Style Book - British Colonial Style

British Colonial style developed hundreds of years ago - when pirates roamed the seas, and the British Empire stretched across the globe.

Characterized by rich, dark woods and a tropical simplicity, British Colonial style has a timeless appeal that still feels fresh today. An eclectic mix of British pieces and island style creates a feeling of effortless elegance.

Restaurant Radar

My dear friend Rachel (who is getting married next month!) recently hosted her bridal shower at Saxon and Parole, a beautiful space created by one of the most innovative and exciting design firms out there right now, AvroKO

Saxon and Parole feels elegant, yet relaxed - layered with texture and rich details. White-washed brick, reclaimed wood, cane-backed chairs, and buttery chocolate leather blend seamlessly to create a warm and inviting dining experience. The perfect setting for any special occasion!

Dream Room of the Month

New York got hit with a blizzard this weekend, and we are knee-deep into winter. The days have been cold and dreary, and summer seems impossibly far away. So to raise my spirits, I’ve been dreaming about warm and wonderful places…

This month’s dream room is inspired by an incredible Mexican villa designed by Kara Mann. I love the relaxed elegance of the space - and the pops of color add just the right amount of punch to the neutral, natural palette.
