Chic in Cartagena

01 . 08 . 13

While perusing my favorite websites this morning, I feel in love with these pics of a gorgeous casa in Cartagena, Colombia on Into the Gloss. Editor Alessandra Codinha was a guest over the holidays and shared some pics. I have a sample of the orange and pink Manuel Canovas toile fabric above that I’ve been […]

Uptown Chic

01 . 07 . 13

While cleaning out some magazines as part of my New Year’s resolution to be more organized, I came across this fabulous home.  It’s owned by Harry Slatkin and his family  and was featured in the August 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  You may know them from their fabulous candle company but Harry is also one […]

The Hogwarts House

12 . 20 . 12

I learned of another great designer recently, Rose Uniacke, whose London home is featured here.  She is not only an interior designer but the owner of a chic shop on Pimlico Road.  A love of antiques seems to run in the family.  Her mother, Hilary Batstone, also owned a shop for which Rose bought pieces […]

Someone posted a photo of the work of designer Pablo Pariagua yesterday on Pinterest and I can’t believe I’ve never heard of him before. Especially since it’s so my type of style.  This home he designed in Malaga, Spain was featured in Nuevo Estilo and might just be my new favorite space.  It’s classic and […]

I had to go to multiple stores yesterday to find a copy of the Wall Street Journal with the December WSJ Magazine insert.  If you missed it yesterday, you can luckily read all the stories online.  You should definitely read All the Pretty Houses about designer Daniel Romualdez and his gorgeous homes seen here and […]

The Chic Family

11 . 27 . 12

Make sure you pick up the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  It’s chock full of fabulous fashion and a look inside Patricia Herrera Lansing’s New York apartment. You can also read the entire story here. I can’t decide what I want more now, a ball gown or a teepee!   Photos by Christopher Sturman 

European Eclectic

11 . 14 . 12

I had planned to work on this post from the plane yesterday but the wifi had other ideas.  That’s what I get for flying Delta instead of Virgin America.  But I digress.  I was catching up on my magazine reading when I noticed how much I loved Harper’s Bazaar UK editor Kim Hersov’s London home […]

Tommy’s Turf

11 . 08 . 12

One of my favorite things that have come about because of my blog has been my friendship with interior designer Tommy Smythe.  I used to watch him on Design Inc. with Sarah Richardson and literally laugh out loud at all his funny quips.  Now I get to experience them in person and this time on […]

I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve never been to San Francisco so I’m getting excited about my upcoming trip. There are so many great interior designers in the city including Stephen Shubel. I was checking out his new website and all my favorite projects of his including this loft that also served as his office. […]

Getting down to Tribeca from the Upper East Side is always a struggle.  None more so than on Friday when  there were no taxis on the road due to a Muslim holiday and no downtown 6 subway trains due to an investigation.  But the Hearst Designer Visions show house was worth the travel effort. It’s […]

Sick Day Substitute

10 . 16 . 12

Of all the scenarios I thought would play out at High Point Furniture Market, getting sick did not figure into the mix.  A nasty cold has completely felled me and ravaged my throat.  Until I can get it together, I’m leaving you with photos from the townhouse Jeffrey Bilhuber redesigned for Trey Laird and his […]

Lovely in Lonny

10 . 11 . 12

I’m knee deep in preparations (styling, cleaning, hiding magazines) for a photo shoot in my apartment Friday.  That is definitely the reason for lighter posts this week. If you need something more to read, I highly suggest heading over to Lonny magazine to read the October issue.  It’s chock full of fabulous interiors including this […]

I live for the days when I find a new issue of Australia Vogue Living on the newsstand.  It’s always full of interesting and chic interiors and the September/October 2012 issue features my new favorite home.  I also found a few other pics on a blog that allow you to see a little more of […]

50 Shades of Grey

10 . 03 . 12

You really didn’t think I could post about grey and not use that title right?  It rained all day yesterday in New York and this morning is foggy and gross.  Of course that got me thinking about my favorite non-color color, grey.  I love all the shades and how well it pairs with brown and […]

Pretty in Pink

09 . 26 . 12

Long time readers will remember my aversion to pink.  After growing up in a pink bedroom, I can’t even imagine ever living with the color again.  But just because it’s not right for me doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate it in someone else’s home.  I don’t know journalist Alina Cho but I often see her […]

Dazzling Design

09 . 17 . 12

I love talking to other new authors about the process of making a book.  We all agree that there was a huge learning curve but now that we know what we’re doing, we’re ready to start book two. Such is the case with interior designer Amanda Nisbet.  Her new book Dazzling Design has just been […]

Chic in Tribeca

09 . 14 . 12

One of my pet peeves that I shared in the new issue of Domino magazine is when when everything looks like it was delivered from the same store on the same day.  You definitely can’t say that about the Tribeca apartment that Vera Wang executive Mario Grauso shares with Brood designer Serkan Sarier featured in […]
