Tory Burch’s New York Office

Today I thought I’d share an oldie but goodie I recently rediscovered online, the New York office of fashion icon Tory Burch. Published in January by Architectural Digest, the space was decorated by interior designer Daniel Romualdez who also helped Tory complete her New York apartment and Southampton home.

The space feels more like a personal home than a workplace which surely makes it more enjoyable to be in the office.

Below, explore more of the opulent home. READ POST

IVF Heartbreak, Take Four

IVF is, as I’ve mentioned before, far more affordable in Denmark than it is in the States, so though we’d previously planned to take a longer break, while we’re living abroad I wanted to keep the ball rolling. So, last month we did a fresh round of IVF (the shots, the acupuncture, the whole shebang). READ POST
