Bisbee, Arizona

I was so excited when this Kate Spade ad campaign debuted a couple years ago… I spent six years in Arizona before heading to California… And one of my friends grew up in the small town of Bisbee. (And I’m certain she would find the gold jacket and big blue flower quite smart!) I can’t […]

A Domino Favorite: Black and White

3669015845_b4b4db7a40_o.jpg

I love this photo of black and white treasures displayed against a dark gray wall. (Check out the little black dress and white sweater, upper right!) This series of photos appeared in the December 2005 issue of Domino magazine as part of an article, “Black and White and Cool All Over”… I especially love the […]

Happy Weekend!

Hope you have a lovely weekend. I’m getting my hair done and then I’m going to an afternoon garden party! I’ve also resolved to listen to the stereo and avoid obsessive viewing of CNN. (I was watching until 1 am last night, fixated on every detail of Michael Jackson’s death. Poor man.) Photo credits: Macabre […]

Found in an old issue of Marie Claire Maison is a profile of a luminous Paris apartment… My favorite details: The painting of the woman in the yellow dress over the mantel in the pink salon; the mirrors and art in the kitchen; the red painted bookshelf (with books facing forward); the deco vase filled […]

Beautiful Iran

3654324679_a2448a6f50_o.jpg

These beautiful photos were taken by my friend Shokoofeh. (You can see them on her flickr page). I’m thinking today of her and all the women of Iran, with much sadness over the death of Neda Agha-Soltan.

Nivea Made Chic

3654609340_f55d3f012c_o.jpg

Who knew a face cream could be so glamourous… This ad series in Italian Vogue makes the cream look like La Mer… I have to admit I love Nivea’s vintage packaging. I bought two little blue tins in a Rome pharmacy. (They were much easier to pack than the stovetop milk steamer, the 20 wool […]
