We’ve had some beautiful weather this October and I made sure I went out for walks on all the sunny days. It was so nice to see so many homeowners and businesses decorate for fall and Halloween. The city is bustling and seems back to normal which feels so good. I can’t wait to see […]

If you follow Ashley Stark on Instagram, you may have seen her weekly posts on the status of her family’s townhouse renovation. Once the house got closer to completion, the posts stopped which was a sure sign that it would be featured in a magazine. And not just any magazine. The townhouse which was gut […]

Someone who wishes to remain anonymous, sent me photos this weekend of the 9 East 71st Street townhouse when it was published in Architectural Digest in 1995 after they read my Friday Bon Weekend blog post. At the time it was owned by billionaire businessman Leslie Wexner who had architect Thierry Despont and interior designer […]

When someone moves to Brooklyn because they need more room for a growing family, I immediately think of the Sex and the City episode where Miranda and Steve do just that. I don’t think their house looked anything like the chic Cobble Hill brownstone that Vogue alum and Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Durrett lives in with […]

The first part of New York fashion week highlights younger and emerging designers while the second half of the schedule is dedicated to the larger more established fashion houses. Carolina Herrera, with Wes Gordon at the helm, kicks things off Monday morning at the New York Historical Society. You should be able to watch the […]

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 can’t believe that November magazines are already on newsstands. The latest issue of Architectural Digest features the West Village townhouse of actress Julianne Moore that’s surprisingly down to earth for a movie star. I appreciate that it looks like she decorated it herself and that is feels very personal. “I like things that have real […]

Chic Chicago Townhouse

06 . 28 . 17

The Web Exclusive Home Tours on Architectural Digest are always my favorite features. They usually highlight more relatable interiors compared to some of the aspirational homes in the magazine. Long time readers might remember seeing the Chicago home of Lauren Buxbaum Gordon a few years ago. Lauren is a design director for Nate Berkus and moved to […]

Restrained Elegance

02 . 21 . 17

I’ve posted Rose Uniacke‘s gorgeous London home before but it’s always worth repeating. Vogue has featured new photos of the house in the March 2017 issue that Rose describes as, “monastery meets Venetian palazzo.” I don’t know if I ever really noticed the unfinished floors before which I really love against the grandeur of the […]

Carolyn Murphy at Home

07 . 17 . 16

I enjoy following Estee Lauder face and Shinola women’s design director Carolyn Murphy on Instagram since she’s one of the more relatable models. I also love when she posts pics of her Chelsea townhouse so I was excited to see Rosewood Hotels feature more photos on Rosewood Issues website. Her home is filled with treasures from her […]

The Row in New York

While I was in Peru, my friend David Lawrence posted Instagram photos from The Row‘s new store at 17 East 71st Street in New York. Lucky for me, it’s located in my neighborhood on the Upper East Side and I can’t wait to stop by this week. As you know, there is nothing I love more […]
