A Designer Previews tip: If you want to be where it’s happening, on Thursday night, this week, head to official opening of The Dean Hotel in Providence RI. (tell them I gave you my invitation)! It felt like the coldest day of the year when, last month, I paid a visit to Providence’s newest hotel. […]

My first visit to a COMO hotel was in Ubud, Bali. It left a beautiful imprint in my mind. I have memories filled with exotic images. I haven’t returned to Bali so when I heard about the Metropolitan by COMO Hotel opening on Miami Beach, with a new interior design by Italian designer Paola Navone, […]
With the 2015 Oscar’s upon us, it’s the moment to share the photos of fan-mail envelopes from 1951-59 that I got to see last summer. It was a perfect day when I visited, as I do every year, the eternally chic and expertly curated shop, Andrew Spindler Antiques, in Essex Massachusetts. Long before 1stdibs.com had Andrew on […]
Another week. Continued freezing conditions and massive snowfall. Exactly one month ago I returned home from the dry heat of Palm Springs. In last week’s post I gave you Greece as a way to think of warmth and sun. This week I’m thinking about Palm Springs, a city that has more than 350 days of […]
The work known as ‘needle felting’ seen seen here, as far as we’re concerned, screams CHRISTMAS GIFT! Meaning, for someone who has everything, what could be better than opening a box containing a cool, eccentric, and totally unexpected object? I say: Look no further. Dive into the sculptural work of Heidi Bleacher. It’s not only that […]
This year the Christmas parties have been beautiful, yet one is especially memorable: At the Promemoria showroom, a few days ago, I felt— for a moment— transported to Italy. I was suddenly in Milan. The crowd was chic, the Proseco was flowing; the pasta abundant. I was actually attending their celebration, “the traveling pasta party,” […]
It’s so cold on the east coast that I’m focusing on being in Greece. I’m remembering driving through miles upon miles of olive groves, the unreal color of the water of the Aegean Sea, where we would swim until 8PM at night. I’m imagining sitting on my balcony on the island of Spetses. Yes, holding […]
I decided to ask several people in the design/architecture world what they were most thankful for this year, on this most American of holidays. Ironically, most of them weren’t even born in the USA, but all had taken to Thanksgiving. Their responses were personal, thoughtful, and of course, made reference to their work. In each, […]
When is a doorknob not just a doorknob, but a piece of sculpture? When it’s been conceived by designers David Scott and Tim Campbell, and impeccably produced by SA Baxter, esteemed maker of architectural hardware. During a recent visit to the SA Baxter showroom at the NYDC New York Design Center, the experience felt more akin […]
