The first time I saw style scribe Stefano Tonchi’s apartment on Studio Annetta, I was smitten. Seems Suzy found the place featured in Spanish Architectural Digest which everyone keeps telling me I need to start buying and now its also just been featured on The Selby. I’ve combined the best photos from each and now […]

If you don’t live in New York, you might not be familiar with interior designer Richard Mishaan but you better learn his name because you are going to be hearing a lot about him soon. Richard Mishaan’s career path has been an interesting one that had him designing woman’s fashions at one point and later […]

Bottega and Bergdorfs

05 . 12 . 09

When I die, I want to be buried in Bergdorf’s. I don’t think the museums give me as much pleasure as this store. Even if I can’t afford anything, I just like to go and look and be inspired. If you need to be inspired, then I recommend checking out the new Bottega Veneta home […]

Weekend Finds

05 . 10 . 09

Everyone keeps asking me about the Domino sale so here is the scoop. I got up early and my friend Lori and I cabbed it downtown and got on line at 9:00am. At that time the line wasn’t too bad but I heard later that it wrapped around the block. We were met by Stefan […]

I will be out at meetings and appointments the entire day so I am leaving you with photos from fashion designer Derek Lam‘s chic Soho loft recently published in Bazaar. It’s close to his soon to open new boutique on Crosby Street which I can’t wait to check out. I’ve always had an affinity for […]

Mention Housing Works Thrift Shops to anyone in New York and they will tell you how much they love them about the best thing they’ve ever found. Those who are lucky to live close to one make a weekly, if not daily, pilgrimage to search for treasures. The shops are addictive as is their Design […]

The best part of Friday evening was peeking into Amanda Nisbet‘s chic apartment! It was beautiful and elegant as well as colorful and comfortable. Not an easy combination yet it was perfect! Amanda teased me most of the not about not liking color which I assured her was untrue. I just haven’t had an opportunity […]

You know times are tough when even the top design firms are having problems. But everything happens for a reason and in the case of interior designer Harry Heissmann, it has led to the creation of Harry Heissmann, Inc. Harry is a beloved designer in New York who has spent the last nine years working […]

They had me at Hello!

04 . 09 . 09

I think most people would assume that young girls in New York are running around to clubs and getting into trouble every night. Well, not my friend Kelly Reynolds and her roommates, Hannah Robertson and Angela Francine. You can usually find them at home crafting or sewing and all their hard work has culminated in […]

At the end of March, I received a lovely email from Lizzie Bailey who works at Gerald Bland Antiques (and who also went to school with Laurie Reynolds! Small world!) informing me that they would soon be selling drawings by interior design legend Albert Hadley to coincide with the Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse. Oh, and […]

It was freezing and windy in New York today and unfortunately I think they already turned the heat off in my building even though it’s not quite spring. So all I want to do is curl up on my sofa with blanket and watch a movie, preferably one without subtitles. Makes me wish I owned […]

Hail Brittania!

03 . 31 . 09

Topshop finally opens this week in Soho and if that wasn’t enough to cause a stampede, the Kate Moss Collection for Spring 2009 debuts the same day! Maybe I’ll wait until Saturday to check it out. Cheerio!

My internet research often leads me to interesting places. One was a very old New York magazine article about the perils of interior design business. It was as juicy as a soap opera. After that, I discovered that the interior design duo of Stephen Sills and James Huniford (Sills Huniford Associates)parted ways in summer of […]

Spring Ahead

03 . 01 . 09

I’ve been out shopping for clients lately and I’ve been noticing that everyone is ready for spring! One of my favorite window displays is at Bunny Williams and John Rosselli’s shop Treillage on Lexington Avenue at 73rd Street with it’s table set with blue and white porcelain and vases of flowers and potted hyacinths. It’s […]

Amazing Sale at Aero

02 . 11 . 09

I spent most of Tuesday in Soho shopping for clients and spent a lot of my time checking out the amazing sale at Aero. There are some fabulous deals to be had so I recommend checking it out since most of the prices are below cost! Happy Shopping!

Nothing Lasts Forever

02 . 08 . 09

Everyone drooled over Julie and Luke Janklow’s white townhouse when it was featured in Vogue and now it can be yours for $25 Million. The gossip on Page 6 was that the couple was divorcing and it was confirmed when the 25 foot wide 8,100 sf home was put on the market. It seems like […]

Christmas in New York

12 . 23 . 08

Before I left for the holidays, I managed to take a few photos of the city dressed up for Christmas. The twinkle lights look especially beautiful at night! Kind of makes putting up with the hoards of tourists and lack of taxis worth it! Enjoy!
