We first discovered the magnificent Birds of Paradise when watching David Attenborough’s wonderful Life of Birds series. While it’s hard for us to call any one bird our favorite, these exotic creatures are probably the ones we love the most. And how can you not? They are living works of art every one. So suffice to say, ever since we saw (via Wired.com) Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s efforts to photograph and document the entire species, we haven’t been able to stop watching the videos since. And don’t ask us to pick a favorite. That IS impossible.
We’ve been dying to share…
Nicki’s apartment has been shot for this month’s Lonny magazine! It has been hard to keep such a fun secret since it was shot back in May. We love working with this incredibly talented team (they always make us look good!) and are so honored to be included in this International Style issue.
Many thanks to Michele, Patrick, and Robert for their enduring support.
And, as always, the entire issue is gorgeous!
We are determined this year not to find ourselves making last minute plans for Labor Day, which is what we always seem to end up doing. So we’ve been researching new places to go and, while the Seychelles is a bit out of both our price & time range for a long weekend trip, we thought we’d share this gem of a place we just discovered, North Island.
We’ll get there one day…!

With so much serpentine goodness featured in fashion this spring, we couldn’t resist pulling together some of our favorite pieces.
We’re big fans of everything Tom Binns does, but are especially in love with this snake cuff!
No one does snakeskin quite like Carlos Falchi.
These Victorian pearl, ruby, and rose cut diamond beauties would make a very nice present (hint, hint).
We’re major Lanvin fans but these pants…oh how do we love them!
Jimmy Choo Topaz Watersnake Wedge Sandals
We’ve been on the hunt for some leather side chairs for a client recently on one of our favorite websites to source pieces from, 1st Dibs, and there are so many great ones we had to share. We never cease to be amazed at the wonderful range of shapes and styles there are out there to chose from–there truly is something perfect for any aesthetic or direction you’d want to go. Here are some of our favorites.
