Connecticut Event & A Fab Local Home!

I wanted to let any Connecticut and New York based designers to know that I’ll be doing a fun talk next week on Thursday May 7th at the Wakefield Design Center for their To the Trade Market Day! We’ll be chatting with the amazing Stacy Kunstel about using social media, blogging and the interwebs to grow your brand and my little story behind taking EOS from a little journal to a best-selling book! Click here for the whole itinerary and RSVP to the address below to attend! I’ll also be doing a book signing afterwards too!

And while we’re speaking about Connecticut and design I wanted to share these images of the work (and homes) of Lyme, CT based designer Gretchen Mann. Sadly, Gretchen passed away this year, but her work shows such a timeless, enduring quality.  I adore how she modernized her historic cottage home and grew it into a family compound that both respects it’s roots and celebrates modernity too. Take a peek…

A Local Gem.

Before I get into pretty places and lovely dinners, I want to just say how devastating and heartbreaking the news coming out of Nepal is. I hope everyone considers donating a little bit to a valued and established charity to help people there get back on their feet- there is a list here from Time Magazine of six great options if you are looking for one.

And Sharpe Hill also has a pretty amazing restaurant too!  It’s all very colonial and cozy, with only about 10-12 tables, and housed in a barn building with whitewashing vaulted, beamed ceilings and a double sided fireplace in the center.

Fashion Friday: A Look I Love & One I Hate.

I am ALL about simple, elegant, timeless style and this picture just encapsulates that kind of look perfect for this “chilly one minute, warm the next” time of year.

My Catalog Life.

This is SUPER random, but you know when a really well curated catalog shows up in your mailbox and the pictures in it make you question your life choices? Am I the only one here?  The other day I got this random catalog, Guideboat, and as I sat in my sunroom looking at it with my “their life looks awesome” goggles on, I had a thought.  One that proclaimed “We really should canoe more.” I balked at myself- WHAT? Canoe? And then my thought process tumbled down a rabbit hole a little something like this…
