If you aren’t on Instagram yet…. GET WITH IT! It’s my favorite social media app by MILES and it’s such a fun way to chronicle your life in filtered, beautiful images. Here are some things that went down in my world this week:
I had dinner at fellow designer Mally Skok’s INSANE home. I mean, it’s 100% my dream house….
Her dining room has upholstered walls. This style is what I would call Traditional Badass.
Need a close-up? Thought so. Her fabrics are awesome, but this one happens to be Quadrille Contessa.
I got myself a faux bust for the bar. Goddess of the Drink. All hail.
My new line with Jill Rosenwald fresh outta the kiln with the cutest little lower case monogram!
Part of the line…. I happen to be super into the cream and sugar set. They’ll be up for purchase in a couple weeks and you’ll be the first to know!!!!
Frozen yogurt break, nerds.
I took the ferry to the Hamptons. It was peaceful and reminded me that I am SO much happier and calmer by the ocean. Good thing my parents are building a gorgeous home by the shore right now! #movingbackhome #nomoreemptynest!
So happy how these Ballard barstools came back from our upholsterer for out Hampton’s job! We did some custom pieced upholstery to get this look and it’s pretty awesome.
I got to visit the new Serena & Lily store in Wainscott. It’s as adorable as you might imagine, but this wall o’ art was my fave.
So many people commented on how cute this top was. It’s cheap and you can get it here.
I babysat for my Mom’s new 11 week old Golden puppy Barney last weekend. He bit a hole in the above cute shirt, but because that face is so smushy and amazing I don’t care.
The view from their porch. This is not England, but it could be.
While there I went to the nearby antique shops and saw this lucite goodness. I paced, I pondered… and I left empty handed.
But then I went back and bought the (now known to be) Thorpe candlesticks, which I had the intention of selling. But then I put them on my mantle and….. scene. Welcome to your new home, crazy pretzel, lucite candlesticks. Would it be so bad if I try to get the metal part brass plated??
Then my vintage Brown Jordan patio set that was my paternal grandmothers came back from the shop all freshly enameled in black and ready for my patio (which starts soon). Planning on topping those seats with black and white wide strip cushions and adding a white umbrella! Perfect, and meaningful.
Yesterday we were setting up for a book photoshoot all day today! I am SO,SO obsessed with this tablestop setting I created- especially that Juliska Country Estate china. I think I need it (in blue). Those ombre napkins were under $4 at Crate and Barrel too!
PHEW. I’m exhausted. But more to do…. Stay tuned!!!
