We’ve been slowly but surely sprucing up our home thanks to design expert Anna Burke of Anna Burke Interiors (aka, she who makes everything chicer and more organized). Right now, we’re focusing on our bookshelf. It makes such a big statement when done well, but can be tricky to pull off without a styling strategy. Fret not, that’s where we (and by we, we mean… read more »

In honor of the first day of autumn (gah!), we asked the New Yorker to share the ways in… read more »
....because let’s be honest, decorating with color is tricky. Does this red go with that blue? Is this totally cool rug going to tie the room together or make everything look wonky?

The bachelor pad is going through a bit of a rethink: It’s no longer just a place to crash, but also a space in which to luxuriate, relax and entertain.

...because, in my apartment, I have an old, wooden end table upon which it shall perfectly perch.

The deep, sultry colors mirror those I imagine… read more »
