One of the most exciting collaborations of fashion and design is launching for VIP customers early and then to the general public on Tuesday, May 11th. Schumacher fabrics are gracing five classic shoe styles from Margaux. I was lucky to be sent the Ballet Mule and I just ordered the the Demi Ballet Flat. They […]

In addition to more flat lay outfits and color compilation posts, I’ve also had a request to bring back more bon weekend compilation posts. These are posts that incorporate disparate recommendations and events that don’t warrant a full blog post. I’m not sure I’ll do them every week but instead when I have a few […]

Chic in Paris: Tensira

03 . 08 . 15

Before we came to Paris, Michelle and I each made a list of the places we definitely wanted to visit on this trip.  Since she is currently decorating her house, at the top of her list was the fabric showroom Tensira.  The founders of Tensira, Tuulia Makinen and Hamidou Diallo met in school in Finland, fell in […]

Hable at Hickory Chair

04 . 30 . 12

The best part of High Point is getting to meet many of the designers in person.  Sisters Susan Hable Smith and Katherine Hable Sweeney of Hable Construction have collaborated on a fabric line for Hickory Chair and created a little artist’s studio in the showroom. Not only do I love their fabric designers but their […]

I had a very busy day yesterday which also included a meeting at the D&D Building.  While I was there, I decided to see if the Oscar de la Renta room was finished at the Lee Jofa showroom.  Every season Lee Jofa installs a fabulous room devoted to one of their fabric designers.  I wasn’t sure […]

Thom Filicia Fabrics

06 . 21 . 10

I told you that there are a lot of exciting things going on this summer and this time it’s Thom Filicia‘s new fabric line for Kravet. I had the pleasure of attending the press preview last month and Thom was kind enough to pose with his fabulous new fabrics! He’s so funny! The first thing […]

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 […]

I had a lot of readers ask me where to find the chairs in my last post. They were actually already owned by my client and are from Lee Industries. The chairs are a nice small size for New York apartments. You can see from the before photo below what a difference new upholstery and […]

A Single Headboard

04 . 12 . 10

I’ve been too busy decorating for others lately to spend any time on my own apartment but when a certain magazine asked to see photos of it, I thought that maybe I should finish all those nagging projects. One of which is a headboard. If you live in an apartment in New York, then you […]

The first stop for our day of design in LA was the chic showroom of Kathryn Ireland where textile designer Brian Ferrick of Ferrick Mason joined us. It was a kaleidoscope of colorful prints and patterns. It seemed like everyone in LA was on the move and Kathryn was no exception. She recently opened this […]

Quirky Quadrille!

08 . 24 . 09

When I was searching for fabrics for my current big project, one of showrooms I visited was Quadrille. Turns out nothing was right for that particular apartment but now I can spot one of their fabrics a mile away! The showroom includes collections by Quadrille, Alan Campbell, China Seas, and Home Couture but are often […]

New Wave

01 . 17 . 09

A reader asked the name of the fabric that Katie Ridder used on the back of the chairs above. It’s called New Wave by Old World Weavers and the color is Capri (AB 0003 6512). It’s available from Stark in New York but was out of stock today when I stopped by with my friend […]
