HOW TO MAKE A DEMIJOHN LAMP

I’ve had quite the love affair with demijohn lamps since I first laid eyes on one in this Sag Harbor property years ago – so much so, in fact, I devoted an entire blog post to it here. I love how much interest and drama they add to a corner or side table, but I…

ENTERTAINING PRETTIES FOR FALL + THE HOLIDAYS

I’ve never been the biggest fan of decorating with shades of red, but I have to say, lately I’m loving wine paired with lots of texture, silver, a little ironstone and, of course, a few topiary for the table! I found the prettiest gingham napkins in burgundy and they inspired me to do a roundup…

DIY HALLOWEEN BATS

I shared a photo on Insta yesterday of some bat decorations I put up every year for the kids and I got so many questions about where I found them, that I decided to do a post on them here! I actually made these myself years ago; I printed out a bat template online and…

OCTOBER (p)INSPIRATION

October is one of the most magical months in the fall; the temps hover between the 70’s and 80’s, there’s little humidity and everything is still green. This is the time of year when we eat outside the most, rush home from school to drop our stuff and ride bikes and play baseball until time…

INSPIRED: DEMIJOHN TABLE LAMPS

It’s no secret I’ve had a longstanding love affair with the work of interior designer Steven Gambrel.  I’ve flipped through his portfolio when looking for inspiration more times than I can count and I always find something new to fall in love with in his spaces.  One of my favorite accessories that he uses in…

BEST OF SUMMER BLOOMS AND A ROUNDUP OF BEAUTIFUL VASES

The only upside to the end of summer, for me, is that there is a plethora of dahlias in bloom to soothe the sadness of my littles returning to school! One of my dear friends started her own flower farm a few years ago and I always looked forward to her end-of-summer subscription for the…

END OF SUMMER FAVORITES THAT EFFORTLESSLY TRANSITION TO FALL

We still have a long way to go until it starts to feel anything like fall around here, so while the temps and humidity are still high, we are still very much in summer mode. Since I’m a perpetual summer girl, I’m the last person on the planet to reach for fall tones and pumpkin…

DREAM HOUSE: FOUR ELMS COTTAGE IN EAST HAMPTON

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve more than likely seen this East Hampton stunner a time or two on my feed. I can’t think of a better way to ease back into blogging than to share one of my personal favorites, Four Elms Cottage, a gorgeous white clapboard beauty, nestled between one hundred year…

SUMMER FAVORITES FOR THE POOL

Ah, sweet summer time! I look forward to this time all school year long….lazy mornings, long days by the pool, wrinkly toes and fingers and best yet – no schedules and nowhere to be but with my littles. The photo below just about sums it up for me – some much-needed downtime with my littles…

SUMMER (PIN)SPIRATION

Falling down a rabbit hole on Pinterest at night after the littles go to bed has become a favorite pasttime as of late and it’s quite obvious where my mind is lately, with the pins I’ve been saving! The one thing I do love most about Pinterest is that, the more you pin certain types…

JULY 4TH 2022

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend and a fabulous Fourth of July! The tropical storm that was supposed to blow through diverted and we had the most amazing weather, which lent itself to an equally incredible long weekend with friends, family, food and pool time and it was truly one of the…

RED, WHITE + BLUE FAVORITES FOR THE 4TH

The Fourth of July is this weekend already, and we are ready to celebrate with a bevy of red, white and blue decorations, good food and, hopefully, amazing weather! I’m not usually the biggest fan of red, but this time of year, I love to display small pops of it in full force, alongside navy,…
