I've had my eye on The Dean, the latest project from Will Cooper and Ari Heckman of ASH NYC, ever since they told me about it last year. The Dean is a boutique hotel in Providence. When I was in college I dated a dude that went to Brown, and ten years ago, there was one restaurant in Providence that you took your parents to when they visited.

Duh. It's in a 3rd story loft on Greene St, and it's the brick and mortar entity of the online shop THE LINE. This apartment has been staged as the light-filled home of “a discerning woman who appreciates a finely tailored jacket as much as a bespoke velvet sofa”. Everything is shop-able with in the context of an actual home. Coats are … [Read more...]

All Wes Anderson films are visually astounding and the latest The Grand Budapest Hotel, does not disappoint. Who knew I could enjoy red, tangerine and citrine lacquers, purple tuxedos, pastel bath houses, pink pastry boxes and a fictional country in Alpine Europe set in the 30's so much?
