Let’s Get Back into Bed

ZH9Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! Happy Monday. In honor of Monday morning and my desire to just get back into bed, I thought I would share one of my new obsessions … the bedding from Zara Home. I have always been a huge fan of an all white bed. There is just something about crisp, clean, white sheets that screams the epitome of cozy to me. Lately, after a gift of a beautiful set of antique sheets from my mother, I have been intrigued by the look of heirloom white sheets. Maybe embroidered, maybe crocheted, maybe lace, maybe eyelet … but always all white. So it was much to my delight when I stumbled upon the sheets at Zara Home and found a plethora of beautiful embroidered white sheets. Wish I had a few more bedrooms … ZH8 ZH7 ZH6 ZH4 ZH3Images via Zara Home

Cocktail Hour on East 66th Street

IMG_9557Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! Rabbit Rabbit. Last week I was up north doing some work for clients, and before I left for the airport I had a quick moment to pop into the Kips Bay Decorator Show House. What a great house this year, on 66th between Park and Madison, and what a wonderful group of designers. It was a real treat. And clearly, all the designers are ready to have a good time. There seemed to be a preponderance of bar set ups at the Show House … oh don’t worry, I was thrilled because we know how I love a good cocktail, so I thought I would share some of the bar vignettes with you. Happy Monday! IMG_9565 IMG_9571 IMG_9600 IMG_9606

Out East

Tommy7Good Morning Lacquered Lifers! I flew up north and came out east yesterday to start a project with a new client, and in honor of my being on the South Fork, I thought I would share again one of my favorite East Hampton cottages, decorated by my favorite, you guessed it, Tom Scheerer. This house has that comfortable yet very chic aesthetic that is a signature of Tom Scheerer’s work, and which is why his work is always at the top of my list. Obviously it helps that the historic cottage itself has great bones – note the beams, the woodwork, the fireplace, the windows(!) – but Scheerer’s decorating plays to the bones of this cottage perfectly – some antique, some not, cozy yet sophisticated … the epitome of old East Hampton. Tommy4 Tommy3 Tommy1Tommy6Tommy5Tommy2Photos via House Beautiful
