WE HAVE BEEN WORKING on an enormous project that had hoped could tell you about today, but there have been a few delays, and so, at this moment, a glimpse into a beautiful understated loft in Manhattan . . .

{décor inspiration : a manhattan loft, interior design by ochre}

British interior design firm, Ochre, was hirted to renovate the home to accommodate a family. The Crosby Street apartment is one of the classic lofts built in the New York neighborhood of Soho in the 1860's, with wonderfully high ceilings and large windows facing west. The interior designer chose a palette of soft greys and earth tones to create warmth and comfort amidst the streams of natural light . . .

HAVE BEEN TRAIPSING around in the insanely chic jewelry by Christina Jervey for the past few weeks, ever since it arrived, in pretty brown boxes tied in red ribbon, on Valentine's Day, and am particularly enamoured with a gold cuff, dramatic and a little rock 'n refined, and a tiny starfish pendant, utterly lovely and a little delicate, and reminds me of the Scottish coast . . .

Based in South Carolina, the designer's work is inspired by nature, with a love and appreciation for simplicity.

Christina Jervey took metalsmithing classes at Penland School of Crafts, followed by an apprenticeship with an accomplished goldsmith, and since, has manufactured and designed jewelry for several designers in the Charleston area.

After years of working in design & production, Christina launched her own line of jewelry, working in sterling silver, 14k gold, & 14k gold plate, creating all the jewelry herself, in her studio in Mt Pleasant, South Carolina.

HAPPENED UPON THIS SPACE by accident late last week, and fell in love with the simple, personal details that elevate this condo from its cookie-cutter beginnings -- the chandelier and gilded looking glass behind the sofa, gold faucet and glass hardware on the kitchen cupboards, and best of all, the mirrored insert on the breakfast bar . . .

LUXURIOUS LAYERS are what characterise Olivia Palermo's usual style, and for AW 2014 fashion week, we were once again left stunned, for she seems to wear the most impeccable ensemble for any occasion. Whether it's a jacket paired with an intricate jacquard skirt and over-the-knee-black boots for the Nina Ricci fashion show, or a vest worn over a golden sweater, she somehow manages to stay warm, yet attain a combination of edginess and elegance perfect for the last weeks of winter.

TODAY'S INTERIOR INSPIRATION comes from the Brooklyn apartment of interior designer Adam Charlap Hyman. The landlord had stripped away all details and ornamentation from the small two room parlor in a brownstone in Carroll Gardens, which left a blank canvas for the interior designer's creativity to run wild. Warm pink walls and chartreuse drapery, books and artwork and even a wood fireplace that the designer brought in and painted to look like marble, all contribute to a storybook space filled with character. “Every single moment in the house is considered and referential,” Charlap Hyman points out, “Whether it’s a scene from a movie or a spread in an Architectural Digest from 1981 or something I read in a book.”

{fashion inspiration | runway : valentino fall 2014}



VALENTINO WAS THE MOST IMPOSSIBLY PERFECT collection one could ever wish for. The first looks glowed with beautiful simplicity, and shapes—rhombi, circles, clean lines—yet, as the collection progressed, one became engrossed with the intricate layered laces, and the butterflies and birds embellished on emerald green, midnight blue and maroon capes and dresses, all seeming to come right out of a children's fairytale book . . .




. . . soon, the initial geometrical shapes began fusing with trims in a slow dance, eventually amalgamating into semi-sheer chiffon and organza gowns with volume at the bottom and delicacy on top, into creations that could only be meant for grand balls. The result was a velvety, hazy and romantically picturesque collection perfect for fall.

A LITTLE OVERCAST today, which means searching for colour anywhere we can find it -- the bright pink roses from P. on my desk at the office, a dash of red lipstick, and a glimpse, for old time's sake, into Iris Apfel's three-bedroom Manhattan apartment, from the June 2011 issue of Architectural Digest. A maximalist's idea of heaven, there are stone pedestals piled high with art books and Baroque consoles, 19th-century dog portraits and gilded chinoiserie mirrors, antique carvings and costume jewelry, exquisite French chairs and so much colour . . .

BRAZILIAN FORMER VICTORIA'S SECRET model, Izabel Goulart, was recently seen traipsing about Paris in a perfectly chic daytime look of ripped denim, a white tee, and classic trench. Then, for Porter magazine's black tie event, also in Paris, it was a super-sexy gold sequinned gown . . .

HAVE FEATURED THE instagram photographs of Amanda Shadforth from Oracle Fox here before, but it's been a while and she's in Paris, where powdery blossoms flirt with La Tour Eiffel and days are filled with romantically gloomy clouds and patisseries . . .
