George Wythe House

02 . 27 . 20

I spent a very busy summer traveling last year. So busy in fact that I still haven’t even had a chance to go through all my photos. I had been thinking about finally getting to them and starting with a post on the George Wythe House in Colonial Williamsburg when interior designer Caroline Gidiere mentioned […]

Interior designer Suzanne Kasler was tasked with designing the Great Room in the 2020 Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach but the room was far from great when she first saw it. The large double-height asymmetrical room was devoid of architectural details and light. “What was great about the space was the volume, […]

Lemondrop Lullaby

05 . 20 . 18

It’s been reported that Harry and Meghan, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are keen to have children as soon as possible. You could see Harry turn to Meghan and smile when family was mentioned during their wedding ceremony. I wouldn’t be surprised if the palace announced a pregnancy later this year. When the […]

One of the driving principles of who I post on Habitually Chic is that the person must be nice. And not just nice to me. One person who is niceness personified is interior designer Michael Herold who designed by foyer at the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I arrived later than expected to the […]

This first Aquazzura for de Gournay Collection that debuted last year was a huge hit so it’s no surprise that they are back together again this spring. The first partnership was pink and this latest Aquazzura for de Gournay Amazonia collaboration is blue just like the de Gournay showroom in San Francisco that I saw last […]

As you know, there is nothing I love more than when fashion and interior design collide. No where is this more exciting than the partnership between Aquazzura and de Gournay. You may have already seen them online but the five styles of the Aquazzura for de Gournay shoe collection are finally available exclusively at Matchesfashion.com. They […]

Farrow & Ball has just launched a collection of wallpapers inspired by 19th and 20th-century French archive fashion fabrics. To celebrate, they asked me t curate a palette of Farrow & Ball paint colors and wallpapers inspired by my favorite city in the world. I chose Hague Blue because it looks like the color of blue doors, […]

Enjoy the Silence

04 . 13 . 14

When people ask me if I know what post has been the most popular in the almost seven years of writing Habitually Chic, I don’t even have to think.  I know it’s the post about Jenna Lyons’ brownstone in Brooklyn, Jenna Lyons Home: The Complete View from 2009. When I was photographing her for my book Creativity […]

Fab Finds for the Home

03 . 19 . 13

As I’ve mentioned before, I love shopping on Fab because you really can find everything you could ever want all in one place.  When they asked me to curate another post, I thought it might be fun to highlight some of their home items.  As we approach the Passover and Easter holidays, you might want […]

Map Quest: Part Deux

07 . 25 . 10

When I posted about maps in the post Map Quest two years ago, I only had a few examples to share. Now there are not only more examples of maps as art and wallpaper but also maps painted on walls and ceilings. If papering an entire bedroom as Steven Gambrel did above seems daunting, you […]

Secondhand Rose

03 . 11 . 10

I had powder rooms on the brain yesterday because I was ordering vintage wallpaper panels from Secondhand Rose for the powder room of my downtown project. When I went to pick them up, I couldn’t resist taking a few photos to show you the extent of their collection of vintage wallpapers. They are amazing! The […]

Powder rooms are a great place to go a little crazy because you are less likely to get bored by the design since you don’t have to look at it that often. It’s also fun to wow your guests since they are the ones most likely to use the powder room. One of the easiest […]
