Sponsor Welcome: Hudson Boston

April 23rd, 2014

I have long frequented Hudson, my most favorite home shop in Boston, not only for myself and my clients. Jill Goldberg, the shop’s owner and interior designer, has THE most impeccable taste.  Her store installations, changed seasonally, are always so perfectly spot on I end up leaving a visit to the shop with lots of ideas and desires for my own space.  So when they asked to become an EOS sponsor I was super thrilled, a more natural fit than this I cannot think of!  Here are some shot of the store’s spring look…

And here are some of my current favorites in the shop (you can shop online as well, but if and when you are in Boston’s South End you NEED to go!)

I also saw these new pillows on their Instagram and LOOOOOOOVE them.  The gold zipper detail is perfection, no?

Beautiful Boxwood

April 22nd, 2014

As I get used to having a home with a yard that needs landscaping I am starting to become more educated about plants and how to use them properly.  Being a busy person who doesn’t have the greenest of thumbs I constantly am looking for plants that make a big impact with as little maintenance as possible. Enter the boxwood.

I love the sculptural essence of this plant and the modern yet traditional vibe that boxwood can take based on how it’s potted and shaped. From using it in the yard to in pots by a front door, it’s the perfect way to fill your beds and outdoor space with big impact greenery. Here’s some inspiration…

I Want To Go To There: The Dean Hotel

April 21st, 2014

I have grown up incredibly close to Providence, RI but to be honest, I think I’ve visited only enough times to count on one hand.  For some reason, when I was growing up Providence had a”Boston’s forgotten step-child” kind of vibe (unless you got into Brown, which I did not), but lately I’ve been seeing SO MUCH awesome press about amazing things blooming in the small city.  I am going to absolutely have to make a pilgrimage this summer!  One place I would love to see (and stay at) would be The Dean Hotel design by ASH NYC. It’s an incredible, modern take of New England Traditionalism. Take a peek! There’s SO MUCH good stuff here to be inspired by for your own home:

Fashion Friday: Spring Bags

April 18th, 2014

It’s time to start dusting off our spring clothes and accessories- and perhaps pick up something fresh and new for the new season.  I an particular need a new spring bag and in my window shopping I’ve noticed a few popular trends for the season- grey and blush pink leather, woven and raffia accents or entire bags, tassel details, structured silhouettes and if course, tons of gold hardware.

Here are some of my current favorites from my favorite department store, Nordstrom.  I personally would pretty much die for the  Chloe Medium Marcie as I find it to be the perfect bag- not too big, but big enough to carry lots of stuff, handles to carry on your arm (also long enough to pop on your shoulder) but with a longer strap too to wear it cross-body or just over the shoulder. Also it has the perfect number of pockets. I like to go visit her whenever I’m in the store. :) The Anemone Pink, Cashmere Grey and Nut are perrrrfect colors for spring too! Someday….someday….. :)

Give Mom A Laugh.

April 17th, 2014

Laughter is truly the best medicine, and a great gift.  So why not prepare yourself and order up a funny card for your Mom, wife, sister or friend this year?  As I’ve said before, a truly hilarious card is one of my favorite things (I buy them and save them for the perfect recipient/ moment- I’ve had this one in my drawer for like a year, this line always cracks me up too!) Making someone smile and laugh is so underrated. Try it.
