I watched the new film Silent Night that was written and directed by Camille Griffin over the weekend. It’s filled with lovely British actors like Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Annabelle Wallis, and Roman Griffin-Davis among others, who gather on Christmas Day in the English countryside. “As the group comes together, it feels like old times […]

Pajama Party 2021

12 . 10 . 21

I’ve spent the whole week at home in my pajamas and realized I could use a few new pairs. They’re also fun for the whole family to wear to open presents on Christmas morning. If your family could use an upgrade on your sleepwear, I’ve picked out some of the cutest solids, prints and plaids […]

My final gift guide was delayed due to travel and holiday events. And also because of those events last week, I’m now at home nursing a cold. It’s the first time I’ve been sick since 2018 so I guess I was due. (I know it’s not Covid because I took a test.) If you haven’t […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a love/hate relationship with the HBO show Succession. I don’t like the nouveau riche ridiculousness but I do love it when they shoot on location at a historic house. Episode Eight of Season Three which just aired on Sunday, was shot this past summer in Italy and might be […]

I was going through old post when I came across the beautiful Park Avenue apartment of Fernanda Kellogg and Kirk Henckels decorated for Christmas from the November/December 2016 issue of Veranda. I love the elegant details they’ve added to each room and thought it was definitely worth reposting. I’ve combined those photos with non-holiday photos from Architectural […]

If you are searching for that perfect holiday gift for someone you love, or for yourself, my friend Heidi Wynne has you covered. Her line is classic and was designed to be enjoyed for years to come. Luxurious cashmere wraps, fair isle seaters, and fisherman knits will keep you cozy, warm, and chic for the […]

I rarely buy magazines anymore, I just read them online, but I’m glad I picked up the latest issue of Vogue while I was traveling last week. Featured inside is the treasure-filled French country house of John Galliano and Alexis Roche photographed by François Halard. He worked on the interiors with Daniel Slowik, formerly at […]

When I lived in Paris in 2014, I spent two months living right next to Le Bon Marché, one of my favorite places in the City of Light. I spent a lot of time shopping at the department store and Le Grand Èpicerie so they hold a special place in my heart. Since I’ve been […]

Black Friday 2021

11 . 25 . 21

Now that you’ve stuffed your face with turkey and pie, you can stuff your shopping cart with Black Friday deals. I usually post these on the day after Thanksgiving but many sales have started early and those of you who receive the email subscription will receive them on Black Friday morning. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy […]

Quilting Bee

11 . 22 . 21

When I was in Boston recently, I made sure I reserved tickets to the Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts that highlights stories behind 300 years of American quilts. Even before that, I was thinking of putting together a post on quilted jackets and fashion so I then […]

Thank you for all the great feedback on my first two holiday gift guides. I’m sorry some things have already sold out but we’ve put together more than 40 new gift suggestions that are currently in stock that I think your friends and family will love. I love to start each of my gift guides […]

Central Park is finally at peak leaf peeping season and could not look more beautiful, as you can see from my photo above, and events are back in full swing. Here’s what’s new and noteworthy in the city and beyond. Salon Art + Design which features over 50 of the world’s most influential galleries in art, architecture, and design […]

I know it feels like we’ve all skipped over Thanksgiving and moved straight to Christmas so I felt like I had to give this November holiday some love. All week, I’ve been putting together some chic decorations and accessories for your Thanksgiving table. The best thing about them is that they can be used year […]

When I saw this 17th-century Cotswold cottage of former Sotheby’s specialist and now interior designer James Mackie in House and Garden, I thought it looked familiar. Then I realized it was because I was following James on Instagram. My favorite accounts to follow are those in Europe and especially England since country living it’s such […]

I found so many great gift options I couldn’t fit them all in my first gift guide so I decided to post my second gift guide this week too. As we know, there could be shipping delays and supply chain issues, it’s best to shop early for everyone on your list. Do you have a […]

Denbigh Farm Interiors

11 . 03 . 21

In February, I posted about the amazing Denbigh Farm property for sale in Greenwich, Connecticut by Susie Hilfiger for $40 Million. Since then, it’s had a price reduction to $29,997,000 which seems like a bargain when you consider not only the size and historic significance of the house but the 17.2 acres on which sits […]

I know some people will think this holiday gift guide is too early and others will be excited because they can start shopping now. I’m posting earlier than usual because retailers are worried about shipping delays and since most people shop online each year. I like to mix up my gift guides for items for […]

It’s finally turned cold enough to wear a coat and I’m loving the look of tan shearling coats for fall. It’s a classic look that worked on Robert Redford and Ryan O’Neal in the 1970s and still looks good today. I’ve put together some real and faux options for women, men, and even a little […]
