I absolutely love the understated chic quality of interior designer Michelle Smith‘s New York City apartment. It’s all about the little details like mini art collages, black closet doors, cocktail corner and vintage touches throughout. And a closet dedicated solely to shoes? A must!
Summer is all about ease and so when it comes to my hair during these hot months, the least amount of time spent fussing over it – the better. Enter the hair wrap. It has saved many straight-out-of-the-pool dos, camping-without-a-hairdryer coifs, and just about everything in between. We’ve always been smitten with Stella Jean‘s headwraps, knotted and sticking up so dramatically in bold African wax prints. And the all white headwraps at Giambattista Valli‘s couture presentation this week?! Amazing. With just some fabric, some trusty wire and some very basic sewing skills, I promise you’ll be living in these all season long!
Eugenia Linovich has encapsulated the romance of Russian folk art in her accessories label Masterpeace. In her latest collection, inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace, The Russian designer brilliantly incorporates embroidery, filigree, porcelain, miniature lacquer painting and bead weaving into uniquely modern silhouettes that include corset necklaces, crossbody sashes, brooches, epaulets and headbands. Honestly, stunning.
Four years ago I spent 6 weeks on the road from Oregon to New Mexico in a 76′ Minnie Winnie and have been a huge fan of the “life on the road” lifestyle ever since. So it’s no surprise that I’ve found a soulmate in Foster Huntinton, the author of Home Is Where You Park It. In the summer of 2011 Foster left his job in New York and moved into a VW camper. After 100,000 miles on the road meeting like-minded people, he started a successful Kickstarter campaign to publish his second photo book of various vans and campers. Some people are obsessed with bookshelves, some have a thing for doors . . . Foster and I are in love with mobile homes.
