Shop Talk

We are busy at MK Style renovating the store, stocking our shelves and designing our new e-commerce website! 

It has been very exciting around here and we are eager to strut our stuff next week....but until then, we would like to strut thru these favorite chic shops:

29 East 93rd Street

Anything you can possibly gift to someone can be personalized here- 
a onesie, an ice bucket, a cashmere throw, a kleenex cover....anything!

10 Columbus Circle

Have you been? We knew you had. 
Last time I visited- it was a true event (and not even a special event at that...
just another C. Wonder day!) I was greeted by a dancing D.J. 
Though it can be a little overwhelming, 
it is a feast for your eyes and...a drain on your pocket book.

Bal Harbor Mall
Miami Beach, Florida

My one and only addiction is coffee table books! 
I have hundreds throughout my home- 
stacked on shelves, on dressers, on ottomans, on countertops....
you could literally read your way thru every single room and hallway in my home. 
Yes, it's a bit of a problem.

So, naturally- this is my favorite place when I go to Miami Beach. 


Located in the heart of the shopping village, 
this store (which is not so big) is absolutely stuffed...
with every cover-up, tunic, floral pant, ruffled tank or patterned scarf 
you could dream up! 

The Grocery Store
Presidio Heights
3625 Sacramento Street
San Francisco

How brilliant is this? 
When this shows up on your daddy's card or hubby's Amex bill...
you might just slide by.
Not a can of soup, carton of milk or cereal here, 
just luxe goods to fill your closet. 

One of my most favorite pair of cowboy boots came from here. 

Some obvious brands and ones you have never heard of, 
are stacked on concrete tables and hang from freestanding racks. 

No frills but definitely the best dressed in town.

Color Crush: Yellow for Fall

Yellow casts a warm glow, brings the sunshine in and gives us the warmth of fall. Each year I try and incorporate it somehow, somewhere to give the hint of season. Here are our favorite sun-kissed spaces and ways to bring the glow to your home.

Steven Gambrel in the Pink

I adore this project by famed designer Steven Gambrel. It's true country chic filled with antiques and artifacts but glammed up- with his true talent and signature touch- of hot pink and club navy. Fabulous.

Bold with Black

Painting your walls black sounds crazy! but it is a dramatic way to change the life of your space and sometimes create a more calming space. A sophisticated palette that ages a room gracefully.

Color? None at all!

Lots of Color is certainly trending right now in the interior and fashion worlds but here is an example of how little to no color can be bold and beautiful in itself!

Designer Richard Hallberg recently graced the pages of Veranda Magazine with this project but I had to show it off again. It is a great example of mixing old and new, adding layer upon layer of rich texture but not adding any color.
