I told this story but it bears repeating. Interior designer David Lawrence of Carlos David and I worked for the same interior designer but not at the same time. He had gone out on his own by the time I arrived and one of his projects in Bridgehampton was published on the cover and featured […]

I’m spending part of my vacation next week in Sag Harbor. I can’t wait to see all my friends and what’s new in town. A few stores have moved including Bloom whose long time location was purchased by a designer. She moved close by and I’m sure it’s just as chic as the old store […]

Another company getting creative during quarantine is Goop. Gwyneth Paltrow usually models her own G. Label but this time she had her husband Brad Falchuk photograph her in the new G. Label Core Collection at their house in the Hamptons. Her look-alike daughter Apple was employed as a stand in model to set up the […]

Sag Harbor Stunner

06 . 29 . 20

I always look at real estate listings when I visit Sag Harbor. When I was trying to find a certain house, I came across photos of another house on Main Street that I pass multiple times each day when I walk to and from Baron’s Cove. This one is not for sale but it was […]

Since it doesn’t look like I’m going to be able to go out to the Hamptons or anywhere else this summer, I am starting to think about lightening up my home decor for warmer weather. It’s time to put away the velvet pillows and cashmere throw blankets and swap them with lighter linen and cotton […]

Perfect Panacea

It looks like things won’t open up in New York in time to allow me to make my annual June trip to Sag Harbor. I’m sad but I’ve resigned myself to the fact that we won’t be able to travel for awhile. Until then, I’ll live vicariously through the East Hampton home of Kate Rheinstein […]

I ordered the September 2019 issue of Vogue from Amazon last week and was rewarded with a feature of Moda Operandi co-founder Lauren Santo Domingo’s house in Southampton, New York. Well, it’s not actually the whole house. The gardens designed by Miranda Brooks, which were probably photographed at their height last summer, take center stage […]

I’m not sure when or if I’ll make it out east to tour the Hamptons Designer Showhouse so I was very happy that Alessandra Branca was kind enough to share these exclusive photos of her chic room. The room and color story of blue and coral mixed with natural textures was inspired by Hamptons beach […]

Glover House

06 . 19 . 19

Another house I love on Main Street in Sag Harbor is just coming up for sale. The Glover House was built by master craftsman Benjamin Glover in 1810 in the classic tradition and flair of a true Captain’s house. In 1850, the neighboring carriage house was combined with the house for Glover’s daughter to live […]

One of the highlights of my trip to Sag Harbor was getting to see my friend Chris Kann‘s charming Sag Harbor cottage. I’ve seen photo on Instagram but it’s even better in person. I arrived around 4:00pm on Friday and the light was so beautiful. We drank rosé in the yard and watched the cardinals […]

Sea Roost

No one does beach and nautical chic like photographer Matt Albiani and Ron Brand. Matt has an entire book devoted to the subject, Lifeguard on Duty, and the duo own the Mate Gallery store in Montecito curated with maritime accessories, book, objects, photography, and more. Now you can experience their aesthetic in a summer rental […]

What a week! There seemed to be something off about this week which culminated in my website going down last night. It was due to the fact that all the domain renewal notices went to my Spam folder instead of my Inbox. This has definitely been a lesson to make sure I have important dates […]

If you’ve ever driven through East Hampton, then you’ve probably seen this beautiful white house that sits at the intersection of Main Street and Woods Lane. It’s currently on the market for $12.5 Million which means we can all see inside now. The house at 6 Woods Lane was completely renovated in 1992 but was […]

Today marks the unofficial start of summer and chances are you are going away this long holiday weekend. I’m in the Hamptons and there are a lot of exciting new pop up shops opening this weekend. There are also fun events happening in New York for those of you visiting the city or when you […]

I have a bad habit of going on a trip and posting all my adventures on Instagram but never following up with a travel guide on the blog. Well, those days are changing. I am going to try to post a recap after every trip and go back to some of my old travels but […]

For Rent in Sag Harbor

06 . 11 . 18

After a brief rain shower, the sun came out and I decided to take along walk in Sag Harbor to appreciate and photograph all the charming homes. I happened to take another look at the book Out East: Houses and Gardens of the Hamptons by Jennifer Ash Rudick when I got home and recognized one […]

One of the places I always stop in Sag Harbor is Bloom. Except for the one time I went out with a guy I was dating who rushed me through shopping and I missed saying hello to owner Mona Nerenberg. She was so disappointed that I vowed it would never happened again. The first time […]
