When choosing draperies or curtains for a room, I make sure that they are as beautiful as they are functional. Draperies are a godsend to keep the summer heat out of your home. I recommend thermal lined curtains, which can reduce the light by up to 90% and insulate against heat. These types of linings are also great to improve the acoustics of a space and reduce echo. You can line any fabric curtain with thermal insulation so the possibilities are endless! ...

Bill’s design tip: add a mirror to the wall of a small room to make it appear larger. It’s the perfect opportunity to choose a mirror that fits the aesthetic of the room, like this antique one I chose for this old-world style living room. The possibilities are endless! ...

We’re back at the Kips Bay Designer Showhouse and I was dying to show you this upstairs terrace by @ellenkavanaugh. This space exudes beach paradise and reminds me of a chic spot in St. Barths.
