It's August 15 so I am trying to savor every last bit of summer. Luckily, all of my vacations are planned for now until the end of August. Last weekend, we were in Nantucket. This weekend, I leave for Mexico with some girlfriends.
Cheers to the long summer days spent with those you love!
Daily, I try to keep it simple.
For me, living in a city like New York can be overwhelming and exhausting. When I come home at night, I want to unwind by sitting quietly over dinner with my husband. I want my home to be a space that brings me joy the moment I open the door.
This home in South Carolina can easily be described, in my own words, as simple. We can all overthink. I am guilty of it, daily. We also tend overdecorate, overbuild, and clutter our homes with items that do not serve us our bring us joy to fill the "space". Why? Instead, how about we try to keep it simple. Let's build a home with items that have meaning and tell a story.
Right now, it seems as if the entire world is in pure chaos. Nothing seems simple outside of our home (or maybe even in our home). Today, let's make a change. First stop, your home. Clear out those cluttered shelves. Keep only items that bring joy. Take that joy with you outside your home and share it. Repeat daily.
(P.s. I hear this book is phenomenal!)
Summer seems to always be a busy time of year. It is my favorite, and Wallace adds a new level of excitement every weekend when we take him to the beach. Thank god I have a dog that loves the water as much as I do!
One of my favorite stores is the Southampton Mecox Gardens.
I love to go antiquing on Long Island. I seem to always find great New England buys, like these butter dishes for lobster!
Danny and I take Wallace to the ocean early in the morning to have our coffee and throw the ball for Wallace. He loves it!
Thank you House Beautiful magazine for featuring my favorite pink paint color!
My favorite pink is Fine Paints of Europe E31. FYI, Fine Paints of Europe has the best paint if you want to achieve a super high gloss finish!
