Welcome to my home! My baby-proof styling and nursery

Last month, I had the opportunity to share some scenes from my home with the wonderful Camille Styles. Photographed by Maria del Rio, we showed a few areas that are fully styled, and yet fully kid-friendly. I want my daughter to fit into my life, rather than the other way around — in the best possible way. (Keeping [...]

Gift it: Glass straws

I love straws, but I hate throwing them away. Last month at the Heath sale I bought two of these (The Bends, no relation to Radiohead), and I never would have considered GLASS for my permanent straws, but Glass Dharma has a lifetime guarantee against breakage. Amazing! The straight ones start at $7.50, and the [...]

Recycled wine bottle tumblers

They’re made by BottleHood in San Diego, who gets their bottles from shops and restaurants in their neighborhood. (They [...]

Inspired by: Geometry + culture

I’m all about geometric designs right now. A year ago I was assigned a story for a local magazine about a local rug shop that specializes in semi-antique hand-knotted rugs, like this: I learned that hand-knotted rugs are so special because they don’t have a pile, which means they don’t wear down like traditional synthetic [...]

Mixing Old and New: Hudson Hotel NY

My brother is planning a trip to NYC and just sent me a link to the Hudson Hotel in Hell’s Kitchen. I checked out the “visual tour,” and the interiors are blowing me away. Designed by Phillippe Starck and Ian Schrager and opened back in 2000, the Hudson’s look accomplishes exactly the pairing of ornamented [...]
