Fingers crossed that Jet Blue is back up and running for my flight to the Dominican Republic this morning. After dealing the the “polar vortex” of single digit temperatures in New York, 80 degrees is going to feel like a dream. I’ll be meeting up with my friend Abigail at her family’s resort Hotel La […]
I’m on holiday out East this week but I wouldn’t mind spending next August in Marbella, Spain where this beautiful home is located. It was featured in Nuevo Estilo in Spanish so I can’t tell you anything about it but the photos are inspiring without any commentary. Enjoy!
I’m not usually that impressed with the homes that the New York Times features but this 17th-century chateau had me at hello. It was a bit run down when Giuseppe Laviani and his family bought it for $500,000. They put $500,000 worth of renovations into the 9,000 square foot chateau on 20 acres. To a […]
A long holiday weekend in the Hamptons is great until you start seeing everyone’s instagram pics from the Mediterranean. Makes me want to rethink my travel plans for next year. Then I came across the photo above that Minnie Mortimer pinned on Pinterest and found that it was from a house in Anacapri that the […]
Whatever you are doing this long holiday weekend, I hope you are having as much fun as Brigitte Bardot and Alain Delon are having in these photos from 1968. They were taken on the yacht of Eric Tabarly and at lunch with famed music producer Eddie Barclay. Don’t they just epitomize effortless chic? Bon weekend! […]
I’m currently trying to figure out how I can spend the whole of August traveling around Provence starting with Domaine de la Baume. The property in Tourtour which opens July 5th used to be the home of expressionist painter Bernard Buffet in the 1950’s. It looks like an absolute oasis to this overworked city girl. A […]
This is my last Jacques Grange post. I swear. But I couldn’t post about his guest houses in Portugal without sharing the one that he actually uses while on holiday. This one is definitely my favorite and the day bed is going in my beach house folder immediately. It’s perfection.
If yesterday’s guest house on Jacques Grange’s property wasn’t your style, maybe this one will be more to your liking. I love all the fabulous striped cotton rugs and textiles. But I probably wouldn’t even see them because I’d be sitting outside on one of the chic rattan chairs all day. A girl can dream.
“Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.” – William James August is when most Europeans take a month long holiday. I envy them and vow each year to do the same. It hasn’t quite happened yet […]
