Haystack Mountain School of Crafts

If you’ve been looking for the best adult summer camp ever, you need look no more because Haystack Mountain School of Crafts is it!  Haystack is an international craft school located on the Atlantic Ocean in Deer Isle, Maine which offers intensive studio-based workshops in a variety of craft media including clay, glass, metals, paper, blacksmithing, weaving, woodworking and more. Students live, eat, and work at the school, and studios remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Learning a new craft with Maine as the most beautiful backdrop…pretty much my dream come true.

Coburg Bar

It’s gloomy days like this that make me want to hole up in a corner of some bar, sip some whiskey and people watch all day long while I pretend to work. The Coburg Bar would be that ideal place, a traditional bar with contemporary flair beautifully designed by India Mahdavi. The dark paneled walls are the perfect backdrop to sink into a cozy wingback chair and enjoy a quite and intimate afternoon. Now only if I lived in London…

Never been on a cruise, but I would be first in line for one if this is what the ship interiors looked like. Love the art deco decadence of the S.S. Normandie.

Fired Earth

Tile can instantly create drama in any space, whether it’s a neutral palette or an all out pattern party. I’ve had a love affair with handmade and hand decorated Moroccan and Spanish tiles for a while, especially when they are mixed with more contemporary elements, so I really love the array of offerings from tile company Fired Earth.

Great way to add oomph to your powder room is to tile your sink wall from floor to ceiling.

Lovely backsplash.

Classic subway tiles in basic black and white are always a good choice. And the beveled edges add a bit more dimension.

A palette with some punch, but still serene.

It would be bath time all day everyday if I had this backdrop.

A little bling if that’s your thing.

The Artesian Bar

Is it just me or is it always SO hard going back to work after a holiday weekend?? If possible, I think I have a vacation hangover, but I’m back at it even though my mind is already wandering and thinking about far and away places, like the amazing Artesian Bar inside London’s Langham Hotel. Designed by David Collins, the space is the definition of glamour, with it’s lavender palette, chinoiserie chic details and mirrored pagoda bar. Meet me for a drink?

Whoever invented the term “bachelor pad” probably had something like this in mind…the Playboy Townhouse that was never built…

The Nomad Hotel

Oh, to be able to escape to the Nomad Hotel at a moment’s notice. Visiting NYC is one of my favorite things to do and staying in it’s gorgeous boutique hotels is my other favorite thing to do while I’m there. The Nomad opened up earlier this year and it is named after the neighborhood it resides in, North of Madison Square Park. The turn of the century landmark building was converted into a Parisian inspired lifestyle hotel that speaks to the building’s architectural heritage. The hotel accommodates 168 guestrooms with views of the Empire State and Flatiron Building. The interiors were designed by Jacques Garcia and I have to say his work at the Nomad is luxury defined.

This is where I picture the family and servants of Downton Abbey to reside…in modern times…if they were alive…and real…

So Fresh and So Clean Clean

My mail has been held captive for a week due to a broken garage door, but my patience was rewarded with a big stack of magazines, including the new MS Living Home Issue! One of the featured homes belonged to Martha’s daughter, Alexis, and it is a great display of soft minimalist.

Love the terrazzo floors throughout the home.

Oh, to one day have such an orderly kitchen…

Just sitting at this beautiful, vintage Italian vanity would probably make me look ten times better.
