When I read in the new issue of Architectural Digest that Derek Blasberg moved to the Upper East Side, I was curious if he lived close to me. I’ve never seen him in the neighborhood but he travels so extensively that it wasn’t that surprising. A quick search not only revealed that he does live […]

I originally planned to just post Lee Radziwill’s Paris apartment to show her interior design style but then I realized it wouldn’t tell the entire story of her design progression. So I made a deep dive into the archives and spent all day Sunday outlining them. Some of her rooms have become iconic and she […]

I woke this morning to learn that Lee Radziwill (Caroline Lee Bouvier Canfield Radziwill Ross) passed away on Friday. Lee lived on East 72nd Street and it was always a delight to see her in the neighborhood. The last time I saw her was at the Cabana Pop Up party at Bergdorf Goodman last September. […]

This week was not as busy as last week due to snow and the ending of fashion week but I still managed to miss a few things. I’m hoping to catch up on some of them over the long holiday weekend. If put a few new stores and events happening around New York, Los Angeles, […]

You can read all about it on ArchitecturalDigest.com. […]

More for me!’ The real problem is that younger folks don’t realize that you can mix antiques and Old Master paintings with modern pieces and motorcycles. Such is the case in the uptown duplex apartment of art advisor Will […]

Yesterday, I had a chance to visit the just opened Ralph’s Coffee in the Ralph Lauren Women’s and Home mansion at 888 Madison Avenue. It’s such a treat to have this chic coffee shop uptown where you can not only get a coffee or tea but some sweets and gifts. They can also make you […]
