I’m busy working today so I decided to post a chic repeat.  I love this space so much that I wanted to post it again anyway. As I continue decorating my own apartment it’s been very inspiring.  It was featured in Canadian House & Home in December 2008 and still looks just as good today.  […]

Chic Revisted

11 . 27 . 11

I was thinking about reposting Aerin Lauder’s beautiful holiday decorated East Hampton home from the old House & Garden when I discovered new photos on Vogue.com.  It’s also been seen in Elle Decor but with any family house it has evolved and changed over the years.  It looks like the living room has been repainted […]

Safe Travels!

We’re taking off for the holidays but don’t despair, we have uploaded lots of goodies for you while we are away.  Hope you and your presents make it home safely too!  Merry Christmas!

Luckily, I managed to get out and take some photos of the wonderful holiday decorations on the Upper East Side before I became an incubus of viral plague.  New Yorkers really know how to go all out.  Enjoy!  Photos by Heather Clawson for Habitually Chic

I posted these photos two years ago in Silver and Sage but I love them so much that I couldn’t help reposting them.  The house located in New Canaan, Connecticut was built in 1885 and belongs to designer Michelle Morgan Harrison.  It was originally featured in Connecticut Cottages & Gardens and makes me wish I had a […]

I always buy cards from R. Nichols since they perfectly reflect my life in New York especially at the holidays.  This Christmas Taxi card is the one I sent out this year and for those of you whose address I do not know, please accept this virtual holiday greeting.  I hope you and your yours […]

Country Christmas

12 . 12 . 10

I posted a few photos from Tricia Foley’s house in my Merry Mantels post and just found out she has her own blog, In the Country.  The rest of the entire house was featured in Country Home and is a great example of decorating for the holidays with a lighter touch.  I think her Christmas […]

If you don’t have a mantel or room for a tree, there are a lot of other creative ways you can decorate your home for the holidays.  I love the wreaths that are hung inside the house but my favorite idea are the festive touches placed in the china cabinets.   Hanging garland on mirrors and over doorways are also a […]

Merry Mantels

I really wish my apartment had a fireplace mantel so I could decorate it for Christmas.  For those of you who do, here are some inspiring images! I’m especially in love with the one from Homes & Gardens above!  Happy Holidays! Southern Accents Southern Accents Southern Accents Elle Decor Country Living Canadian House & Home […]

Deck the Doors

I bought a cute little wreath for my door this weekend but it can’t compare to some of these outdoor decorations.  Have you started to decorate yet?  If not, here’s a little inspiration.  Happy Holidays! unknown Canadian House & Home Elle Decor Martha Stewart Canadian House & Home Martha Stewart Canadian House & Home Country […]

When I was looking for examples of holiday decorating last week, I came across this elegant example.  The home is owned by a Canadian lawyer, Luce Gayrard, who also has a penchant for decorating.  It is located outside Montreal and was featured in the November 2008 issue of Canadian House & Home. I never met a French piece […]

I can’t wait to get home for holidays and see our family Christmas tree this year! My father is the master tree decorator and always out does himself. We have a huge collection of vintage ornaments that will someday be mine (minus those lost in the cat vs. tree incident of 1983). But I don’t […]

Alaina of Live Creating Yourself was sweet enough to ask me to participate in her Kindred Spirtits Countdown to Christmas and today you can read my answers to her fun questions! You can also find out who owns that fancy white Christmas tree below! Merry Christmas!

Tabletop Tannenbaums

12 . 22 . 09

I always look at decorating for the holidays from the point of view of someone who doesn’t live in an home that allows for a full size Christmas tree. So I’ve been collecting inspiring images of tabletop tannenbaums that are perfect for smaller spaces. Martha Stewart (above) is full of ideas for these types of […]

I came across an entertaining feature of Carolyne Roehm holiday tabletop designs in an old issue of House Beautiful that made me interested in seeing more. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many images of her work online so I am hoping that her next book will be entirely devoted to Christmas decorating and entertaining. I know […]

I had a fabulous lunch at Cafe Cluny yesterday with interior designer Courtney Giles and gallery owner Emily Amy who are in town from Atlanta for a few days of shopping. Afterward, I took a walk around the West Village to check out the holiday decorations. The neighborhood is full of beautiful brownstones and their […]
