How to Elevate Your Basics

With new seasons, come new starts, including opportunities to refresh, update and elevate your wardrobe. Perhaps its a function of getting older and simply having less time and space for highly disposable fast fashion items, but I’ve definitely noted a shift in the way I shop and dress these days.

One Year Old!

Celebrating a baby’s first birthday is a wonderful milestone, but I never quite understood the significance until we reached it with our little one and safely welcomed the beginning of another precious year of life. In our home, birthdays have always been a time for celebration, but Rafa’s 1st birthday was especially meaningful for a…

Perhaps we’re all still lamenting the loss of festival season or we’ve…

My Urban Oasis: Part II

The Wine Lounge Optimizing our small, but precious outdoor space to enjoy this summer also meant creating a cozy area to unwind in after work or on the weekends, or a place to (eventually, I hope) entertain family and friends. Since the Wine Lounge occupies the other side of our narrow terrace (located around the…

My Urban Oasis: Part I

The Sun Lounge Any amount of outdoor space in New York City is a luxury, but our terrace, with its narrow and L-shaped configuration, presented a real challenge for furnishing and enjoying it all these years. But, with all of this extra time at home, I realized it was time to give our terrace a…
