Bon Weekend!

04 . 30 . 10

I’m heading down to Soho today to continue my carpet search but where I would really like to be is gallivanting around a pretty garden like Jennifer Garner. I’d also like to wearing the same pretty dresses while the pool boy brings me a glass of lemonade! What’s your weekend fantasy??? Photos by Patrick Demarchelier

Bon Weekend!

There is so much fun stuff going on this weekend that I just had to share it all. Saturday is another One Kings Lane Tastemaker sale and this time it features Windsor Smith. That’s her work above. I had the please of meeting Ms. Smith in LA and she couldn’t have been nicer or more […]

I didn’t realize until recently that the film An Education was actually based on a piece of the same name that appeared in Granta magazine in 2003. That led to a longer memoir by Lynn Barber that picks up where the film leaves off. I am in the middle of reading An Education now and […]

I’m getting my hair done this weekend and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the May 2010 issue of ELLE DECOR will be out on the newsstands in New York. I’d like to have something chic to read and this looks like a great issue. Ellen Pompeo and her home that was designed by Martyn […]

Whitney Biennial

02 . 27 . 10

The New York weather has left something to be desired lately and I can’t think of any better place to escape to than a museum. I’ll admit that sometimes contemporary art leaves me scratching my head but getting out of your comfort zone and the comfort of your own home can be inspiring so I […]

Another Snow Day

02 . 06 . 10

The big news this weekend is the “snow apocalypse” that is scheduled to hit the East Coast. I’ve only seen a few flurries so far but I’ve already decided to stay inside and catch up on work just in case. If you do decide to go outside, I suggest you act like a kid again […]

Black Friday

I’ll be spending this Black Friday enjoying a facial and avoiding the stores! I wish those of you who are brave enough to go shopping Godspeed! And to my non-American readers, Bon Weekend! Photo via Kim Ficaro

Orange is my favorite color and it happens to be the favorite color of a lot of designers. I’ve always wondered why so many of us gravitate toward this color and in the September 2009 color issue of House Beautiful there is a clue. According to their color chart, orange represents creativity. It expands your […]

Bon Weekend!

It’s the weekend and you know what that means…lots of fun summer activities. I’m not sure if it’s going to be a good beach weekend but if you happen to be out in the Hamptons, you should definitely try to attend Matt Albiani’s book signing event for Lifeguard on Duty at T.B.D., a fab new […]

Gone Shoppin’

07 . 10 . 09

I know my posts this week have been short and I apologize. I was joking with friends tonight that I was going to hang a sign on the blog that said Gone Shoppin’ since I’ve been taking advantage of many of the great sales going on in the city this week. Hence the new Roger […]

I hope all my American readers enjoy the long 4th of July holiday weekend. Oh, and let’s keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain! Photo from Markham Roberts

Weekend Chic

07 . 01 . 09

While I was looking through designer Meg Braff‘s portfolio, I came across the most perfect East Hampton home. I love the patterns and shades of blue she used throughout all the spaces. The mudroom is my favorite room and pretty much sums up the feeling of this chic weekend home. I can also imagine how […]

If it turns out to be sunny this weekend, I will be baking myself to a golden glow in order to build up my tan again. But just in case it rains for the 30th day in a row, my alternate plan is to see Cheri at the Paris Theatre. I have a weakness for […]

Wet Weekend

06 . 20 . 09

There is rain forecasted again for this weekend and I can tell you that New Yorkers have just about had it with the weather. But instead of building an ark and collecting the animals two by two, there are a few other good weekend options that are perfect for escaping the deluge. Just make sure […]

Chic Weekend Retreats

05 . 16 . 09

I considered not attending signing party for Susanna Salk‘s new book Weekend Retreats at David Duncan Antiques Thursday night because I was still feeling a little under the weather but I’m glad I went because it was a great event that brought out the big guns of the design world. Interior designer Harry Heissmann (above) […]

I’m off to get my hair done today because you can’t start the next chapter of your life with your roots showing! I want to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment or email me this week. I really appreciate your support and encouragement and I can’t to share all my new […]
