Closets are a private, intimate space in which all of your beautiful belongings live. Because most of us are making outfit choices in our closets, I believe that it’s important to feel creatively inspired while spending time in there. For me this means keeping my closet well organized and well edited and complete with special details. I like bringing in personality driven elements that aren’t wardrobe related such as fresh flowers, a favorite perfume, delicate little tchotchke’s and the crème de la crème: wallpaper.
Farrow & Ball recently challenged a handful of bloggers to wallpaper the back of our own wardrobes with their stunning papers and this is the result of mine! I chose a print from their spring 2015 wallpaper collection which is inspired by nineteenth and twentieth century French fashion and it’s perfectly neutral and textured at the same time.
In addition, I’m giving away wallpaper to one lucky winner to decorate your own closet with. All F&B wallpapers are unique, created using their own paints traditionally trough or block printed onto ground papers to give them an extraordinary texture and appearance. They’re truly the best!
Here’s how to enter:

Easy enough? Good luck!
I teamed up with Connor and Barneys New York to design our beautiful bespoke wedding invitations and we made a video about the process to share the experience. Connor’s work is incredibly elegant and sophisticated and it was such a treat to collaborate with them on this special occasions.
I’ll be sharing the lovely invitations they made for us later this week. Hope you like the video! xxread more
Wedding planning can be tremendously overwhelming. There are so many things to do and the learning curve can be steep especially when it comes to things like registering. What does one actually need for their kitchen? How many place settings? Is China necessary? What’s the best way to register?
I found myself in that overwhelmed position a few months ago and spent quite a few days really finding out all of the answers. I’ve put all my research together and created my ultimate kitchen registry on Blueprint Registry, a company who has completely reinvented the wedding registry system by doing it room by room.
I hope this guide helps make registering a little easier to navigate and less stressful. Please note that my registry guide assumes that you are going to cook and experiment in the kitchen and it’s meant to ensure that you have everything you need including pretty things like serving platters and China. It’s a lot but only take from this what you think you will use over the next decade. You can scroll through the guide here on Blueprint and/or read the detailed list:
1. Pots, pans, etc.: A Stainless-Steel Cookware set to include 8″ and 10″ fry pans, 2-qt. and 4-qt. saucepans with lids, 4-qt. sauté pan with lid. 8-qt. stockpot with lid (I like All Clad), 2 nonstick frying pans in the sizes you’d use most (I like 8″ and 12″), 6 qt essential pan (optional), dutch oven, cast iron fry pan, cast iron grill pan, pizza stone, griddle.
2. Knives: 9 piece knife block set, kitchen shears, chefs knife, pairing knife, knife sharpener and a mandoline.
3. Electronics: Blender (I vote Vitamix), food processor (Cuisinart all the way), mini prep, KitchenAid stand mixer (with the attachments you want), hand mixer, blender stick, toaster oven, espresso machine (or coffee maker but I vote espresso), a juicer (optional).read more
