This week was not as busy as last week due to snow and the ending of fashion week but I still managed to miss a few things. I’m hoping to catch up on some of them over the long holiday weekend. If put a few new stores and events happening around New York, Los Angeles, […]

Today I heard there are only 39 days until Christmas. I’m definitely not ready and if you aren’t either, we have our first favorite things gift guide of the season to help get you started on your shopping. I love this set of 4 Aerin Holiday Salad Plates. They would make a great gift with […]

If you’ve ever taken a walk on the Upper East Side or West Village during October, you’ll see houses with over the top decorations for Halloween. Some are so scary that I avoid during certain streets during this time of year. I personally prefer chicer home decor and tabletop pieces that can transition from Halloween […]

There are always great parties each fall in New York but the place to be last night was the Cabana magazine pop up party at Bergdorf Goodman. Italian founder Martina Mondadori Sartogo was on hand to celebrate her new colorful Persia Collection along with Aerin Lauder, Ashley Hicks, and Lee Radziwill, and many others. The […]

In addition to more flat lay outfits and color compilation posts, I’ve also had a request to bring back more bon weekend compilation posts. These are posts that incorporate disparate recommendations and events that don’t warrant a full blog post. I’m not sure I’ll do them every week but instead when I have a few […]

Royal Garden Party

05 . 17 . 18

Are you going to watch the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle on Saturday?  I’ll definitely be watching but it’s a shame her family drama is overshadowing the big day. It will be too wet in New York to throw a royal garden party to celebrate, but I’ve put together some lovely items […]

Lewis Miller Design posted photos on Instagram Saturday of tables they designed for an event. As other people I follow started to post images of the same event, I figured out that is was the 25th anniversary party for Laura and Harry Slatkin of Nest at their home in East Hampton. Even rain showers didn’t […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

11 . 24 . 16

I read on twitter today rom Dr. Frank Lipman that “gratitude produces a profound shift in your immune and endocrine systems, lowering stress hormoones and boosting overall health.” I hope that makes up for all the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie we will all indulge in today. As usual, I’m grateful for your continued readership!  Happy Thanksgiving! […]

I recently had the pleasure of hosting a dinner party with Everything but the House (EBTH) to help celebrate the launch of their online estate sales in New York. A lot of thought went into all the table top details and the guest list and I enjoyed working closely with my dear friend Andrea Stanford […]

Serena Fresson posted a beautifully set spring table on Instagram this morning which made me think it was the perfect time to highlight her chic style. Serena is the mother of Alice Naylor-Leyland who I recently featured in the post Alice in Wonderland. It’s clear that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in […]

While we’re on the topic of Ralph Lauren, can we talk about all the gorgeous blue and white pieces are in the entertaining collection from Ralph Lauren Home.  Not only does it remind me of the summer outdoor decor at Ralph’s restaurant in Paris but it also makes me want to plan a party. Or […]

Happy Easter

04 . 04 . 15

  Wishing you all a beautiful spring Easter weekend!

A little package of green lettuce plates arrived this week and they were the perfect pick me up for this never ending winter.  The plates are Dodie Thayer for Tory Burch and are part of a whole collection of pieces. Dodie Thayer, The Pottery Queen of Palm Beach, originally started molding her Lettuce Ware pieces by […]

I was very excited to see on photographer Oberto Gili‘s Instagram today that he took the photos for the upcoming book, Valentino: At the Emperor’s Table, that also includes Andre Leon Talley as author.  If you’ve seen the Valentino documentary Valentino: The Last Emperor, you know that Valentino is a consummate host and party planner, or at […]

While I was on the way to meet a very chic New Yorker who also lives in Paris yesterday, I walked by the most amazing looking store. When she mentioned that she still needed china and napkins and other pieces to finish off her home, I told her about the store so we went back […]

My favorite events each year are those that benefit charity and partner with designers.  They always seem to bring out the most creativity and this year’s DIFFA Dining by Design was no exception.  I just realized that I’ve been covering DBD as they call it since 2009 and each year, the tables just keep getting […]
