I love how Instagram introduces you to people who love the same things and I’m so glad it’s how I met Brian Branton. While we have not met in real life yet, I feel like I know him well after following along on his Christmas decorating this year. While I was buying dried pomanders and […]

My Visit to Monticello

10 . 29 . 18

When I invited to Charlottesville at the end of September, it seemed serendipitous since I had already been looking into trips to Virginia to tour Monticello, the home of statesman Thomas Jefferson. I added a few days onto the trip and made plans to visit with interior designer Andrew Brown. He wasn’t going to arrive […]

Since I wasn’t able to work while I was away in Charlottesville last week, I’ve been playing catch up all this week. I had wanted to post my photos from Monticello today but I just didn’t have any time to edit them so they will have to wait until next week. While looking for something […]

I’m back from my whirlwind week in Charlottesville, Virginia and I feel like I’m still recovering. The first 36 Hours in Charlottesville Wine Country were jam packed with chef’s tasting meals and wine tastings in beautiful bucolic settings. I’m recapping this part of my trip here and will put together a travel guide to Charlottesville […]

It’s hard not to scroll through Instagram at night instead of reading but I’m trying to remedy this issue. I’ve […]

Southern Retreat

09 . 26 . 17

I have been following Marina Rust on Instagram for a while and was wondering what she was doing in Virginia. My question was answered in the August 2017 issue of Vogue. She and her family had bought a red brick Georgian farm house on a rolling hill where they spend as many weekends and holidays […]

The Sale of the Year

10 . 09 . 14

Even though it’s still October, everyone is breathless in anticipation for the Sotheby’s auction in November of the Property from the Collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon, otherwise known as Bunny Mellon.  Over 2,000 items will be up for sale from the Mellon residences which will benefit The Gerard B. Lambert Foundation, a charitable entity established by Mrs. Mellon in […]

There have been a lot of articles written about philanthropist, art collector, and avid gardener Bunny Mellon since she passed away this spring at the age of 103. What makes the story The Eloquence of Silence in T magazine today so different is that it was written and photographed by interior designer Charlotte Moss who […]
