I have donated to Housing Works for years and I love supporting this wonderful organization. When pr powerhouse James LaForce invited me to sit at his table for the Housing Works Groundbreaker Awards Dinner last night, I immediately said yes. Before dinner, we were able to check out the Design on a Dime vignettes designed […]

The Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection coming up for auction at Christie’s in May is touted as “the most anticipated art world event of the spring season” and they aren’t exaggerating. The sale filled with artwork by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin, and Pablo Picasso among others, as well as beautiful antiques and objects […]

I love the John Derian stores on East 2nd Street but they are a destination and not a place I walk by regularly. That’s why I am so excited about his new store that just opened at 18 Christopher Street in the West Village which is one of my regular haunts. The front of the […]

Spring is taking it’s sweet time getting here and now it’s grey and rainy in New York. I am so ready for color and flowers and sunshine. Since that’s not happening, I figured this was a great time to revisit Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s family apartment filled with color and flowers put together in the most […]

Legacy Records

03 . 12 . 18

Legacy Records is not very conveniently located unless you are visiting or exhibiting at the Javitz Center. But the chic new restaurant might be worth the trek. Legacy Records is the latest project from Delicious Hospitality, the team behind downtown restaurants Charlie Bird & Pasquale Jones. The new space at the Hudson Yards includes an 85-seat restaurant, […]

The most anticipated event each spring in New York is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I’ve been covering the house since I started my blog in 2007 and it’s my favorite event to share with you. The list of designers participating this year have just been released and it’s an exciting group. I’m most […]

Bastian of Beauty

02 . 14 . 18

The best Valentine’s Day gift was finding Michael Bastian’s apartment featured on One Kings Lane. It’s been a favorite since I first saw it in Domino magazine years ago. I think I’m attracted to it because it reminds me of own apartment filled with antiques and gallery walls of art found at flea markets over […]

Dreaming of Spring

01 . 29 . 18

There are 49 days until the official start of spring but we are really only a month away from warmer weather. Until then, I’m enjoying all shades of green from deep emerald to chartreuse and pale celadon like those in this Fifth Avenue apartment by Jeffrey Bilhuber. The pied-à-terre overlooking Central Park is featured in the January/February […]

The Winter Antiques Show opened in New York last week and I took a tour on Thursday. I fell in love with many paintings and objects and it’s been fun to see what everyone else has been posting on Instagram. As I’ve mentioned over the years, the Winter Antiques Show is a great place to […]

I know many of you will be visiting New York this holiday season so I wanted to share a few great pop up shops and one permanent store open now. When you run out of time for online shopping, you still have a lot of wonderful options in the city. It was a fun treat […]

Shopping online is easy but if you want to find presents in person, I suggest heading to Jayson Home in Soho. They are full of books, candles, objects, furniture, and more. I love visiting their Chicago store and we are so lucky to have them in New York now. Stop by and say hello or […]

If you’ve ever dreamed of having breakfast at Tiffany’s, you can now make it a reality. Well, only if you don’t mind standing in line for an hour two. Last week, I had the pleasure of experiencing the newly redesigned fourth floor of the Tiffany and Co. Fifth Avenue flagship store which offers home decor, […]
