Today you can find me over on Clos-ette’s blog, Clos-ette Too, where I’m excited to be the first blogger featured in their new series “Clos-ette Covets.” I hope you’ll stop by and check out the items I’d like to add to my closet.
While I’m at it, I’d like to add one of Clos-ette’s custom designs to my wish list. All those beautiful pieces need somewhere equally beautiful to live, right? Adding to the dream home wish list…
Maybe it’s my Cape Cod roots, but I can never resist a good beach house. Especially one with a blue and white palette. Hopefully you’ll forgive me then for sharing another Southampton beauty (see Lily Maddock’s home from last week).
This home was designed by Carrier and Company, a new to me design firm whose portfolio includes the offices of Anna Wintour and Jason Wu in addition to some of the most beautiful residential interiors I’ve laid eyes upon. Definitely take a peek!
The relaxed fabrics, white washed floors, natural fiber rugs, and scattering of blue and white porcelain give this home an air of casual elegance. It’s like a real life Nancy Meyers set, right?
P.S for more photos revisit the January 2012 issue of Vogue. I might just order a copy off of ebay for the tear sheets!
Leave it to Jamie Meares to have stationery so fabulous it inspires its own post! The monogrammed headdress notecard that accompanied my surprise package from Furbish (talk about a good mail day!) stopped me in my tracks and set my mind spinning.
A quick glance through my inspiration files and I realized I’ve been hoarding quite a few images of Native American inspired art. The Fritz Scholder painting is by far my favorite. Can you imagine what an impact that hot pink canvas would make in a room? I’d love to see it done. Thanks again to Jamie for always being a source of inspiration!
Did you know you can purchase prints of Scott Schuman’s (of The Sartorialist fame) portraits via Net-A-Porter? I didn’t until stumbling upon them yesterday and I have to admit, I’m pretty jazzed about it. The shots are from his latest book, The Sartorialist: Closer, and I think they’d make perfect gifts.
At only $40 you could buy one as a gift and one for yourself (because I know you thought ‘but I want one!’ when I said gift.) I wouldn’t mind adding the Anna Dello Russo print to my closet. I think she’d be a pretty great reminder to keep things fresh and fun.
