    Last Minute Mother’s Day Gifts

    For Mother’s Day Gifts I aim for something more meaningful than expensive, fun rather than serious… Our Course Collection – with its signature stripe – was inspired by the fillies race at Ascot.  In England, racehorses wear custom over-girths, in various signature stripes of their barn colors.  I was so inspired by the gorgeous fillies, ready for their […]

    Grant Thatcher launched his LUXE City Guides in 2001, and since then, he’s expanded to 30 pocketbook-sized titles filled with “smart stuff for busy people.” Thatcher’s latest project, Little LUXE Guides – on how to “go glam with the fam” – is perfect for those modern families that can’t imagine not bringing the littles along… Little LUXE Hong […]

  • Coordinated Luggage Set

    Coordinated Luggage Set

    A coordinated luggage set has been a tradition in my family for years.  Upon graduation from high school, one gets to put away the mishmash of nylon and vinyl duffles that had heretofore accompanied us and graduate to a set of T Anthony luggage.  It was always a bit of a skirmish to decide who […]

    Modern FarmHouse Style

  • Valentines Gifts for the Equestrian

    Valentines Gifts for the Equestrian

    I love the idea of deferring some of the holiday gifting to Valentine’s Day.  There is a point of diminishing returns on Christmas morning.  Especially if you have young kids in the house, you stay pretty busy, helping them open, appreciate and get working all of their new toys… And, let’s face it, the whole […]

  • Winter Getaway

    Winter Getaway

    I love the idea of a winter grownup getaway in early Feb, when its at its coldest and bleakest here and things have slowed to a dull roar.  Maybe I should institute an annual Valentine’s trip we give each other?  Wondering if anyone has suggestions for great warm Feb trips with a direct flight from […]

  • Country Chic January Essentials

    Country Chic January Essentials

    The snow is falling outside and while, by day, we go a thousand sporty directions… hockey and basketball in the am, the barn for me mid-afternoon and the ski hill for everyone else, I really love reconvening in front of the fire at night…. Utanum is an Icelandic company producing very chic minimalist clothing in […]
