Rag & Bone + Sir Alistair Rai = Happy Friday!

I think that I include clothing in my posts (and I know I owe some to the male half of the world) because when I think of what surrounds me and affects the way I live, I can’t help but include the most immediate thing I live in – my wardrobe. Rag & Bone is […]

Morphosis – Federal Building, San Francisco

What is that? It’s an outer skin of passive/active technology to keep this building from needing any mechanical cooling systems above the fifth floor! There is a ‘Building Automated System’ that opens and closes the windows automatically to allow natural ventilation. There is also a complex network of solar screening to allow or disrupt the […]

For quite a while now…and here it is! This small restaurant, now on top of the Rinascente building in Milan, is created as a piece of architecture that can be moved ‘easily’ from place to place: every six month the location changes and it’s always an enchanting place (urban or natural,…

Easy Beach Attire

The first part of easy beach attire is the part that isn’t there- don’t wear your shoes! And the rest should be equally easy breezy!  Shirt: Vince. Shorts: Vineyard Vines. Belt: Reclaimed leather with antique buckle from Zane in Portland, Maine. Vince makes a super cute shorty racerback tank, that wont reach a low-rise waist, but […]

4 Things

Four more things that have accrued on my desktop. No theme, but I hope you enjoy… Most of these are from other blogs I really enjoy, so follow the links and you’ll probably find some new reading material you enjoy too… These kids must be completely adorable. My kids share a room. They’re only one […]

Nautical Accessories to Take Your Home from Peachy to Beachy!

This is the best title I’ve ever come up with and a cute post too! Take it from the top: 1. Sea Blanket by Vic Prjonsdottir. So cute, love their blankets and towels! 2. Thomas Paul Bedding (Via). And Pillows! He’s a go-to for anything ‘nautical preppy.’ Basically my first stop when I think nautical […]

Do it in a Day

When my mom asked me how she was ever going to organize ‘the shed’, I told her to do it in a day (with my help of course)! I’m sorry I didn’t remember to take a before picture, but imagine your mom or grandmother’s shed/attick/basement piled floor to ceiling with sporting equipment and parts – […]

On the Water in Gloucester

\ Z took me and Marley sailing around the Gloucester Harbor with Hammond Castle in the background.  We thought we’d leave Thacher at home for his nap, but apparently Marley had the same idea! Jacket by Barbour is perfect for a blustery day on Cape Ann. Children’s Life Jacket is Mustang Lil’ Legends – always […]

3 Gorgeous Interventions

This is what Frank Ghery wishes he could do.  This deconstructed-reconstructed loft renovation by Lakonis Architects is just enough metal, angle, and wierd, but seems to all work out to a fully palette-enticing intervention.  Always love the juxtuposition of ultramodern on chic historic! My dad is probably a little horrified at this modern monster proposed […]
