Ina Garten’s Home

Ina Garten may have good taste in food but she also has it when it comes to home design. Here is her new-ish barn in the Hamptons. The large living/dining/kitchen room and the impeccable furnishings make this house unique! Enjoy!

A Brooklyn Townhouse

Owned by Fitzhugh Karol a woodworker and sculptor and Lyndsay Caleo a jewelry designer and goldsmith, this house is designed by them too! Located in a Brooklyn browstone the home has both old  charm and modern touches. I just love the kitchen, what a great sink!

Friday French Lesson: Gorgeous Home

I have been so busy that it has been hard to come up with a good French Lesson for today, but this house is wonderful. The moment I see a beautiful French home (like the one below) I begin to dream about being there. This home is especially easy to picture oneself in!

Learn French:

Kitchen- Cuisine

Bathroom- Salle de Bain

Terrace- terrasse

While wandering around SoHo/Nolita last week I visited a few Calypso stores- clothes, home goods and marche. Calyspo’s look is very islandy and has a preppy/go-with-the-flow vibe. I really like their fragrances (especially Vanilla and Tangerine: first and third in the photo below).

Jenna Lyons Lovely Home

How great is this Brooklyn brownstone? Owned by the uber chic executive creative director of J.Crew, Jenna Lyons. The architecture of the apartment is amazing and the simple  yet effective decorating really shows it off. The color scheme is great too, greys, blacks,blues, pops of yellow and lots of white.

(Imagine, this is her closet!)

(Adorable room for her son,Beckett. Love the stripes!)
