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.

Katherine Ross Founder of Wear LACMA

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.

A new Tabletop line and pop-up at Bergdorf Goodman

La Double J.

J.J. Martin, founder of the fab online shop La Double J, has been a busy bee recently with a newly launched tabletop line and an upcoming pop-up shop in Bergdorf Goodman. I look forward to catching up with my dear friend when she’s in NYC later this month.

On My Mind

April To-Do List

Top of my April to-do list is the Irving Penn exhibition at the Met. I worked with Mr. Penn often when I was at Vogue, an honor to say the least. The Whitney Biennial is up, but with spring break, I have yet to go. Date night drinks at the recently opened Whitby Hotel sounds fun. And readying the garden (just herbs this year) and tucking into Elizabeth Strout’s new book, which will be released April 25, are also on my list.

The California Issue

Holiday N° 379

Issue N° 379 of Holiday, which is all about California, is on newsstands. I can’t wait to see the stories by Inez and Vinoodh and Lachlan Bailey, they look amazing.

The map in the English architect-decorator Ben Pentreath’s London home made me think of a map of Paris that I waffled on a few years ago.
