Real Inspiring

There was a whole lot of crazy going on this season with The Real Housewives of New York City — did you see the finale when Aviva threw her prosthetic leg? Every year, I swear I’m not going to watch this train wreck but the saving grace this season was the fabulous makeover of Carole […]

Haute Picks – White and Gold

White and Gold and Glam OHMY I used to get teased in college for wearing white Vaurnet’s, of which I still own! White decor is my latest obsession. I have an all white living room so that I can change the accessories when I tire of them and change the whole look of the room […]

As I flipped through the book page by page, I realized that over the years I had clipped and catalogued many of her rooms from Veranda, House Beautiful, Elle Decor and more… This […]
