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. […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think the mark of a great designer is someone who can make me like a design style that is not my personal favorite. Interior designer Martin Brûlé has created the chicest Art Deco abode in a building that did not have many redeeming interior architectural […]

I can’t believe it’s October already. As sad as I am to wish away this year, the closer we get to 2021 makes me happy. This has been a rough year and every time I think it can’t get any worse, something manages to surprise me. On the bright side, the cooler and drier air […]

The Knives Out costume designer Jenny Eagan told The Hollywood Reporter that she doesn’t remember the brand of the frayed Aran cable knit sweater because the piece […]

October is one of the prettiest times in New York. Well, not right now because it’s wet and cold. But hopefully soon the leaves will change and pumpkins will be put out on stoops and all will be right with the world.

I’ll admit that it felt like this summer flew by but I’m still very ready for la rentrée, which is what the French call the reentry after their August holidays. I can’t wait for sweater weather, leaf peeping, and fall events like the Lee Radziwill auction at Christie’s in October. If you’re not excited for […]

Every year, I eagerly await the first pre-fall collection from Sézane and it’s finally launched today. I don’t think the styling and photos are as beautiful or inspiring as they were last year but the collection is still filled with wonderful pieces to add to your autumn wardrobe. Happy September!
