Dudes, I was just clicking through Barney's home section when writing the last post, and I stumbled upon Sarah Lavoine's new collection. I've posted her place before. It's a Cool Girl apartment. I love her collection of organically shaped mirrors. And also, everything else in the photos below. Preppy, but still fun! “Nothing is more depressing than a blank wall,”  she says. Tru dat.  … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Cozy on the UES.

DSC_1383

Right before I left Manhattan for the summer, I snuck in a little photo shoot with my friend designer Ilene Wetson and her client Katie. Katie is a single mom living in a three bedroom on the UES. Her home is warm and comfortable, and something that she and Ilene put together over late night phone sessions and emails. Ilene had been Katie's designer years earlier, when Katie designed her home with … [Read more...]

Ok, so last week, the super special post was the amazing Time Capsule Interior, and this week, we are looking at an actual time capsule.

My niece was in between college and work and she began to organize them, sending the … [Read more...]

Can I be reborn as Shannon Wollack's kid? Please? Slim Aarons prints! Campaign furniture, hot pink grasscloth, and literally her NAME IN LIGHTS?!? Too cool for school. I love the idea that a nursery doesn't have to be overly cutesy. I think this room is so girly, fab and fun! This, plus Christine's son's nursery are probably my two favorites ever. (I also love this one, I shot it YEARS ago before … [Read more...]

CUT AND PASTE | Sajjad Musa

It's no secret that I have a little mini love affair with surrealist collages. I think I am always fascinated by whatever medium of art I'm not good at. Collage is deceptive, because it seems much easier than it is. When done correctly the whole is SO MUCH GREATER than the sum of its parts. When done badly, the collages mean nothing and say nothing. Mixed media artist Sajjad Musa submitted his … [Read more...]

Sasha Bikoff | UES POP ART APT ;)

It's always an amazing day when I get to share a Sasha Bikoff project! This is the Upper East Side rental of Sasha's social media director, Raquel. The whole story is now up on Domaine! Wooohoo! I love how different this is from Sasha's other work, it shows how much Sasha reflects the interests and hobbies of the owner in the space. Raquel is 23 years old,  a tennis fanatic, absolutely loves pop … [Read more...]
