Great Scott

04 . 19 . 12

My appointment at the hair salon yesterday gave me time to read the new May issue of Vogue.  It features the Paris apartment of fashion designer and former model L’Wren Scott.  For those of you who don’t know, she has also been dating Sir Mick Jagger for the last ten years. That’s actually important information […]

Rooftop Retreat

08 . 31 . 11

There was so much to look at in the September issue of Vogue that many might have overlooked this stunning rooftop apartment.  It’s owned by Claude Wasserstein and was designed with help of interior designers Jacques Grange, Jeffrey Bilhuber, and Daniel Romualdez.  Usually, combinations like that could result in a mash up of styles and ideas but it […]

As most long time readers know, I’m obsessed with gardens.  Kind of funny considering how much I hate bugs and even more so spiders.  But as a city dweller, I long to be able to see greenery outside my window and to take a walk in nature whenever I desire.  I do try to take […]

Someone recently told me that they asked a child, “what’s black and white and read all over?” and they had no idea. I guess kids don’t read the newspaper these days. For some reason, I thought about that story when I saw this black and white papered entry. Probably because I also can’t answer the […]

When I posted the gorgeous home of Pamela Skaist-Levy, one of the founders of Juicy Couture, last year, a reader asked if there were any photos of her partner, Gela Nash-Taylor’s home. I couldn’t find any at the time which was probably because they were being saved for Vogue. The September 2009 issue has a […]

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I love the photography of François Halard so I was very excited when I opened my February 2008 issue of Vogue to find the most amazing article about his home in Arles, France and his loft in New York, with photography of course by Monsieur Halard. I’ve posted […]
