Things We Love: Granite Countertops

Town and Country Kitchen
 When it comes to style in the kitchen, nothing beats the look and durability of natural stone.
Cornerstone Group Architects
We adore marble, sure, but if the natural etching and staining that can occur is something that you find bothersome, using it in a space where work prep doesn’t take place as much is a great bet.
If you equate granite only with shiny black, it’s time to take another look.
Caitlin Wilson Design
In creamy tans or even white whites, granite can be a fabulous replacement for even the most devoted white marble lover.
We adore the look of black honed granite, it’s modern yet classic look.
And for the chopping, cutting, grinding and hot-plate placement that so often takes place in the kitchens of even an amateur cook, nothing beats the strength and versatility of granite.
These brass cabinets are simply stunning. And the black granite on top is a perfect finishing touch.
Madeline Stuart
A stunning white granite lightens up a kitchen and looks amazing with hardwood floors.
Jonathan Berger Design
A simple cabinet design with a more eye-catching top is also a great look.
CWB Architects
Gray and silver are a winning kitchen combination.

What’s your pick for gorgeous kitchen countertops? We hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!


Too Pretty to Sleep


For smaller bedrooms, awkward shapes or multi-purpose rooms where guests might stay, no piece of furniture is as versatile as a beautiful daybed. Perfect for sitting or displaying statement-making pillows, the only problem with some of these daybeds is that they’re too beautiful for sleeping.

Love the Hermes orange touches. We are working on the playroom for baby Will (fewer than 20 weeks until his arrival!) and orange is going to be one of the accent colors. The orange end tables came in last week, and they are so cute! Can’t wait to show you all the progress very soon!

Design Traveller
This photo reminds me of some of the steep arches in the upstairs of my husband’s family beach house. What a charming way to use the width of a room where you want sleeping accommodations for one. I love all the white. When the ocean is the main focal point who needs a bunch of color in a room?

What a truly luxurious room. Not having to take up so much space with a bed makes the room seem open and light.

I love the monograms in this room. Speaking of monograms, one of my good friends got married this weekend, and her new monogram is mRs. Wonder how often that happens.
Vincente Wolf Designer
We love this shade of blue. I think it’s one of those impossibly grayish blue shades we were talking about a couple of weeks ago.
Simon Watson Photography
This looks like a great room for a sleepover. Even the floor is fluffy enough for sleeping — or staying up all night playing truth or dare.
Sarah Richardson Designer
Love all the stripes. Sarah never lets us down. Thanks for stopping by today! We hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother’s Day.

Things We Love: Hats

We love a perfectly put together room as much as the next person, but there is something so charming about a special touch that makes it look lived in. Hats can be such an attractive — and functional — addition to the decor of any room.

Sarah Richardson, for example, in her country home, featured on her HGTV show Sarah’s house, uses hats to frame this beautiful space. Plus, if you’re running out to work in the garden, you can easily grab a hat to shade your face.


These hats and straw bags, photographed by William Waldron for Country Living, add a welcoming touch to the area outside this back door.

Want to create your own hat display? We love this floppy hat with chinguard,beach sun floppy hat, Cecil Straw Lifeguard Beach Hat and Linen Cloche Flip Bucket Hat. Plus, any of these fabulous hats are perfect for an afternoon of gardening or a day at the beach!
