Packing for the Hamptons

Solid and Striped Lookbook 2014 East Hamptons, on Savvy Home Blog

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.  ― Henry James

 

I’m the girl who gets guilt trips from taking time off. The one who’s answering emails in her hotel room in Mexico while her friends are sipping on margaritas by the pool. Call it the bane of the business owner’s existence— I can never really disconnect when I’m traveling. But I love to travel— to switch up my day-to-day and experience new places. It keeps me sane, relaxed(ish) and inspired.

Right now, quick getaways (with access to speedy WiFi) is my jam. If I can combine my vacation with a work trip— even better. So now that I’ve spent the last few days in New York taking meetings and visiting showrooms, I’m off to the Hamptons where I’ll be working poolside  and attempting to not check my emails every 3 minutes. On the disconnecting agenda: beach racquets, backgammon, good books, tennis and a little golf. After all, what’s summer for if not to enjoy a lazy afternoon or two?

July Sunsets by Clochet and more Worthy Links on Savvy Home Blog

It’s a good thing I love driving, because I’m about to do a lot of it. I’m off to New York today for two whole weeks. I’ll be splitting my time between the city and the beach (but the beach will mostly win — let’s be honest). I’ll be working poolside, thus crossing off item number 1 on my summer bucket list. I even prepared a playlist for the occasion (try it — I think it’s a good one). Follow my shenanigans on Instagram.

Looking For: An Industrial Pendant

SR Gambrel Sag Harbor Kitchen featured in Interiors Magazine, Looking for Industrial Pendant on Savvy Home Blog

 

I have a thing for industrial lighting. It’s timeless in an edgier more modern way. In it’s most basic form, it could be considered the normcore of home decor. The industrial pendant also lends itself particularly well to the whole seaside aesthetic I’ve been curating around here. Just as this world’s sartorial crowds have seen one too many peplum tops, I’ve seen one too many murano glass chandelier, and industrial era inspired lighting is my solution. I would be perfectly contempt going turn-of-the-century  on every electrical box around my house.

I’ve been dreaming of going to Harbour Island — the remote island in the Bahamas allures with its pink sand beaches, colonial style architecture and golf cart only policy. Not to mention it is only accessible by water taxi from the island of Eleuthera. While I’d be more tempted to visit the Bahamas in the Spring or Fall, this seaside retreat designed by Alessandra Branca is giving me the urge to go. She chose the pink palette to play off the pink sands beach on which the house is located and to warm up the cool blue hues coming from the ocean. I’m loving the distressed dirftwood-like panels and all the coral seashell accents. My favorite room would have to be the bathroom — it’s simple, understated but with a chandelier, mirror and library sconces that pack a punch.

I would throw on a cute floral bikini underneath my lemlem shorts and swing tank, slip into my Vans sneakers, grab my aviators, backpack and Gray Malin surfboard and go.
