Chic Swirls

07 . 16 . 07

Samantha Boardman Rosen and Aby Rosen’s apartment is another example of the very chic Paul Smith Swirl carpet and Andy Warhol silk screens that seem to be popping up everywhere. I mean, I knew Andy’s factory was prolific but I didn’t realize he was that prolific! P.S. I know this isn’t the best photo because […]

Loft Living

07 . 16 . 07

Everyone at work knows how much I love Domino, so I was excited to see editor Deborah Needleman’s loft profiled in New York Magazine this past spring. The funny thing was that I knew I had seen her bedroom somewhere else and I was right! They used it in a photo spread in the magazine […]

Pop Paradise

Who else but Lisa Perry could envision a pop art paradise in a former monastery on Long Island. Originally published in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens, her family’s home has been transformed with “bright, primary colors, glossy surfaces and playful minimalism”. The LOVE pillows can be found at Calypso home in New York. Maimekko pillows dress […]

Vintage Chic

This is one of my favorite images from the Aerin Lauder Zinterhofer profile in Vogue Living from Fall/Winter 2006. It was shot by Eric Bowman at the Hamptons house that once belonged to her grandmother, Estee Lauder. I live in New York City and rarely drive, but if I did, this is exactly the car […]

Sleek and Chic

07 . 11 . 07

To me, celebrity hairdresser to the stars, Sally Hershberger, epitomizes hip downtown New York style so I was surprised to find out she has a Beverly Hills home and even more surprised that I love it! The white backdrop perfectly sets off the warm wood of her vintage furniture and her enviable art collection. Above […]

If there is one book that is prized above all others for it’s beautiful cover, it’s Osa Johnson’s I Married Adventure. It’s part of my library above and is often styled for magazine shoots like the Vogue photo montage below. Besides being chic and pretty, it’s actually a great read! Martin and Osa Johnson lived […]

While I was perusing the House & Garden Web site, I came across a very interesting Q&A session with designer Kelly Wearstler. Kelly is one of my favorite interior designers and is definitely always habitually chic…except maybe when she crimps her hair but she’s so talented that I might just let her slide on that […]

I’m obsessed with House & Garden magazine! So obsessed, that I end up buying it on the newstand before my subscription copy to arrives, because I can’t stand to wait! One of the perks of living in NYC is that many of the new magazines arrive on the newstands before other cities. (This is actually […]
