I don't know if you guys noticed that I've been MIA for a week or so - I know you get a lot of emails and may not notice when these don't appear. Everything is fine, but it's been crazy with the kids finishing school. I'll tell you more about my hectic life next week. But for now....

Do you all follow Architectural Digest on Pinterest (here)? My favorite thing that they do, well besides the celebrity homes maybe, is the monthly "most popular rooms" feature. These are all rooms from the last few months of most pinned rooms and I love them all. Enjoy!


Arcologica, Ltd.

Do you all know Arcologica's work? It was founded by Jorge and Martin Sosa, and has several designers now. Their work is not your average architecture and interior work. It's unique and, in my opinion, very interesting. I hope you enjoy!

The Most Beautiful Dinnerware and More From MacKenzie-Childs, Summer 2017

Wednesday, June 14, 2017


The very kind people at MacKenzie-Childs contacted me recently to ask me to review some of their products. It was like a dream come true, and I of course said yes. They were incredibly generous, sending me these four dinnerware sets (chargers, plates, salad plates, and bread plates). Look how gorgeous they are:

What I Love Wednesday: All-White French Inspired Rooms

Tuesday, June 6, 2017


First I wanted to show you some clippings from my backyard.... aren't they pretty? I love June, especially early June before the teens get out of school and start crowding up the beaches! I have lots of other bushes to clip, but I'm afraid of the poison ivy, which my got last weekend doing yard work. There is just SO much of it here and it's hard to see it all. Anyway, here they are, and then the rooms.

The Case For White Walls

Wednesday, May 31, 2017


I'm still a huge fan of white walls, and still have most in the rooms in my house painted in whites and off-whites. What do you think? It's definitely been the style for a while now, but I'm wondering if you all are sick of it or still as much of a fan as I am? Take a look.....

How in the world can it be Wednesday already?? (Ok it's technically Tuesday night but most of you will see this by email in the morning). And how can it be officially summer!? I can't wait to bring out the white clothes, if only the weather would change. I hope you all enjoyed the weekend, and also that I have time to write more substantive posts soon :)

House Updates: Bathroom and Back Yard

The only thing I haven't shown you in my bathroom is the shade, which arrived last week, and the mirrors, which came the week before. This room is impossible for me to photograph well because I am always shooting into the light. I've tried many times, and here is the best I could get. The shade is a spa green:
