February feels like it’s flying by but there’s still a lot of new things to do, see, watch, and try this month. The Madison Avenue Diptyque store took over the neighboring space and renovated to create one of the most beautiful boutiques in the city now and the biggest Diptyque store in the US. The […]

Last year, my Instagram friend Julien Devergnies asked me if I knew of the publication Frederic and what I thought since they reached out to see if they could photograph his house in Brussels. I was happy to advise him that it’s a wonderful magazine published by the fabric company Schumacher. I receive a physical […]

Last year, someone I follow on Instagram posted a few photos just inside 973 Fifth Avenue. The decor looked very intriguing but I couldn’t find much about the house online then. When I posted an exterior photo of the front door in my Instagram Stories last week, a kind follower alerted me to the fact […]

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a dinner to celebrate the launch of the new Remy Renzullo x Carolina Irving & Daughters, Olympia and Ariadne Irving, collection launch on Moda Operandi. I haven’t seen Remy in person in years since he’s been spending more of his time in London working on Castle Howard. […]

I thought I would be a little more gung-ho to start this year but I forgot just how uninspiring January can be. It’s not an exciting new seasonal start like fall which has beautiful weather and all new fashions. It’s freezing cold and snowy in New York which makes everyone want to hunker down at […]

I took some time off last week for a quick trip to Boston but now that I’m back, I need to get started on all my apartment organizing and decluttering projects. The big issue most people tackle in the new year is the dreaded closet clean out. I usually post a closet inspiration post each […]

One thing I wish I had asked for as a Christmas present is a stay at the Abbaye des Vaux de Cernay. The country estate hotel outside Paris has been completely renovated and updated by the French hospitality group, Paris Society. The location was originally a 12th-century Cistercian abbey and later a weekend estate of […]

I still can’t believe that 2024 is here. It feels like just yesterday when we were staying home in 2020. Time flies when you may or may not be having fun. But I love fresh starts and new beginnings. I love making lists and cracking open a fresh Smythson agenda just waiting to be filled […]

Merry Christmas 2023

12 . 25 . 23

After taking off a busy pre-holiday week, I’m back to wish you a very Merry Christmas. I joked with a friend recently that I thrive when everyone else is away since it gives me some quiet time to do things without distraction so expect some blog posts between now and the year. That is my […]

If you’ve walked down Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris in the past few years, you might have noticed a renovation project happening by Chopard. It was actually for their newly polished gem, 1 Place Vendôme, a five-star hotel located in an 18th-century six-story mansion that was originally designed for Louis XIV’s secretary Pierre Perrin. Paris-based architecture […]

The temperature has finally turned cold this week in New York which means I’m swathed from head to toe in grey cashmere and wool. Grey is always my go to color for late fall and winter since it’s the perfect complement for my hair color and doesn’t show lint like black. It also pairs well […]

Sometimes I forget that interior designer Remy Renzullo is so young since his style is so evolved. His apartments look as they belong to collector who’s lived in them for decades which is no doubt why is was tapped to refresh and redesign rooms at Castle Howard. It’s the perfect project for his sensibilities and […]

It also means you will need something to wear and ME+EM has you covered with many chic options whether you like to be a little dressed up or a lot. As I’ve mentioned a few times, red […]

Laurent

10 . 26 . 23

Laurent restaurant has been a storied place in Paris since 1842 but it has recently undergone a refresh from the Paris Society group. I first made aware of the project when Cordélia de Castellane posted from inside the renovation. She’s been in charge of decor for many Paris Society restaurants including Laurent which has “pastel-colored […]

I put together 15 of the chicest options inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow’s on and off screen coat wardrobe. You can also save 30% of select pieces during the […]
