There is nothing I love more than taking long walks in the West Village and the Upper East Side to photograph seasonal decorations. The autumn doors this year were some of the best. Enjoy! “I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves.” – Ann Drake Photos […]

My friend and I couldn’t believe the Louis Vuitton exhibition Volez Voguez Voyagez was free. It’s so large and extensive that they could easily charge $50 for admission. The exhibition, curated by Olivier Saillard, retraces the adventure of the House of Louis Vuitton from 1854 to the present. It begins with the iconic trunks for […]

Jayson Home, the beloved Chicago store, has just opened in downtown New York. It is so exciting to have their mix of new and vintage finds in the City that Never Sleeps. You can now find anything you need for your own apartment, a client project, or the perfect gift at their new location. You […]

I can’t believe that November magazines are already on newsstands. The latest issue of Architectural Digest features the West Village townhouse of actress Julianne Moore that’s surprisingly down to earth for a movie star. I appreciate that it looks like she decorated it herself and that is feels very personal. “I like things that have real […]

I’m super excited to be hosting a joint Habitually Chic 10 year anniversary party and William Sonoma Home new store opening in Chelsea on Thursday, September 28th. I’ll be celebrating and sharing styling tips and my favorite fall finds from Williams Sonoma Home. There will also be chic craft cocktails, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and great […]

Fashion week just ended in New York and the nice weather led to a lot of great street style looks. As you know, I only highlight the ensembles that are relatable and wearable. I’m absolutely loving all the longer midi-length dresses and cropped loose trousers that both show off great shoes. I actually saw three […]

Behind Closed Doors

09 . 12 . 17

I never tire of seeing photos of the New York apartment of Vogue International Editor at Large Hamish Bowles. The very colorful and traditional home designed by Studio Peregalli will be featured in a new book New York: Behind Closed Doors by Polly Devlin and photos by Annie Schlecter. “I was so delighted to have […]

The French cult brand Sézane opened last week in New York and they are already a huge hit. I stopped by on Friday when I was downtown on again on Saturday with a friend when Jessica Alba also happened to be shopping. The large store and floor to ceiling shelves are filled with clothing, shoes, […]

Cuyana New York Pop Up

09 . 04 . 17

The day after I mentioned visiting the Cuyana showroom in San Francisco, I received an email alerting me that they are popping up in New York this week. Even better is that they will be in my neighborhood. The pop up will feature Cuyana pieces for fall 2017 as well as their most popular staples. […]

Loft Living

08 . 28 . 17

Habitually Chic has always been about pretty pictures and a place to get away the troubles of the day. But it’s hard to figure out what to post when many people are experiencing a natural disaster. Then I then I remembered that the owners of this New York loft met volunteering after Hurricane Sandy.  Meredith […]

Do you remember the Beautiful Bonpoint Dinner that I attended a few years ago in a Wonderful West Village Townhouse?  Well, the family who lived there moved back to England last year and put their Bank Street home on the market for $26 Million. It’s recently had a price drop and can be yours for […]

It came as no surprise that CeCe Barfield Thompson worked for interior designer Bunny Williams when I saw that drinks table perfectly placed next to an armchair in her apartment feature on One Kings Lane today. “I learned so much in Bunny’s office, but I’d say what I really took away is the importance of […]

Lovely Layered Loft

07 . 26 . 17

Neal Beckstedt designed a small but impressive room in this year’s Kips Bay Decorator Show House so it was interesting to come across what he can do on a larger scale on Architectural Digest this week. I’m not always a fan of contemporary architecture, especially when it’s too cold and angular but has managed to […]

My friend Alice first introduced me to The White Company years ago but for some reason I never visited their stores in London. Now I don’t have to travel across the pond to experience their stylish and timeless products. Their new store on lower Fifth Avenue in the Flatiron district carries a myriad of candles […]

Felt Bodega

06 . 10 . 17

New York has a bodega, or independently run convenience store, every few blocks. They are the backbone of the city but none is as awe inspiring as the felt bodega art installation titled 8 Till Late by artist Lucy Sparrow at the The Standard High Line. Over 9,000 different grocery items from toilet paper to […]

We don’t have that many hotels on the Upper East Side of New York so it’s big news when a landmark one gets a chic new facelift. The Lowell Hotel was always a well respected but sleepy hotel but after it’s redesign by Michael S. Smith, it’s become the new clubhouse for the uptown set. I […]
