Veere Grenney at Home in Tangier

Another day, another dreamy Moroccan getaway published by Architectural Digest. This stunning Tangier home belongs to London-based decorator extraordinaire Veere Grenney. I adore Veere’s unmistakably English style, and it’s especially heavenly mixed with Moroccan design. I can’t help but covet the dining room pictured above (now I need a second set of china to hang on my walls!), as well as the home’s blue gingham kitchen, and the treillage room in all its bowood glory. Below, explore more of the gorgeous getaway and find my suggestions on how you can get the look. READ POST

Jacquetta Wheeler’s Moroccan Villa

Architectural Digest just published the Moroccan villa of English supermodel Jacquetta Wheeler and I’m ready to pack my bags for Tangier. Jacquetta’s great-grandfather, the architect Jack Sinclair, built the home in 1926 and named it Dar Sinclair. Today, Jacquetta shares the property with her sister Charlotte. From the vivid pink walls to the ikat pillows throughout, the home pretty much sums up all the reasons why I love Morocco. Below, explore more of Jacquetta’s spectacular getaway and find my suggestions on how you can get the look in your own home. READ POST

Heading to Ireland, Any tips…?

Hi friends! I hope those of you in the U.S. are making the most of your President’s Day Weekend (check out excellent sitewide sales at J.Crew, One Kings LaneWilliams-Sonoma, and Wisteria). Simon and I are headed to Ireland next weekend to visit friends and I wanted to ask if you had any tips on things to see/do/eat/drink in Dublin…? I haven’t been since college and always adore your suggestions. I also may be headed back to Ireland in May to explore the countryside with my mom and little brother, so ideas beyond Dublin are much appreciated as well. Thanks in advance! xx Katie P.S. I’m also popping over to London early next week for 36 hours…stay tuned! READ POST

Kettner’s Townhouse, London

Soho House has unveiled a new property in London, Kettner’s Townhouse, and I’m eager to visit when I’m in England later this month. The 33-bedroom hotel includes a restaurant and Champagne Bar and welcomes Soho House members and non-members alike. Established in 1867 as a French restaurant, the location was a former hangout of icons such as Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill, and Agatha Christie. I love guest rooms’ plush velvet upholstery and bullion fringe. Next time you’re in London’s Soho neighborhood, do drop in. READ POST

NoMad Los Angeles

NoMad Los Angeles opened its doors in California last week and I’m loving the look of the cozy, urban getaway. Decorated by Jacques Garcia (the genius behind The NoMad New York and Hotel Costes in Paris), the new west coast hotel can be found in the heart downtown L.A. The 1920’s building was originally a bank and has a wonderful old world feel. I’m especially coveting the lobby’s sumptuous upholstery with its bold velvets and bouillon fringe. Below, explore more of the gorgeous space. READ POST

Lyford Cay Club by Tom Scheerer

I’ve long admired the interiors of the Lyford Cay Club, but haven’t written about it until now. My in-laws got me interior designer Tom Scheerer’s gorgeous book for my birthday last year and it reminded me of my fondness for the island getaway. Located on a 1,000 acre estate in The Bahamas, the club is Member’s Only so unfortunately, I won’t be staying anytime soon. We can admire Scheerer’s design from afar though—the palm tree murals above are a favorite touch. Below, explore more of the exclusive resort and find my suggestions on how you can get the look in your own home. READ POST
