Get The Look

  • Josef Frank Fabrics at c/o The Maidstone

    By Sara Bliss on August 22, 2016
    For years, The Maidstone Arms Inn in East Hampton was a cute, preppy inn with nautical theme. That all changed a few years ago when the hotel was bought by Swedish hotelier Jenny Ljungberg, who renamed it, c/o The Maidstone, and gave the inn a whimsical, color-saturated, eco-friendly makeover. She teamed up with Nadia Tolstoy (Leo’s granddaughter), to give each of the 19 rooms a […]

    By Sara Bliss on August 21, 2013
    I love how cozy and cool this bedroom is at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. I will have pics from my tour of the hotel later in the week, but in the meantime here is how to get the look for less of my favorite bedroom there. Vintage Dhurrie available through Madeleine Weinrib, on the pricey side but with the […]
  • Get the Look: Palihouse Santa Monica

    By Sara Bliss on June 10, 2013
    I love the clubby, vintage vibe of Palihouse in West Hollywood. Ditto on Palihotel in the same hood.

The 36-room boutique beach lodge is in a historic landmark Spanish Colonial Revival-style building. The lobby above features a […]

Located in a former 1970s ski lodge, rich textures like faux fur headboards, velvet covered chairs, and layered birch paneled walls combine with fun contemporary furniture.  The 88-room hotel was designed by  one of the […]

  • Get The Look: Cecconi’s Lights at Soho Beach House

    By Sara Bliss on January 15, 2013
    A while back I wrote about the design at Cecconi’s, the hotspot restaurant at Soho Beach House. With silver buttonwood trees, twinkling lights and long George Smith Chesterfield sofas for lounging over dinner, designer Vicky Charles did a wonderful job of creating a dreamy, relaxed vibe. Cecconi’s provides so much design inspiration, from pulling up a sofa to your dining […]
