beautiful in bridgehampton

November 4, 2014

I’m a little behind in making my way through the last few month’s worth of design magazines (my stack is now twice as high as the basket they sit in!) so, last night I popped open a bottle of wine and started flipping through a couple and right away this renovated 19th century farmhouse in…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I got a babysitter for the FIRST TIME since Baby Girl was born so we could go out and celebrate a friend’s birthday; given that Lydia is almost ten months old, you can imagine how big a deal this was for momma bear.  There are still nights…

antique-filled in amagansett

October 1, 2014

Fall is finally starting to (slowly) creep its way to the south and I couldn’t be happier!  I’ve been glued to my Pinterest page lately but, instead of fall decorations, I’ve been drooling over tailored spaces in neutral color palettes with lots of texture, beautiful antiques, and luxurious textiles.  I’ve always been drawn to more…

chic (and colorful) in nantucket

September 16, 2014

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know it’s no secret I have a slight crush on designer/architect extraordinaire Steven Gambrel.  If you’ve ever perused his portfolio, it’s not hard to see why.  While all of his work is absolutely amazing, I have always been drawn most to how beautifully he pairs…

sullivan’s island stunner

September 9, 2014

Charleston is one of my favorite, most magical cities to visit and the neighboring beaches are just as spectacular, my favorite being Sullivan’s Island.  The beach itself is gorgeous, the water warm and the homes to die for!  This stunner, featured in Charleston Mag, is a fabulous example of the beauties dotting the shoreline; I couldn’t…

I’m still in denial that August is rapidly coming to a close, so, in the lingering spirit of the summer, I thought I’d share one of my favorite sea-inspired house tours featured in Domino a few years back.  Do you guys remember photographer Matt Albiani’s New York City apartment and Hamptons retreat?  If you were a fan…

August 20, 2014

Have you guys seen the latest issue of Lonny?  It’s good.  REALLY good.  Just when I’m feeling uninspired, I stumble upon the charming Sag Harbor home of Stella + Dot co-founder Blythe Harris and start giggling like a little school girl with excitement! This summer cottage has it all – crisp white shiplap walls, warm,…

easy, breezy beach house chic

August 18, 2014

I’m hanging on to the remaining days of summer with a vengeance.  Even though it’ll be a while until we get any cooler temps here in the south, it’s been so gray and gloomy lately it almost feels like Fall already.  What better way to perk up those summer spirits than with a beautiful beach…

steven gambrel’s 18th century sea captain’s house

August 14, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a house tour, but it hasn’t been for lack of trying to find something worthy to write about, I promise.  It’s been my experience that oldies really are goodies and that the homes I find the most inspirational are those whose design and style withstand the true test…

July 14, 2014

Pardon the silence on the blog the last week or so; we’ve been busy celebrating a very special baby girl’s half birthday, as well as her daddy’s return from deployment!  It’s been a whirlwind of excitement around here lately, but I’m back to blogging and what better way to kick off the week than with…
