a stunning east hampton family home

June 29, 2016

I finally got a chance to sift through the three-foot high stack of design magazines that have been acting as a makeshift side table next to my sofa the other day and I have to say, the June issue of Architectural Digest is KILLING me softly, it’s so good!  As soon as I landed upon…

November 16, 2015

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Mine passed so quickly, I feel like the last three days were a complete blur. A highlight was reading this article by One King’s Lane on the release of Carolyn Roehm’s latest book, At Home in the Garden, complete with some of the prettiest images…

inspired design: matthew caughy

November 2, 2015

It doesn’t matter the time of year or how cold it may be outside, I am always influenced by the sea and I love bringing small bits of it into my home year round, so it’s no surprise I was instantly smitten with the sea-inspired portfolio of New York-based interior designer Matthew Caughy.  His style…

I hope you all had a lovely weekend!  With this glorious fall weather that has finally arrived I was sad to see ours come to an end, but I can’t think of a better way to kick off the start of a new week than with some gorgeous eye candy!  Jamie Meares posted a tour…

forever chic: ralph lauren

October 8, 2015

I was going through some old shelter mags over the weekend and found an issue of House Beautiful from November 2004 featuring the Hampton’s Showhouse designed that year by Ralph Lauren.  I couldn’t put it down, constantly taking little peeks all weekend!  The design, decor and styling is a testament to Lauren’s forever timeless, tailored…

get the look: the brooklyn brownstone from the intern

September 28, 2015

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I managed to snag a babysitter and sneak away to see The Intern on Saturday; if you haven’t seen it yet, I definitely recommend it!  I love Nancy Meyers’ films as much for the set design as (and sometimes more than) the movies themselves, and the Brooklyn…

porch envy

August 6, 2015

Summer should be all about a classic blue and white color palette and super chic outdoor living, wouldn’t you agree?  I’ve been smitten with this covered porch by designers Lance Jackson and David Ecton and think it totally nails the quintessential summer aesthetic, from the incredible scalloped water hyacinth console table and collection of blue…

a dreamy backyard retreat

July 20, 2015

Living in the South, the weather is decent enough to be outside for basically nine months of the year and so outdoor spaces are a big part of the way most of us live down here.  It goes without saying, then, that the best outdoor spaces are those that live like extensions of the indoors…

I’ve always been drawn to places that are inspired by the ocean, no matter where I go or what time of year it is (I happen to think snow falling on the sea is the most magical sight and my idea of the perfect summer afternoon is eating oysters on the half shell and sipping…

June 23, 2015

I can’t believe it’s been a whole fourteen days since I last blogged!!  The hubby has had leave the last two weeks and so we took advantage of each and every single minute and soaked up some serious family time.  We were at the beach last week for some much-needed R+R and as sad as…
