In the Press: Architectural Digest

August 11, 2017

Architectural Digest recently profiled me for their “A Day in the Life” column. One of my favorite things about being an interior designer is that no two days are ever exactly alike. From client meetings and visits to construction sites to time spent working on my upcoming book and my blog, it is all in […]

Classic Chic in The Hamptons

February 17, 2017

While in Southampton visiting my client last week, I stumbled upon a stunning house that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about.

Over the holidays, Fabian and I spent a few days in one of our favorite places, Napa Valley. On each of our many visits, we like to discover a few new finds, but always make time to go back to old favorites. Our go-to place for lunch is Archetype, the most charming restaurant, right in […]

Red isn’t a color I use very much. Very rarely do I wear red or use it prominently in the spaces I design for clients. However, it is my go-to nail color. I love that it is classic and glamorous! My staples are OPI “Big Apple Red” and “Color So Hot It Berns“. Known to […]
