Simple and Chic

04 . 09 . 17

My sweet friend Amy Stone just had her apartment featured on One Kings Lane this weekend. A few months ago, she moved from the West Village to a Pre-War apartment on the Upper East Side. The Studio at One Kings Lane helped her pull it together. While Amy is not new to New York, I […]

Kate Schelter and I have many friends in common but I didn’t meet the artist and “creative girl” until she painted the menus for my EBTH dinner party which she also attended last fall. In honor of her upcoming book Classic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear It Out, One Kings Lane is looking into […]

Everyone always asks me where to stay in New York. There are so many variable that go into choosing a hotel in the city that it’s always hard to make recommendations. I might just make things easier by telling everyone to stay at the Whitby Hotel. The newest hotel from Firmdale Hotels is centrally located in midtown […]

You may remember my recent feature on Kate Rheinstein Brodsky‘s store KRB last month. Now One Kings Lane has a lovely feature on her family apartment on the Upper East Side. I’ve also included a few photos from her cover feature from Elle Decor in 2015. The best thing about the OKL story is that you […]

02 . 19 . 17

I was supposed to go away this long holiday weekend but decided to postpone my trip until a new hotel in the area is ready for guests. So my plan is to really Marie Kondo my apartment and life which I just found out is called Konmari. Part of this getting rid of things and […]

Uptown Meets Downtown

02 . 17 . 17

If you glanced quickly at this apartment featured on Architectural Digest, you might think it’s located on the Upper East Side of New York. Turns out, it is actually located in a brand new building in the West Village. Designer Alexander Doherty did a wonderful job adding wood moldings and traditional details that give the […]

Fashion & Flowers

02 . 12 . 17

One of the most beautiful presentations each season takes place in the beautiful Washington Square home of designer Adam Lippes and this year is no exception. His fall 2017 collection is filled with chunky sweaters and easy separates that you wish were available in store now. The flower arrangements by Putnam & Putnam complement the floral prints […]

One of the most anticipated events every January is the Winter Antiques Show which benefits the East Side House Settlement, a community resource in the South Bronx with programs that “focus on education and technology as gateways out of poverty and as the keys to economic opportunity.” The mix of art, antiques, objects, and jewelry never […]

KRB in NYC

01 . 19 . 17

Yesterday, I walked over to see the newly relocated KRB store. KRB stands for Kate Rheinsten Brodsky who owns the shop. Those of you in the design world might know that Kate is the daughter of legendary interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein. Suzanne is one of the nicest people I have ever met and the apple doesn’t […]

Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean there aren’t still fun things to do and see. The cold weather is a good time to head out for some art and culture or stay home and watch a new program. Here are a few suggestions to get you excited about January. I stopped by The Frick Collection before […]

Gramercy Park Goodness

01 . 05 . 17

The new February 2017 issue of Architectural Digest is due on newsstands soon but until I get a copy, I’m enjoying their Web Exclusive Home Tours. The latest is the Gramercy Park pre-war apartment of interior designer Bennett Leifer that was a disaster when he found it. He transformed the one bedroom into a show […]

Grey Days

11 . 30 . 16

It seems like I’m not the only one who loves grey. Fashion designer Jason Wu named his diffusion line Jason Wu Grey and his new apartment in Chelesa is decorated with numerous shades of grey. The space designed by Studio Mellone is featured in the new issue of the WSJ.magazine and mixes the grey with numerous neutrals and textures. Grey has […]

Blank Slate

11 . 22 . 16

I’ve never met real estate broker Jared Seligman in person but I feel like I know him very well thanks to Instagram. That’s where I first saw photos of his apartment designed by Patrick McGrath. The uptown rental is a temporary home while he’s in between apartments so he took the opportunity to pare down and […]

Blue Sunday

11 . 06 . 16

While the White House private quarters by Michael Smith in the December 2016 issue of Architectural Digest is getting all the press, it was the very chic Greenwich Village apartment of artist Jack Pierson that struck my fancy. In the article, Pierson said, “I decided that I wanted it to look like an apartment that […]

I’m currently in Birmingham, Alabama for a days for a work trip. After I’m finished, interior designer Andrew Brown has generously offered to show me around and take me antiquing. I’m looking forward to seeing the town but before I left New York, I took a long walk through the city to enjoy the changing […]
