IVF Heartbreak, Take Seven + A Moroccan Escape

Earlier this month we found out that our seventh and final IVF attempt had failed. There were lots of tears and a great deal of heartbreak, but also, in so many ways, just a sense of relief. I felt relieved to finally be able to end the hormones and get my health (and in so many ways, life) back. The past two years have been devastating for us—it is time to close the door and start a new chapter. We are reading up on adoption and are hopeful it’s in our future. Being that I’m American, Simon is British, and we live in Denmark, the adoption process may be extra complicated for us, but we will find a way. Tomorrow, we’re off to Marrakech for five days of much needed relaxation. Morocco is such a magical place and I can’t wait to get lost with the man I love (Simon, you really are the most wonderful thing) in one of my favorite cities. I’ve also booked a February trip to India with my dear friend Jane (and have my January trip to Japan), so despite not being pregnant, I have many things to look forward to and be grateful for. Thank you, sweet readers, for all your support throughout our infertility journey. I know in my heart Simon and I will grow our family someday and it will be everything we ever could have imagined. Somehow, this new path seems it was meant to be. Love, Katie READ POST

A Neutral Living Room by Alyssa Kapito

Are there any minimalists among you, dear readers? Though I am certainly of the maximalist order, I can still appreciate this stunning living room designed by Alyssa Kapito for the 2017 Holiday House in New York. Despite its seemingly simple neutral palette, Alyssa added tons of interest to the space by playing with materials, shapes, and textures. I especially love the plaster chandelier and the large scale abstract by William McClure. The space is proof that sometimes, less really is more. Below, explore the chic space further and find my suggestions to get a similar style in your own home. READ POST

Jenna Lyons’s Chic Soho Loft

Today’s our lucky day! T Magazine has just revealed the newly redesigned SoHo home of Jenna Lyons (style icon and the former president of J.Crew). The spacious 3,500-square-foot loft is in a 19th-century cast-iron building and is brimming with Jenna’s impossibly cool, one-of-a-kind style. I love all the colorful details from her little malachite boxes to bold pink sectional. Below, explore more of the stunning space which was decorated with the help of Gray Davis of design firm Meyer Davis. READ POST
