Sea Roost

06 . 12 . 19

No one does beach and nautical chic like photographer Matt Albiani and Ron Brand. Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more. Now you can experience their aesthetic in a summer rental […]

What a week! There seemed to be something off about this week which culminated in my website going down last night. It was due to the fact that all the domain renewal notices went to my Spam folder instead of my Inbox. This has definitely been a lesson to make sure I have important dates […]

Le Jardinier

06 . 05 . 19

The French are spoiled with restaurants designed by architect Joseph Dirand and now New York can experience his work while dining at Le Jardinier at 610 Lexington Avenue in one of developer Aby Rosen‘s newest building. The light and airy space is filled with shades of cream and green that looks like a breath of […]

I had such a busy and enjoyable week and now that the sun is finally out, it feels like all is right with the world again. There were lots of events and openings as everyone tries to get things on the calendar before people start leaving for the Hamptons and summer vacations. But if you […]

Spring in Central Park

04 . 12 . 19

Sorry for the lack of posts the last two days. I had a lot going on this week including a sore throat that luckily didn’t turn into anything more. I’m also trying to finalize all my plans for my birthday trip to Charleston next week. I did manage to take a walk in Central Park […]

After my press preview at Hermès yesterday, I decided to walk the entire length of the High Line to check out the first phase of the new Hudson Yards shopping and event complex. I had delayed visiting when it first opened due to the crowds and location. I wish it was more conveniently located because […]

On Thursday morning, I headed downtown to preview the new Hermès store in the Meatpacking District. The area used to actually be where they packed meat in New York. You would almost break an ankle on the cobblestones when you went to Pastis or Florent. Now those iconic places are gone and the cobblestones have […]

I have a degree in art history with a concentration in 18th-century European paintings. I did study the Renaissance and even had to take my senior seminar on “Caravaggio and the Caravaggesque Artists” (I’m still made I didn’t get Gauguin like they did the previous year) but wouldn’t say it’s in my wheelhouse. I’m regretting […]

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 […]
