I saw photos of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Upper Michigan on Instagram last year and immediately put it on my must visit list. When I asked Michelle Adams who moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan about going to visit the hotel, she said it was a long drive from her house which meant […]

If you’re tired of looking at everyone’s Instagram photos of themselves on a yacht in Capri, you’re in luck, I’m off to Newport, Rhode Island today. Expect lots of sailing and harbor photos mixed with magnificent mansions. One of the ones that I won’t be touring is Beaulieu. It’s the private domain of Ruth Buchanan […]

I hope you are enjoying a nice long holiday weekend to celebrate the Fourth of July. I couldn’t think of a better place to post today than Sag Harbor. It’s such a quaint harbor town full of American flags and patriotic price. If you’re looking to partake in the all American past time of shopping […]

One of the highlights of my trip to Sag Harbor was getting to see my friend Chris Kann‘s charming Sag Harbor cottage. I’ve seen photo on Instagram but it’s even better in person. I arrived around 4:00pm on Friday and the light was so beautiful. We drank rosé in the yard and watched the cardinals […]

No one does beach and nautical chic like photographer Matt Albiani and Ron Brand. Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more. Now you can experience their aesthetic in a summer rental […]

I used to visit Maine in the summer when I first moved to New York but I’m well overdue for a trip now. It’s a popular destination for those looking for relief from the heat in beautiful natural surroundings so it’s no wonder that Gil Schafer fell in love with the Pine Tree State growing […]

As I mentioned yesterday, Mezzaore Hotel and Thermal Spa is part of the Pellicano Group of hotels. The iconic coral exteriors and crenellated watchtower built high up on the cliff in the 16th and 17th centuries has amazing views that the group could not resist. The family acquired the Ischia property six months ago and […]

I had such a busy and enjoyable week and now that the sun is finally out, it feels like all is right with the world again. There were lots of events and openings as everyone tries to get things on the calendar before people start leaving for the Hamptons and summer vacations. But if you […]

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 […]

Charming Charleston

04 . 17 . 19

I was going to try to write a post this morning before my friend Andrew Brown arrived from Birmingham but the weather is gorgeous and I want to get outside and explore more of Charleston. The last time I was here it was winter and a little chilly so this weather is a treat. I […]

I had originally planned a different post today but I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the devastating fire at the Cathédrale de Notre-Dame de Paris yesterday. Everyone was in shock that a structure that was built in the 12th-century that had survived the Revolution, World War II, and the elements could be struck […]

I posted about Le Mas des Poiriers in 2017 and I’m still in awe of this property two years later. It’s currently featured on the cover and inside the March/April 2019 issue of Veranda where you read more about the 200 year old farmhouse and it’s extensive property. Renovating and reviving the property was a […]
