Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

Sears Cottage

06 . 10 . 20

Some of you might remember that my friend Grant Gibson spends time in Maine every summer. I asked him today if he still planned to go since they have a two week quarantine for anyone coming into the state. I have read they might change this since most of the businesses in the state depend […]

There is nothing I find more vulgar that people who redecorate their home just so they can have it published again. If it’s done right the first time, you should never have to do it again. Such was the case with the Fifth Avenue apartment of Susan Gutfreund and her late husband John that was […]

I was first seated next to interior designer Mario Buatta at an event over ten years ago. He couldn’t have been more excited to have a fresh person to surprise with his fake cockroach prank. Decorating should be fun and it was refreshing that he didn’t take it all so seriously even though he worked […]

Art historian and biographer Sir John Richardson passed away in March of this year at the age of 95 leaving behind a legacy of wonderful books and beautifully designed homes. His Connecticut estate already sold and now his New York apartment and studio has just come on the market with Compass for $7,200,000. The 5,400 […]

Have you ever dreamed of living the luxurious life of Valentino and his business partner and friend Giancarlo Giammetti? Well, now you can since they are selling their lavish summer home, Villa La Vagnola, in Tuscany for €12 million or $13,297,872 USD. The duo bought the property in 1986 and previously listed for sale in […]

Glover House

06 . 19 . 19

Another house I love on Main Street in Sag Harbor is just coming up for sale. The Glover House was built by master craftsman Benjamin Glover in 1810 in the classic tradition and flair of a true Captain’s house. In 1850, the neighboring carriage house was combined with the house for Glover’s daughter to live […]

Palazzo Nasciaro

06 . 04 . 19

I came across an article about Palazzo Nasciaro on House & Garden today and was blown away by its beauty. It’s actually an old story from around 2016 when the property was for sale but it’s still inspiring. British millionaire author Paul Golding bought the 18th-century palazzo on the remote island of Malta around 10 […]

If you’ve ever driven through East Hampton, then you’ve probably seen this beautiful white house that sits at the intersection of Main Street and Woods Lane. It’s currently on the market for $12.5 Million which means we can all see inside now. The house at 6 Woods Lane was completely renovated in 1992 but was […]

Every time I look at real estate listings, I always wish I could go in and take better and more detailed photos. I mentioned to my friend Chris Kann that if he ever had any listings he thought I would like that I would love to tag along. My wish was granted a few weeks […]

For Sale in Suffolk

01 . 22 . 19

I posted about the English Country Home of Jeremy Langmead and Simon Rayner almost four years ago. Since then, Jeremy moved from Christie’s to Mr. Porter and the duo moved into another home in Suffolk with interior design by Susan Deliss which is now for sale because they have a new home project in the […]

Steven Gambrel has been at it again. He recently renovated the Captain Osborne Edwards House from 1854 at 27 Suffolk Street in Sag Harbor with Timeless Homes and now it can be yours for $6,795,000 via Corcoran. The six bedroom home has been updated with modern conveniences including a pool and pool/guest house and all those […]

Edgemont

Since I wasn’t able to work while I was away in Charlottesville last week, I’ve been playing catch up all this week. I had wanted to post my photos from Monticello today but I just didn’t have any time to edit them so they will have to wait until next week. While looking for something […]

One Sutton Place

09 . 13 . 18

I posted this house with the iconic blue door on Instagram last week and two days later, I found out it is actually for sale from the estate of the late Drue Heinz who died in April and includes interiors designed by Renzo Mongiardino. The classic brick Georgian townhouse at One Sutton Place was designed […]

Turn Key Townhouse

07 . 11 . 18

Are you looking to move to into a turn key townhouse in New York designed by a renowned interior designer?  If your answer is yes, 68 Morton Street is for you. Steven Gambrel has found a new property to restore and renovate so his current home is for sale for $8,995,000. A 25-foot wide townhouse […]

The Sheiling

07 . 03 . 18

There is nothing I love more than looking at real estate listings while traveling. I passed quite a few houses on Nantucket that I later realized were for sale. One was a famous brick home at 93 Main Street and another was a charming, albeit expensive, cottage at 8 Old North Wharf. I didn’t pass […]

I have donated to Housing Works for years and I love supporting this wonderful organization. When pr powerhouse James LaForce invited me to sit at his table for the Housing Works Groundbreaker Awards Dinner last night, I immediately said yes. Before dinner, we were able to check out the Design on a Dime vignettes designed […]
