I first posted the street style of Giorgia Tordini three years ago and it’s been interesting to see how her look has evolved over the past few years. I relate to her style because she doesn’t wear much pattern but always knows how to add one interesting piece that elevates her entire outfit. During Milan […]

Luca’s Lair

08 . 01 . 16

I Am Love is one of the most visually stunning films I’ve ever seen. Of course it helps that much of it is set in Villa Necchi in Milan. It’s no wonder that Luca Guadagnino, the filmmaker behind it and the new film A Bigger Splash, has created his own chic home in a 17th-century palazzo […]

The color that I kept seeing all over Italy during my fall 2015 trip was green. So it’s no wonder that Sawyer Berson‘s Italian inspired Petit Salon at the 2016 Kips Bay Decorator Show House is also green. It’s a nod to infinitely inspiring Villa Necchi in Milan which I also visited during my travels. The […]

Fashion week has just ended in Milan and one of the chicest showrooms has to be the Palazzo Ralph Lauren. It’s one of those beautifully designed spaces in which you wish you could live. If you feel the same, here are some suggestions to get you started. Tufted Cream Sofa Ralph Lauren Plaid Pillows Shearling […]

For Restless Sleepers

02 . 26 . 16

I wrote about pajamas earlier this week and then kept seeing them everywhere. Dolce & Gabbana had a chic Slumber Party in Los Angeles earlier this week and later T magazine highlighted For Restless Sleepers. Founder Francesca Ruffini presented her fall collection in Milan but these photos are from the Lake Como home she shares with her […]

Before I head off on my next trip, I thought it might be a good idea to finally recap my two week trip to Italy last autumn which includes some of the things I wore along the way. I started  off in Milan for fashion week and then traveled on to Venice, Rome, and Florence before […]

I would like to think I’m a good person to speak on traveling and hotels considering that I’ve stayed in five different hotels in the last six weeks. But I was still flattered that Yahoo Travel asked me to contribute my two cents to their article How to Make Your Hotel Feel More Like Home. One of […]

One of the best places I visited in Milan, Pasticceria Marchesi just opened during fashion week but has actually been around since 1824. The historic Milanese pastry shop was recently bought by Prada and in addition to the original landmark location at Via Santa Maria alla Porta, 11a, they have opened a new pastel colored jewel box at the fashionable Via […]

Happy Travels

09 . 27 . 15

I’m currently wrapping up my whirlwind trip to Milan and will be heading to Venice Monday morning.  I’ve seen so many beautiful things in Milan and had a really great time and will hopefully blog about them soon. I remember reading this interesting article on Dr. Boardman’s site Positive Prescription about how just the anticipation of a trip can […]

J.J. Martin in Milan

09 . 25 . 15

I was already working on a post of writer and editor J.J. Martin’s Milan home when I was invited to a party last night to celebrate the launch of her new La Double J Editions dress collection with Mantero at Potafiori with Matches Fashion. The long seasonless dress comes in seven vintage patterns from Mantero’s archives. The […]

Arrivederci!

09 . 23 . 15

I’m off to the airport to catch my Alitalia flight to Italy tonight, the same airline that Pope Francis arrived in yesterday.  I was a little sad to be missing the Pope’s visit to New York until I found out he’s staying on East 72nd Street. Between his visit, the UN General Assembly, and the President […]

Italy Advice Needed

08 . 19 . 15

As I mentioned previously, I’m planning a trip to Italy this September/October that will include Milan, Venice, Rome, and Florence. Obviously, I know all the major sights but if you have any recommendations for places off the beaten path, charming cafes or new stores, please let me know. Grazie mille, HC
