Country Chic

09 . 25 . 10

It’s going to be over 80 degrees today in New York today and that makes it a great weekend to getaway.  A perfect place to do so would be the country house in Connecticut owned by designers Richard Lambertson and John Truex.  The showhouse room in my last post reflected more of their city style while […]

Thank You Elle Decor!

09 . 14 . 10

The October 2010 issue of Elle Decor is one of their best ever and I’m not just saying that because I’m in it! I want to thank Elle Decor for including my quote about luxury at home in the issue. I am especially humbled to be included with Allegra Hicks, Schuyler Samperton, China Chow, Ralph Rucci, […]

If you have an extra $2,200,000 lying around and are in the market for a new apartment, you may want to check out Gilles Mendel’s chic duplex.  The Pre-War two bedroom space is located on the Upper East Side near all the fabulous stores and luckily comes with walk in closets to store your purchases.  […]

I want to go to there.

06 . 24 . 10

I was lucky enough to find a copy of the new July/August issue of Elle Decor at my local newsstand this weekend and boy is it a good one. As soon as I saw the home of John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross, all I could think of were the immortal words of Liz Lemon, “I […]

If you are a regular reader, then you know how much I love it when fashion and design collide and I can’t think of a more perfect marriage than Oscar de la Renta and Lee Jofa. I had the pleasure of attending the Elle Decor sponsored launch party last evening at the Oscar de la […]

Since I’ve already written about Carrie and Big’s apartment in the new Sex and the City movie, I thought it would be fun to take a look inside the home of the original Carrie Bradshaw, Candace Bushnell. ELLE DECOR just posted these photos and I’m so happy! This is one of my all time favorite […]

Weekend Reading

05 . 14 . 10

Someone recently asked me why I don’t subscribe to magazines. My answer is that there is nothing worse than seeing a magazine on the newsstand before your subscription copy has arrived. That’s why I have two copies of every Domino ever published. And before anyone asks, no you can’t have any of them. The point […]

We are having the most glorious weather today and it makes me want to take off for the Hamptons. But since I have too many projects, appointments, parties, and work, I will have to make due with drooling over Christina and Chris Cuomo’s humble abode that was decorated by designer Emma Jane Pilkington. It was […]

Bon Weekend!

04 . 09 . 10

I’m getting my hair done this weekend and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the May 2010 issue of ELLE DECOR will be out on the newsstands in New York. I’d like to have something chic to read and this looks like a great issue. Ellen Pompeo and her home that was designed by Martyn […]

More Happiness!

01 . 28 . 10

One of my readers mentioned magazines as something that makes them happy and I have to agree! Right now, the March 2010 cover of ELLE DECOR is making me very happy! Those blue walls are gorgeous and I can’t wait to get the issue see the rest! UPDATE: I was overjoyed with excitement when I […]

Big Window Challenge

01 . 22 . 10

My friends and I often joke about different stores in New York where we would love to live. Bloomingdale’s is usually not on that list but that was before Eddie Ross got his hands on their windows! In case you haven’t heard, Bloomingdale’s is sponsoring a Big Window Challenge and Eddie has been tapped to […]

Design Inspiration

12 . 07 . 09

I had no idea that my Blue Christmas post would lead to a little chat with Dick Bories and James Shearron of Bories and Shearron, the architecture firm behind the renovation of the Fifth Avenue apartment that Miles Redd decorated. The entire apartment is featured in the December 2009 issue of Elle Decor but it […]

It was the photos of the blue entry decorated for Christmas in the December 2009 issue of Elle Decor that had me thinking back to Aerin Lauder’s blue Christmas. I love blue and white porcelain any time of year but I think it looks especially festive at the holidays. Miles Redd, who can do not […]

Snap to Grid

11 . 25 . 09

When a group of artwork is of different sizes and shapes, they always look great hung gallery style. When artwork is the same size or a part of a series, there is nothing that makes a bigger impact than hanging them all together in a grid. They sometimes end up creating a larger work of […]

Cordelia Times Deux

11 . 02 . 09

When I first saw Cordelia de Castellane in her Paris apartment in the April 2009 issue of Elle Decor, I thought she looked familiar. She was featured in her old apartment in the March 2007 issue of House & Garden magazine. I remembered her because I posted some of the photos from that feature shortly […]

Women in Design

10 . 27 . 09

I had the pleasure of attending Elle Decor‘s annual salute to Women in Design and thought I would share a few of the highlights with you. After Charlotte Moss was presented with the Vision Award from Margaret Russell they joined interior designers Michelle Nussbaumer, Kelly Wearstler and Holly Hunt for a panel discussion. A few […]

I’m off to the High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina! While I’m in High Point, I’ll be running around to all the showrooms and events. Some of the highlights include the Hickory Chair dinner with Suzanne Kasler, Thomas O’Brien and Alexa Hampton, and the ELLE DECOR party. I was also invited to a fabulous […]
