I feel like it’s interior designer Michael S. Smith‘s world and we’re just living in it this month. A stunning apartment he designed with architect Oscar Shamamian of Ferguson & Shamamian in a Rosario Candela designed building on Park Avenue is featured on the cover and inside the new October 2018 issue of Architectural Digest. […]

After another heatwave in New York this week, I’m officially ready for fall. Although it looks like the temperatures will abate this weekend, it will also be rainy. Perfect time to watch something new on Netflix or take in a museum. Here are some options to get you through your weekend. First up, is The […]

This very chic art collector’s apartment in Pimlico was featured in the December 2016 issue of House & Garden but I didn’t see it until this week. Better late than never because I love the mix of important furniture pieces and and art in a more masculine setting for a French private equity firm partner. […]

I had never heard of interior designer Francois de Marigny before coming across this art filled duplex he designed for a divorced and his children in Paris on ArchitecturalDigest.com but now I want to see more. The home in Napoleon III building with a private garden hadn’t been touched in 50 years but luckily all of […]

I can’t think of a better time to post about beach themed art than the day I leave for Nantucket. If you’re looking to decorate your summer rental, make a change, or help a graduate with their new apartment, Society6 and Saatchi Art have you covered. Society6 offers affordable art prints framed and unframed, as well […]

Legendary costume jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane passed away almost a year ago and now art, antiques, and objects collected over his lifetime are up for auction at Christie’s Interiors: New York Visions sale on June 6, 2018. Also included in the sale are The Collection of Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd, and Robert Couturier: Elements […]

I had a hard time trying to decide what to name this post because it’s actually about a few different but related things. First, Delphine and Reed Krakoff have decided to part with some of their collection of art and furniture at Sotheby’s 23 May 2018 in the sale A Collection That We Dreamt Of: Art and […]

An Art Filled Weekend

05 . 05 . 18

If you are in New York this weekend, you will definitely not lack for things to do, especially if you like art. There is so much going on that I’m a little exhausted already but I still have two more exhibitions to see. Hope you can make it one or all but definitely wear comfortable […]

One of the driving principles of who I post on Habitually Chic is that the person must be nice. And not just nice to me. One person who is niceness personified is interior designer Michael Herold who designed by foyer at the 2018 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. I arrived later than expected to the […]

It was at the 2015 Kips Bay Decorator Show House that I first met interior designer Philip Mitchell and his partner Mark Narsansky when I fell in love with Philip’s Stairway to Heaven. We’ve become such dear friends that we were joking earlier this week that it feels like we’ve known each other forever and […]

One Apartment Two Ways

Fashion designer Misha Nonoo’s duplex apartment was in great shape when she and her former husband bought it from interior designer Nate Berkus in 2013. After her divorce, she pared things down with help from Andre Mellone while keeping many of Nate’s design elements. Her home is featured in the new May 2018 issue of […]

The Peggy and David Rockefeller Collection coming up for auction at Christie’s in May is touted as “the most anticipated art world event of the spring season” and they aren’t exaggerating. The sale filled with artwork by Claude Monet, Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin, and Pablo Picasso among others, as well as beautiful antiques and objects […]

Not all museum exhibitions have to be ground breaking. Some can just be beautiful and Public Parks, Private Gardens: Paris to Provence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art is beyond beautiful. The show “explores horticultural developments that reshaped the landscape of France and grounded innovative movements both artistic and green.” It features over 150 works […]

A March Glee

03 . 17 . 18

Oh, Spring is surely coming, Her couriers fill the air; Each morn are new arrivals, Each night her ways prepare; I scent her fragrant garments, Her foot is on the stair. – John Burroughs, “A March Glee” Photo by me: Henri Matisse, Olive Trees at Collioure, 1906. at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Winter Antiques Show opened in New York last week and I took a tour on Thursday. I fell in love with many paintings and objects and it’s been fun to see what everyone else has been posting on Instagram. As I’ve mentioned over the years, the Winter Antiques Show is a great place to […]

I was talking to someone the other day about the film Phantom Thread. She loved it and I did not. I said that I didn’t think the costumes or sets were as inspiring or interesting as a Tom Ford film. Nocturnal Animals is so much more beautiful but it was hard to watch in some […]
