How stunning are these photos of Loeffler Randall shoe designer Jessie Randall…? Her pink peony-filled Brooklyn home is lovely to say the least. I can’t help but be envious of her strut dining table, marble mantle, and fluffy Monogolian fur pillows. Oh and her cute striped overalls? They’re from Forever 21. Shop the look below.
We just added three new pieces by Brooklyn artist Danielle Kroll to the Buddy Editions boutique and I wanted you to be the first to know. Her other Buddy prints (especially Manhattan Matches and City Living!) have been selling like hot cakes so I was thrilled when she agreed to create more. I’m thinking I need the new cheetah print for my Chicago apartment and can’t help but wish I had a nursery to decorate (hopefully my boyfriend isn’t reading…) because those elephants are all kinds of darling. Wouldn’t the colorful coral sea life be perfect for anyone that lives by or loves the beach? Prints begin at only $50, are exclusive to Buddy, and are limited-edition! Shop the new arrivals here.
If you love London’s Sir John Soane’s Museum as much as I do, you’ll be thrilled to learn they’ve recently expanded. The second floor private apartment of the famous English architect is now on public view for the first time in 160 years. I can’t wait to see his blue and white china collection in person. Also on view is the special exhibition, “Inspired by Soane: I Found This And Thought of You,” which features postcards illustrated by prominent creatives such as Manolo Blahnik, Zaha Hadid, and Christopher Bailey of Burberry. That’s Bailey’s take on the museum above…charming, indeed. Book your tour of the Sir John Soane’s private residence here.

I’ve loved following Anna Spiro’s instagram as she decorates Halcyon House, a new boutique hotel on Australia’s Carbarita Beach. The bold interiors feature Anna’s trademark pattern play with colorful textiles, wallpapers, and floor tiles. The coastal inspired gallery walls are a highlight and feature many pieces by Wayne Pate, an immensely talented Brooklyn artist I have long adored. Anna and I met ages ago in New York and her projects have delighted me for years. Not only is she brilliant when it comes to design, she also happens to be one of the kindest, most genuine women I’ve had the good fortune to meet from the blogosphere. Good people doing good work…doesn’t get much better than that. Book a dreamy stay at Halcyon House here.
