I happened to walk down East 71st Street between Lexington and Third Avenues a few days ago and noticed a new for sale sign at 169 East 71st Street.  This Upper East Side brownstone is best known as the building where Holly Golightly lives in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The townhouse was split […]

Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I love a good townhouse.  Last night, I had the pleasure of attending one of the most beautiful ones in the West Village.  Bonpoint, the chicest children’s brand from France, opened a new store in Soho and hosted a dinner party afterward designed by my […]

When people ask me if I know what post has been the most popular in the almost seven years of writing Habitually Chic, I don’t even have to think.  I know it’s the post about Jenna Lyons’ brownstone in Brooklyn, Jenna Lyons Home: The Complete View from 2009. When I was photographing her for my book Creativity […]

Turns out that Luke and Julie Janklow are indeed divorcing. According to Page 6 today, the couple also just sold their beautiful townhouse in the West Village for $17.9 million which nets them quite a tidy profit since they only paid $4.5 for it in 2004. What recession right?! As I’m sure you remember, the […]

I love going through my old magazines. Sometimes you discover something you missed the first time around. Other times you realize that you’ve met the person whose home you’re looking at. While I’ve never met photographer Carter Smith, I do admire his photographs every month in Allure magazine and while looking through the January 2007 […]
