I used to visit Maine in the summer when I first moved to New York but I’m well overdue for a trip now. It’s a popular destination for those looking for relief from the heat in beautiful natural surroundings so it’s no wonder that Gil Schafer fell in love with the Pine Tree State growing […]

I apologize for the decrease in posts over the last week. As much as I enjoy travel, it’s been wiping me out lately. I don’t have another trip scheduled for two weeks so I plan to spend that time editing photos and writing lots of new posts. I’m hoping to post over this weekend to […]

After the over the top monstrosities of the Met Gala yesterday, I think it’s time for a palette cleanser. I can’t think of a better refresh than with the “Room of her Own” designed by Sarah Bartholomew for the Kips Bay Decorator Show House this year. It’s a calm and soothing respite from the craziness […]

While I’ve been adding navy and lavender to my spring wardrobe, I also love wearing neutrals. One of my favorite go to outfits is a trench or blazer paired with an ivory blouse, jeans, and flats. I actually wore this exact outfit on Friday when we had a brief warm up to 70 degrees. If […]

The French had la rentrée yesterday and now we have our own today as everyone returns to work and school. I am always excited for fall in New York since it starts off with a bang with fashion week shows and parties. There are also a lot of great art exhibitions coming up like Delacroix […]

I loved the New York apartment of Michael DePerno and Andrew Fry that I featured in the post Small Space, Big Style earlier this year so it’s no surprise that I also love their Connecticut house. The owners of the store Plain Goods in New Preston, Connecticut are the poster boys for classic American minimal […]

In addition to flay lay outfits, I’ve been receiving many requests for color posts. I lost interest after other people started to copy them but since so many readers love them, I will try to bring them back on a more regular basis. As a follow up to yesterday’s neutral outfit is a neutral color […]

Bamboo Beach House

01 . 30 . 18

It’s snowing again in New York which means it’s the perfect time to think about planning a warm weather trip. It’s also a great time to post a very cool bamboo beach house in Mustique by Veere Grenney. I don’t remember seeing this retreat when it was featured in House & Garden in January 2016. […]

Creating Space Within

01 . 02 . 18

Interior designer Alyssa Kapito created this room for the 2017 Holiday House. While you may have already seen it all over the internet, I specifically saved it for this week. It looked like the perfect clean and neutral space to start off the new year. Then last night, I came across a great article Creating […]

I can’t wait to clean up all Christmas clutter currently overtaking my living room, especially after seeing this minimal chic apartment in Greenwich Village. It belongs to Alexendra O’Neill who founded the fashion line Makarian and was just featured on Vogue.com. She gut renovated the space but didn’t strip it of its charm. Moldings were […]

Every morning, I’m afraid to turn on the news or look at Twitter. I feel depressed and helpless and unsure of the world. I don’t know what to do except give you a place to escape if you feel the same. Besides the Autumn poets sing A few prosaic days A little this side of […]
