Summer Living

Things I have been meaning to post: Meg Ryan's home located in Martha's Vineyard as featured in Elle Decor. An absolutely beautiful, functional coastal home. 

The kitchen is a great mix of antique and new. Comfort and Utility. Whitewash is welcoming in any water side retreat. In planning our celebration this Forth of July weekend, I find myself referring back to these photographs again and again. Great job Meg!

 Speaking of mixing old with the new. Our Friends at Beacon Hill in Chicago recently sent me this photograph. Our clients are very intrigued by the crystal cocktail table mixed with traditional upholstery. All of this talk lead to conversations about mixing acrylic furniture with farm tables. How could you go wrong?

  Finally, one of our favorite seasonal reads in my house. Carloyne Roehm's Summer Notebook. A workbook of sorts that shouldn't be missed, full of tips and inspiration for the garden, hearth, traditions and home. Take a glance at Amazon.
