Heavenly in Hampshire

11 . 04 . 20

Most of my ancestors came to America from England in the 17th-century. Sometimes, I think about what my life would be like if they hadn’t left. Would I have a lovely accent and live in house filled with chintz ? I sort of wish I was in this heavenly house in Hampshire right now instead […]

I’m excited for this week because there are a few new movies debuting online including Rebecca on Netflix today, On the Rocks on Apple TV on Friday, and The Undoing on HBO on Sunday. I watched the adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier’s novel Rebecca today starring Lily James, Armie Hammer, and Kristin Scott Thomas […]

During quarantine, I would often have insomnia and wake up at 3:00am and doomscroll Instagram. One of the accounts that helped me relax belonged to Jasper Conran in Dorset, England. He would post videos of his morning walk with his dog Minnow which were incredibly beautiful and relaxing and brought me so much comfort. That’s […]

Someone online asked if we really needed another version of Jane Austen’s Emma but this one is the colorful, amusing, charming, and delicious version we didn’t know we needed. Time declared that it “strikes just the right balance of modern and authentic” and I have to agree. Since my first post on Emma last week, […]

The newest film version of the 1815 Jane Austen classic Emma hits theaters in the United States tonight. I’m very excited to see the movie based on all the beautiful images I’ve seen so far from director Autumn de Wilde’s adaptation of Emma. According to AD, “de Wilde explained to her production crew that the […]

I was supposed to decorate my apartment for Christmas on Sunday but my gift guide took so long to put together that I didn’t have time. Seeing everyone’s houses decorated on Instagram is giving me major fomo now and none more so than Fairgreen Farm which is the home of Amanda Brooks. It’s just been […]

I posted about Badminton House last week without realizing it would be featured in the December 2019 issue of Vogue. Plum Sykes talked to the Duchess of Beaufort as she prepared for a weekend of parties and houseguests. Whereas most people have a few people stay in their one or two guest rooms, she was […]

How are you surviving Daylight Saving Time? I love the sunlight in the morning but I had to turn on every light in my apartment at 5:00pm which was depressing. I heard that you should go out in the sun for at least 10 minutes every day for vitamin D and to prevent Seasonal Affective […]

Instagram is the best travel agent and no one has made me want to plan a trip to visit the English countryside more than Mish Tworkowski. The fine jewelry designer of MISH has been posting beautiful bucolic scenes of gardens across England for the part two weeks. I can’t wait to see how this inspiration […]

For Sale in Suffolk

01 . 22 . 19

I posted about the English Country Home of Jeremy Langmead and Simon Rayner almost four years ago. Since then, Jeremy moved from Christie’s to Mr. Porter and the duo moved into another home in Suffolk with interior design by Susan Deliss which is now for sale because they have a new home project in the […]

Beaverbrook Hotel

01 . 10 . 19

The Beaverbrook Hotel is a luxury British country house hotel in Surrey that makes me want to book a flight to England immediately. Beaverbrook takes it’s name from Lord Beaverbrook, William Maxwell Aitken, 1st Baron Beaverbrook, a “Canadian-British newspaper publisher and backstage politician who was an influential figure in British media and politics of the first half of […]

Ven House Now and Then

House & Garden has a lovely holiday feature on Ven House, in the December 2018 issue. It’s in the article that you learn that the house has had a succession of owners in recent years and been previously featured in World of Interiors in October 2011 when it was owned by Jasper Conran and in […]
