I want to change your mind about wicker!
In this image of a Connecticut home featured in Architectural Digest, Miles Red creates a handsome and informal seating area using wicker furniture that once belonged to tobacco heir Doris Duke.   With wicker, it seems, that you either love or hate it. I happen to adore it and I find that it lends itself so perfectly to so many decorating styles. I do love it for its casual, coastal and relaxed feel, and yet it lends itself so perfec...

So proud to call this woman my friend!
Chef Silvia Baldini, owner of Strawberry & Sage, wins Food Network's Chopped! A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to Silvia Baldini, a local chef and caterer who would be appearing on last Tuesday’s April Fool’s Day episode of "Chopped,"  Fake Cake, Real Stakes, vying for the coveted Chopped title and $10,000. She had to convince hosts Marc Murphy, Maneet Chauhan, Chris Santos that she had what it took. As always on this show, loo...

keep it simple... mix and match... old and new....
Simple and elegant ideas for your Easter table. Image via Larry Ratt. I've never been an over-the-top person when it comes to holiday decor - I think this applies to most aspects of my life. I believe that less is more - and that modest ideas can be subtle yet make a statement, simple yet sophisticated. I love to use what I already have in my home and in my backyard. And I believe in keeping things simple. The fewer the steps needed,...

Fashion is never constant. It's constantly evolving, refining, and always borrowing and often improving from the past. From the runway to the streets I've been noticing a shift toward wearing dresses over pants. While it may sound silly, even confusing to some, it's a look that when done properly can look refined, sophisticated and effortless. This look transcends your wardrobe's functionality, giving your garments a greater range of we...

Dressing for the change of seasons - White jeans and fur can co-exist beautifully! It's that time of year. Mother Nature will be taking us on her erratic roller-coaster-weather journey. It will be hot one day and frigid the next. What to wear seems to take on an entirely new meaning this time of year. Spring makes it's debut next Friday. But what exactly does that mean? While we equate Spring with warm sunny days, green grass, buds b...

Lilly Pulitzer and Target create the cutest party ad!
It's a marriage made in Heaven. Lilly Pulitzer and Target. The new line debuts on April 19th. The new commercial celebrating this partnership does so in true party style and, according to AdWeek Magazine, dubs this 60 spot as a soiree to fit Jay Gatsby. I daresay Lilly herself would be proud. I think the ad is adorable, lively, colorful and so much fun!  The ad was created by Chandelier Creative and features notable personalities suc...

Salade Frisee aux Lardons. Image via Jessica Gordon Ryan I had the most inspirational day with the lovely and talented Patricia van Essche. You may know her as PVE. Or you may know her as the talented hand which pens the lively and colorful J.McLaughlin illustrations. Her whimsical artwork has caught the attention of many, including the discerning eyes of Town & Country. Long before she was PVE she was a designer and design director ...

Risk or regret... it is possibly our greatest challenge
It's one of the hardest things we can ask ourselves - It's one of the hardest decisions we will ever have to make, and it never truly gets easier, especially for those who regularly need to be pushed to the edges of our comfort zones. There are clearly the risk-takers and the non-risk takers, the gamblers and the non-gamblers. Which type are you? I tend to be the non-risk taker. I'm the person, by nature, who plays it safe. A few yea...

it all starts with some flowers...
While many people dread Monday, I find that it's Sunday that often has me a bit unravelled. Technically it's still technically the weekend, we're often anticipating and preparing for the week ahead. As, parents we're never truly "off" and many of us spend this day doing chores around the house - changing sheets, organizing schedules, planning meals and grocery shopping - if we're not busy driving the children off to their various sporti...

There's a reason why casseroles were so popular for so long...
Casseroles: Bringing comfort to the family table I grew up in the era of the casserole. I happened to adore them all as a child. Usually these dishes consisted of noodles, some form of protein and maybe a vegetable. It was a one bowl meal that was delicious and comforting.These meals became popular in the US in the 1950s, and they were still very much en vogue in my home in the 1970 and into 80s. Unlike most of my friend's mothers, ...

Last fall I attended a small event to celebrate the launch of a new product, at a friend's kitchen design showroom in Old Greenwich, Connecticut that was being catered by Chef Silvia Baldini's catering company, Strawberry and Sage. As I began to photograph the event and the food prepared by Chef Silvia, the chef and I struck up a conversation and seemed to hit it off immediately. Perhaps it was my European upbringing that somehow rela...
