Summer Shopping

June 26, 2019

It has officially become the point of summer where it is just too hot to do anything. I have been prepping for some summer trips and entertaining, and with that comes a little shopping. While it isn’t practical, it’s just more fun having a few new things to bring on a trip! I haven’t done a favorites post

Luxe Litchfield Listing

June 20, 2019

I love a luxe listing, and the fact I was able to see this estate in Litchfield was an absolute ‘pinch myself” moment. It is not everyday that you see a home complete with a museum worthy gallery, a pool house, a guest house, a caretaker’s house and 51 acres of gorgeous grounds. At a price tag

Litchfield County

June 19, 2019

While staying at the Mayflower Inn & Spa, my friend and I visited some wonderful home shops in New Preston and went off for a lovely lunch. We could have stayed at the Inn the entire time, but I thoroughly enjoyed getting to see more of Litchfield County.

TPB Review: Mayflower Inn & Spa

June 18, 2019

Palm Beach Pretty

I absolutely adored an image posted by Jim Howard on instagram of a Palm Beach project his wife worked on. Of course, his wife is the fabulous Phoebe Howard. I immediately knew I needed to see more of this lovely home. Luckily, Veranda Magazine beat us to the punch. They photographed this charming and colorfully

Staying Afloat

June 3, 2019

Pool season is upon us, and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t know about you, but I prefer sitting by a pool than just about anywhere else. If the ocean is in the background of a pool, that is even more perfect. I rounded up some of my favorite pools and floats to get you

Parisian Pretty

May 29, 2019

There are some homes that simply take your breath away.  I must say,  David Jimenez’s Paris apartment featured in Traditional Home was one of them. It is a beautiful mix of Parisian architecture and timeless accents. Lots of blacks, camels, and whites create a timeless color palette, while lush layers provide the perfect infusion of texture.

Chic Memorial Day Sale: Serena & Lily

May 22, 2019

The one thing I am ready for more than summer is the Serena & Lily Memorial Day Sale! I just bought my new coffee table from them (see picture at bottom of this post), and I must say I am impressed with the quality and delivery. Next up, fresh outdoor furniture for my parent’s house

If you can believe it, Memorial Day weekend is already upon us! In my opinion, this marks the official  start of summer reading. However, if you are like me, reading is a year-round event. Here are some book highlights from my friends, my mom (big reader), word-of-mouth, and yours truly.
