What girl isn't inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg, I know I completely am! Being an entrepreneurial woman is powerful. I find myself always looking to women like her to keep me motivated and inspired. My favorite thing to do with people I admire is to see where they live. It gives you a glimpse into their true personality. It's just a small obsession of mine.
Here architectural digest takes us inside her NYC playhouse. I love it...read more!

This pretty little watercolor picture just says everything about domestic bliss that I can't put into words. Inslee Haynes...the latest artist to grab my affections is making her waves around the blog world and now she has nabbed herself a spot on one of my favorite sites ever, Joss and Main. Those clever people are hosting a huge SALE of her fabulous work today. If I were you, I would click here and get in on it before it all sells out. I know I'm getting my hands on a piece of her work!

My heart broke a bit yesterday morning when I heard the news about Elizabeth Taylor going to God yesterday. Kind of a depressing moment, as she was a huge icon in my life. I watched many moments on tv with montages of her life. It got my trying to imagine the interiors she must have experienced. The decor in her homes must have been magnanimous and the set decor had to be ridiculously wild. So, I wanted to take a moment today and remember her most beautiful moments of domestic bliss...

I have such an incredibly huge girl crush on Tory Burch. Her style is so good and she always inspires me with her addiction and passion for orange. She makes orange oh so cool. Her spread in this month's Instyle Mag looks great. I have seen her hotel digs photographed before, but I don't know why every time I see it, its like the first time all over again. The use of color is just spot on! Jewel tones on the walls. Yummy! Have you seen her amazing stores? The decor is sensational.

This beautiful fashionista opened her home to SHOP til you drop mag. Rachel Gilbert's NYC apartment is super girlie and totally glam. I love these photographs from her spread in the Feb issue. It just goes to show how the little things are what make a home blissful. JOY letters by the window, lovely flowers, black and white photographs of you and your friends, artwork you adore and of course fabulous ghost chairs in the dining room. Too cute.

Wish you could have Diane Von Furstenberg over for dinner? Well, now you can. This mega-mogul fashion designer has come full force onto the interior design scene. Like other fashion designers, Diane made waves tricking out a fabulous London hotel and now has stepped it up like Kelly Wearstler and created a line of dishware that is fun + oh so fabulous.
Turquoise and black leopard print for my tabletop? Yes please!

I've been so busy keeping up with this NYC energy I have barely gotten around to my favorite decor glossies. I know I'm a little late but I am absolutely blown away by this winter's issue of Veranda. I truly believe that its getting much much better since Dara came along. I loved the Jennifer Lopez spread and the Hutton Wilkinson entertaining article was just gorgeous.
Interior Decorating is an art form that runs strong in my family so I also wanted to take a moment to appreciate the decorating style of my aunt, Susan Gutfreund, and her mentor/friend/decorator Henri Samuel and their beautiful spread. Together, they have created some of the most beautiful decor I have ever laid eyes on. This time they have decked out her home in Paris with panache (and a bit of soft glamour) and in this January/February 2011 issue, Veranda made note of it.
It is love at first sight as you gaze your eyes upon the entryway's grandeur staircase. The magnificence doesn't stop there... in the main rooms, the dreamy walls are so soft and romantic, the perfect setting for the characteristically French detailed moldings. I love how the soft color palate allows the ornate and dramatic light fixtures to steal the show and the luscious greenery adorns the room with a perfect pop of color.
I love the mix of muted reds and simple dashes of blue.

Aren't we all dying to know? Thanks to my friend over at Sketch42 I found out that Kelly Wearstler has a new blog and the news is spreading fast.
MyVibeMyLife is a collection of the beautiful images she takes in her daily life. I love her first post on how she puts together her ideas. She is so clever, she uses "vibe trays" to organize her thoughts. Brilliant. Check out her new fabulous + fun website!

She has always been a favorite of mine. I've always loved her home decor and writing skills. Her mom is Nina Campbell, a fabulously famous decorator. She's adorable too!
Check out Rita in the premiere issue of matchbook! It came out today and it's too cute for words.

As I prepare and pack for New York I am oh so inspired by the fashion! LA fashion is fantastic but it will be a nice change to layer up for cooler weather. As you can probably imagine, I want to make sure I wear the perfect nyc outfit everyday...gotta be a stylish decorista!

Lately the belted trouser look has captured my heart, throw in gold chains and a loose blouse...lovely.
scarves, capes, tights and leopard...
oh and of course, shimmer and fur!

NYC socialite + fashionista Lauren Santo Domingo shows us how its done...Her manhattan apartment is equal parts woodsy, vintage inspired and glamorous. She has the hottest look for 2011 in decor and she knows it. In her recent article on Vogue.com she coaches us how she created her fabulous spread, one amazing item at a time.
Her beautiful office space is killer and oh so office space of the day worthy.
Feast your eyes upon her collection of shoes and with closet doors like those, who wouldn't kill for this personal space? I myself am also crazy about that inlaid bone chair.
as usual, organized sparkling gems call out to me...
I love that she used this retro vibe wallpaper with fantastic art prints and a collection of subdued graphic pillows...very, very chic. as every manhattan socialite should be.
