I wanted to begin my gift guides this year with some of my favorite things. (Yes, like Oprah but not as extensive.) These gift ideas could be for host/hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or items for anyone on your list, even yourself. There is no store as overwhelming in a good way like Fortnum & Mason […]

There are exciting holiday pop up shops popping up all over right now. If you happen to be in Ann Arbor, Michigan before Christmas, definitely stop by The Maryn Holiday Pop Up Shop. My friend Michelle Adams has carefully curated everything you will want to give and receive this year from cozy blankets and books […]

Veranda is one of the only magazines, if not the only one, to feature homes decorated for Christmas each year. I love seeing all the beautiful holiday decor in elegant interiors especially this one by Alidad in London. Of course, it helps to have rich red rooms as a backdrop but amaryllis and fruits would look […]

I met my friend David Lawrence after posting a house he designed in the Hamptons on the blog in 2008. The blue and white home was featured on the cover and inside House Beautiful. We worked for the same designer but not at the same time and shared a love of beautiful things so of […]

The first time I met Starrett Ringbom was when she was working in public relations for Jonathan Adler. She was wearing a high waisted pair of vintage leather pants that belonged to her mother on a pouring down rainy day. I was dressed for the weather and did not look as chic. The first time I […]

Andrea Stanford, Design and Interiors Editor of C Magazine, is one of the chicest women I know. She’s also one of the happiest. I always joke it’s because she lives in sunny Los Angeles. But just because she lives in a warm climate doesn’t mean she doesn’t go all out for the holidays. Andrea told […]

I apologize for the radio silence on the blog this weekend. It was much harder to work from Mexico than I had anticipated. Two back to back trips were also a bit exhausting. But now that I am back for good, I am ready to start decorating for Christmas and I’m using Suzanne Rheinstein’s house […]

Just a quick note to let you know that I’m visiting Charleston this weekend. My friend and I walked over seven miles yesterday exploring the city and have loved every minute so far. I’m also really enjoying the Planter’s Inn where I am staying. The Ultimate Coconut Cake from their restaurant, The Peninsula Grill, really […]

I need to get a Christmas wreath this week but I have to wait on other decorations because I have back to back trips coming up and don’t want everything to die. If you need a little inspiration for your holiday decorations, this Montana mountain house that Ken Fulk designed that was featured in the […]

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. That also means that Christmas and Hanukkah are just around the corner. To help give you a head start on your decorating, Horchow is having a Holiday Decorating Sale with up to 40% off seasonal decor. While the majority of the items are for Christmas, they […]

Ultimate Dream Kitchen

12 . 23 . 15

My kitchen obsession continues but I think I may have found the ultimate dream kitchen. The high-glosss black and brass accented Brooklyn brownstone kitchen just featured in Lonny was designed by David Nastasi and Kate Vail for a client.  Since space is at a premium in New York, I love that they took the cabinets all the […]

Let It Snow

12 . 21 . 15

The first day of winter is Tuesday but you would never know it on the East Coast.  The temperature will be in the 70’s in New York on Christmas Eve. That’s why I’m living vicariously through those experiencing snow on Instagram.  Interior designer Andrew Brown was recently in snowy Colorado and his photos could not […]

Elf on a Shelf

12 . 17 . 15

I have no idea where Elf on a Shelf originated but no one is more creative with their elves than actress Busy Phillips. Every Christmas, I look forward to following her adorable elves’ adventures Instagram. She even makes little outfits for them. Now that’s a great mom.

Christmas in New York

12 . 13 . 15

The recent heat wave has made walking around New York much more enjoyable than usual this December. It has also made photographing the holiday decor a lot easier without frozen fingers. I had the pleasure of having the company of Tommy Smythe on Saturday to instagram all the wonderful decorations in the West Village. Tommy even moved […]

This weekend I bought a new wreath, two Amaryllis, and a small Christmas tree. I look forward to puling out all my vintage ornaments and decorations next. But I have a long way to go though to live up to the classically elegant holiday decorations of interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein recently featured on One Kings […]

I’ve honestly been a bit overwhelmed by the amount of holiday shopping emails that have clogged my inbox the last few days. That’s why I’m doing all my gift shopping online at Nordstrom. You can find everything you need for your entire family in one place with free shipping and returns. You can even buy online […]
