All of these color of the year suggestions might inspire you to go whole hog and wash your walls in coral or rust or denim hues. Or they may have the opposite effect, and keep you married to neutral tones that are comfortable and easy to live with. Read all about the various “it” colors for 2019 and how to use them in and around the home. It’s my latest story for the Boston Globe. Link in profile.

Foyer big enough to fit a surfboard ✅
Surfboard that matches the art ✅
Space with lots of potential for more of these very good things ✅

New digs, new details. I invested in a gorgeous solo roll of wallpaper from @anthropologie and put it to use on the fronts of a few doors throughout the apartment. The first image is of the foyer coat closet, and the doors in my bedroom got the treatment, too. It’s not peel and stick—-this roll was made with SureStrip technology, which means the adhesive is already applied to the back and just needs to be activated by water. It was super simple to do this DIY, and when I’m ready for a change it peels off easily with no mess (I tested it ahead of time to make sure). The last picture in the series is the before pic of my two bedroom closet doors... it felt way too boring to keep those doors looking plain in a room that gets that much gorgeous light. There’s still a lot to do around here (hang art! unpack the living room!), but dressing these doors felt like a good start.❤️

Just a quick + casual PSA: Theo and I are in today’s @nypost as part of a larger story on Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Good stuff...happy to be asked to contribute some thoughts.

Laundry rooms are not what they used to be. More and more, they’re becoming stylish extensions of the home that, for some, also serve as a quiet place that smells nice (duh) while providing escape and comfort.
Read all about the joy of a great laundry room in my latest story for The Sunday Boston Globe.

As I wrote my latest story for the @bostonglobe, which ran this past Sunday, I was just embarking on a new phase of purging and packing for a new home. It’s tedious and slow and quite exhausting mostly in that it makes you face and evaluate the minutiae of your life, piece by piece. As I told a friend, it feels so freeing to let go. I just want to hold onto a few sentimental things and start over with much less than before. Read all about how to live with not too much, not too little, but just enough. 👉🏻 Link in profile.

To the many generous souls that have opened their homes, hearts, arms and ears to me this past year, you’ve quite possibly saved my life. Today may be my birthday, but because of you, this swatch of time has become an indelible and rather incredible blur of goodness and support, and a push closer to balance and opportunity. Sometimes, facing the ocean of unknowns is scary enough to paralyze, but “if there’s one thing I’ve realized” (h/t @daniellepoletto), having the sustenance of meaningful relationships and unwavering love can buoy and even propel you if you let it. Happy birthday to me. And thank you to you. #uknowwhouare #letssurf
I went down a serious style wormhole this morning when I popped into the local @farrowandball showroom to get a private tutorial on their selection of 132 richly pigmented paint colours, now available on the @anthropologie web site (yah!). It was such a dream visit and I learned so much from their brilliant experts @aubergine925 & @brendaleentjes. Thank you for your time and the delish dish on all things colorful. #farrowandballparamus #anthropologie #painting #paintmixing #interiors #interiorstyling #interiordesigner
Tried surfing for the first time and loved surfing. Totally puked in the water but also got up on the board a few times and even rode a party wave. So I’d call that a successful first attempt for this newbie. 🏄♀️
