While driving to the Plain Goods shop in New Preston, Connecticut, we drove past the home of interior designer Daniel Romualdez. The 18th-century former stone tavern had previously belonged to fashion designer Bill Blass but Romauldez has put his personal spin on the rooms without ruining any of the original charm. Landscape designer Miranda Brooks […]

I ordered the September 2019 issue of Vogue from Amazon last week and was rewarded with a feature of Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo’s house in Southampton, New York. Well, it’s not actually the whole house. The gardens designed by Miranda Brooks, which were probably photographed at their height last summer, take center stage […]

For Sale in Sag Harbor

06 . 21 . 17

Today is the first day of summer and if you’re still looking for a place to getaway out east, you might want to check out Matt Lauer’s Sag Harbor home that just received another price cut at Corcoran. The six bedroom, six bathroom 8,000-square-foot home was designed by architect Daniel Romualdez, while the Muriel Brandolini […]

A Fashionable Garden

08 . 10 . 16

I want to thank everyone who sent get well wishes online. Now that I’m finally feeling a little better, I want nothing more than to get back outside. Unfortunately, it’s going to be hazy, hot, and humid for the next few days which means it’s the perfect time to head out east. The family compound […]

Europe has already gone back to work and school but we have one last long summer weekend to relax before it’s back to our reality. I hope your summer weekend home is as lovely as this one on Long Island designed by Carrier & Company. I don’t think there is one thing I would change about the […]

Colorful Country Chic

03 . 23 . 15

I’ve spent many of these cold winter days finally cleaning out the stacks of magazines in my apartment. While leafing through an old issue of UK Vogue, I came across the beautiful home of Jemma Kidd and her family. It was also featured in Elle Decor. The 18th-century house in Hampshire is on the property […]

Blue and White Delight

04 . 28 . 14

When I went on the Carrier and Company website on Friday to link to their site, I noticed a beautiful beach house project in the Hamptons. It made me a little wistful about not being here to go out East this summer.  I’m sure that will pass the minute I land in Paris but I […]

On Location

11 . 10 . 12

I was very excited that my friends at Lonny not only wanted to feature photos from my new book Creativity at Work in their November 2012 issue but also give you a peek into my own workspace.  I would love to have a separate office but to keep overhead low, I work from a desk in […]

For Peet’s Sake

06 . 11 . 12

The house features in Vogue magazine have gotten smaller so I’m always glad when they post the photos online.  The latest is Amanda Peet’s family home in the Hollywood Hills.  While the interiors are lovely, it’s the garden designed by Miranda Brooks that steals the show. An olive grove, Cypress trees, and grapefruit orchard have […]

I think there is a misconception that New Yorkers only go to the Hamptons in the summer.  While the Hamptons are lovely during the warmer months, they can be even better in the fall and winter when the crowds have left.  If Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour and her family don’t spend weekends at their place […]

One of my readers loved the photo of the woman and child in the garden from yesterday’s post. The woman in question is landscape designer Miranda Brooks, the child is her daughter and the garden is one that she designed. I recently found her website and have been drooling over her work ever since. Any […]
