Although summer is not over, fall is on the horizon…which means it’s time to kick up the fireplace. Where should we store the wood?
Even though summer is winding down we are still thinking of ways to squeeze in a pool. Small pools, narrow lap pools & mini plunge pools give just enough sex to chic up the back yard.
With summer approaching we cannot stop thinking and posting about pools. So chic how these decks go right up to the pool waters edge. Fashion.
The new local hangout for us. Love how the old warehouse meets the new glass building. Read more about it and see all of the pics on the NYTimes site.
It is amazing what a little green (real or fake) can do to a spot. Backyards, signs, walls…can’t even tell the difference but love the look.
Currently obsessed with this sofa (this month). Thinking it would look great in a super modern monochromatic setting. Find details and pricing here.
Old fashioned has been going strong in New York for it seems like eternity. Evan and Oliver Haslegrave are the brothers behind hOmE an interior, furniture and lighting design firm.

There is something sort of chic about a touch of retro for the garden and pool area.
So it has been a few since we posted- a bit over a month to be exact. Clearly we are busy folk however the summer in NY has arrived and it is hot. Hence this pool post and though it isn’t our first (def not the last) these pools are all screaming country house. Perhaps...
Loving this cute little “shack” weekend retreat for a DC family. Situated in the mountains of West Virginia on 27 acres. The space was designed by Broadhurst Architects.
Living this post from yatzer. Alketas Pazis has this amazing temporary showroom, connected to his living space, to showcase his love for collecting all things old and interesting. A quote “A design has deeper meaning when it is influenced from the past and reinterpreted into the future”. Very chic.
This post doesn’t have a ton of information but these are just some insanely amazing homes all constructed from concrete. Cold austere sharp angled grey concrete- How can we not be obsessed- total and utter fashion. Though we love rustic and warmth every now then severity calls our name… and after all we did...
