Beautiful Books


Sometimes it's ok to judge a book by its cover—especially if said books are designed by the incredibly talented Allison Colpoys. Not surprisingly, the Australia native has won a number of national awards including Young Designer of the Year in 2009. Her exquisite work makes me want to run to a book shop!

Get the Look: Rock & Roll Glam



As the former style director of Real Simple, Marcus Hay is no stranger to producing unforgettable magazine spreads and breathtaking interiors. The Australia native has worked with some of the industry’s most sought-after clientele, including Vogue Australia, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Design Within Reach, and West Elm. So when Kimberly Steward of Kess Agency gave Hay free rein to design a living/work space in Manhattan’s Financial District, he jumped at the opportunity.



Head over to The Washingtonian for more photos and my exclusive Q&A with the acclaimed stylist. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite pieces from the project.

Shop these items: 1. Decorative pillow by John Robshaw, 2. Faceted mirror side table at West Elm, 3. Safari rug at West Elm, 4. Wild Pink 2080-40 paint by Benjamin Moore, 5. Lamp from OLighting, 6. Coffee table by Crate & Barrel.
