michael and are about to head up to napa for a long labor day weekend to celebrate a dear friends birthday, and boy am i’m looking forward to it!

something else i’m looking forward to is possibly going to lyford cay the first of next year, i’ve been invited, let’s see what happens.  lyford cay is a very private gated community in the bahamas. babe paley, prince rainier, and sean connery have all had homes there- it’s very, very chic!

the reason this fabulous destination is top of mind is that tom scheerer decorated the lyford cay club. i’ve always been smitten with the interiors ever since i saw it a few years ago in town & country. that lobby is one of my favorite rooms of all time- that’s a room i can’t get enough of and i can’t wait to see it!

tom scheerer’s new book, tom scheerer decorates, is coming out soon (it’s fabulous by the way!) and if you follow a lot of blogs you already know this. tom’s book launch has been a tour de force and it has made me want to visit lyford cay even more. don’t you? enjoy!
