I always try to be that person who is super organized and prepared for things.   Holidays, Mondays at the office, life in general.  Sometimes I am, but most of the time I am grasping at straws and this fast approaching holiday is one of those times.  If you're like me and still need a gift for your bestie who's hosting or your in laws who are already prepping the ham, but you haven't even thought of present yet then you're in luck... 
the above are perfect.

3.  Rosemary Topiary | Terraine
4.  Tassel Pillow | Tory Burch
5.  Pagoda Candle Cover | Bunny Williams for Ballard
6.  Leopard Cashmere Throw | Williams & Sonoma
7.  Green Tortoise Frame | Oscar de la Renta

Dee & I are working on an amazing, new project from the ground up.   It's a new, beautiful construction on the North Shore of Long Island.  Finished it will be breathtaking!  We are so excited to be a part of it and cannot wait to share the process with you here.

The first step is the kitchen.  Brass, La Cornue and water views... is there anything better?  
Above is our inspiration.

Bring back the trim!!!

For the last couple of years I had fallen under the spell of less is more.  My lamp shades went bare, my pillows screamed for cover and my curtains were tailored, but boring.  My inner-self finally broke free.  I do LOVE trim... always have.  I am actually obsessed with it.  It's intricate detail, delicate color and amazing design.  Now, my lampshades are singing, my drapes are smiling and I have to admit, everything looks trimmed!  
So here's to a new year of tassels and fringe.
