“I like to hang out at the house at the weekend and read by the pool. It’s such a peaceful escape away from the city.”

—Bjorn Iooss

#MCM: Photographer Bjorn Iooss at Home In Montauk on @SavvyHome

Technically I’m a day late for #ManCrushMonday—but I doubt I’ll see anyone complaining. Who couldn’t use a little eye-candy on a Tuesday?

I spotted this portrait of fashion photographer Bjorn Iooss at home in Montauk on Mr.Porter and I just had to share. I love reading about the real Montauk. The one that existed before the crowds, the status and before it became known as a party destination in the Hamptons. The way I remember it, there was no Surf Lodge or Ruschmeyer’s; no boozy afternoons at Sloppy Tuna or late nights at Memory Motel… Gurney’s was certainly not a hot spot.

His family house in Montauk seems to accommodate just the right type of laid-back comfort and low-key attitude that Montauk once was; sandy feet, lazy mornings and all. Bjorn shares the house with his parents; famous Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss and his wife, painter Eva Iooss; and his brother Christopher, director of photography at Golf Digest. His neighbors: Julian Schnabel and celebrated photographer Bruce Weber. Not a bad spot to getaway.

Gab Loves: Boho Chic

Gab Loves: Boho Chic on @SavvyHome

Boho chic is having a moment. This summer’s “it” look is a polished effortless elegance. It’s a passe-partout look that fits equally well at the farmer’s market, at a formal luncheon, at a music festival or for an evening at the Surf LodgeGladiator sandals are essential, as are flowy skirts and crisp white tops paired with this summer’s “it” bag.

The boho chic look translates into the home with vintage rugs, leather trimmed furniture, mid-century brutalist lighting and pops of color. Above are a few of my favorite boho chic picks.

The Weekender: 06.26.15

Baron's Cove in Sag Harbor by Amy Stone • The Weekender on @SavvyHome

After a few weeks spent with the pedal to the metal, the inevitable happened: I got a cold. Blame the long work days, late nights, travels, or the couple of times I clearly should have brought a jacket with me… Whatever it was, my body did not like it. And so this week was on the quieter side… Dinners with girlfriends, hang outs on the rooftops, but mostly just recuperating. My apartment needed a bit of love too and it was nice to finally take the time to unpack and get organized.

But I had so much fun at my country house last weekend, that I’m packing up and going again this weekend. It’s rare that the whole family is there all at once, but when we are we have a blast: endless tennis matches, big cook-offs, board games, long walks around the lake… It’s just what the doctor ordered and I can’t wait for round two this weekend.

I’m Obsessed with these New Arrivals in the Savvy Home Shop

New Arrivals in the Savvy Home Shop

I’ve been scouring the web for clients recently and came across so many new products that I was dying to add to the Savvy Home shop. I finally added a first batch and there will be more to come! These days I’m drawn to light periwinkle tones mixed with deep warm neutrals and mic-century lines (that chandelier is everything).
