The French had la rentrée yesterday and now we have our own today as everyone returns to work and school. I am always excited for fall in New York since it starts off with a bang with fashion week shows and parties. There are also a lot of great art exhibitions coming up like Delacroix […]

I have been waiting with bated breath for the new fall collection from Sézane and it was even better than I anticipated. The autumnal colors and warmer fabrics mixed with the chicest leather bags and boots has me wishing for a cold snap. I already placed my order since everything tends to sell out quickly. […]

08 . 20 . 18

When I lived in Paris, I lived on rue Babylone on the top floor of a beautiful old building overlooking a park. When I looked out my window to the right, I could practically reach out and touch Le Bon Marché department store. At the end of the park on the left was the old […]

I had never heard of interior designer Francois de Marigny before coming across this art filled duplex he designed for a divorced and his children in Paris on ArchitecturalDigest.com but now I want to see more.

In another fit of spring cleaning, I decided to get rid of more magazines. I was going to throw out a stack of World of Interiors until I started to leaf through them.

Not all museum exhibitions have to be ground breaking. Some can just be beautiful and Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is beyond beautiful. The show “explores horticultural developments that reshaped the landscape of France and grounded innovative movements both artistic and green.” It features over 150 works […]

Monica Ainley is Canadian born writer and street style darling living in Paris who is often photographed with her partner in crime Camille Charrière. Together, they host the podcast Fashion No Filter. I love Monica’s classic fashion style that only adds a tiny touch of trendy or fashion forward items. I save a lot of her […]

The best place to learn about new hotels is on Instagram and that’s exactly how I learned about the Hotel des Grands Boulevards in Paris. It was developed by the Experimental Group and designed by Dorothée Meilichzon in the 2nd arrondissement in an 18th-century building “erected shortly before the French Revolution on the foundation of […]

Chanel always has beautiful fashion shows but the Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris was especially lovely. Karl Lagerfeld imagined a French garden with traditional trellises of climbing roses surrounding a fountain. Guests sat on park benches and models walked down stone paths. It was the perfect backdrop to the […]

The design world has been attending Maison & Objet for the last week. I’ve enjoyed following along on Instagram especially since it looks so much chicer than it did when I first attended in 2009. The booth that stood out this season is Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam. The deep green walls, floral fabric, and […]
