I’m happy to welcome our new sponsor, White Fences Inn in Water Mill, NY to the EOS family today! Actually, welcome them back in a way, since the former owners of a Kennebunkport inn who were a longtime sponsor are the new owners of this Hamptons property! They bought this old home and renovated and added an new addition and just opened in late summer- take a peek and then enter the giveaway at the end of the post!
If you’ve picked up my book you’ve seen that I have used several of Amanda Talley’s paintings in my projects. Something about her style just works so well with both traditional and modern decor and clients always seem to adore the pieces (most often commissions) that she creates. And she’s certainly made quite the name for herself in the design world, and I’ve seen the values on her work continue to skyrocket to this day. A few of the spaces I’ve designed with her work:

Finding sources for original, unique art that are relatively affordable is one of my job’s biggest challenges. There are chain stores that offer mass-market prints and Etsy (which can be a total crapshoot quality-wise)- but not a lot of galleries or websites dedicated to the curation of unique and non-intimidating art. Which is why I am so happy to have Citizen Atelier as a new sponsor. Their gorgeous site, run by Alessandra Salituri, a PR consultant and art dealer from Montreal, is a mix of price points, mediums and tastes. You can pick up a great photographic print or splurge on an original painting. Take a peek…(and enter our giveaway!)

You guys know all about the bag I designed with Gigi New York, but recently I received it in tan and white and I’ve been carrying it every single day- not just because it’s my own design but because it’s the perfect size for my lifestyle. And the colors are spot on for summer outfits- case in point, it is the only bag I brought on my trip to The Greenbrier this summer.
Check it out!
