All posts in bon weekend

The other day I noticed a running theme on my Instagram feed. The color yellow kept popping up just like the daffodils all over the city. I thought it would be fun to pull them all together for a post including one from J.Crew above. Bon week-end ! HC Michael Traynor @mjtraynor is visiting Copenhagen, Denmark and […]

It feels like winter again in New York but it looks like spring on the cover of the new May 2015 issue of Elle Decor. I love the floral fabric that Kate Rheinstein Brodsky chose for the upholstery and that gorgeous marble topped console table in her living room on the cover. Kate was kind […]

Au Revoir Paris

03 . 13 . 15

I’m getting ready to head to Charles de Gaulle and I don’t don’t want to leave Paris.  This has been such a fun and exciting trip.  The weather could not have been more perfect too. Michelle and I saw and did so much (and bought so much!) that it probably is a good thing we’re […]

Gone to the Dogs

03 . 07 . 15

We’ve only been in Paris two days but we’ve already seen and done so much.  It’s a great trip already and it’s really only just begun.  Yesterday, we sat outside in the glorious warm sun at La Bonaparte for lunch where I made friends with the chien next to us. Later, I passed another man and […]

Bath Time

02 . 27 . 15

I kept seeing images from the living room above on Tumblr and finally decided to investigate. Turns out they are from the home of Rosa Park and Rich Stapleton, the founder of Cereal magazine, that were featured on Freunde von Freunden. Not only is the apartment interesting but it’s location in Bath, England is a […]

In the Buff

01 . 30 . 15

As many of you know, I don’t love pink but I do love a pale buff version of pink.  While I’m not ready to break out bold colors for spring just yet, I am adding a bit of buff to my grey ensembles. It’s a color that plays well with others in fashion and interior design. […]

As someone who studied art history, I obviously have a love of everything artistic.  I will admit that even I don’t understand some contemporary art though. My visit to Art Basel has opened my eyes to many new artists and galleries.  I hope to recap my trip soon and introduce you to some of what […]

Chic Duality

12 . 05 . 14

For some reason, I thought I would be able to get work done while I am in Miami.  I see how silly that was now.  Things have been crazy here so I will resume with my holiday gift guides on Sunday when I’m back in New York. Until then, I leave you with this amazing […]

I almost bought a last minute flight to Paris for this weekend because my favorite brocante ia happening in the Marais.  It didn’t end up working out so instead of going to Paris, I brought Paris to me. When I was living there this summer, I fell in love with jewelry by Marion Vidal after […]

I’m having a great time in the Napa Valley. The weather has been perfect and the wine plentiful. What more could you ask for?!  Bon week-end!   View from Dutch Henry Winery by me.

It was announced yesterday that Chris Benz was appointed the new creative director of Bill Blass. CHris is one of the nicest and funniest people I know so I could not be more happy for him.  He recently closed his fashion business and had been focused on renovating his new house. I was wondering if […]

I was talking to someone recently about what luxury means.  We both agreed that it doesn’t always have to mean something expensive. For me, luxury means the little things that brighten my world like fresh flower. In New York, we’re lucky to have a bodega on every corner selling flowers so it’s easy and inexpensive […]

Sorry for the light posts this week. I’m still trying to get caught up from my summer abroad. I have some great posts planned for next week to make up for this so make sure you check back.  In the meantime, I’m sharing a photo I posted on Instagram this morning.  Hyacinths are usually only available […]

Masculine in Milan

09 . 12 . 14

Just a reminder that the WSJ. Magazine will be included in the Wall Street Journal newspaper on Saturday, September 13th. It’s the Men’s Issue which  is chock full of stories that will appeal to everyone  including a cover feature on Pharrell Williams.  I already an advance copy, and one story that I really appreciated was a profile of […]

I’ve been home for a week now and feels really good to be back.  I love that I can shop on Sundays and get anything I want delivered at any time.  It’s also been great to see my friends and my favorite people in the neighborhood. Oh, and yes I got an amazing manicure and pedicure […]

Au Revoir Paris

08 . 19 . 14

Today is the day I say au revoir to Paris.  Or maybe I should say à bientôt since I will definitely be back again soon. Time really does fly when you’re having fun.  I am sad to be living the City of Light but I am also excited to get back to New York.  I can’t […]
