Inside Roxanne Assoulin’s Amazing Studio.


Jewelry designer Roxanne Assoulin is truly an inspiration. Anyone who knows her can attest to that... Aside from being the mother-in-law of the outstanding Rosie Assoulin, she's been creating jewelry in NYC for over 30 years, and is one of the sweetest, hardest working and most aesthetically on point women I have ever met. She was one of Rosie's inspirations growing up, and interning for her was how Rosie met her son and future husband!  I stopped into her Flatiron studio to check it out, and it was like a creative candy land- She's got 12 foot long mood boards, bakers racks and trays full of … [Read more...]

Summer | Mint, Pop and Grasses.


My favorite picks from this summer's home offerings. I've always loved rattan and wicker and grass- who doesn't- but that doesn't jive in my city apartment and I was always kind of just forcing it anyway. Now I can go full throttle on the rattan, yay! Also, is it a known thing that all outdoor furniture is RIDICULOUSLY expensive and mostly not attractive? I would love some good sources from you all! Thanks! Classic Rainbow Mugs by Vignelli Associates, 1975. I bought these from the Lisa Perry Pop Up shop, but they aren't online. You can get at the MoMA. Reminds me of childhood no? $60 for … [Read more...]

Design | Cozy Collected in Santa Barbara.


This house! Soothing natural tones are layered in lush textures with collections, collections, collections. It's the home of accessory designer Kendall Conrad, who moved back to her home town of Santa Barbara with her husband photographer David Cameron and their two children. "Really, we should be in a white box with five modern pieces, because we both gravitate toward that," she says, "But this home fits a cozy family life. Maybe we’ll do the white box one day." I think we can all relate to that. We moved into our Jersey house, and as I start filling it up so we can live in it, I go back and … [Read more...]

Kelly Wearstler’s New Collection for Groun..


Just when I thought black and white graphic lines were over, I popped in to see Kelly Wearstler's new collection for Lee Sofa's Groundworks at the D&D. WOW. She's introduced some new fabrics and wall coverings, and for the first time a whole new line of furniture with Groundworks. The way she mixes raw and refined, structured and amorphous shapes... The subtlety of that pink/peach background. The wave of the hand painted squares. It's really good. The only thing I worry about.... as with all really good things... is that this collection is so good it will be everywhere, like her … [Read more...]
