If I had a dollar for every time a client or friend showed me a picture of an all-white space and said, “This is what I want!”, I could move to a little villa in Spain!  Well, maybe not exactly, but you know what I mean.  The thing about all-white spaces is that, when you…

get the look: easy, breezy in the hamptons

January 26, 2015

I’ve been all over with this blog lately; one day I’m posting summer stripes and the next, I’m pining for a weekend getaway in Aspen.  Well, I’m about to flip it up again because over the weekend, as I was making my way through a ginormous pile of magazines to get rid of, I stumbled…

get the look: aspen extreme

January 22, 2015

There are times when I really do miss winters in the Northeast.  And then I quickly remember how it snowed in April the last year I lived in Philadelphia and how much fun it was digging my car out of my parking space on Easter weekend and I resume my love for living in the…

get the look: contemporary oceanfront beauty

January 12, 2015

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It’s cold and rainy and gray today and it’s mornings like these that make me wish I was at the beach. There’s nothing cozier than curling up with a soft blanket, a cup of tea and watching the rain (or even better, snow!) fall on the sea. …

As promised, a return to all things design and decor is in full effect and I can’t think of a better way to kick off blogging in 2015 than with one heck of a beauty of a home tour!  As an east coast girl myself, I’ve always had an affinity for homes that echo traditional…

hgtv dream house – martha’s vineyard

December 16, 2014

Have you guys seen the HGTV dream home on Martha’s Vineyard yet?  Let me tell you, it’s good.  Really good.  When it comes to beach houses, I’ll take small and cozy over sprawling McMansions any day of the week, but surprisingly, this home, despite its size, really does have a cottage feel.  It’s classic New…

get the look: sleek mountain house

December 8, 2014

Let’s take a break from the Christmas posts and tour what is probably the most amazing mountain house I’ve ever seen, shall we?  I’ve always had a bit of an obsession with a getaway in the mountains in the dead of winter.  There’s something so comfy and cozy about holing up in a cabin in…

instagram inspiration: gadabout

December 2, 2014

One of my favorite house tours was a few years ago when Glitter Guide did a feature on then Charleston-based graphic designer Hanna Seabrook’s beautiful home.  Aside from having the perfect, lived-in, layered look, what I loved most about her home was how she blended heirloom pieces with more modern finds for a young, fresh feel…

I try not to post things that have already made their way around blogland, but this gem of a house tour has been a favorite of mine lately and it’s just too good, I couldn’t resist!  Designed by Irene Lovett of designstiles, an LA-based interior design firm that actually specializes in nurseries and kid’s spaces…

coronado showhouse

November 12, 2014

I always look forward to the annual showhouses put out each year by my favorite design publications and since it’s no secret I love a beautiful beach house, I was especially excited to see the Coastal Living showhouse in Coronado, designed by LA-based Betsy Burnham and her partner, Max Humphrey.  To be honest, I thought…
