I’m a huge fan of Chic Comfort and I’m loving the former Tory Burch Designer, Stephanie Von Watzdorf. The world traveler launched her new Figue collection last fall, inspired by the fig fruit she so often ate throughout her childhood in Italy. While her designs and style are definitely luxe and made for a champagne wallet, her edge is timeless. Although a native New Yorker, as a daughter of a Russian Ballerina mother and German/French father, she has been surrounded by a worldly view and desire to travel her entire life. Her cultural influence has left her collection with an independent imagination and rich, bohemian style.
So often our clothes wear us or are determined by the NOW factor. Von Watzdorf’s pieces are in essence, an extension of her lifestyle. She owns the look and incorporates the beauty of her experiences in her tunics and military coats. From Marrakech to Manhattan, the design translates to all walks of life.

King of the Mountain by Carol Jackman
Here’s how I’m feeling this Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and some of you are enjoying the holiday today. Here are a few lovely works to share.
Wall mounted glass pebbles by Christopher Jeffries
These pebbles are a calm start to the day. I love the creative way to display glass works.
Guidecca by Murray Dessner, 2007, acrylic on canvas
One of my passions is huge abstract works. They give me peace and evoke challenges simultaneously.
Tall Cake on Pedestal by Tina Ingraham 2012, oil on linen mounted on wood
Would really love to eat this entire cake for breakfast/brunch.

When I tell people what my wardrobe staples are, I get many looks and sanity is not one of them. My staples are not a nude skirt and a pop of color. Change up your staples, take a piece with a little flare and incorporate it for more than just a special occasion.

The rush of holidays is finally over and with all the parties, family, friends and fun, it’s time to slow down and look through the books I have long been coveting. Here are some of the reads I’ve added to my collection this season.
Books: Evidence Architects// The Color Revolution // Dazzling Design // The Iconic Interior // Kelly Wearstler Rhapsody
I also updated my nook with a mix of pieces vintage and mod. It’s easy to change small spaces with simple updates. If you get overwhelmed tackle a corner or hall way. It will give you a fresh start for the new year.
Where I got this look: Table from To Bee Seated // Chair – Vintage find // Pillow -mod find from vintage shop // Icelandic viking sheepskin rug -found from a Artisan in the Blue Ridge Mountains // Stella Floor Lamp – Urban Outfitters
No Brand 70’s throwback// Jonathan Adler Multi color Bargello // Jonathan Adler Jamaica Lane // @ pillow //Trina Turk Geo Yellow and Gray // Blissliving Jack multi pillow // Natori Lotus Temple
