Locally Grown

Gray kitchen cabinets, white subway tile with dark grout, chevron floors, open shelving, and black accents . . . there several similar characteristics in restauranteur Ali Cayne‘s West Village home with my own, where we are finally wrapping up our 7 month remodel. The renovation process has been demanding but the end is near and the exciting part of designing the interiors has begun. Seeing this charming pad has motivated me to kick into high gear for that final push!

Valentino Spring 2014

Valentino has taken bohemian extravagance to a mind blowing level. Inspired by Maria Callas and the Roman Opera, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli produced a collection that was beautiful, grand, and romantic – but honestly, did we expect anything less? Rich fabrics and exquisite craftsmanship was obvious in the folkloric motifs, lavish embroidery, and elaborate lace work. Colors popped against a black palette, embroidered jackets were worn over dresses, and gowns were accessorized with astrological jewelry and scarab adorned flat sandals. What it not to love here?!
