Versailles à vélo

07 . 21 . 09

One of my readers recently emailed me about her bicycle trip through Versailles. It sounded fun but definitely not for this city mouse. All I could picture was falling and breaking my arm and ruining my trip. (Although, I could experience the supposedly superior French care system first hand.) But a few days later, as […]

I have been joking lately that once you’re done visiting the ridiculously expensive shops on East 11th Street, pop into Etos where you can actually afford to buy something! I finally had the pleasure of checking out this chic shop and I’m so glad that I did because not only did I find things for […]

If it turns out to be sunny this weekend, I will be baking myself to a golden glow in order to build up my tan again. But just in case it rains for the 30th day in a row, my alternate plan is to see Cheri at the Paris Theatre. I have a weakness for […]

All the buzz about Valentino: The Last Emperor had me going back to look at the Paris Penthouse of Giancarlo Giammetti, the business brains counterpart to Valentino’s creative genius. There is luxury and then there is the luxurious and lavish lifestyle of Giancarlo and Valentino. It’s beyond perfection and so is this duplex penthouse a […]

Noir et Blanc

I spent part of this New Year’s Day surfing the internet in search of interesting interiors and I’m so glad I did because I it led me to Fabrice Diomard. Most of the information about Fabrice is in French and has caused me to add “take a refresher French class” to my New Year’s resolutions […]

J’adore this decor!

09 . 16 . 08

I’m going to have to have multiple homes to deal with my multiple decorating loves. Usually, I like clean rooms with a mix of modern and antique furnishings but for some reason I LOVE this romantic and ridiculously girly home in New Orleans decorated by Hal Williamson that is featured in the October 2008 issue […]

C’est Magnifique!

09 . 11 . 08

Last night, I had the privilege of attending a little soiree at the showroom of Belgium born fashion designer Jonathan Riss who’s label is named Jay Ahr, after the phonetic pronunciation of his initials. Most of the guests were speaking en français since Mr. Riss also works and has a showroom in Paris. The most […]

Bonjour Paree!

12 . 11 . 07

MTV Music Videos MTV Shows Entertainment News How come I never found an internship that sent me to Paris?! Good thing I can live vicariously through Lauren and Whitney! I can’t wait until these shows air in the spring! Until then, I guess I will have to make due with Gossip Girl.

I don’t even know where to begin to describe Hervé Van der Straeten. He’s a furniture designer, a galerie owner, a jewelry maker, a lipstick case and perfume bottle creator, and the life partner to another habitually chic Frenchman, Bruno Frisoni, the designer behind Roger Vivier. I’m sure I’ve left something out but you get […]

I Heart Assouline

09 . 24 . 07

I love books! As does everyone in the blog world it seems, which is why I thought I’d take a moment to profile one of the chicest luxury publishers ever, Assouline. It’s surprising that the company was only created by Proper Assouline about ten years ago. For some reason, it seems like they have been […]

Life with Andrée

08 . 22 . 07

I’m not a huge fan of black and white or neutral interiors but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate them when I see them done well. Such is the case of the Paris townhouse designed by the uber-fabulous French interior designer Andrée Putman. She’s so chic she frankly scares me a little bit! I picture […]

The Paris apartment of children’s wear designer Cordelia de Castellane is a a colorful and modern mix of luxury and frivolity that definitely doesn’t take itself too seriously. Photographs by Pascal Chevallier
