French Country Chic

11 . 12 . 15

Not everyone was a fan of Luis Laplace‘s Paris home yesterday but I have a feeling everyone will love weekend home in Southern France that he shares with his partner in life and business, Christophe Comoy. It’s also no wonder that the half-French Chloe Malle was the one to write the story for Vogue where […]

At Home in the Garden

11 . 09 . 15

I’ve always admired Carolyne Roehm‘s life and style but I admire it even more after reading her recently One Kings Lane profile. While her life may seem perfect, she’s endured a very public divorce and had her beloved house Weatherstone burn to the ground after an electrical fire. Both have risen like a Phoenix out […]

Europe has already gone back to work and school but we have one last long summer weekend to relax before it’s back to our reality. I hope your summer weekend home is as lovely as this one on Long Island designed by Carrier & Company. I don’t think there is one thing I would change about the […]

When I was living in Paris, I made it a point to visit as many museums and sights as possible. When I returned to New York, I realized that there were a lot of places I still haven’t been to here even though I’ve lived in the city for 14 years. I’ve been making it […]

At Home in the Garden

08 . 06 . 15

At the photo shoot yesterday, I was discussing that I would like to take a flower arranging class.  Another person who could give great lessons is Carolyne Roehm. I love checking out her website to see the gorgeous photos of her gardens, flowers, and tabletops.  Everything she touches is chic and gorgeous.  So I’m especially […]

Sporty Spice

07 . 23 . 15

The new August 2015 issue of Vogue has a fun feature on Tory Burch and her new Sport collection. It was shot by Bruce Weber at her Southampton home and includes her three sons with former husband Chris Burch, as well as her three step-daughters, two of which, Pookie and Louisa Burch, are the founders […]

It’s a gorgeous non-humid day in New York and I’m headed to the flower district to buy a tree and a few other things for a photo shoot.  I hope someday to be buying plants and flowers for an outdoor space but until then, I’m going to enjoy the gorgeous garden of Axel Vervoordt in Belgium. The […]

Singing sensation and sometimes wild child Lily Allen seems to have settled down now that she’s married with two children.  She and her family have moved to the charming Cotswolds area about two hours from London.  Vogue featured the home in their September 2014 issue but I’ve also found a few more photos of the […]

Federico the Great

08 . 25 . 14

I always think about trying garden design someday but then I remember I don’t like bugs and come to my senses. Apparently Federico Forquet didn’t have that problem.  The fashion designer who started his career with Balenciaga later turned his attention to designing gardens and interiors after working on his own home in Italy. T Magazine […]

There have been a lot of articles written about philanthropist, art collector, and avid gardener Bunny Mellon since she passed away this spring at the age of 103. What makes the story The Eloquence of Silence in T magazine today so different is that it was written and photographed by interior designer Charlotte Moss who […]

June

There is no price set on the lavish summer,And June may be had by the poorest comer. – James Russell Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal Photo of Hotel de Sully by moi. 

I can’t believe I’ve been in Paris for one week now.  It is definitely starting to feel like home and I’m looking forward to exploring every nook and cranny in the months to come. I know many of you are getting ready for the long holiday weekend in the US.  France has a long weekend […]

Blue and White Delight

04 . 28 . 14

When I went on the Carrier and Company website on Friday to link to their site, I noticed a beautiful beach house project in the Hamptons. It made me a little wistful about not being here to go out East this summer.  I’m sure that will pass the minute I land in Paris but I […]

You didn’t think I could post about Timothy Corrigan‘s beautiful Chateau du Grand-Lucé without including the gardens did you?  Just looking at these photos is relaxing which is helpful since I’m off to an appointment with my accountant today. Enjoy! Photos from Veranda and AD.

I usually like to wait until after Thanksgiving to start posting about Christmas but since it’s starting to look pretty festive around town, I figured what the heck.  Last week, Bunny Williams invited me to Treillage for lunch where the entire place was already decked out for the holidays.  I found out that I had […]

Bon Weekend

08 . 31 . 13

As I mentioned, I have spent most of the week with Alice Ryan and her five year old son and 16 month old daughter. It was a great introduction to the North Fork and a crash course in child rearing.  I have a new found appreciation for all parents and especially those who have boys […]

While walking in Sag Harbor last Sunday, I ran into interior designer Kristen McGinnis, who told me that I had to stop into Bloom (no website).  I’ve been to Sag Harbor many times but have never been to Bloom which I realize now was a huge shame.  Not only does it have the chicest exterior […]
