Happy New(ish) Year! I’ve read it’s okay to say this until the end of the month. I made it just under the wire. I cannot believe February 1st is next week. I’ve been meaning to check out the new exhibit at the Ara Pacis since the day it opened. It closes February 17th. If you … Continue reading Marcello Mastroianni Exhibit at the Museo dell’Ara Pacis
Put me firmly in the YES camp. I’m the middle of sourcing cabinets for our Anguilla Beach House Project. As I read various online design magazines and blogs, it appears that white kitchens are “out”. People are sick of them. Apparently, they are boring and show no creativity. I disagree. I strongly believe that kitchens … Continue reading White Kitchens – Yes or No?
My friend Erica invited me to join her on a press trip for the preview of the 16th Architecture Biennale. I haven’t been to any of the Biennale. I follow the art, cinema, and architecture ones on social media but it’s not the same. My first (and last) trip to Venice was twelve years ago, … Continue reading La Biennale Venice – 2018
You may have heard that there’s a royal wedding this weekend in the U.K. I’m very curious about Meghan’s wedding dress. Her style is classic. She wears the clothes, not the other way around. Meghan’s not jumping on every random trend and clearly knows what works for her figure. The only look I didn’t love … Continue reading The Design Files – Royal Wedding Dresses

I loved sending and receiving cards. This was a tradition I hoped to continue once I moved to … Continue reading Taking My Holiday Salutations To The Next Level With Paperless Post

She’s a smart, dynamic, woman with a strong style POV. Tamu is also kind, down to earth, and hilarious. When she said she wanted … Continue reading My Tamu’s Cafe Interview

I saw on Instagram that Nathan Turner was shooting an online series for The Design Network. What a fun idea. Nathan is a very talented interior designer but he’s also known for being quite the host. For this series, he has invited several of his design friends to cook a little something, something in the … Continue reading Snack Chat – A Summer Treat with Nathan Turner
*Kind of. I cannot stress how excited I am about this news! METROPOLITAN HOME was one of my favorite shelter magazines. While many of its competitors focused on big suburban houses, MH zeroed in on city living and contemporary design. During the massive financial and housing crisis of 2008, MH and several other magazines shut … Continue reading Metropolian Home is Back*
I’m not sure why I started blogging ten years ago today. The blogging world has changed a great deal since my first post POST. Back then nobody was making money from blogging. It was way to communicate, connect, and create. I rarely read old posts. Some make me cringe (and not just because of all … Continue reading My Ten Year Anniversary.
