I’m trying to get better at reading each night instead of getting sucked into social media. This includes the stacks of magazines piling up in addition to all the new books I just bought. My favorite feature in one of the November magazines is this apartment by architect Carlos Aparicio in Buenos Aires in Elle […]

Jayson Home, the beloved Chicago store, has just opened in downtown New York. It is so exciting to have their mix of new and vintage finds in the City that Never Sleeps. You can now find anything you need for your own apartment, a client project, or the perfect gift at their new location. You […]

Felt Bodega

06 . 10 . 17

New York has a bodega, or independently run convenience store, every few blocks. They are the backbone of the city but none is as awe inspiring as the felt bodega art installation titled 8 Till Late by artist Lucy Sparrow at the The Standard High Line. Over 9,000 different grocery items from toilet paper to […]

I was first introduced to the work of interior designer Robert Stilin in the 2009 Hamptons Designer Show House. So it was fun to reconnect many years later in his room at the 2017 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. For the house, he created a “luxuriously comfortable living space inspired by contemporary European salons.” He […]

More is More

The incessant rain lately has been great for spring cleaning and organizing. As I was throwing out magazines, I came across the home of retired Hyatt executive John Mayberry in San Francisco in House Beautiful. He downsized from a 4,000 square-foot house in Georgia to this 900 square-foot rental apartment and still managed to hang his entire art […]

Birthday Blooms

04 . 19 . 17

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. It was my birthday and I was dealing with a cold so I ended up taking the day off. Other than being sick, it was a great day filled with flowers, a facial, and great friends. I’ll be back later with a regular post. The secret of staying […]

April showers bring May flowers but they also offer up a great time to head indoors. There are a lot of great museum exhibitions on view this spring and not just in New York. I am planning a couple road trips to see some of them. Here’s where you should head inside the next time it rains. Seurat’s […]

Kate Schelter and I have many friends in common but I didn’t meet the artist and “creative girl” until she painted the menus for my EBTH dinner party which she also attended last fall. In honor of her upcoming book Classic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear It Out, One Kings Lane is looking into […]

One of the most anticipated events every January is the Winter Antiques Show which benefits the East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx with programs that “focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity.” The mix of art, antiques, objects, and jewelry never […]

Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean there aren’t still fun things to do and see. The cold weather is a good time to head out for some art and culture or stay home and watch a new program. Here are a few suggestions to get you excited about January. I stopped by The Frick Collection before […]

Nocturnal Animals

12 . 28 . 16

I saw Tom Ford’s recently released film Nocturnal Animals on Christmas Day. A holiday movie it is not but I’m glad I saw it for the cinematography and sets. The story is based on the book Tony and Susan and follows art gallery owner Susan Morrow, played by Amy Adams, who receives a book proof from her ex-husband […]

Ace of Spades

12 . 04 . 16

As many times as I’ve seen the uptown apartment of Kate and Andy Spade, I never tire of seeing it. While someone in the design world recently announced that gallery walls of art are out style, they are never passé for those who actually have a large collection of art and only so many walls […]

Chateau de Castille

10 . 24 . 16

I came across Chateau de Castille on the French AD site last week. Not only is the chateau beautiful and include wall frescoes by Picasso but it’s for sale by Sotheby’s International Realty. Considering how much Picasso art work sells for at auction, it seems like a bargain at $9.66 Million. If any of you buy […]

There are so many great Friends & Family fashion sales going on right now but not many for the home. If you’re looking for a little fall refresh for your home, I highly suggest you check out Serena & Lily. They are offering a 20% Friends & Family discount through 11:59pm on Monday, October 24, 2016 […]

California Cool

09 . 14 . 16

After years of bi-coastal living, Chance designer Julia Leach finally decided to give up her New York apartment and move to Venice, California. Any New Yorker who tells you they don’t think about moving somewhere else is totally lying. We all think about it, especially when it involves sunshine and fresh air. Julia didn’t waste […]

I wasn’t sure what to expect when the Metropolitan Museum of Art decided to rent out the old Whitney Museum on Madison Avenue to create the Met Breuer, new space dedicated to modern and contemporary art. Their first exhibition Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible is one of the most interesting and original shows I’ve seen in a […]

Nice was the subject of paintings for many famous artists including Raoul Dufy and Henri Matisse. I’m sure they would be just heartbroken as the rest of us at the recent attack on people just trying to enjoy a Bastille Day evening of fireworks. Here are a few Matisse paintings of Nice as a tribute to the city. […]
