This weekend is the opening of The Hampton Designer Showhouse which is not only the best showhouse of the year, but also includes one of my favorite design teams, Tilton Fenwick, who created one of the most stunning “rec rooms” i’ve seen in ages.  This, of course, is my opinion only from the few photos I’ve seen online so I can only imagine what it looks like in person.  I can’t wait to get in there and take it all in!  The show opens this Sunday, July 24 and is open through September 4.  If you’re looking for inspiration or simply something to do this summer, I highly suggest making the trip to Bridgehampton

1224 Scuttle Hole Road, Bridgehamtpon, NY

Sneak peek of the room designed by Tilton Fenwick.  How fabulous are those pagoda lanterns?

One more detailed photo by TF.  I don’t want to give too much away!

I look forward to seeing the crowd this weekend and for those who don’t live nearby I’ll be posting plenty of pictures after I see the show in person.  Stay tuned for some fabulous design


It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

Which means the bar is open and it’s ok to have a cocktail after a long day at work.  I’ve been searching for the perfect bar cart for my apartment and as I browse the internet and shop around town I keep coming back to the same one.   I think it’s time to bite the bullet and get it already.  My problem is I love them all and I don’t want to come across another one 2 months from now that I HAVE to have.  This is the problem with being a decorator.  Newer and better things always come your way.  I know, make a decision and run with it. 

This is the one I keep coming back to. Black, White and just awesome.

 Faux bamboo?

Clean and white?

Rustic yet chic?

Small and sophisticated

Gold and mirrored?

Polished and funky?

Now you see my problem/feel my pain?  There are too many great options!
