Earlier this Summer, I took the editor of Yellowscene Magazine on a mock-shop to Chelsea so she could get a sense of what I do. That, and the interview that followed, comprise her wonderful article on Mile High Style. Let me know what you think!

No Sweat

There are all sorts of impediments to good style, and one I recently helped remedy involved two things that don’t exactly go together: Botox and armpits. Like anything else in the human body, sweat affects people differently, and some people sweat a lot- enough to ruin clothing, or be limited to certain fabrics and styles…. [Cont.]

T-Shirt Terms

Gentleman… I know it’s been a while, but this is too important to ignore any longer… You please please must abdicate your responsibilities as brand ambassadors for Abercrombie, Aeropostale, and other style-less mainstream manufactures. Please turn in your t-shirts, and in their place, consider these possibilities-   CLASSIC- You can never go wrong with the simple, classic crewneck… [Cont.]

I recently completed work on a huge project, a soup-to-nuts transformation of an empty 2-bedroom townhouse into the most stylish ‘Airbnb’ on the market. Sourcing every piece in the house, from the hand made wood headboards in the bedrooms to the hand lotion in the bathrooms, with no detail too small* and no space under-utilized**,… [Cont.]

Cool & Unusual

table tray

One of my style signatures is to repurpose and recreate one item into another. When I saw this antique brass piece from High Street Shoppes (once used to hold soap and other tub amenities), my mind immediately went to entry tray. If you’re lacking a cool piece to hold your mail, keys, sunglasses, change, etc, or… [Cont.]

fan

Sharing the top spot on the list of builder-grade/came-with-the-house items that always need replacing? The ceiling fan*. If the current installation isn’t the cheapest option available, it is, in all likelihood, unsightly and needing an upgrade. Depending on how many need replacing, your options range according to price: in the under $300 range, this is… [Cont.]

Wedge Wonderful

Every season, J.Crew takes their best selling shoes and refines them ever so slightly, making an already great shoe that much better. Their celebrated wedge has received a bit of a makeover heading into Fall, where a slight curve and thinning out of the wedge ads a greater sense of refinement to the overall shoe…. [Cont.]

Style Theory Part II

If you’re in agreement with yesterday’s Style Theory, a logical question follows: how the hell do I overhaul a room and where to even begin? This post will hopefully steer you in the right direction and make the entire process easily digestible and, perhaps, a little fun. Style– Whether you’re changing one room or every room… [Cont.]

Style Theory Part I

home

Mile High Style incorporates both fashion and home styling as they are two bookends on the same shelf; to improve style in either area, the same rules apply. Lately, among my home clients, I’ve been observing the misconception that a few new pieces can transform a room from humdrum into fabulous. Moreover, I’ve come into… [Cont.]

Pun most definitely intended.  If there is one mainstream furniture store that consistently delivers quality pieces while continuing to evolve its own style sensibility, it has to be Restoration Hardware. In a world teeming with ‘cool shit’, their stuff continues to wow, and I send clients there for big (bed, dresser, sofa) and small pieces… [Cont.]
