A few weekends back I went with my sister & niece to Outstanding in the Field at Lake Meadows Naturals Farm in Ocoee, FL! The idea behind the event was started by Jim Denevan who thought it would be lovely to set up a large, long table on a farm & invite the public to share in amazing, farm-fresh food & wine while enjoying the natural surroundings! After setting the first table in California over 15 years ago, the tour is now nation-wide, with farmers from all over hosting events with the collaboration of local chefs, cheese makers, ranchers, foragers & winemakers! And this event did not disappoint!! The food & wine was absolutely amazing & it was such a relaxing & enjoyable atmosphere, mingling with the local community! And loved seeing all the animals! There were literally ducks waddling around while we enjoyed dinner! So cute!! Definitely recommend signing up to find out when they might be coming to a farm near you!!
You can also check their instagram to see all the beautiful farms they have visited!!
We’re back from a fabulous trip for Housing Works first ever Design on a Dime Miami!! It was such an honor to be one of the 25 designers invited to participate for such a great cause whose proceeds went to the Aids Free USA 2025 Campaign! The event was held in the iconic Moore Building where each designer created a vignette filled with luxury items that could be purchased at discount prices. It took weeks of planning & gathering donations from generous donors, as well as, two long days to set up but we loved how our space turned out!! You can see the full set-up process in the pictures below! A big thanks to: Arte Italica, Bad Dog Editions, B. Pila, Caracole, Currey & Company, E. Lawrence, Ltd., Harlequin, Made Goods, Obeetee, Phillips Collection, Scion, Sanderson, Traditions Linen & Vanguard Furniture! We can’t thank you enough for all your help!!
Back from another amazing trip to NYC!! A few months back we were asked to participate in the Hope Lodge Charity event & decided that would also be a great opportunity to take my entire office up for an extended christmas party! We had the most amazingly delicious meal at Buddakan the first night & then spent the next day setting up for the charity event at the historic Harmonie Club on the upper east side. Each table was to choose a city, state or country as their inspiration for their design & we went with classic Palm Beach! It all came together better than I had ever hoped for thanks to all our amazing contributors! B Floral did a phenomenal job with the floral arrangements & the prints & patterns of the tablecloths, chair covers & dinnerware worked so fabulously with one another! It was such a beautiful event & met so many amazing people! Great job to all the designers involved & a big thank you to the vendors who made our table possible, DeVine Corporation, Kim Seybert, Mottahedeh & Co, Samuel & Sons & last but definitely not least, Zoffany! Check out some of the photos from our trip below in case you missed our behind the scenes Style Library USA instagram takeover!

Had to leave our “florida” touch at the Hilton in Midtown.. Be back soon NYC!! xo
Here are some before & after’s from this year’s Holiday House opening night gala! We were so excited to to be able to attend this amazing event that showcased work from 21 top Interior Designers while supporting the fight against breast cancer! We had such a great time traveling through each room in the beautiful, 1920’s Upper East Side mansion, checking out all the designer transformations! Some of them are pretty ‘out of the box’ crazy but that was the goal! My absolute favorite was the living room by James Rixner. Such a stunner! Another highlight from the night was getting to hang with Mr. Million Dollar Contractor himself, Stephen Fanuka!! He’s the man!!
