Snaps from an English Garden

June 14, 2018

Just wanted to quickly share a few snaps with you.   We’re in England for the week visiting family and attending a dear friend’s wedding.  We’re heading back to France next week but it is so nice to pop over here, to my husband’s home country where I also have family. I love England in summer and there is nothing quite like the staggering beauty of an English garden.  Full of roses, peonies, lavender, this one is like a dream.   …

Effortless Wrap Dress for Summer

May 10, 2018

Earlier this week, Will and I introduced a new column on the sidebar of the homepage — “snapshots” — which is going to be updated daily with pretty photos, behind the scenes videos and snaps of my latest outfits/beauty tricks.   We are planning to continue with some of our more home-based content (like entertaining, collecting, decorating), but didn’t want to lose sight of the fun of discovering a new clothing or jewelry brand, an easy to wear dress or a…

I often get asked how I go about selecting flowers…

3 Ways to Maximize Your Dinner Party with Matouk

January 18, 2018

Set a beautiful, inviting table to welcome your guests!  This table was an absolute pleasure to set.  Working with Matouk linens is so so luxurious, they are elegant and timeless without feeling intimidating or too good to pull out for a more laid-back gathering.   They are great staples for life (so if you’re getting married soon, hello registry!).    What is particularly fun is how versatile these colors are — I had a completely different vision when I arrived at the…

3 Little Tricks For Arranging Flowers

January 16, 2018

It’s no secret that I love having fresh flowers in the house.   My love for flowers started in childhood, it was something my mother valued but perhaps my confidence in selecting the ones I love is due to my great friend Anne from Charleston Stems who I have done so many creative projects with and learned from.  Regardless, I am no expert at arranging flowers but, I do make sure to have a healthy rotation of cut flowers in the…
