Our blizzard turned out to be a bust but it’s still snowy and cold. It’s definitely a good time to think about another warm weather getaway like Harbour Island in the Bahamas.  Vogue features the Hibiscus Hill home and rental properties of India Hicks and David Flint Wood in the new February 2015 issue and […]

Charmed by Caneel

01 . 12 . 15

Travel is as much abut the places you go as the people you travel with and that was never more true than on my press trip to Caneel Bay on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  The weather was beautiful and warm which was a great reprieve from winter in New York and the other […]

Out of Office

01 . 08 . 15

This is the view I woke up to this morning at Caneel Bay.  It’s perfection as is the weather.  While it feels like -8 with the wind chill in New York, we will have 80+ degree temperatures today.  Ahhh. I’m taking a little break to enjoy myself but will definitely have longer posts up soon. […]

I’m off to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands today for a few days of fun in the sun at Caneel Bay. I’m leaving just in time to miss another arctic blast headed for New York and can’t wait to sit on the beach. India Hicks is based in the Bahamas, not where I’m […]

Miami Nice

12 . 07 . 14

I’m back from Art Basel but battling a nasty cold.  Makes me wish I had stayed in sunny and warm Miami.  While I rest up and recover, I’m leaving you with a few pics of my trip. But I will have another lovely gift guide for you on Monday morning.

Many people will be heading to the Hamptons this weekend to spend the last unofficial weekend of summer at the beach.  The house in Something’s Gotta Give inspired the decor of many beach homes so I thought you would be interested to know that according to Curbed, the Shingle Style house that was used for the exterior shots has […]

My trip to Paradise

01 . 21 . 14

First, I want to thank everyone who send kind emails and left comments regarding my beauty post.  I’m still trying to get through all the emails so if it takes me a few days to reply, please forgive me.  I think most of you completely understood why I wrote that post but a few of […]

The wifi situation has been more spotty than anticipated in the Dominican Republic so I apologize for a lack of posts.  But I have to admit that it’s been nice to be on a real holiday and doing no work other than making everyone back in cold New York jealous via Instagram. Except for a […]

It’s been exciting to see the progress of Serena & Lily from when I was first introduced to them in 2010.  It was even more inspiring to hear founders Lily Kanter and Serena Dugan talk about the really early days when they just made crib bedding while standing in their first retail store in the […]

Anchors Away

Just a little reminder while I’m away to enjoy summer’s fleeting days.

Happy Summer!

Summer is starting with a bang in New York.  We are scheduled for three days of 90+ degree temperatures.  Makes we wish I was anyplace but the city.  Hope you have a great one where ever you are today!  “In summer, the song sings itself.”  – William Carlos Williams  Elle Decor Paul Newman  via East […]

Bon Weekend!

06 . 15 . 12

I wish I was at the beach eating ice cream today.  Instead I’m working on final edits for the book which goes to print on Monday.  (Hooray!) But since the sun is finally out, I might sneak over to the park this afternoon.  I’ll be back tomorrow with some fun posts for Father’s Day.  Until […]

I’ve seen the photo of The Divers above dozens of times yet didn’t realize the photographer was George Hoyningen-Huene until recently.  He was born in Russia in 1900 and during the Russian Revolution fled to London and later Paris.  He worked as a photographer and eventually became chief of photography at French Vogue.  In 1931, he […]

On the charter boat from St. Maarten to Anguilla, one of the crew members told me that a lot of people who visit Anguilla end up extending their trip.  After experiencing the island and the Viceroy Beach Resort, I can see why.  None of us wanted to leave. The words most often used to describe […]

Happy Summer!

Although the calendar doesn’t mark the beginning of summer until June 21st, Memorial Day always announces the unofficial start of summer. While it may be too cold for a dip in the ocean, there is the anticipation of lazy days spent baking in the sun, boating on the waves and shopping in quaint little villages. […]
