The Sheiling

07 . 03 . 18

There is nothing I love more than looking at real estate listings while traveling. I passed quite a few houses on Nantucket that I later realized were for sale. One was a famous brick home at 93 Main Street and another was a charming, albeit expensive, cottage at 8 Old North Wharf. I didn’t pass […]

Since architect and interior designer Daniel Romualdez doesn’t have a website or an Instagram account, I really appreciate it when he shares one of his homes with a magazine. I was delighted to flip through the new August issue of Vanity Fair to find a feature on his Montauk retreat. The property right off the […]

You can’t go to the Hamptons and not think about beach house interior design.  I love pale sea colors and seascapes so can’t wait to decorate my own house someday.  Designer Matthew Caughy‘s Delaware beach house featured on One Kings Lane is great inspiration for anyone’s beach house project. Read the entire story and shop the look here.

I’m still recovering from my fun weekend in the Hamptons and have a lot of photos still to edit.  Until those are ready, I’m leaving you with this beautiful home in Bridgehampton, New York designed by Vicente Wolf. Nothing says the beach like blue and white but what I really love is the interesting art […]

Nautical Chic

07 . 19 . 10

You didn’t really think I could stop at just one nautical post did you?! I grew up in a home with paintings of ships and boats, scrimshaw, and Nantucket Lightship baskets (which is kind of funny since Pennsylvania is a landlocked state) and the love of everything nautical has stayed with me. I have my […]

Summer Rerun

06 . 30 . 10

I’m busy working today and trying to get through a thousand annoying emails so I’m posting an oldie but a goodie from 2008. This fabulous house in the Hamptons used to belong to Steven Gambrel before friends of LA designer Ruthie Sommers bought it and asked her to decorate the place. I love the colors […]

Beach House Blues

06 . 04 . 10

If you haven’t picked up the June 2010 issue of House Beautiful, you’re missing out. I am especially loving this beach house filled with shades of blue designed by Jim Howard. Bon Weekend! Photos by Francesco Lagnese

You may not be able to stay at Jacques Grange’s Portuguese retreat but you can buy the furniture he owns! I got a lovely email today from John Himmel who produces the wonderful handwoven rope furniture that is not only popular with Jacques Grange but also interior designer Michael Smith. The Rope Collection was inspired […]

Chic Rustique

08 . 12 . 09

Speaking of Jacques Grange, maybe instead of stalking him in Paris, I will stalk him next August at his house in Portugal. Actually, it’s not a house but four traditional thatched roof cabanas that line the dunes on a remote stretch of the coast. Grange says the “landscape, furnishings, carpets, and cushions exert an exotic, […]

Weekend Chic

07 . 01 . 09

While I was looking through designer Meg Braff‘s portfolio, I came across the most perfect East Hampton home. I love the patterns and shades of blue she used throughout all the spaces. The mudroom is my favorite room and pretty much sums up the feeling of this chic weekend home. I can also imagine how […]

Summertime Blues

06 . 11 . 09

I feel like all it’s done in New York lately is rain so all I can think about is the beach and summer. That’s probably why this house in Southampton designed by Markham Roberts is one of my new favorites. I love all the shades of blue and accents of green mixed with the natural […]

Island Life

03 . 31 . 09

I need a vacation. And if I had known earlier that you could rent out The Guest House and Cricket Pavilion on India Hick’s propoerty Hibiscus Hill on Harbour Island, I would have thought about planning a trip sooner. They both look heavenly. Instead I will make do by drooling over all the photos in […]
