend who I was with actually remarked that he owned a book Surf Club about the old club by Assouline. Well, […]

Miami Nice

12 . 07 . 14

I’m back from Art Basel but battling a nasty cold.  Makes me wish I had stayed in sunny and warm Miami.  While I rest up and recover, I’m leaving you with a few pics of my trip. But I will have another lovely gift guide for you on Monday morning.

As someone who studied art history, I obviously have a love of everything artistic.  I will admit that even I don’t understand some contemporary art though. My visit to Art Basel has opened my eyes to many new artists and galleries.  I hope to recap my trip soon and introduce you to some of what […]

I arrived in Miami to find 80 degree temperatures and the nicest people at the new Miami Beach Edition Hotel.  I stayed at their other hotel in London so I was excited to see how they tweaked the design for this edition. The wood and upholstery are lighter and the room feels brighter. They give […]

Off to Art Basel

12 . 02 . 14

I’m off to Miami this morning for Art Basel.  It’s my first time attending and I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about. From what I hear it’s more about the parties than the actual art but I will let you know. I’m excited to be staying at the new Miami Beach […]

Miami Makeover

03 . 11 . 12

My friend D. (he asked me not to use his name) just bought a condo in Miami and asked for a little design advice.  Since he reads my blog, he knows that I have access to a multitude of images for inspiration and that I love a design challenge. His only directive was that he […]

Since we have a few inches of snow on the ground in New York, I thought this might be a good time to post about warm and sunny Miami!  After the cruise docked, Stefan and I headed to the Design District in Downtown Miami.  In addition to furniture showrooms, the Design District is home to some […]

Chic Ship Interiors

02 . 14 . 11

A few readers commented that they were impressed by the decor of our room on the Marina.  They weren’t expecting it to look so nice.  If you thought that was impressive, wait until you see the public areas and restaurants.  Oceania Cruises bills themself as mid-luxury but after to speaking with the designers, it was clear […]

This cold weather is definitely making me wish I was still sailing on the Marina.  I don’t think Stefan and I could have had a better first cruise experience and we owe it all to Oceania Cruises.  This was an inaugural christening cruise and there was copious amounts of music, dancing, champagne, fireworks, sunshine, and […]
