Paul Newman

Paul Newman's craft was acting. His passion was racing. His love was his family and friends. And his heart and soul were dedicated to helping make the world a better place for all.
- Robert Forrester, vice-chairman of Newman's Own Foundation

Makié Clothiers for Women

I've already said how much I love Makié Clothiers for children. I just found out that they now carry a collection for women. Yay!

At home with the Toledos

Reading this led me to this, which is a spread on Ruben and Isabel Toledo's midtown home. Light-filled, packed bookcases, art and fasyon everywhere, and hula hoops!

Photos by David Allee.

The hula hoops are for exercising in your beautiful party frock. It reminded me that I've been wanting to try this. There are even more interior shots here.

I do love Isabel.

And Ruben is a post of his own.

Random Interiors

I recently threw out a collection of interiors magazines - some dating back to, well, a looong time ago ... when stacked heels were all the rage. Saying hello to the post-uggs age, I'm scanning some favorite images. Unfortunately, impatience with the scanning process has resulted in less than perfect, that is, tilted images. Some more favorites to come. Most bloggers take blog breaks. I'm the reverse, and disappear from here quite often. Maybe this will be what makes me a regular around these parts. On to my first Random Interiors post ...

Maybe it's the chill as the season turns (my favorite season, I love you autumn!!!). I love the warmth this room exudes (and the slight eccentric air about it).

MUJI fits in my apartment!!

So...I need this bed. Seriously. [I suffer from "small apartment" syndrome. My studio is "Tokyo-sized."]

Is it at the flagship Muji Store on 42nd Street? Sigh....

“Because there is complexity in purity. Elegance in plainness. Intricacy in streamlining. Richness in reduction. Depth in minimalism. Surprise in uniformity. Innovation in re-use. Cool in the avoidance of cool. And there is true sophistication in simplicity.”

Literally translated, Mujirushi Ryohin, MUJI’s original name, means “no brand quality goods.” I heard they put labels on everything the minute they hit the Big Apple!!

Thoughts, Candy?

Daniela Gregis FW08/09

Loving these looks for the upcoming cold season from Daniela Gregis (summer's Master of Linen). Although, I pass on that hat in the first photo. What is that?
