There is nothing I love more than a before and after, especially when it’s the home of someone with impeccable taste. Architectural Digest just published the recently redecorated Greenwich Village apartment of architect Gil Schafer online. He had the in-house interiors department give the pied-à-terre a slightly more contemporary feel which included lightening the walls […]

So many people are back in the city for work and school that New York is definitely feeling back to normal but with masks. One thing that has helped with the normality is the reopening of museums. I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Friday with a friend and it felt so good to […]

I came across some new photos of fashion designer Michael Bastian‘s downtown apartment recently and I was reminded how much I love his living room. It reminds me of the male equivalent of my art filled space except I don’t have a fireplace. There is something about it that always reminded me of autumn so […]

I really can’t believe that it will be August next weekend. Times flies when you can’t go anywhere or do anything. I jest of course. We can do things in New York but I have no desire to eat outside with people not wearing masks even if we are in one of the states that […]

If you don’t subscribe to The Bulletin from Schumacher, you are missing out. Luckily, some stories can be found online like the wonderful feature on the chic garden and guest house of designer Stephen Sills in Bedford, New York. I forgot how much I appreciate the elegant and impeccable style of Stephen Sills. His work […]

Last year flew by because I traveled so much. I probably don’t have to tell you how long the last three months of quarantine have felt. New York City has just entered Phase One of reopening so I hope this means we are close to getting back to a more normal feeling life again. I […]

Since no one can leave their homes, magazines have had to get creative. Wendy Goodman, the design editor of New York magazine, asked her sister Tonne Goodman to submit a few photos of her West Village duplex for The Cut. I’ve mixed her photos from the Vogue profile of it from September 2001. Tonne found […]

Dispatch from New York

Everyone keeps asking how we are in New York. We’re all just taking it one day at a time. Last week was the most stressful as we all waited for word that the city would receive a “shelter in place” order. I think many people think that means that we are not allowed outside. (If […]

I came across P. Johnson Femme tailors on Instagram today and immediately fell in love with their chic jackets as well as their look book that was photographed in Paris. The collection of single and double breasted blazers and trousers are part of the women’s tailoring line from P. Johnson Tailors for men who are […]

Happy Valentine’s Day and President’s Day weekend! I know a lot of people will be leaving the city this weekend but there are a lot of things happening for those who have decided to stay or those who will be visiting. I’m not really that into orchids but Jeff Leatham, famed artistic director of the […]

We’ve made it through January. It was the longest month ever but I have a feeling February will fly by so I’ve pulled together a few things happening now and later in the month to give you time to plan ahead. Don’t forget that The Winter Show will be close on Sunday, February 2, 2020. […]

I can’t believe there are only 12 more days until Christmas. I have so many things to do before then that I’m a little stressed out about how I’m going to get it all done. If you’re behind on things like shopping, there are quite a few wonderful pop ups worth visiting in New York […]
