we just arrived in nantucket. it’s s charming and so beautiful. went to dinner last night and walked by all these cute little boat houses right on the water, the kind that are actually a little house you pull your sail boat up to. 

here is one decorated by gary mcbournie that’s perfect. it has it all that nantucket signatures- shingles, american flags, flower boxes, wicker, shells, paintings of boats, flags, and of course blue and white stripes.

i’m loving nantucket, i feel right at home here.

photographs from house beautiful.


note sure where the theme for these pinterest pins came from. truly, i just pin what i like then at the end of the week i pick my favorites and somehow always they tell a story. 

this week the story is blue and white florals and chinoiserie mixed with a little green and some hits of pink. the story is pretty. i love that my garden, miles redd’s new ballard collection, my friend rebecca de ravenel’s apartment and more giambattista valli couture is apart of the mix. 

enjoy! it’s always a good idea to make things pretty.

The High Line


today i was in nyc. i went and took a walk on the high line, the mile and half elevated linear park on the west side near the meat the packing district. i had never been there before. i loved it. i especially loved all the flowers and the landscaping.

i have been a bit obsessed with recent giambattista valli fall 2107 couture collection. i’ve been posting some of my favorite dresses from the collection on instagram. the collection was beautiful and it looks like it was inspired by flowers and gardens.

i couldn’t help think today when i was on the high line how perfect a venue it would be for the GV couture collection. the colors, the flowers, the textures, the long linear path would have been the perfect floral runway. 

photographs of the flowers on the high line are my moi.
