I hate to beat a dead horse but I’m not sure how much of this winter I can take. Spring is so close yet it feels so far away.  So please indulge me while I gaze longingly at these photos of green spaces and pretty flowers.  Winds of March, we welcome you,  There is work […]

Long time readers will remember my aversion to pink.  Well, this awful winter has left even me longing for the cheerful affect of a little color. I actually fell in love with a pink jacket from J.Crew when I saw it at their presentation last year.  It turned out to be a very expensive Collection […]

Bon Weekend

01 . 24 . 14

As you all know, we’re freezing in New York. That makes me even more excited to pick up the WSJ Magazine on Saturday, January 25th, which features a shoot in sunny Mexico.  Model Andreea Diaconu was photographed at Costa Careyes, “a fantastical realm of art and architecture.”  It’s making me feel warmer already.  Bon Weekend!  […]

Green with Envy

02 . 06 . 12

Every time I see a green interior like the ones in The Rug Company collage above, it makes me want to completely redecorate.  I also don’t think I wear enough green.  I do have a big green cocktail ring but maybe I need a pair of army green pants or a bright green blouse.  Something […]

April Flowers

04 . 25 . 11

April showers are bringing early flowers in New York.  April is also bring crazy temperatures that had me wearing a winter coat on Friday and sandals on Sunday.  On the non-deluge days, I like to take a walk in Central Park to enjoy the fleeting flowers.  Here’s a little look at springtime in the city and a few cute […]

Happy Easter!

Beside peeps and bunny rabbits, I always associate Easter with flowers, pastel colors, and family gatherings.  Hope you enjoy this photographic ode to the holiday and spring!

Spring Awakening

04 . 13 . 11

Spring makes me want to fling open every door and window to let the fresh air inside.  It makes me want to bring the outdoors in and buy flowers everyday.  Most of all, it makes me want to be outside as much as possible.  Well, except when it’s cold and rainy like today but I’ll […]

Happy Spring!

03 . 21 . 11

Spring arrived at 7:21pm today and that means that the Park Avenue tulips can’t be far behind! Hooray! If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. – Anne Bradstreet

Chic in Barbour

03 . 10 . 11

Barbour didn’t invent oilcloth or waxed cotton coats but they sure did make them chic. What other company could lay claim to outfitting Steve McQueen and Queen Elizabeth?  I personally love the quilted versions and own the Ladies Flyweight Utility Jacket in dark stone.  The oil cloth coats tend to look a little boxy and […]

Spring Fling

03 . 08 . 11

I’m sure you’ve already heard me declare that I really want to burn all my winter clothes but I really mean it this time.  I’m over boots, tights, sweaters, scarves, hats, gloves, and coats.  I long for weather that will allow me to just wear jeans and flats with a top of course and a […]

March Madness

03 . 02 . 11

The March wind roars Like a lion in the sky, And makes us shiver As he passes by. When winds are soft, And the days are warm and clear, Just like a gentle lamb, Then spring is here. – Author Unknown Henri Matisse, Olive Trees at Collioure, 1905, The Metropolitan Museum of Art

I kept noticing birds everywhere I went at the New York International Gift Show.  The pillows from Dransfield & Ross are an especially beautiful example.  Birds are a harbinger of spring and here’s hoping that after this brutal winter they arrive in real life soon too!

Color My World

01 . 25 . 11

The biggest trend on the Spring/Summer 2011 runways was color.  Not just a little color but bright, bold, beautiful hues that will shake up your world.  After this brutal winter, I can’t think of anything I want to wear more than cheerful colors.  There are many interior designers who embrace color in their work like […]

Dreaming of Spring

01 . 24 . 11

I woke up to a temperature of 6 degrees this morning. That’s -14 to those of you on the Celsius scale.  I am so tired of pulling on tights and boots and twelve layers everyday.  In fact, I think I’d like to burn all my winter clothes.  Spring is still two months away and I’m already dreaming […]

Is it Spring yet?

01 . 06 . 11

I’m over winter which is really a problem since it’s only just begun.  That is why I absolutely love the new photos of Nicole Kidman in the February issue of Harper’s Bazaar.  They are like a breath of fresh air and are making me forget to that it’s supposed to snow in New York tomorrow.  […]
