Sarah Lavoine At Barney’s.


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.


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...]

DESIGN | Poppy’s Un-Nursery.

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...]

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...]

Carole Radziwill’s Aparment.


Last night was the season finale of RHONY. I love all the seasons, except maybe Miami, but I think I like New York the best. Maybe it's because sometimes I see Sonja and Luanne around the Upper East, maybe it's because they are just the most interesting cast, or maybe it's because of that magical juxtaposition in which a grown woman will throw a prosthetic leg, complete with pedicure and designer … [Read more...]

Time Capsule Interiors|Modern 70′s Retreat


If you are going to read one post on Sketch42 this week (this month!) make it this one! As I've stated many times before, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the concept of "Time Capsule Interiors." I got the idea, because my grandmother's two houses are completely preserved chinoiserie chic 70's acid trip awesomeness and I LOVE them, and always have. In fact, I think I pitched the idea of a "Time Capsule Interiors" … [Read more...]
