Veranda posted pics of this apartment in the Saint Germain neighborhood of Paris on Instagram and now it has me even more excited to rent an apartment next year. It also makes me want to order a new sofa upholstered in a blue/black linen fabric.  I love how all the dark accents and gilt frames […]

I’m still recovering from my fun weekend in the Hamptons and have a lot of photos still to edit.  Until those are ready, I’m leaving you with this beautiful home in Bridgehampton, New York designed by Vicente Wolf. Nothing says the beach like blue and white but what I really love is the interesting art […]

I’m packing my bag and getting ready for a weekend getaway in the Hamptons.  I always feel bad that the Hamptons gets such a bad rap. Granted the traffic is hideous and the party scene can be is a bit ridiculous but it’s the closest place we harried New Yorkers have to unwind.  No wonder […]

Southern Charm

Sometimes I leaf through my new magazines and then throw them on the pile to be fully read later. Sometimes I like a particular interior but forget about it until it pops up later for further consideration. That was the case with this house in Georgia designed by Furlow Gatewood that was featured in Veranda […]

Tuscan Chic

When I first found out that antiques dealer Gerald Bland and his artist wife Mita Corsini Bland had a home in Tuscany, it took all my will power not to beg them to let me visit.  Now that it’s featured in the May/June 2013 issue of Veranda magazine, I’m pretty sure everyone is going to […]

Getting down to Tribeca from the Upper East Side is always a struggle.  None more so than on Friday when  there were no taxis on the road due to a Muslim holiday and no downtown 6 subway trains due to an investigation.  But the Hearst Designer Visions show house was worth the travel effort. It’s […]

The third space in the Hearst Designer Visions Show House was designed by Thomas O’Brien of Aero Studios for Veranda magazine.  He was inspired by the 1987 firm Someone to Watch Over Me starring Mimi Rogers and Tom Berenger.  A bit more by the song of the same name and the prewar glamour of the […]

A friend recently asked for wedding site referrals to help his friend plan her wedding in Barcelona.  While I don’t think it would be right for Spain, his request did remind me that I never posted photos from this fabulous wedding in France.  I saw it in Veranda magazine and all of the details really caught […]

Of all the spaces at Designer Visions at The Setai, I was most excited to see the apartment inspired by Wall Street.  Interior designer Richard Hallberg designed the space for Veranda and imagined where Gordon Gekko would live after he was released from prison.  He would certainly still be collecting art and living well.  What […]

The final townhouse in the Designer Visions series was designed by John Saladino for Veranda and was inspired by Girl with a Pearl Earring. Apparently Mr. Saladino does not normally participate in showhouses so this was quite a coup. Girl with a Pearl Earring is set in 17th-century Netherlands and this showhouse has more literal […]
