Finishing My Daughter's Room



Despite the fact that I have some amazing professional photos (top by Nicole Cohen and below by Leslie Unruh for One Kings Lane) of my younger daughter's room, it's still far from finished. For the past few weeks I've been frantically searching for the right pieces to pull this room together. She's away in camp for a few more days, and I'm hoping to surprise her with a room that looks a lot more complete (and functional-she needs a dresser badly) than when she left.

I'm close to ordering her a white dresser. I'm considering the one below and also this taller, narrower option from West Elm.  I've got a good sense of what she likes and dislikes (I'm honoring her request to have only plain white blinds on her windows) and with that in mind I've pulled together this little mood board to motivate myself (and in the event it doesn't get done in time...to show my daughter when she gets home).

Beach Life


We've reached the part of the summer where both my husband and I wonder out loud why we don't own a beach house.  This year we're actually giving the whole idea some serious thought. Its so exciting to think we might one day be beach home owners.

Right now, the daydreaming phase is the most fun... we're wandering around the beaches of Rhode Island admiring the coastal architecture and tossing around different aesthetics. Coastal modern? Traditional New England? The choices are endless...and all of them, when done just right, appeal to me. Lately I've been loving the clean mix of modern and country design elements. This house from Australia's Homes To Love, perfectly captures the essence of a relaxing, weekend retreat.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top 21 Picks for the home

photo by Nicole Cohen



Last week was all about my favorite fall fashion from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale - today I'm all about the home portion of this epic sale. Since so many of the same exact pieces I have in my home, (like this brass tumbler above and this white marble soap dish from my kitchen) are all currently marked down as part of the big sale, I thought I'd create a round up of my top 21 picks....many of which I own and love! Click through each image to go right through to the Nordstrom sale.

Home Tour: Bridgehampton Getaway


Today I'm sharing one of my absolute favorite beach houses. Spotted years ago over on Veranda, designed by Vincent Wolf, everything about this home embodies summer. From the blue and white color scheme inside to the beautiful hydrangeas and the lovely gray shingled exterior.
