Faucet Goals

Palais Keep It Chic

After 20 years casting models for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and fashion shows, I wanted to spend more time with my daughters. In 2010 I launched the fashion and lifestyle site Keep it Chic so that I could work from anywhere. Now, welcome to Palais, an interiors-focused sister site to kic that will include home decor and real estate—I can't be the only one who likes to peruse chic properties online the same way I shop for shoes, handbags, and table linens.
