To See at MoMA

‘Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends’

This spring there’s been an abundance of must-see exhibitions in NYC. And yet, when the announcement for the opening this Sunday of Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends at MoMA hit my inbox, I got very excited—this is right up my alley.

Chris Cornell

Chris Cornell, lead singer of 90s grunge band Soundgarden, died today and my heart is truly broken. I’ve been listening to the track “Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart” from his 2015 album Higher Truth—it’s just so beautiful.

Books

Spring Reading Trifecta

Three of my favorite authors have new books out—a spring reading trifecta.

Anything Is Possible by Elizabeth Strout, Saints for All Occasions by J. Courtney Sullivan, Trajectory by Richard Russo.

Mother's Day

Breaking The Rules

I have a “homemade gifts only” policy for my birthday and Mother’s Day, however, this year my daughter surprised me with peonies and a book by one of my favorite chefs. They are such thoughtful presents, I’m giving her a pass on breaking the rules.

Happy Mother’s Day!

To Do

Rainy Weekend Ahead

Sadly, the Mother’s Day weekend forecast is cool and rainy. The good news is that Eleanor Coppola’s “Paris Can Wait”, starring the fab Diane Lane, just opened, and my one-time Vogue colleague Plum Sykes’ new book “Party Girls Die In Pearls” is out.

My Music

Sounds of Spring

It’s been some time since I’ve put up a music post—here’s what I’m listening to right now. Glass Animals’ sophomore album, How to be a Human Being, is fantastic—my daughter saw them at Coachella and said they were amazing.  And I turn up Missio’s title song “Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea” every time it comes on.

To Watch

Twin Peaks

Anyone else excited for the limited series revival of Twin Peaks? The continuation of the 90s cult TV show by legendary director David Lynch will be on Showtime in May—can’t wait!

Espalier x Container Garden

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this image in AD—it’s from a story on Aerin Lauder’s family home in Palm Beach. I do a ton of container gardening and I’m also an espalier fanatic. This vintage cast-iron plant holder is right up my alley.

We will be in L.A. mid-June for our daughter’s graduation and, since we are out there often, I’m always looking for fun new things to do. Katherine Ross, founder of Wear LACMA and cousin of Amanda Ross, gave this fab list to Porter.

A Pretty Plate

I’m aware that I’ve already posted on the Aerin x Williams Sonoma tabletop collaboration but, I’m so smitten with this simple scallop-edged plate, I had to put it up.
