Summer Looks


With muted hues and style androgyny gaining traction season after season, it’s been a while since super traditionally-feminine pieces had their moment on the industry’s radar. For Summer, however, frothy fabrics and pretty pink hues – from pastel to candy, rose and fuchsia – prove an interesting, playful point of difference in the fashion landscape. Add as many ruffles, tulle underlayers or pastel shades as you feel comfortable with.

Old-Money Aesthetic

The expression “Old Money” is to me not a reference to where your money comes from or how old it actually is… It’s a mindset! “Old money” has less to do with the origins of one’s bank account, and more to do with what its contents are spent on. It’s about an appreciation for traditional values!

Madison’s Parisian Nursery

Madison’s nursery is inspired by late 18th-century French antiques and The Parisian Style. Feminine pieces of furniture and chic French inspired decor, just perfect for our little European-American Baby Doll! As an European Mommy, I wanted to stick to my favorite clean, white, bright and timeless designs from back home for Madison’s room, and then adding some beautiful light pinks and blush colors to make it adorably girly! Many of the furniture pieces in Madison’s nursery will grow with her and also be appropriate for when she’s a toddler and young teenager!



Our Precious Baby Girl

Our perfect little dream of a baby girl arrived June 22, just minutes before midnight! We’re sooo madly in love and obsessed with her! We named our little miracle Madison Frøya!  Madison is our favorite girl name, our favorite street in Manhattan and where my husband was born (Madison, Wisconsin). Frøya is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility and war, and the most beautiful and fierce of all the Norse Gods. I felt it was so important to give her a Norse name since I’m Norwegian!
