I am currently building a home from scratch. I have absolutely no idea what to expect. Of course we worked closely with the architect on the plans, and are knee-deep in the nitty gritty, but I am such a visual person so it's so tough to visualize! My inspo hails from Vanessa Traina’s The Apartment by The Line: rustic, industrial beach chic! I can’t seem to nail precisely what to call our style, but it involves influences from old Parisian apartments in the Marais, to the beachy homes on the Venice canals that one of my fave designers, Amber Lewis, would curate. I am most excited for the master bathroom — it's the one place we are truly splurging on and building a massive shower that spans the width of the entire room complete with marble and brass plumbing. The rest of the house will be more understated, but I think it's jokes to have a room or two that feel like a modern day liberace-esque spa.
THE SELECT GUEST
MEET | ERIN KLEINBERG
Featured 9.26-10.2 | Every October, the National Women's Business Council celebrates Women in Small Business. So obviously we chose Erin Kleinberg to usher in the month that basically should just be dedicated to her. After a stint with W's Fashion Director, she went on to start her own clothing line at the age of 20, which spread like wildfire throughout the fashion industry. And as if that isn't enough, she then launched The Coveteur, re-launched her eponymous clothing line, and then co-founded Métier Creative (with last week's Select Guest, Stacie Brockman). And had a baby. And she did all of this in three years. So, yeah, she deserves to have a month dedicated to her. Or maybe two. To me, she epitomizes all that is enviable in this cool, new world of influencers and virtual celebs. Her eye for everything creative is flawless, as are her selects.
Welcome to Erin's week.
