Tory Burch at Home

02 . 20 . 10

You didn’t think I’d write a post about Tory Burch‘s personal style without following it up with her chic apartment did you? The 9,000 square foot, not so humble, abode was created by combining apartments in The Pierre Hotel by architect and designer Daniel Romualdez. It was only featured in Vogue but recently, bits and […]

Erin in Paris

02 . 19 . 10

I’m beginning to think it’s a prerequisite for chic fashion designers to own fabulous flats in Paris. Or maybe living in the city of lights is what inspires them to create swoon worthy outfits every season. Erin Fetherston, like Marc Jacobs, has an apartment that I would love to live in. But I guess I’ll […]

Michael Kors at Home

02 . 18 . 10

A lot of creative types who work with color and pattern all day say that they like to come home to more neutral and clean environment so I wonder if that is the reason behind why both Donna Karan and Michael Kors live in black and white apartments. There is something kind of soothing about […]

Vintage MJ in Paris

02 . 17 . 10

Another review of the Fall 2010 collection by Marc Jacobs called it nostalgic. Which immediately made me nostalgic for Marc’s first Paris apartment that was also designed by Paul Fortune. Since I have no idea where my tear sheets for it have been filed, I was happy to find that Moodboard had scanned and posted […]

MJ in Paris

02 . 17 . 10

Marc Jacobs is getting rave reviews for his collection show Monday night. Some said it was serene while others accused it of being safe but sometimes you just want to look pretty and nice and not over the top, kind of like Marc’s Paris apartment. I’d be serene too if I lived in this fabulous […]

Wu Hoo!

02 . 17 . 10

Jason Wu has been the darling of the fashion world since Michelle Obama wore one of his gowns to the inaugural balls last January and rightly so since it’s wonderfully talented. That also makes him on of the favorites of Vogue so it’s not surprising that he recently had his new showroom designed by Anna […]

Donna Karan at Home

02 . 15 . 10

In honor of fashion week, I’m going to be posting some of my favorite fashionable interiors this week. Donna Karan is celebrating her 25th anniversary of her company and putting on her fashion show so I couldn’t think of a better fashion designer to start things off. Her 7,000 SF space on Central Park West […]

Pretty in Pink

02 . 12 . 10

There was a time when I couldn’t look at pink without picturing Pepto-Bismol or my childhood bedroom but the color is starting to grow on me. I love it when it’s used in a more sophisticated way in an elegant setting such as the dining room by Suzanne Kasler above. It looks less bubble gum […]

The mood board that I posted yesterday with the Rothko painting reminded me of Allison Sarofim’s amazing West Village townhouse. I just came across the article about it that I ripped out of the February 2004 issue of Vogue so it was perfect timing. I was under the impression that David Netto had designed the […]

Someone recently told me that they asked a child, “what’s black and white and read all over?” and they had no idea. I guess kids don’t read the newspaper these days. For some reason, I thought about that story when I saw this black and white papered entry. Probably because I also can’t answer the […]

I was honored to once again be asked by The Inside Source to give my advice on where to splurge and where to save when decorating. This topic was right up my alley since I often mix expensive pieces with eBay and flea market finds in my work. My choices also illustrate my other love […]

One of things that makes me happy are all the wonderful comments and emails that I receive from my readers everyday. A lovely note came on December 31st from one of my readers in France who said, “I love the way you write about other designers without any jealousy, au contraire, you are always so […]

One of my absolute favorite rooms at the Traditional Home Hampton Designer Showhouse last summer was the masculine bedroom suite designed by Bradley Thiergartner Interiors that I never actually posted! Sometimes as a blogger you get sidetracked or another event happens soon after one you are covering or you have paying clients that require your […]

Big Window Challenge

01 . 22 . 10

My friends and I often joke about different stores in New York where we would love to live. Bloomingdale’s is usually not on that list but that was before Eddie Ross got his hands on their windows! In case you haven’t heard, Bloomingdale’s is sponsoring a Big Window Challenge and Eddie has been tapped to […]

Hamptons Hideaway

01 . 21 . 10

A Fashionable Life is my favorite feature in Harper’s Bazaar but since they are a fashion magazine and not a shelter magazine, the actual home photos tend to be a little on the small side. They also don’t publish all the rooms or show enough details to satisfy my curiosity. One home that I hope […]

Ciao Bella!

01 . 20 . 10

One of my readers recently asked me for more information about the chair shown in designer Veere Grenney’s bedroom and Veere’s office was kind enough to share the source. I was afraid they were going to tell me that it was vintage or only available in the UK but it turns out the Bella Chair […]

The Show Must Go On

01 . 17 . 10

I wasn’t sure if I should be posting about the Queen of Clothes or the Golden Globes right after posting about a benefit for Haiti but sometimes we need a little diversion. It doesn’t mean we don’t still care. And as the saying goes, the show must go on. I can’t think of a better […]
