At this time of year, not only do I think of changing out my closet for fall but also my home.  I switch out my lighter summer pillows for heavier wool pillows from Judy Ross.  I sometimes also change the color of the cashmere throw on my sofa.  From the look of these autumnal inspired […]

One of my readers left a comment on my last post about how mirrored walls usually look tacky but that it looks beautiful in Gilles Mendel’s duplex.  Mirrored walls used to get a bad rap but they are great for opening up spaces and reflecting light which is necessary in many small New York apartments.  I especially […]

Living in New York affords the wonderful opportunity to attend so many lovely events and last night was no exception.  Bunny Williams opened up her beautiful and spacious office to a group of editors and bloggers for cocktails and a sneak peek at some of her upcoming endeavors.  Her BeeLine Home Collection II will debut […]

Come Sail Away

07 . 18 . 10

Matt Albiani’s homes reminded me of how much I love nautical accents. These homes took it a step further by displaying model sailboats. Some are small and some are rather quite large, but they all look perfectly at home inside. Enjoy! Boat for sale at the Stamford Antique Center Vogue Living Unknown Phoebe Howard Phoebe […]

Cocteau’s Chic Abode

07 . 08 . 10

I don’t really need another reason to visit Paris again but I’ve found one anyway. Jean Cocteau’s home at Milly-la-Forêt is now open to the public for tours. Cocteau lived in the home, an hour outside Paris, from 1947 until his death in 1963. Pierre Bergé acquired the property in 2002 and spearheaded the renovation […]

Summer Rerun

06 . 30 . 10

I’m busy working today and trying to get through a thousand annoying emails so I’m posting an oldie but a goodie from 2008. This fabulous house in the Hamptons used to belong to Steven Gambrel before friends of LA designer Ruthie Sommers bought it and asked her to decorate the place. I love the colors […]

I saw the Italian film I Am Love this past weekend and it was as gorgeous as I thought it would be. I’m not sure the actual story will appeal to everyone but it’s worth seeing for the beautiful interiors. The Recchi family live in Milan in a fabulous villa that is actually the Villa […]

DVF Home Collection

06 . 21 . 10

Usually summer is a quiet time when not much happens but that’s not the case this year! There are so many exciting developments in the design world and one of my favorites is Diane von Furstenberg‘s new home collection. I had the pleasure to see her fabulous collaboration with Springs Global last week and was […]

Bella in Barcelona

06 . 20 . 10

Since it’s Father’s Day, I thought I would post something a little more masculine. I came across this amazing home and studio in Spanish AD a few months ago and have been salivating over it ever since. It belongs to designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán and is located in Barcelona. He has designed the interiors for more […]

Work of Art: Part Deux

06 . 10 . 10

I found more photos of Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn’s fabulous townhouse on Diana Viñoly‘s website. Now you can see the chic kitchen, children’s bedrooms, and master bedroom and bath. It’s also interesting to see how the living room looks with different artwork installed. Enjoy!

You really didn’t think I would post about Valentino without also posting photos from one of his fabulous homes did you? I’ve been saving images of his Jacques Grange designed London home for a while and was delighted to find even more on Studio Annetta. The home was originally published in the UK edition of […]

DVF at Home

05 . 11 . 10

Diane von Furstenberg just tweeted this morning that she is working hard on her upcoming home line. I can’t wait to see it! She has such great style and home around the world so I am wondering if it will reflect her nomadic lifestyle. This news also made me think of her home in Connecticut […]

I Heart Hamish!

05 . 10 . 10

I have been stalking the newsstand for weeks trying to find the latest issue of Australian Vogue Living and was excited to finally find it Saturday. I was even more excited to open up and find a profile of Hamish Bowles’ New York apartment! I think I might have actually squealed! It’s just as spectacular […]

Oscar at Home

05 . 03 . 10

The garden photo from my last post was from Annette and Oscar de la Renta’s garden in Connecticut. I thought maybe you would like to see some of the rest of the garden and house as well. It’s no wonder that Oscar is highly creative fashion designer with a place like this to recharge his […]

Project Peek

04 . 21 . 10

Everyone keeps clamoring for me to post more about my projects so I’m posting one sneak peek photo and it’s before incarnation. This living room is located in a three bedroom family apartment uptown. Please keep in mind that this is a during photo so it has not been completely styled because it’s not even […]

Even though the film won’t be released until May 28th, the Sex and the City 2 hoopla has already begun. While the fashions will probably steal all the scenes, I am interested in the sets, specifically Carrie and Big’s apartment. While there are some views in the trailer, I was able to find a few […]

After Almont Yard, I highly recommend a visit to La Cienega Boulevard. It’s chock full of great design shops including interior designer Peter Dunham‘s chic shop Hollywood at Home. It used to be in Almont Yard so make sure you know that it’s moved! When you walk in the door and turn to your left, […]
