Sponsor Welcome: White Fences Inn (& Giveaway!)

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!

Sponsor Welcome: Lafco New York

I’m so excited to welcome Lafco New York to the EOS family!  I have been buying their candles for years as gifts and for myself, and now they are an official EOS supporter- pretty cool.  And to welcome them to our little crew, I’m sharing their new collection launching today called Present Perfect.  Beautiful packaging, great scents and a variety of products (I’m partial to the candles and hand soap!)  The scents are hand blended in France and Italy from pure essential oils and many ingredients are locally sources- the candles, for instance, are made from wax made and hand-poured in New England.

Sponsor Welcome (Back!): Felix Doolittle

I’m always so happy when long time sponsors of EOS keep coming back to us to work together. Felix Doolittle is a special one because it’s based in my hometown of Newton, MA, and I love supporting local small businesses. Not to mention I use their address labels all the time and think their work is really lovely and unique! The artistry of the illustrations is so gorgeous and charming, don’t you think?  Their goods make awesome gifts for just about anyone, and right now you can get 20% off your order with the code FELIX20! Happy Wednesday!

Here’s a peek at some new items as well as some personal faves of mine!

These new illustrations are so fantastic, I particularly like the animal one which are a great alternative to the animal photographs that a lot of people are using in nurseries!

Timeless Classics from Williams Sonoma Home.

When working with our clients, we have a key “library” of online retailers we like to source from.  Some are very affordable, others a little more expensive, but all offering a wide variety of styles we mix and match to create custom looks for each space we work on.  One of our most consistent sources is Williams-Sonoma Home.  Higher-end than company siblings Pottery Barn and West Elm, this resource is wonderful for all traditional-meets-modern pieces that will last the test of time (both in style and quality).  Their styled spaces online are fantastic for inspiration too. So I was psyched when they asked to partner with me to show off my most favorite selections-from cashmere throws to canopy beds!  Plus right now they are offering 20% off bedding and bath and a clearance sale with up to 75% off.

Fashion Friday: The Joy of Holiday Dressing with J. McLaughlin

Many of you who follow me on Instagram asked about my outfit in a picture I posted of us on Thanksgiving.   This holiday we decided to do the “casual dress up” for our small, cold Connecticut turkey day in fabulous finds from J. McLaughlin.  I always trend towards preppy during holiday season, something about it brings out the Miss Porter’s graduate in me. I opted for an amazingly comfortable and flattering zip neck dress (that I now want in every color) with boots and a hint of fur and Andrew went the typical “dude” route in a plaid flannel paired with a a zip neck sweater and grey dress pants.  We’ll probably rock something very similar for Christmas too…
