My latest addiction is Bravo's 'The Rachel Zoe Project'

For those of you frittering your life away researching stem cells or promoting world peace, tune in to see a real breakthrough -- Zoe & team getting Anne Hathaway through 2 flawless wardrobe changes at last year's Academy Awards while simutaneously styling Jennifer Garner's May 2009 In Style photo shoot.

Gritty, gritty stuff.

Brimfield Antiques Show

The extraordinary outdoor market known simply as 'Brimfield' - one of the largest and best known in the country - has been held in this small Massachusetts town for 50 years.

The final show of 2009 begins today, and whether you favor traditional or modern, you'll find much to love.

And after Brimfield, there's no place better than the bake shop @ Old Sturbridge Village for warm cookies and lemonade to go.

And published in American Farmhouses.

I think I'm in love.

Located in the idyllic town of Washington, Connecticut, The Mayflower Inn is less than 2 hours north of Manhattan.

At the heart of Mayflower’s 58 acre estate lies Spa House, a luminous 20,000 square foot relaxation resource that provides a serene haven for your mani-pedi.

So get thee to Washington (& don't forget the black AmEx)

The 'New' American Wing

This past Spring, after more than 2 years of construction and renovation, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's unparalleled collections of American furniture, sculpture, stained glass, architectural elements, ceramics, glass, silver, pewter, and jewelry were once again made accessible to the public.

As part of this restoration, 12 of the Met's historic interiors were renovated and reinterpreted, with stunning results. Here are 4 of my favorites...
