There is something about Easter that always makes me think of pastel colors. So in honor of Easter and spring, I’ve assembled some of my favorite candy colored rooms. Enjoy!

The Art of Spring

03 . 06 . 10

Now that the weather is starting to warm up and there is a touch of spring in the air, it’s time to lighten up my nail polish color. My favorite light shade is Potato Fields by Essie but I am loving the new Essie Art of Spring collection. The fun shades are named after artists […]

La Plage

All I can think about is spring and warmer weather so I was very excited when I walked onto the fourth floor at the Ralph Lauren Mansion Saturday and saw a sea of blue and white. Actually, it looked they skipped spring and went straight to summer on the French Riviera! The collection is called […]

A Chat with Peter Som

09 . 22 . 09

A few weeks ago, I saw fashion designer Peter Som entering the D&D Building as I was leaving. Of course my curiosity was piqued. What was he doing there? Was he looking for inspiration for his upcoming fashion show? Was he redecorating his apartment? Luckily, my upholsterer, Matthew Haly, also happens to be Peter’s upholsterer […]

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Kips Bay Decorator Show House coverage to thank Mother Nature for hearing our pleas and warming up the New York weather! The sun is shining! The birds are chirping! The tulips on Park Avenue are blooming! I couldn’t have asked for a better birthday present! Happy Spring!

Spring Fever

04 . 14 . 09

The temperatures may have made it feel like winter on Easter Sunday but at least the park looked like spring! The trees and flowers are blooming all over the city and once it finally warms up, every New Yorker is going to have a serious case of spring fever! We’re getting closer! Photos by moi

After our visit with Mr. Hadley on Tuesday, Grant and I did a little shopping, mostly window shopping, on Madison Avenue. Of course, that was after fueling up at JG Melon. After that, our first priority was the Ralph Lauren Mansion. There is chic and then there is Ralph Lauren Chic. The home floor was […]

Happy Spring!

03 . 20 . 09

Even though it’s the first day of spring, winter had other ideas as we awoke to find snow in New York. Hopefully, it’s the last snow of the season! I think I’ve mentioned before that I’ve always loved spring since my birthday is in April. It’s such a happy and optimistic time of the year […]

New York in Bloom!

04 . 13 . 08

As the weather vacillates between warm and cold in New York, at least the trees continue to announce the impending arrival of spring.

Happy Spring!

Daffodilsby William Wordsworth I wandered lonely as a cloud, That floats on high o’er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They […]

Spring Fling

03 . 12 . 08

It’s still chilly in New York but it’s been sunny the last few days so there is a sense of excitement in the air that Spring is just around the corner. I love Autumn but there is something about Spring that makes it my favorite season. Maybe it’s because my birthday is in April or […]
