ROSA ET AL is a little boutique hotel in the up and coming artsy district of Porto, Portugal and it is a complete delight. It's just 8 rooms in a refurbished townhouse. It is owned by Patricia and Emanuel de Sousa, the architect who oversaw the reconstruction, and sits on a street that is being revived by chic boutiques, farm to table restaurants and more. I also really love the way this was shot. Anyone going on any fun trips this summer? Learn more ROSA ET AL … [Read more...]

Calvin Klein's historic mansion in Miami Beach. Built in 1929, purchased by Klein in 1999, photographed by Bruce Webber for Vanity Fair in 2008. For sale now for $16 million.

It's a masterpiece. The minimalism. The texture and … [Read more...]

It's the Brooklyn home of my friend designer Jennifer Shalom, which she designed in collaboration with Cuffhome, using many of their custom made products as well. We shot this a few months ago when Jen and I were both 9 months pregnant. Fun times! This was a particularly exciting shoot for me, because I got to play around and take artsy shots of the architecture and tone on tone textures in the home.

IMG_0620

Hope you all had a great weekend! I'm so excited to finally share this. A few months ago, I was introduced to designer Nikki Rosenthal of Bespoke Interior Design when she hired me to style a bunch of her projects alongside photographer Patrick Cline. We became fast friends and tore through Manhattan finding the coolest stuff for her projects! I love Nikki's aesthetic. It's elegant and glam but has a rock and roll coolness to it. It's dressed up, but all the rooms are comfortable to live in and be in. Even looking at the pictures right now, I'm thinking DAMN, everyone should live this chic! A … [Read more...]
