David Garcelon, Culinary Director at the Waldorf Astoria Tells NYC&G What Led Him to Start a Roof Garden

I’ve learned everything I know about gardening right here. We’ve partnered with George Pisegna, the deputy director and chief of horticulture of the Horticultural Society of New York, who gives us planting advice. Anyone can plant herbs, but it’s great to have an expert on hand. It’s like the difference between a cook and a chef!

Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

Locust Valley- and New York- based Designer Jeff Lincoln Gets Away From It All at a Charming Cottage in Southampton

"When it came to designing the interiors," writes Jeff Lincoln of his Southampton cottage, "I decided to embrace the cottage-y style of my house, rather than try to make it into something it’s not. While I am very decisive about what’s best for my clients, I am less so when it comes to my own place. It’s a fairly common conundrum for interior decorators: Confronted with so much choice for themselves, they often don’t do much in the end.

Boscobel, an 1805 Beauty Overlooking the Hudson River, Is More Resplendent Than Ever During This Special Time of Year

It’s hard to believe it was almost a teardown. “Boscobel, an early architectural treasure in the Hudson River Valley, is ready for the scrap heap,” read a May 12, 1955, article in The New York Times. The Federal-era jewel had been languishing since 1923, when Westchester County bought the circa-1805 house and land, in the riverside hamlet of Montrose, with the intention of creating a park. But it remained vacant and began to slide into decay, and in 1941, the county’s parks department decided to raze it.

For the second year in a row, the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island (RMH-LI) is style central, as NYC&G and Kravet present Phase II of Project Design, a renovation initiative that brings new life to this haven of hope for critically ill children and their families.

With the Help of Designer Larry Laslo, a Lifelong Collector Puts Her Unerring Eye to the Test

For Alice Netter, walking into her new Hamptons beach house in 1977 required vision—as well as a tool belt. “It was pretty bad,” she says. “There was a turquoise floor and metal valances with pompons. For the first two months, I walked around with a screwdriver in my pocket, taking everything down.”

Designer Robert Couturier Decorates a Brooklyn Brownstone for a Very Important Person--His Own Lawyer

It’s said that word of mouth is the best advertising for any business—whether you’re looking for an attorney or a designer. But for decorator Robert Couturier and his lawyer, David Berger, referrals weren’t even necessary when it came to doing business together.
