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 […]

I’ve always loved the French phrase la rentrée which means the reentry. It encompasses back to school and back to work as everyone returns from their August holidays and tries to get back on track. They’ve already come back but as Americans go back to school and work after this long Labor Day weekend, it’s […]

Chic Chicago Townhouse

The Web Exclusive Home Tours on Architectural Digest are always my favorite features. They usually highlight more relatable interiors compared to some of the aspirational homes in the magazine. Long time readers might remember seeing the Chicago home of Lauren Buxbaum Gordon a few years ago. Lauren is a design director for Nate Berkus and moved to […]

I came across a photo of this home on Pinterest and realized that it’s epitomizes the feeling of my Shifting into Neutral post from Monday.

Every designer’s dream project is one where the client gives them carte blanche. That’s probably easier to do when the space in question is a Parisian pied-a-terre and the designer is Joseph Dirand. Not only did he design the 6,500 square foot apartment on the Avenue Montaigne but also chose all the artwork. A lot […]

I hadn’t intended to post about fashion two days in a row but after seeing the gorgeous Ralph Lauren fashion show yesterday, I felt compelled. The “see now, buy now” collection was shown in the Ralph Lauren Women’s Mansion that was filled with walls of orchids, the sound of birds, and even moving butterflies. Just […]

Tomorrow is the first day of autumn although it feels like summer is not giving up without a fight in New York. Everyone I know is looking forward to crisp weather, changing leaves, apple picking, and cozy sweaters. Here’s a little autumn inspiration to get you in the mood for fall. Wool Ribbed Turtleneck Sweater […]

As you know, Sag Harbor is my favorite place in the Hamptons. When I’m in town, I love stopping by to say hello to Mona Nerenberg at her very chic store Bloom. While I was there in June, Mona let me  know that not only was the home she shares with her partner Lisa Bynon going to […]
