Victoria Hagan‘s Grand American Salon living room at the 2016 Kips Bay Decorator Show House marks her return to the show house after many years away. It feels like a modern interpretation of her blue and white beach house rooms that is perfect for city life. The inspiration was one of her own Instagram photos […]

La Reserve Paris

03 . 09 . 16

According to social media, it seemed like everyone was staying at La Reserve Hotel for fashion week. Just as I put it on my must visit list, I saw that my Instagram friend David Leppan was also staying at the chic hotel. When he suggested tea, I immediately agreed to come to him to check it out. […]

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I’m ready to start thinking about Christmas. The last time I went all out decorating for the holidays, I was cleaning up pine needles in my apartment for months. So I’ve been thinking about how I can get the look with less mess. My current inspiration is Alessandra Branca‘s dining room that […]

My final show each fashion week is Ralph Lauren.  I like to think of it as saving the best for last and it always ends the week on a high note. While the red, white, and blue color palette might seem all American, the lyrics that played while Mr. Lauren took his bow was “I love […]

Interior designer Alessandra Branca loves all colors but she has become most known for her use of red.  So much so that when she suggests to show house committees that she’d like to design a different color room, they steer her back to red because it’s what the public wants.  And I have a feeling […]

Red Hot Reese

09 . 29 . 14

I was wondering why the October issue of Vogue magazine was so late to the newsstand.  Perhaps the cover line about “George Clooney’s Ravishing Bride” has something to do with it. His wedding to Amal Alamuddin just took place in Venice, Italy this past weekend.  But it’s lovely Reese Witherspoon who graces the cover is […]

Beautiful Blues

05 . 11 . 14

Sometimes I feel like all European apartments are white so I was happy to see this Milan apartment filled with beautiful blue walls. It was featured in this weekend’s T magazine and is the home of Italian writer Benedetta Cibrario. Besides blue, it’s filled with gilt frames, multiple patterns, and pops of red. It’s the […]

Herrera at Home Again

02 . 20 . 14

I was flipping through the new March 2014 issue of InStyle magazine and was surprised to find a feature on Carolina Herrera‘s home.  The photos including more than those here don’t show too much of anything new but are worth checking out anyway.  I especially love the books waiting to be read in the library above. Maybe I […]

I Love You

Red Hot

11 . 17 . 13

Just because I am trying to remove color from apartment that doesn’t mean I don’t like it in my life.  Like all good interior designers, I love a pop of red scattered through out a room. I have also been trying to find the perfect red dress for winter. It would be the perfect complement […]

Bon Weekend

05 . 03 . 13

The weather in New York could not be more beautiful and it will continue all weekend.  Hooray!  The Park Avenue tulips above are standing tall and proud all along the Upper East Side. While this dapper gentleman and most of the city were enjoying some time in the sun. Many interior designers like Kathryn Ireland […]

On Valentine’s Day, I won this amazing red Celine Phantom bag from Vaunte.  I never win anything and I still can’t believe I won a Celine bag.  I’m not telling you this to gloat but to remind you that you can’t win if you don’t play.  A good reminder for contests and life! Bon Weekend!  […]

Color My World

02 . 20 . 13

I LOVE this color block outfit (it’s Prada) that Amanda Seyfried was wearing that was posted on Who What Wear today.  It’s freezing again in New York and this ensemble is getting me even more excited for spring.  It also reminds me of a few other things I’ve seen recently.  I have been stalking these […]

Red seems to be popping up in every collection for fall 2013 and Trina Turk was no exception.  According to the show notes ” Trina Turk’s fall 2013 collection signals a distinct brand evolution as she focuses on the sleek and chic style of California today. Her signature west coast optimism has been infused with […]

What’s black and white and red all over?  It’s interior designer Alexa Hampton‘s space in the Hickory Chair showroom in High Point.  She wanted to do something bold that was classic and modern at the same time and she got it.  I especially love the tape and upholstery tack detail along the walls and neoclassical […]

A Tribute to Albert

05 . 19 . 12

The Kips Bay Decorator Show House this year isn’t all green.  Bunny Williams, Brian J. McCarthy, and David Kleinberg, all former employees of Albert Hadley, collaborated on a fabulous Venetian plastered white living room punctuated with pops of red.  There are also a few mementos from Mr. Hadley including his “Don’t Forget” memo pads and […]

Red Hot

02 . 02 . 12

They say April is the cruelest month but for me, I think it’s February.  I loathe Valentine’s Day and any other holiday for which I am made to feel inferior for not having a date.  But in the spirit of if you can’t beat them, you might as well join them, I’m deciding to embrace […]
