While Memorial Day is a time we should be remembering and honoring people who have died while serving in the United States Armed Forces, it also signifies the unofficial start of summer in the US. More people than ever will be traveling this year to celebrate the long weekend since most couldn’t go anywhere last year. […]

No one renovates Sag Harbor houses better than Steven Gambrel and a house he designed from the ground up at 52 Glover Street has just come on the market for $6,995,000. Considering that it’s turnkey ready and within very easy walking distance Main Street, makes it a pretty good deal. If you’re not convinced, you […]

Last week, the heat was still on in my building because it was so cold. Now, it’s so hot that I’ve had to turn on the air conditioning. I’ve been frantically trying to get my summer wardrobe together now that everything is open and back to normal in New York. If you need help too, […]

Paris just opened after lockdown today and Americans are chomping at the bit to go to the City of Light. I usually don’t like to visit Europe in the summer and will probably wait until the fall. That was my plan until I saw the newly unveiled Bourse de Commerce Pinault Collection art venue that […]

I always pass by this townhouse at 46 East 73rd Street on my walk to Madison Avenue and Central Park. I’ve long admired the glossy black door and topiaries so when the holiday decorations from 2019 stayed up for all of last year, I decided to investigated who owned it. Turns out that it’s Gayfryd […]

It feels like Chairish is the new One Kings Lane. I used to love the house features and interviews on OKL but they were long gone so it’s nice to see some on the Chairish Blog now. Lauren Santo Domingo of Moda Operandi was just profiled and we get to see a few new spaces […]

Lovely Lilacs at Home

05 . 15 . 21

I haven’t bought lilacs yet this spring but after seeing so many beautiful bouquets on Instagram, I think it’s going to be the first thing I do tomorrow. I especially love the arrangement above that Kate Brodsky recently received for Mother’s Day. These were the lilacs I bought and arranged last year. In order to […]

One of the most exciting collaborations of fashion and design is launching for VIP customers early and then to the general public on Tuesday, May 11th. Schumacher fabrics are gracing five classic shoe styles from Margaux. I was lucky to be sent the Ballet Mule and I just ordered the the Demi Ballet Flat. They […]

The new summer 2021 collection from Sézane just launched today and I could easily see them in an Eric Rohmer film. The timeless French girl look always works for summer and I’ve already placed my order. The best part is that shipping is free over $200 and there are free returns if something doesn’t work. […]

Tulip season is over in New York and the city is now lush and green. Traffic is back too which is a sure sign the city is back to normal. It’s going to be a bit chilly and rainy here this weekend which makes it perfect for watching a new show or movie if you’re […]

If you’re ready for summer and trips to the beach, the new H&M x Lemlem Collection is for you. It’s filled with light and airy pieces and swimsuits to get you started and even a towel with a cute rope carrier. I already placed my order and can’t wait to get the cute striped dresses […]

Everyone who saw the renovated 19th-century farmhouse of Luis Laplace and his partner Christophe Comoy on the island of Menorca in the WSJ. Magazine this weekend immediately fell in love. It’s probably because we haven’t been able to travel to abroad in over a year but it’s also because it doesn’t look overdone or too […]

Perfect Pairing 2021

05 . 04 . 21

It’s time to post about my favorite outfit again. I didn’t post about it last year because we really weren’t going anywhere but now that things are opening up, I think it’s the perfect time. A white top or ivory blouse with jeans is chic yet comfortable and can be worn anywhere. If it’s chilly, […]

Interior designer Todd Alexander Romano has always been a favorite of mine. I posted his New York apartment early on when I started blogging and his beautiful room for the 2012 Kips Bay Decorator Show House and followed his subsequent apartment moves. Now Todd is splitting his time between a historic 18th-century house in Newport, […]

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.”–  Edwin Way Teale

I was planning on posting something else today but then I saw that Bergdorf Goodman is having a 30% off Beauty Sale on select products. The brands included are pretty amazing too. It would be a great time to treat yourself or find some great Mother’s Day presents. There are even a large number of […]

It’s going to be 80 degrees here on Wednesday. Time for a pedicure and a new pair of sandals. I’ve picked out 24 of my favorite pairs if you’re ready to change out of your sweats and put on some chic shoes again. I’m personally not ready to wear heels again but I saw many […]

I loved seeing Suzanne Rheinstein‘s Montecito house in Architectural Digest but I didn’t realize what a major renovation she undertook until I saw the old real estate listing photos and before photos. The architecture firm, Bories and Shearron, who worked on the house with Suzanne posted some of the before photos of the house built […]

The temperature in New York has been vacillating wildly lately but at least it looks like it will be beautiful on Saturday. I’m going to try to take another walk on Park Avenue to enjoy the tulips and cherry trees at their peak before rain arrives on Sunday. That actually works out perfectly so I […]

You probably couldn’t get together for last Mother’s Day but that might not be the case this year thanks to the vaccines. That means you’ll be able to give your mom or mother figure a gift in person this year on May 9th. Many mothers have been isolated at home while others have been juggling […]
