You guys, I think this might be the first weekend I spend at home since May… MAY! Between spending quality family time at my country house and jetting to NYC every other weekend, I still haven’t really taken advantage of my rooftop pools, or anything else the city has to offer in the summer.
To be honest, I completely need this low-key weekend to recharge and catch up on boring things like household chores, sleep and accounting (fun, I know). I still have a couple of fun things planned on the agenda: heading to the Osheaga music festival tomorrow to see faves like Robin Schulz and Kygo; and hitting the green on Sunday to practice my golf game. It could be worse!
Don’t miss Wisteria’s furniture sale! Enjoy up to 30% off on hundreds of items. I’m obsessed with this chair and this mid-century table.
In a quaint town where he spends his own summer weekends, Steven Gambrel just finished a dreamy coastal cottage.
I finally had lunch at Café Clover in the West Village yesterday. It’s a restaurant I’ve been dying to try, not for its menu—although it was delicious—but for its interior design. Leather banquettes in a perfect shade of blue, antiqued mirror panels, glossy black window frames, oversized sconces and a bar made out of the most beautiful veined marble.
I’m a huge fan of Steven Gambrel‘s designs. And after visiting his latest restaurant project yesterday, I had to look up his website to see what he had been up to since my last post. I wasn’t disappointed. In latest news: a Sag Harbor home that strangely looks like his own Hamptons escape. The kitchen is my favorite room: more perfect shades of blue, his signature shaker cabinets and marble countertops. In the sitting room, an extra deep sofa and a couple of oversized sconces.
You know those hazy days at the beach just before sunset, when the grey clouds reflect on the calm water and make it shine like a mirror. If you look far enough down the golden sand dunes, it’s hard to tell where the beach ends and the ocean begins. Sometimes the glaring sun pokes through the thick clouds and blinds you a little… Those grey-blue tones and golden sands make some of the most spectacular sceneries I’ve seen around the world.
