Hampton Designer Showhouse 2016: Steven Stolman

Right off the foyer in the 2016 Hampton Designer Showhouse is this petite stunner of a powder room, designed by Steven Stolman. It immediately caught my eye due to the obvious – the large scale mural wallpaper, created from a floral watercolor painting by artist Carmelo Blandino. It certainly makes a … Read more ››

Hampton Designer Showhouse 2016: Kate Singer

I visited the 2016 Hampton Designer Showhouse yesterday, and it was so good that this year, instead of doing my usual Part I and Part II posts, I’m going to have to go room-by-room…so much great design! The 10,000+ square foot house was built by Bodenchak Design and Build, and … Read more ››

London and Paris

A Few Good Links

It’s going to be 99 degrees in NYC this weekend – not a good look for the city. Which is why I’m rather happy to be leaving for the weekend – heading home to Long Island for a family event and hanging by the pool – the only place to … Read more ››

Artist I Love: Molly Wright

Snow Day in the City I discovered the work of Molly Wright when I happened to her mentioned in a Twitter convo between Sarah Tolzmann and Nikki Rappaport – which isn’t really that weird, but for some reason I totally feel like I eavesdropped on their conversation. Anyway, Sarah mentioned her … Read more ››

Sad.

Hey guys. I had a post and a fun announcement planned for today, but it just doesn’t seem important in light of last night’s events in Nice. I am so. So. Sad, and disgusted by what is happening in our world. It seems that a horrific attack happens now every day, … Read more ››

When in French

I love finding new book releases to get excited about, and I have a feeling we’ll be hearing a lot about this one as the release date (September 13th) draws nearer. When in French is the memoir of Lauren Collins, who in her early thirties moves to London and falls in love … Read more ››

NYIAD Complete Course in Interior Design Review

As many of you know, for my 30th birthday my parents gave me the gift of enrollment in the New York Institute of Art and Design’s Complete Course in Interior Design. I planned on writing a review when I finished it, but that won’t be for a while and a few … Read more ››

Photo Essays: Bethesda Terrace

Bethesda Terrace is one of my favorite parts of Central Park. I find the history and design of the Park to be fascinating, so for anyone who shares my fascination: Bethesda Terrace is the Park’s only formal architectural feature. Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the Park’s designers, envisioned “a sweeping … Read more ››
