All posts in bon weekend

It’s no secret that I love orange.  From burnt to bright, it always makes me happy.  It always looks great with neutrals like in the room by Jeffrey Bilhuber above, but also with pale and charcoal grey.  Bon Weekend!  Vogue UK Elle Decor Vogue UK Elle Decor J.Crew Bennett Chino Gil Schafer Tory Burch Blouse […]

Exceptional Gardens

09 . 02 . 11

This post is also a repeat but since it’s from May 2008, you might not remember it.  The garden is featured in a lovely book Exceptional Gardens that was originally published in Belgium.  The name really says it all and it’s filled with gorgeous green gardens around Europe.  Also a reminder to get out and […]

Summer Repeat

09 . 02 . 11

I’m trying to enjoy my last few days of summer so I’m taking a little time off.  Instead of leaving you high and dry, I am reposting one of my favorite summer houses from the Hamptons.  (If TV can repeat shows, why can’t I repeat posts?!)  The house belongs to Helen Lee and Tim Schifter and […]

Happy Hydrangea

06 . 10 . 11

Part of my job for the Microsoft Preview event includes picking out and styling the flowers.  Hydrangea will definitely be on my shopping list. If you are lucky enough to live in an area with abundant bushes, you can just go right outside and cut them.  I will be picking mine up from the Flower District […]

Bon Weekend

05 . 27 . 11

Here in America, we will be enjoying a long Memorial Day weekend starting today.  The UK will also be observing a Bank Holiday on Monday in preparation of summer.  While my friends down under in Australia are preparing for Autumn. No matter where you live, I hope you will spend some time relaxing outside.  Here’s […]

I recently had the pleasure of attending a fun party and dinner to celebrate the relaunch of Serena & Lily.  Andy Spade and his creative team at Partners & Spade reworked the Serena & Lily logo which can now be seen on their new summer catalog and website.  While Serena & Lily is a sponsor, I would […]

Chic in Chambray

04 . 15 . 11

Technically, this post should be titled Chic in Chambray and Denim Shirts but that didn’t have the same ring just Chic in Chambray.  I used to wear chambray and denim shirts in college until they were practically falling apart but tossed them aside after I moved to New York.  As these photos suggest, chambray, denim and […]

I am still editing all my photos from High Point but decided to take a break today.  While catching up on my favorite websites, I was excited to read on Vogue.com that there is a book about to be released about my favorite artist Joan Mitchell. While I absolutely love Joan Mitchell’s abstract paintings, I […]

Chic and Cozy Cottage

02 . 19 . 11

It’s a long holiday weekend and that means many people will be getting away.  Designer Stephen Shubel‘s chic fisherman’s cottage in Sausalito looks like a chic yet cozy place spend some time off.  He describes it as being “like Marie Antoinette in a t-shirt…the past recreated for today.”  He mixes French furniture with nautical touches that […]

Under the Tuscan Sun

01 . 07 . 11

Big flakes of snow are coming down in New York but it’s not getting me down because I’m dreaming of Italy.  When I first saw Castello di Vicarello in Vogue, I couldn’t wait to check out their website for more photos.  It’s even more gorgeous than I thought but also made me disappointed that I didn’t win the […]

See you Sunday!

08 . 27 . 10

I thought August was when everyone was supposed to be away.  Seems it’s not and I’ve never been busier so I’m taking a few days off to relax.  I’ll be back next week refreshed and renewed. I will also have lots of good posts for you including my visit with artist Jeremiah Goodman.  Bon Weekend! […]

Chic in the Hamptons

05 . 22 . 10

I’m off to the Hamptons this weekend and you know this trip wasn’t without some serious outfit consideration. While the city calls for sophisticated ensembles for meetings and business, the Hamptons allows me to get my Prep on. It’s also about 10 degrees cooler which requires layers which is why I pulled out my navy […]
