When I visit Paris, I usually rent an apartment because I tend to stay at least 10 days. But I always keep a list of hotels for recommendations and will be adding the new Château Voltaire to the list when it opens in mid October. It is located in the 1st arrondissement which is quite […]

En Vacances 2020

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

I started following designer Camilla Guinness on Instagram earlier this year and was thinking about putting a post together. Today, her villa in Tuscany was featured on House & Garden so it felt like the perfect time. She shares the house named Arniano that she decorated with her daughters Amber and Claudia. Amber lives in […]

It feels like everyone is in Paris right now or just returned like my friend interior designer Andrew Brown. He and his partner Kip took a last minute trip to celebrate Andrew’s birthday. While they were in the City of Light, they took a day trip to Versailles where they quickly toured of the chateau […]

My Recent Etsy Finds

07 . 06 . 21

In the past year, I’ve found myself buying much more from Etsy. There are so many lovely and creative people running their entire companies on the platform and offering great prices. I’ve put together some of the things I’ve recently purchased and some things that have caught my eye. I’m not usually one for dupes […]

Now that we can go places again, I’ve been trying to check off some of the places I have been wanting to explore in New York. Last Friday, I took a field trip to the Van Cortlandt House Museum which is the oldest building in the borough of the Bronx and run by the National […]

Last year felt like it crawled by at a snail’s pace while this year is flying by. I can’t believe it will be July next week. If you’re coming to the city or just looking for new things to see and do, I’ve got you covered. This week, I attended the Member Preview for The […]

Have you always wondered what it would be like to live at Versailles? Well, now you can get your chance at the newly opened five-star Le Grand Contrôle Hotel from the Airelles hotel group which sits within the gates of Versailles. Le Grand Contrôle was built in 1681 by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, Louis XIV’s favourite architect […]

Father’s Day feels more exciting this year as families can gather together again. To make sure you don’t arrive empty handed, I’ve put together over 40 presents perfect for dads of all ages including my friend Howie Guja above who was recently featured on Ralph Lauren. Does the dad in your life love films and […]

I feel like I’m definitely going to have Stendhal Syndrome the next time I go to Paris. For those who aren’t familiar with this illness, it’s is “a psychosomatic condition involving rapid heartbeat, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations, allegedly occurring when individuals become exposed to objects, artworks, or phenomena of great beauty.” Another opening in […]

I can’t believe we’re in June already. It’s amazing how time flies when you’re having fun again. There are so many things going on in New York right now and about to happen so I’ve rounded up the best for you. I haven’t been to the MoMA since I went to the preview of the […]

Paris just opened after lockdown today and Americans are chomping at the bit to go to the City of Light. I usually don’t like to visit Europe in the summer and will probably wait until the fall. That was my plan until I saw the newly unveiled Bourse de Commerce Pinault Collection art venue that […]

I’m always in awe of women who started their own companies when most women weren’t even working outside of the home. Loretta Caponi earned how to embroider at the age of nine and opened her boutique in Florence in 1967. Her signature nightgowns made of cotton, linen, and silk and later table linens and bedding […]

I’ve been struggling with posts lately since I can’t travel and there are only a few places I can visit in New York. It’s hard to keep going when inspiration is in short supply, especially for design posts. So I’ve decided to go through my camera roll and try to post some historic houses from […]

I’m lucky that we have so many wonderful places to visit within driving distance of New York City. One of the most buzzed about is the Mayflower Inn and Spa in Washington, Connecticut which I was lucky enough to stay at for a weekend earlier this month. The classic 35-room hotel which is part of […]

The Breakers, Newport

10 . 29 . 20

I had such a nice time in Newport, Rhode Island recently and inspired many followers to plan their own trips. But I know many of you can’t travel now so I thought I would post a virtual visit to The Breakers for you. It was interesting to visit the mansions during the pandemic and one […]

When my friend and I visited the Berkshires in August, we stopped by the Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I posted on Instagram that designers should visit since I found the simplicity of design and color choices infinitely inspiring. It looks like one of them actually took my advice. Tory Burch photographed her Spring […]
