A couple of weeks ago I participated in a wonderful charity event for the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House where I joined a group of other talented designers and we each created a unique tabletop for the charity’s Spring gala. Curbed.com – the go to site for all all-things fabulous in design, decor, and shelter shadowed me during my set up for a fun new video series called Setting the Table which I am so excited to share! You can watch the video above to see me in action plus hear my best tips for setting your own fabulous table! And click here to read the full article! Thanks to the Curbed team for featuring me – what a thrill!

Here’s a look at what I’ve been up to over the past month, through the lens of my Instagram! Above an image taken from beach at the Viceroy Riviera Maya where I was able to escape to for a little R&R recently. I added the text over this instagram photo using my favorite new iPhone app called Over which allows you to add beautiful typography over your photos.
Fell in love with Essie’s new Sleek Stick nail strips. Especially loving the red and cold pattern called So Haute! How much do you love the name?!
Was recently introduced to the bespoke framer J. Pocker and Son and received a wonderful lesson in the art of framing from Robyn Pocker who heads up the company founded by her grandfather in the 1920s.
Spent some time perusing old issues of Domino for inspiration. Even though the mag ceased publication more than four years ago, flipping through the old issues never get’s old!
I also paid a visit to the Hickory Chair showroom at the NYDC where this cheery yellow sofa caught my eye. I’ll be visiting High Point next month as a guest of Hickory Chair and couldn’t be more excited about touring their 25,000 square foot showroom full of beautiful design.
And lastly, another shot from my Mexico trip. Wishing I was back there already!
