House Tour:Greenwich House


We thought a beautiful homage to classic blue and white (and a little red!) would be the perfect way to start the day today. This lovely Greenwich escape is just the place for a little mini-vacation without ever leaving your seat. We hope you enjoy your break as much as we did!



Things We Love: Black Furniture

Lynn Morgan Design
A touch of black is a welcome addition to any room.
Windsor Smith Design
But, sometimes, if a bit of black is good, a bunch of black is better!
Kerrisdale Design Group
An accessory here or there is fine, but, every now and again, we love the bold statement of a black piece of furniture.
Kelly Wearstler Design
Paired with gold, the look is glamorous and chic.
Architectural Digest
Paired with red, it’s vivid and intense.
Decor Demon
And, of course, a little shine never hurts.
Vogue Living
The crisp pop of white accessories on a piece of black furniture is such a focal point.
Black and cane are the ideal combination.
A fabulous French desk is one of our favorite ways to incorporate black furniture into a design scheme. 
Christina Murphy Design
Black furniture is so chic with gorgeous grays.

Liz Caan Design

This is a dream closet. Being able to jot a note, or sit down to casually apply make-up at a fabulous black desk would be amazing!

Carrie Hayden Design
We adore how black grounds a space, pairing perfectly with vivid colors and vibrant patterns.
Brown Design 
Yellow is one of our favorite accent colors with black. It’s happy, fun and the perfect amount of contrast.

Happy Monday, everyone! We hope you have a wonderful week!


Things We Love: Oars

It’s always fun to find unique ways to spice up your decor. And, while you might think of oars as just what you use to paddle a boat, they can also be a whimsical way to add interest to any space.

These two beautiful water views are accented by the oars leaned casually in the corner. The first photo was featured in Coastal Living and the second is designer Lynn Morgan’s river view as photographed for New York Spaces.

Anything three-dimensional on a wall is instantly eye catching. In this seaside home, featured in Coastal Living, designer Kay Douglass ditches the typical painting or mirror that would hang over the couch in favor of oars.

This outdoor shower, pictured in Coastal Living gets not only a dimensional kick but also a punch of color from oars.

Also in Coastal Living, these beachcombers can be ready for a paddle at a moment’s notice and give their porch a punch of color with this red oar.

Oars are also the perfect thing to hang in difficult-to-decorate spaces. In the first room, featured in Veranda, designer Kay Hutchinson creates a focal point by hanging oars above the doorway. The home of American painter John Dowd, as pictured in Elle Decor, also has an oar hanging in the stairwell.

If you think an oar could be just the thing to spice up your space, we love this Caviness Basswood Oar.
