Make An Entrance

 Your home is your escape from the world and should bring you comfort from the moment you walk in the door. Whether you are coming home to a place in the city, country, or beach your foyer should be a true reflection of your personal style. Browse through a few foyers that inspire me and pay attention to the key pieces that pull the space together: console, bench, mirror and lighting. Artwork is also a great alternative to a mirror, and wall treatments are great for city apartments to add modern visual interest without adding artwork.

Family Day Trip


One of our favorite nearby spots to visit for a day trip is Rowayton, CT. We love stopping into the town's classic market to enjoy a coffee (or one of their delicious sandwiches for lunch) while overlooking the boats on picturesque Five Mile River, and afterwards taking Dapper, our puppy, for a walk around the town's idyllic streets. We always feel relaxed and at peace near the water, which allows us to have some quality family time without the hustle & bustle of the big city. Scroll through some pics of the market as well as a few of our dream houses in the Rowayton/Darien, CT area.

Summertime in Rhode Island


As you may know, I recently celebrated a milestone birthday with my family at Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. We were very happy with our selection as it was truly a magical experience, from start to finish, at this romantic, seaside property. Our room overlooked both the croquet court and ocean and, off in the distance, we could see Taylor Swift's mansion (gorgeous!). Festive balloons were waiting for us upon arrival and the front desk manager cheerfully greeted our puppy, Dapper, and remembered his name throughout our stay. 

Although I loved the beach and idyllic summertime surroundings, my favorite part of our stay was my birthday dinner at Coast, which featured an incredible four-course tasting menu with unparalleled service. This was my favorite meal I can remember and my husband even worked with the dining room manager to prepare a special marble cake for me at the end of our dinner.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through a few of my favorite photos from this wonderful birthday celebration and I highly recommend you visit Ocean House yourself this summer!
