Welcome to FROM THE RIGHT BANK! For over a decade now, I have been sharing tips and ideas online, on tv, and in magazines on what the French call la belle vie, or, the good life. I believe that life is art and these are my guiding principles to live beautifully every day……

Create a beautiful and comfortable home that reflects who we are;
Explore the world around us and the beauty of other cultures;
Express ourselves through personal style;
Nourish our minds and souls through the arts;

Balance healthy eating with gourmet indulgences; and
Connect with nature.

Much of this was gleaned from my years living in Paris (on the right bank, hence the name of this site) and also from my extensive travels (61 countries and still going strong!).

If all of this resonates with you, my Tips & Ideas will give you a good foundation to get started. I also share more thoughts, snapshots of daily life, travels, and inspiration for a new house we’re building in the country on Instagram. I hope to see you there!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
