I’m not sure where I stumbled upon Gallison Hall which is currently for sale in Charlottesville, Virginia but it was definitely worth a deep dive into the historic house. The Georgian style house was designed by the architect Stanhope Johnson and built between 1931 and 1933 and sits just three miles west of the University of […]

One of my favorite projects last year was styling a dining table for the Sotheby’s Dining IN Online Sale. When they asked me to style a table for the Sotheby’s Dining IN New York Online Sale this year, I was more than happy to oblige. It’s a dream to be style a table with some […]

It feels like we’ve lost so many wonderful collectors in the last few years. The art and personal treasures from the Paris apartment of artist Pierre Le Tan are up for auction at Sotheby’s this Tuesday and Wednesday. Included in the sale are furniture including the lovely early Louis XV amaranth and varnished bronze commode […]

Even though I have a very small kitchen and no separate dining room in my New York apartment, I obsessively collect antique china and silver. So when Sotheby’s asked if I’d like to collaborate with them on their Dining IN online auction happening now, I jumped at the chance. Since everyone is spending so much […]

In 2012, Andy Cohen asked Meryl Streep on Watch What Happens Live, “Name one bad film that you have made.” Her answer was, “Still of the Night” a film in 1982 in which she co-stared with Roy Schieder and re-teamed her with her Kramer vs. Kramer director Robert Benton. It wasn’t an Oscar contender but I enjoy the […]

I was first seated next to interior designer Mario Buatta at an event over ten years ago. He couldn’t have been more excited to have a fresh person to surprise with his fake cockroach prank. Decorating should be fun and it was refreshing that he didn’t take it all so seriously even though he worked […]

After my recent travels and countless events in NYC, I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend but that doesn’t mean I’ll be staying home. There are many new openings worth checking out. I missed the press preview for the updated galleries at Sotheby’s last weekend because I was traveling so I walked over for a […]

I had a hard time trying to decide what to name this post because it’s actually about a few different but related things. First, Delphine and Reed Krakoff have decided to part with some of their collection of art and furniture at Sotheby’s 23 May 2018 in the sale A Collection That We Dreamt Of: Art and […]

An Art Filled Weekend

05 . 05 . 18

If you are in New York this weekend, you will definitely not lack for things to do, especially if you like art. There is so much going on that I’m a little exhausted already but I still have two more exhibitions to see. Hope you can make it one or all but definitely wear comfortable […]

Jacques Grange is one the world’s most exclusive interior designers. He started his career under Henri Samuel and honed his craft under Didier Aaron before going on to decorate for his own clients which include Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, Paloma Picasso, Terry de Gunzburg, Valentino, Sofia Coppola, Aerin Lauder, and Lauren Santo Domingo […]

As with any interior design project, the 2016 Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse wasn’t quite finished when I stopped by for the press preview Friday morning. Luckily, I only live a few blocks away so I popped over Sunday to see the completed room and they were definitely worth the wait. The Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse was conceived to […]

If I had realized that the Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire auction was scheduled for Sotheby’s in London on the day I land in Paris, I would have revised my travel plans. But thanks to the wonders of technology, we can all see everything online and even bid remotely. Although, I think I will walk over to Sotheby’s today […]

I was honored to be asked by Sotheby’s to host the Young Collector’s event this week as well as participate in a fun interview with four other tastemakers. The Contemporary Living: Photographs, Prints, Design sale is currently on view before the auction on July 22nd at 10:00am. It’s filled with approximately 250 objects from the 20th & 21st centuries, including […]

You know a kitchen design is good when it makes you mentally redesign your own space.  That’s how I feel about the Sotheby’s Showhouse kitchen designed by St. Charles of New York using appliances by Gaggenau. The custom color of the cabinetry and brass hardware is a perfect contrast to the antique silver and china from […]

A sure sign that antiques and modern art can coexist is the dining room at the Sotheby’s Showhouse that was designed by Russell Piccione. A George II Side Table, Consoles, Chimeypiece, George III Chairs, and silver serving and display pieces, look perfectly at home with works by Chuck Close, Alex Katz, Andy Warhol, and James Rosenquist. […]

The Sotheby’s Showhouse was created with the intention of showing younger collectors that you can mix antiques and modern elements with contemporary pieces to create a space that doesn’t look fuddy duddy.  Actually those are my words not theirs but you get the idea.  I had the pleasure of touring the spaces on Friday and meeting […]

Lambert Foundation, a charitable entity established by Mrs. Mellon in […]
