If you follow me on instagram then you already know that Alfred and I are making the move to Brooklyn! Today is our last day uptown and it’s bittersweet to be certain. While I’ve loved the proximity to Central Park and the museums, I’m over the moon to be headed to Williamsburg with its great boutiques, waterfront, and restaurants. We’re moving in with my boyfriend so it will be most interesting transitioning his mid-century modern bachelor pad into our little home. The moving van arrives at 8am! Wish us luck!
Elle Decor recently shared great table styling tips from decorator Ryan Korban. I loved the glimpses of his impossibly chic apartment (he’s moved in a more minimalist direction…) and am eagerly awaiting the debut of his first book, Luxury Redefined. It hits stores April 15th and can be pre-ordered here.

What fun to find Amanda Brooks and her darling family on The Selby this morning. The glimpses of the English countryside have me longing for a trip across the pond. The family calls Oxfordshire, England home and certainly seems to be making the most of their country life. See the full story here.
One of my Christmas presents was a weekend upstate (“did you hashtag best boyfriend ever?”) so this evening I’m packing my bags for Woodstock, New York. We’re driving up in the morning and I can’t wait to explore all the cozy towns along the Hudson. It’s going to be mighty chilly, but I figure it’s nothing a little wine by the fire can’t cure! Let me know if you have any recs of things to do/see/eat in the area. I’m especially looking forward to dinner at Cucina – I’ve heard rave reviews. Above is a rental a bit further upstate — isn’t it a stunner? Let the country house dreams commence!
