hello!

I'm Monica, the creator & editor of Monica Francis Design. I'm a perpetual traveler, lifelong dancer and design devotee based in New York City.  I just can't seem to stop visiting faraway places and hunting for the latest fashionable finds. As you browse my collection of curated travel guides and style picks, my hope is that you'll be inspired to thoughtfully design your life, from everyday experiences to your grandest adventures. 

When I’m not writing or traveling, you can find me dancing in the studio, sending a stack of snail mail letters, or cooking in the kitchen with my husband Harrison. Some of my favorite things are snow, cities, and popping open a bottle of champagne for no particular occasion.
