I’ve loved being in newport this week. such a special place. i’ve been intrigued and inspired by all the shingled houses, the water, the endless porches, the big green lawns, american flags blowing in the gusty winds and everyone running around in stripes-  it’s my kind of place!

…and if you want to go somewhere great over the summer, i have news for you, newport’s the place.

love this editorial from vogue from a few years ago and some interiors by tom scheerer. they feel like newport, the perfect place to spend summer.
