editor’s letter

Holkham Hall.Breakfast at Houghton Hall.Sandringham House.Houghton Hall.The table at Houghton Hall.A de Gournay print.A bathroom at Houghton Hall.A scene from dinner.I LOVE AUTUMN IN ENGLAND. There’s something about the slow lead-up to the holiday season that feels protracted and deliciously long. In New York, it’s the opposite. One minute you’re on holiday in Majorca, eating whole fish at Ca’s Patro March, and then bam! You’re racing to see the windows on Fifth Avenue and then you’re on a plane again, this time to Miami for Art Basel (more on this later). Anyway, in September, I found myself with ED A-List designer Kathryn M. Ireland in a pink, silk-covered four-poster bed at Houghton Hall, one of the most beautiful houses in the Norfolk countryside. We were there for a dinner honoring…

You’re an artist-in-residence at 92Y in Manhattan. Yes.Congratulations. What’s on your agenda there?A gallery show, a series of youth programs, and a talk with Ilana Glazer from Broad City on November 30.Yas queen! What’s your connection to her?She’s a fan of mine and has some of my art in her home.What would you change about the art world with the snap of a finger?I’d take down the facade built around it and call out all the BS and make it transparent.Which BS is that?We have an art world that doesn’t want to open up to everyone, because it might no longer have an air of importance. Wealthy people would still spend money on art but, at the same time, we’d empower artists and let everyone feel like they’re a part…

no skis, please

A guest room at Caldera House.I love to ski, but I would rather have a lazy fireside breakfast than hit the slopes at the crack of dawn. Which is why one of my favorite Alpine resorts is Schloss Elmau ( in Bavaria, Germany, a turn-of-the-20th-century castle near Garmisch-Partenkirchen that in recent years has been modernized with 162 rooms and suites, several spas, and a world-class concert hall. Another mountain property to note is the new Caldera House (, an eight-suite chalet and members-only club outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Los Angeles–based design firm Commune has successfully pulled off a sleek Cali take on the European chalet, with natural wood, stone surfaces, and Navajo kilim pillows. The big news of 2019 is the opening of Blackberry Mountain (, in Tennessee’s Great Smoky…

frosty tips

When snow starts to accumulate, my skis and I head to Utah and stay at the chic and cozy Washington School House Hotel. I might dig flakes landing on my face, but I’m more selective about the frost in my makeup: I choose between the subtle glimmer of Marc Jacobs Highliner Glam Glitter Gel Eye Crayon in White with Silver Glitter (9, $25; marc, the warmth of Chantecaille Moonlit Perle Glow Powder (6, $125;, or the lit-from-within gleam of Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb in Diamond Milk (8, $18;, which is remarkably non-sticky. On a day off from the trails, I’ll pamper my skin with Teresa Tarmey’s firming At Home Cryotherapy Kit, which includes a stainless steel Cryo Ball (4, $290; teresa, or the new brightening and…

“The Cresta Run is truly unique. This was the first one ever built and is nearly a mile long. I confess that I have never tobogganed, and probably never will, but will continue to enjoy it from afar!”“The Olympic Stadium is an architectural gem. The building has been renovated by my friend, artist and designer Rolf Sachs, whose work we showed at Hauser & Wirth in Gstaad two years ago.”“The Leaning Tower is centuries old, a magnificent sight and an incredible place for contemplation.”Since the 19th century, the Swiss mountain town of St. Moritz has been a snowy retreat for celebrities and the Occident’s most moneyed. During a recent sojourn, I happened upon a store that dealt in home furnishings upholstered in chinchilla—an impulse buy for a Romanov, perhaps. A high level of gilt was the…
