Artwork is and always has been a big component of my life. Art certainly functions as a pillar of interior design. On rainy days, there is nothing that I enjoy more than going to a museum and getting lost in the artwork. I want my little babe to have the same love for art and […]

So before you read any further, let me be the first to say that parenting is hard fucking work and it doesn’t hurt to pat ourselves on our own backs from time to time. So this post is that for me. Not long after I gave birth to Cami someone told me “If baby is […]

This is my favorite round-up so far. It includes some of my absolute favorite items- items that I truly deem as being essential. Just seeing this list gets me excited. Some of the items are really fun, whereas others are practical and delightful. Enjoy! #1: Peanut Imagine a Tender-like app for mamas & babies to […]

I don’t know if something shifts in us biologically that makes us want to be tidier in the springtime, but I am feeling it! I am a mother of a little dragon and so it is exceptionally challenging to do an entire home deep clean while also caring for her. However, there are at least […]

I was pretty uneducated design-wise about what to expect after having a baby. In our living room we had an exceptionally light, brindle cowhide, a lucite French commode that was easily scratched (and cost us well over $1,300), some vintage blanc de chine chinoiserie sculptures, and other things that were certainly not appropriate for a […]

I’ve suggested many times that she have some of her favorite inherited heirlooms updated, like her mother’s moss-colored, crushed velvet wingback, but she can’t find the heart […]

When I found out that I was pregnant with Baby Jup I cried for weeks, while frequently wondering “Who approved this?!”. Aside from the sheer shock, I was extremely overwhelmed with having to relocate from Hawaii to New York for my new job. Most of the time I felt as if I was barely keeping […]

This postpartum recipe is crazy easy to make and can be frozen months in advance. I was about 8 ½ months pregnant when I briefly considered preparing a few dishes to freeze for the certain chaos that comes after delivery. The idea of preparing food wasn’t urgent at all to me. When Camille finally made […]

Years ago, when Jo & I moved into our first apartment in New York, I spent MONTHS trying out paint colors in the living room. I wanted a light gray, but I felt like I couldn’t find the one. Jo was losing it because I’d repainted the living room FOUR times before I could truly […]
