My Top Picks: Chairish

One of my favorite things in the world is scouring the globe (including the internet!) for vintage furniture and home decor. Today, I thought it would be fun to share my top picks from one of the best online sources for vintage home goods, Chairish. Each day, hundreds of items are added to their site which is a well-curated online flea market of sorts. My tip is to search for things you love (for example, chinoiserie, blue and white, or Staffordshire…) and then filter the results by “most favorited.” This way you’ll instantly see the most popular products (which  are often the best and tend to sell quickly). Another favorite feature of Chairish? You can make an offer to the vendor and often score your coveted item for less than the asking price. Explore some of my current favorite Chairish finds below.

A Cotswolds Bedroom by Octavia Dickinson

This Cotswolds farmhouse belonging to florist and author Willow Crossley immediately stole my heart. Designed by British decorator Octavia Dickinson, the darling bedroom was transformed thanks to a collaboration between House & Garden UK and Farrow & Ball paints (Octavia and Willow settled on the gorgeous ‘Stone Blue’). The result is charming to say the least. I’m crazy about the bed canopy in Soane’s ‘Paisley Parrot’ fabric, the timeless seagrass carpeting, and the scalloped Matilda Goad lampshade. Needless to say, my English country house dreams continue! READ POST

Style Icon: Kenneth Jay Lane

I was saddened to learn that famed costume jeweler, Kenneth Jay Lane, had passed away this summer. I’ve always admired the designer’s joie de vivre and years ago, was fortunate enough to see him interviewed by his stylish friend Judith Price at the 92nd Street Y. From Jacqueline Kennedy to Princess Diana, Lane’s affordable and chic designs have been worn by countless influential women around the globe. I’ll treasure my signed copy of his book for years to come. Below, explore images of Kenneth’s handsome New York apartment (I’m obsessed with his collection of Orientalist paintings) and some of my all-time favorite Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry designs. READ POST
