PALAIS

I’ve mentioned from time to time that I’ve wanted to start a home-focused site, but kept putting it on the back burner. No longer—welcome to PALAIS! Interiors, homewares, books, gardens, and real estate—let me know what you think.

The Last Magazine

Summer’s End

Photographer Cass Bird captures these last days of warm weather in September in this story from the Fall 2017 issue of The Last Magazine. Dutch model Imaan Hammam is splendid.

A Bit of Red

Red shoes have been on my list for a few years now, but I’ve yet to pull the trigger. The hot color for fall, this may be the time I go there. Or, perhaps a belt bag is a good idea…

Joseph sweater, Theory belt bag, Frame frayed jeans, Tod’s loafers. Use code SHOP10 (good until 9/18) at checkout for 10% off these and many other items.

To See

Outlander

The third season of “Outlander”, the Starz drama based on the enormously popular book series by Diana Gabaldon, starts tonight. From the previews, Claire’s wardrobe looks pretty fab. I knew Caitriona Balfe when she modeled and this is the perfect role for her.

Books

David Hicks Scrapbooks

In David Hicks Scrapbooks, Ashley Hicks, son of the renowned British decorator, has pieced together spreads from his father’s scrapbooks and the result is the most complete record of David Hicks’s life and work. The notes, sketches, and photographs are fabulous.

Tory Burch SS18

Penchant for Pendants, cont.

Tory Burch was inspired by the late British interior designer David Hicks for her SS18 collection and these pendants are fantastic.

Vogue Paris

Frayed Days

According to the street style pics from the NYFW SS18 shows, the frayed denim trend is still going strong. Alyson Walsh gave DIY tips and maintenance advice in her white jeans series post.

SS18 Collection

Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein SS18

Gotta love the matching coat, skirt, and shoes at Calvin Klein. The splatter-print was inspired by the horror film Carrie—all part of Raf Simons’s American exploration.

Vogue Italia

Roma!

This September Vogue Italia story by Inez & Vinoodh is so chic I’m running all of the images, something I rarely do. Othilia Simon above is currently one of my favorite models—she looks like a grownup.  Alex White’s styling is spot-on, as usual.

The Deneuve Updo

An easy way to get Catherine Deneuve’s famous updo is a  black velvet clip-on bow. Love this one by Jennifer Behr.
