America’s Most Glamorous Trailer Park.

paradise cove

Everything in this weeks T Magazine was A+ awesome - but I particularly loved this piece on the stretch of land called Paradise Cove in Malibu. It's a community of just 265 trailers that was established by fishermen in the 50s with just 100 trailers. In the 70's the park was expanded to its current size. The trailers went for around $70K each. Now they sell in the  millions despite the fact that they are just 400 - 1000 square feet, and there are just 10 feet between neighbors. They still got them malibu views! The residents are what you would imagine - super chill surfer types, but also … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Kimberly McDonald’s Studio.


Fine jewelry/ home designer, Kimberly McDonald, known for incorporating natural stones and elements in her pieces, has created a fab studio in NYC to match.  “I believe that surrounding yourself with natural pieces and things that reference nature creates a peaceful space,” she explained. Totally agree. She has a huge mood board that covers an entire wall, her sofas and chairs were reupholstered with her new signature fabrics, and  the wall coverings are part of her collar with Circa/ Phyllis Morris.  "The pattern we used is called Glam Rock and it’s done here in Malachite. I used the raw … [Read more...]

Chloe Sevigny’s East Village Apartment.


This one is an old but a goody. I may have posted this before, actually - but probably not all together. Chloe Sevigny bought her adorable 1862 East Village co-op seven years ago just after filming the pilot for Big Love.  “I came here with literally no furniture because the place I lived before this was, like, 200 square feet,” she says. She is one of the few people who was drawn to an apartment because of its low ceilings. “I walked in and felt transported, like I wasn’t in Manhattan anymore. It just felt womblike.” She covered the exposed brick walls with plaster painted pale pink, blue, … [Read more...]

Sadelle’s | The Chicest Bagel in NY.


Like all good New Yorkers, the family and I spend every Sunday Morning eating bagels and lox, while chilling drinking coffee in our PJ's and reading the newspaper. We pick up from Ess-a-Bagel. We consider ourselves #blessed. This fall, the "hottest new restaurant opening" in Manhattan was Sadelle's - a bagel, appetizing and Jewish Bakery restaurant in Soho opened by bagel whisperer Melissa Weller. Remember the old i tre merli? It's in that space on West Broadway. Suffice to say, this is the chicest bagel shop ever, and that it's freaking awesome, and the food is awesome. And trust me, I … [Read more...]

Sneak Peek | Holiday House 2015


Hi! Its that time of year again - hard to believe we are going to Holiday parties because its so ridiculously unseasonably warm in NYC right now - but we are! The Holiday House NY officially opens its doors again this week, and yesterday I was invited in for the press preview. I spent the morning on two  school trips with both kids, so I was kind of beat by the time I got there. Camera battery was also beat, so by the end I popped out my iPhone. So I'm apologizing for photos that are not superior, but I still thought you all would enjoy a peek. James Rixner's "St Andrew's Day" a grand … [Read more...]
