La Double J

06 . 30 . 15

I’m planning a trip to Italy this autumn which is just one of the reasons I love following J.J. Martin and her site La Double J. It highlights her vintage clothing and accessories for sale but also some of the chicest women of Milan. One that caught my attention recently was a feature on Pupi […]

Last week I noticed two interesting Instagram photos posted from Milan on the same day. One was taken by interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein and the other by editor J.J. Martin. While they both had different captions and descriptions, I had a feeling they were  both visiting the same place.  After some careful online sleuthing, I discovered […]

It was only a matter of time before Wes Anderson created a design that lasted longer than the the filming of one of his movies and that time is now. Wes was tapped by the Fondazione Prada to design Bar Luce, the cafe in their art and culture complex in Milan. “There is no ideal […]

That’s Dimore

05 . 04 . 15

I’m headed back from Costa Rica today. Until I’m on track with regular posts, I”m leaving you with this very chic Milan apartment that was featured in Town & Country magazine recently. It belongs to Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran of Dimore Studio who are fast becoming design favorites. As with much of Italian design, it’s […]

Masculine Chic

04 . 27 . 15

I was perusing Pinterest while lying in bed this morning and came across a photo of this very masculine chic apartment in Milan.  It belongs to fashion designer Andrea Pompilio and was just featured on The Selby. While I love the art and accessories in the living spaces and the bedroom, I really appreciate the sleek […]

If you are heading to Milan for Maison & Objet in April, make sure you visit the new Bottega Veneta home store. It’s located in the 18th-century Palazzo Gallarati Scotti where frescoes by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and Carlo Innocenzo Carlone are the perfect backdrop for the furniture and accessories set up in a living room, dining room, studio, […]

People seem to have a love hate relationship with Milan but if every place looked as chic as T’a Milano, I’m sure everyone would love the city.  The chocolate shop and bistro is a contemporary update to the Alemagne’s family business. The blue velvet banquettes and citron upholstery are the perfect complement to the marble floors and brass accents. […]

Double Take

01 . 25 . 15

  Men’s fashion week has been taking place the last few weeks in Europe.  The Fashion Director of Esquire magazine, Nick Sullivan, has been making the rounds and also posting some fun “double take” photos on Instagram. Not sure if they are taken at the time or combined in PhotoShop but the photos combine an […]

This fashion month might be the best yet for street style.  There seem to be less crazy costumes and more real life ensembles. I love that many editors and buyers are wearing denim since that’s my daily uniform. I’m also seeing a lot of army green, in addition to camel and black. If you’re at a loss […]

Masculine in Milan

09 . 12 . 14

Just a reminder that the WSJ. Magazine will be included in the Wall Street Journal newspaper on Saturday, September 13th. It’s the Men’s Issue which  is chock full of stories that will appeal to everyone  including a cover feature on Pharrell Williams.  I already an advance copy, and one story that I really appreciated was a profile of […]

Making Magic in Milan

07 . 16 . 14

I really hope W magazine appreciates that I spent 11 euros on their August issue in Colette yesterday.  While reading online is ok, nothing beats reading a real magazine at night before bed.  It was actually worth the money because I got to see gorgeous photos by Francois Halard of Alessandra Facchinetti’s Milan apartment.  Facchinetti […]

Beautiful Blues

05 . 11 . 14

Sometimes I feel like all European apartments are white so I was happy to see this Milan apartment filled with beautiful blue walls. It was featured in this weekend’s T magazine and is the home of Italian writer Benedetta Cibrario. Besides blue, it’s filled with gilt frames, multiple patterns, and pops of red. It’s the […]
