Commute home tonight included a stop in the most beautiful bookstore in New York. Picked up a copy of YSL The Scandal Collection 1971 and a photo of the zodiac ceiling of my dreams. #albertine #newyork
Tuesday design inspo courtesy of the green Goan farmhouse of my dreams in @elledecorindia new issue. Design: @dean.dcruz 📷: Fabian Chareau #goa #india
God I love my commute home. #centralpark #newyork
Leftovers from the weekend and the perfect rainy day cure: Apple pie with a bacon lattice crust from @carissas_breads. #easthampton
Ducked into the Neue Galerie at lunch and got yelled at for sneaking this pic. But let’s face it: it’s an Adele and Sabarsky kind of day. #newyork
Design inspo for the week ahead courtesy of @johannaortizofficial in the September issue. The faux-​bamboo chairs are from the 1960s, the rattan trunk is vintage, and the side table and ceramic vase are from Morocco. Colombian artist Eloin Rivera painted the mural. @elledecor 📷: @ricardolabougle #cartagena
Perfect pop-colored pool in the stunning home of @judiroaman @carlanicolaschammas , the place where we originally discovered the Hamptons and that later inspired us to own our own cottage out here (a few doors down). In other words, it would never be summer without being here. #family #easthampton
How Sunday lunch @judiroaman ends: with @carissas_breads blueberry pie topped with meringue on a thyme wheat all butter crust and hand painted with organic edible watercolor and gold leaf and pearls. #amanjudi #easthampton
Bunches of wildflowers at Round Swamp Farm, Sunday, 8am. #oldhabitsdiehard #amanjudi #easthampton
Blue and white bedsides forever. @cynthiaefrank @johannaortizofficial @elledecor #cartagena
Nothing better than a gold Persian paisley tablecloth and Miriam’s tadig. Ate the whole tadig tonight. And I filmed it (much to her chagrin. In stories)! #greatneck
Walking into the weekend like fashion designer Johanna Ortiz and her posse of beauties in the salon of her 16th-century Spanish Colonial villa in Cartagena, Colombia. She and her colleagues—from left, Johanna Isaac, Paola Ortiz, Catalina Londono, and Maria Isabel Guzman—are all wearing dresses and kimonos from Ortiz’s collection. Not much more to say to this than: Olé! Brilliant styling: @cynthiaefrank 📷: @ricardolabougle @elledecor #cartagena
This year I’ve struck up a friendship with my favorite South African fabric purveyor Bernie de Le Cuona. Her work and palette evoke dusk in the African bush by way of LA and Kashmir. While she was in my office a few months ago, I asked Bernie to pick her favorite fashion designer so we could make a piece using her signature cloths for the back page of our fashion issue. She didn’t skip a beat: the house of Oscar De La Renta was the only choice. As @vwlawrence writes, @delecuona ’s cotton-blend Liquid Teal fabric has the sheen of, as Bernie puts it, “an exotic cat”—a quality that inspired Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, the creative directors of @oscardelarenta , to make this dramatic cape-back strapless gown. At once streamlined and plush, restrained and decadent, their dress glows like a moonstone, becoming more complex with each flicker of its wearer’s movement. Thank you @aspoonfulofbenjamin @tokibunbun @fernandogarciam1205 @oscardelarenta @rebeccagkrantz for making this happen. And to beautiful Ange-Marie Moutambou, @nataliamejia.beauty and @philipfriedman for the stunning picture. As always, the dress will be auctioned off for the charity of the makers’ choice at the end of the year. @elledecor #notforsale
When they’re not influencing how we dress, @reemacra , @dvf @therealdvf , @tamaramellon , Carolina Herrera, @karllagerfeld @eliesaabworld @lisaperrystyle have inspired us with their personal spaces. Here, some of our favorite homes from the ED archives. Let’s call it ED #TBT . @elledecor #greatideas #fromthearchives
One of the amazing things about helming @elledecor in the US is the ability to tap into the vast ELLE Decor and ELLE Deco global network that spans 25 international editions and 5 territories. No other design brand in the world can lay claim to that. For my incredibly inspiring co-editors and I, Thinking Locally and Acting Globally (coincidentally a phrase I first heard in Qatar by @almayassabnthamad that changed the way I thought about everything from then on) is built into ED’s very DNA. On a more practical level, Great Ideas (a column which appears in the US Edition each month) serves as a gateway to the network, not unlike this turquoise enfilade at the Mysore Palace from @elledecorindia. The result, dear reader, is that as design happens everywhere, you are at the center of everywhere design happens. #elledecor #elledeco
The best (and most ironic) part of chic, slim, and fashionable @thealinacho ’s dining room is that it’s painted in a shade of @benjaminmoore ’s called “Little Piggy”. The chairs are by @knoll , and the tablecloth is custom made from a @raphlauren fabric. The photograph is by @marilynminter , and the plates are by @fornasettiofficial. #interiors #design #newyork #🐷
