Easy and Elegant

I came across this dream kitchen on Architectural Digest and then realized that I know the designers. They are Joshua Greene and Katrina Hernandez of Hernandez Greene who helped the owners create their dream house in Sagaponack on Long Island.

Magical Maine Wedding

I always think it’s interesting that the word for wedding in French is marriage. I think we’ve all seen a situation where someone seemed to spend more time thinking about the wedding than the marriage itself.

As I mentioned the other day, you can only purchase during Early Access if you have a Nordstrom card. You’re definitely going to want to get one once you see […]

I photograph this house in Sag Harbor on every visit to the harbor town. In fact, the first three photos in this post are ones I took on three different trips. I love the grey color and the Porsche convertible that is always sitting in the driveway. I happened to click on a photo on […]

Today, July 10, 2017, marks my 10 year blog anniversary. I still can’t believe it’s been 10 years since I wrote My First Post. I remember telling a man that I was going to start a blog and he said I’d never keep up with it. In reality, he was what I did not keep […]

The Chicest Chateau

Visiting Coco Chanel’s apartment was a bucket list item that actually came true. Perhaps if I wish hard enough, I may find myself at Chateau de Wideville someday. Not exactly sure under what circumstances that might happen but a girl can dream. Chateau de Wideville is the 17th-century home in France owned by Valentino who […]
