For Monday

For Monday, a great example of perfect layering…without each item the room would feel less than. These natural wood headboards always get me.




Motu Tane

Motu Tane is a private island in French Polynesia. It is still so hot here in London, that I am going to imagine being on this tropical island enjoying the heat instead of in central London not enjoying the sticky icky heat. I’m not complaining or anything. The best part is that it is designed by Christian Liaigre. You can rent the private island for $40,000 a night. Enjoy!

Functional use of dark woods to minimize the bright sun. The red chair gives a POP and some energy to the room. The natural abaca rugs add texture. Perfectly complimentary palate of materials.

This might be my favorite spot. I love the brightly colored pillows with the dancing fire in front. I am OBSESSED with Christian Liaigre furniture. This stool is crafted and conceived to fit right into the environment. I would like one for myself!

Chic in Palm Beach

I am really loving this interior. It is fresh, chic, casual, streamlined and warm all in one. Kelly Klein’s home in Palm Beach, FL. Designed by David Piscuskas of 1100 Architect.


Vintage Hans J. Wegner chairs, a casual lean restoration hardware sofa, and my favorite coffee table of ALL time…the diesis table by Antonio Citterio! I love the juxtaposition of the chunky textural abaca rug with the clean hard lines of the coffee table and the softness of the sofa. LOVE!


The light fixture over the dining room table is by Workstead, and the seating near the fireplace is by Urban Zen. Love that outdoor fireplace by the way. I am very much appreciating the wood cedar ceilings, and teak doors. Radiant heat warms the cement and white limestone underfoot in the living area.




Another favorite, the FK 87 Grasshopper Chair in the corner. The length of the drapes are perfect…just touching with a hint of puddle. Gorgeous ceiling detailing with the drape track recessed and disappearing.  Wide-plank limed oak for the bedroom floors.


Restoration Hardware linens. What a cool photograph…a Flip Schulke photograph of Muhammad Ali.


Teak framed glass doors.


This stainless-steel standing shower by Marcel Wanders for Boffi has such a sense of humor. The area is enclosed by cypress walls and gates.




For Friday

Yes, yes, just perfect for today. On a personal note, I am 4 weeks away from my baby girl’s due date…so very excited!


A pair of ’60s Brazilian chairs and a photograph of Bob Dylan by Jerry Schatzberg.


Dining table and chairs are by BDDW. Custom rugs by Studio Four NYC.


1970s leather Pace sofas have lacquered bases.


Suede upholstered wall. Lamps are by Flair, bedding is by Calvin Klein Home, the stool is by Poul Kjaerholm, one of my favs and the chair and ottoman are vintage Vladimir Kagan.



Tub and fittings are by Boffi. Walls veneered in maple.


East Hampton Casual

I had the most wonderful day yesterday. I had the pleasure of spending the better part of the day with the lovely Anna! We had a long tea and french macaroons at Tavern and just enjoyed the afternoon and evening. Next time, let’s all meet up at this house in the Hamptons by S Russell Groves! I am kinda falling in love with his work.

In the Sun

Can you tell St. Barths is on my mind?! Another incredible home by Wolfgang Ludes with rich sexy dark woods, natural textures, and sandy upholstery.


Charles sofas, Antonio Citterio chairs, a Patricia Urquiola woven chair and Atelier Oï tables.









It’s getting a bit nippy out and feeling like Christmas is coming! This bedroom feels warm and cozy, perfect to curl up and wait 19 days for Santa!


The bed is styled perfectly and these Poul Kjaerholm PK22 chairs are a definite favorite. Bleached wood everywhere – yes, yes, yes!


Can I have this chair too? 1970s “Brasilia” Easy Chair by Oscar Niemeyer. That base is just too fabulous.


Loooong nightstand and short shag rug – love.


Not really wintery, but how pretty?! Modern white barn house.


Richard Schultz outdoor furniture.


Shelton, Mindel & Associates



Pretty, pretty

This room feels so calm. Such a pretty color palate. Obsessing over the globe lamp by Max Bill. A Carlo Hauner chair, and a T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings tripod lamp also highlight the room.


I love these mirrors! Apparently made of horse mangers! What is that? And what a gorgeous bronze metal tub…perfect for a soak.



My perfect mix of materials with the bleached hardwood. Happy, happy.  The raised stairway is very unusual…kind of gives it a surreal feel.


Perfect hang out place. Love the sunken in aspect, the floating shelves and the blue sofas!

A special day

Today is my two year wedding anniversary! My husband and I are celebrating in Madrid. This is for you my love, one day you will have a mountain house, I promise!


Aerin Lauder’s perfectly warm yet contemporary mountain house in Aspen.



I would take one of those cozy jackets…although I hope it is faux fur!


Vintage chair and nightstands. Feels toasty and intimate, created by dynamic natural textures of wool, woods and furs.



This is my favorite room. The wood wall, the wood pendant, fur pillows and of course a friendly little bear.

A cozy place

I am hanging out right now in my hotel in Milan while it is pouring rain! I can totally imagine myself in this apartment weathering the rain and reading a fabulous book…can you?


Interesting mix or art and a few vintage pieces. The idea of these floor to ceiling built-in’s is so great for storage, but also creates an interested rhythm on the wall.


A perfect place for a cup of tea or to write a letter.


Cosy knits and what an awesome orange jack door stop!



Small space but full of style.



Now this is where my feet will be kicked up reading a great book with the fire on, of course.
