Much of what I post on Habitually Chic can be described as “aspirational” design. I know this doesn’t always translate to real life which can be frustrating to those without unlimited budgets. When my very sweet public relations friend Current D’Ignazio asked me to help her pull together her first grown up apartment in New […]

I just returned from Nantucket and while I get resettled, I’m revisiting the New South Wales, Australia country home of interior designer Cameron Kimber. It’s one of my all time favorite homes that I could easily move into without changing a thing. I’ve found more photos on Instagram since it was first published in House […]

Paolo Moschino Chic

07 . 29 . 19

If I had to choose another interior designer to decorate for me, Paolo Moschino would be on the short list. He learned his trade under Nicky Haslam and even bought the Nicholas Haslam brand in 1995 which makes this a little confusing since Nicky Haslam is still decorating but under the NH Design moniker. But […]

What a week! There seemed to be something off about this week which culminated in my website going down last night. It was due to the fact that all the domain renewal notices went to my Spam folder instead of my Inbox. This has definitely been a lesson to make sure I have important dates […]

You can’t grow up near Pittsburgh without hearing about the Heinz family although I wasn’t that familiar with Drue Heinz. She was philanthropist and supporter of writers who was married to Henry J. ‘Jack’ Heinz II and died lasts year at the age of 103. Her collection of art and antiques from her Sutton Place […]

I’ve been following Hanna Seabrook of Gadabout Creative on Instagram for years where I would see snippets of her houses so I was happy to see one of them featured in Southern Living. Hanna and her family had moved to Louisville, Kentucky for her husband’s job for a few years and this is their home […]

After my recent travels and countless events in NYC, I’m looking forward to a quieter weekend but that doesn’t mean I’ll be staying home. There are many new openings worth checking out. I missed the press preview for the updated galleries at Sotheby’s last weekend because I was traveling so I walked over for a […]

I arrived at the top floor room of Young Huh at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House out of breath from running up five flights of stairs to see her. After exclaiming that I need to make a bigger commitment to cardio, she luckily assured me it happened to everyone. If the elevator isn’t working […]

Normally, I would put together a list of new and noteworthy art exhibitions, events, movies, and more on Friday but I wanted to give you an early heads up for some of them since they will end on Sunday. I will also be covering the Kips Bay Decorator Show House and traveling this weekend which […]

I find Pinterest incredibly frustrating lately. Just because I save one photo of a car doesn’t mean that I want to see a million photos of cars for the next week. I never even see pins from anyone I follow anymore so I have to go to their profile to see if they’ve posted anything.  […]

London based interior designer Virginia Howard has a project featured in the new April 2019 issue of House & Garden which led me to look for more of her work. I found her own London flat that also happened to be included in an old issue of House & Garden magazine. I’ve said it before […]

Spring is not only a good time to refresh your closet but also your walls. I’ve been rearranging my art and adding new pieces from Artfully Walls in new color schemes. Artfully Walls is a chic, contemporary, and affordable way to shop for art prints from a carefully curated group of artists from around the […]

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m loving lavender right now. It feels like the breath of fresh air we need to start the month of March. I realized that the pinker shade is more lilac than lavender so I’ve put together some of my favorites in both shades. If none of these strike your […]

I have a degree in art history with a concentration in 18th-century European paintings. I did study the Renaissance and even had to take my senior seminar on “Caravaggio and the Caravaggesque Artists” (I’m still made I didn’t get Gauguin like they did the previous year) but wouldn’t say it’s in my wheelhouse. I’m regretting […]

This week was not as busy as last week due to snow and the ending of fashion week but I still managed to miss a few things. I’m hoping to catch up on some of them over the long holiday weekend. If put a few new stores and events happening around New York, Los Angeles, […]

I feel like the unexpected warm weather has helped me get my mojo back. I’ve been busier than usual and taking in everything New York has to offer that I’m sharing with you. If you happen to go to the Ralph Lauren ladies mansion for the café this weekend, make sure you go upstairs to […]

It was raining when I visited the Kips Bay Show House in Palm Beach and Peter Dunham‘s room looked like the perfect place for rainy day activities. The Los Angeles based designer upholstered the walls in his Collage fabric from Peter Dunham Textiles, upholstered the sofa in his Souk fabric, and grounded the room with […]
