I knew that Bunny Mellon had designed the White House Rose Garden but I didn’t know how close she was to Jackie and President Kennedy. I’ve just finished the chapters that delve into this friendship in the book Bunny Mellon: Life of an American Style Legend. Bunny and Paul Mellon had a house in the […]

I buy many books the minute they are published but I don’t always get around to reading them right away. I also feel like our tech obsessed world has given me social media induced ADD. It’s hard not to scroll through Instagram at night instead of reading but I’m trying to remedy this issue. I’ve […]

Place of Peace

09 . 23 . 16

The East Hampton home where Jackie Bouvier Kennedy spent her childhood summers can now be yours. The 11-acre estate on Further Lane known as Lasata which is a Native American word for Place of Peace was designed by architect Arthur C. Jackson in 1917. It was purchased by Delphine and Reed Krakoff in 2007 and was extensively […]

Jackie at Home

10 . 05 . 11

One of the items that is included in my One Kings Lane Blogger Tastemaker Tag Sale is the Sotheby’s catalog from the sale of The Estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis from 1996.  Auction catalogs are another great source of inspiration.  Not only are they filled with artwork, objects and furniture for sale but many include […]

Chic in Shades

02 . 09 . 11

I wanted to buy myself a new pair of sunglasses before my trip but ran out of time. I have a pair of Tom Ford gold aviator sunglasses that still look good but I feel like it’s time for a change.  I have been debating on a pair of large Jackie O style shades or the new […]

I watched part of the HGTV special about Christmas at the White House yesterday and couldn’t resist posting of these photos of the Kennedy family at Christmas.  Some are from the White House years like the tree in the Blue Room in 1961 above and some are from Jackie’s life in the 1970’s.  Enjoy! Caroline […]

“If you produce one book, you will have done something wonderful in your life.” – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis There are not one but two fabulous new books that chronicle the more than two decades that Jackie Kennedy Onassis spent as a book editor.  Jackie as Editor: The Literary Life of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Greg Lawrence […]

Reporting in Style

11 . 10 . 10

Whenever I visit Barneys, I love to check out the books on the 9th floor. I came across one book recently that is especially chic. In English it’s called Reporting in Style and in French, Collection Privée.  Regardless of the name, the photographs by Benno Graziani will speak for themselves.  Benno Graziani was one of the […]

Portrait of a Rider

06 . 28 . 10

When I was researching my last post on Equestrian Chic, I came across an interesting book entitled The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onassis: Postrait of a Rider. Jackie started riding at a very young age as you can see by some of the photos here and continued to ride with her own children. She […]

Smash His Camera

06 . 03 . 10

Ron Galella was the original stalkerazzi and his most famous prey was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He tormented her and even followed her to Capri. She obtained a restraining order against him. The New York Post at the time called it “the most co-dependent celeb-pap(arazzi) relationship ever.” Without Ron Galella, we wouldn’t have any of these […]

Jazzing Up Jack Rogers

08 . 08 . 09

Jack Rogers Navajo sandals have been popular since they were created in the 1960’s especially after Jackie Kennedy was photographed wearing them in Palm Beach and Portofino. To me they have always exemplified summer but now the company is expanding into a full lifestyle brand with shoes and bags that you can wear the entire […]
