Where to Shop on Labor Day Weekend

Gary Pepper Contiki Chronicles - Where to shop on labor day on Savvy Home Blog

Happy Labor Day weekend! Monday will mark the official end of summer, so I’m beating the summertime sadness with a little feel good shopping. With all the summer styles on sale, I’ll be stocking up on beach essentials for my upcoming trips this winter. I’ll also be on the lookout for Fashion Week outfit options.

September will be a busy one for me, with trips to NYC and Paris, so I’m happy to be spending a low key Labor Day weekend at the country house with my family. When October rolls around, I’ll start being home more often so I’ve decided to treat myself with small home updates to make my place more comfortable: new pillows and throws, bedding, lighting… Sometimes the smallest things will make a home feel new again.

First things first, David Netto is clearly a genius. You can already tell from the entrance hall that welcomes you with a black lacquered dutch door AND secret bookcase doorways. If that’s no indicator, then turn to the baby blue lacquered floors in the common areas, the whitewashed wood, the exquisite choice of lighting (did you notice most of the pendants around the house are white?). No detail forgotten in this seaside perfection.

Obsessed, I tell you. That’s all I feel about this house. I have no clue where this house is located—other than the fact that it’s called Project Oceanfront Home—which tells me it’s probably not in Nebraska, but rather somewhere on the North-Eastern seaboard. Let’s say for the sake of argument—based on size and shingle style (and the NYC address of the David Netto design firm) that’s it’s in the Hamptons. To get the look, decorate with an eclectic mix of whitewashed furniture, blue & white dhurries, natural materials and pops of yellow, orange and turquoise.

How to Choose the Right Size Chandelier

How to choose the right size chandelier — on Savvy Home Blog

1, 2, 3, drink. 1, 2, 3, drink. J/k—this is not a post about swinging from Chandeliers, but rather on how to choose the right size chandelier for your dining room. Elle Decor recently came out with a guide for the biggest design problems solved—in two sentences or less. I thought it would be fun to start a series answering your design problems—so I ask you: what are your biggest design challenges? Answer in the comments below and I’ll answer your questions in the following weeks.

As for chandelier size, follow this formula: room length + room width (in feet) = chandelier diameter (in inches). To make a big statement, you can alway push the chandelier size up 6-8 inches (the bigger the better right?). For extra long tables, I also like to play with rectangular chandeliers. As for height, a chandelier should hang 60-65 inches above the floor (depending on ceiling height) or around 30 inches above the table. Now that you all know what to look for, how about a little chandelier shopping?

Lisa Sherry’s Guest Bedroom Inspires A Beach House Moodboard

Lisa Sherry's Guest Bedroom on Domino - via Savvy Home Blog


When I stumbled upon Lisa Sherry’s guest bedroom on Domino, I was instantly inspired to create a cozy beach house moodboard. I love the mix of blue and green, the mix of oil painting with black & white photography, the crisp hotel bedding… My version would have a slightly more modern edge and be adapted for beach life — think awning stripes, coral accents, surf photography and industrial lighting. I envision the Tilton Fenwick fabric repeated on a pair of chairs, an ottoman or pillows. It’s a great coastal theme that’s equally subtle, casual and elegant. Thoughts?

Jenna Lyons Office at J.Crew HQ on Into the Gloss - via Savvy Home Blog

I’ve been having a REALLY good summer. It’s been all about pool days, flirty skirts, jalapeño margaritas (seriously — how did this delicious invention not make it’s way north of the border yet!?). I have to admit that when August came around,  I was NOT ready for Fall. I was fighting the cold weather front and the Fall wardrobes on Pinterest. I wanted nothing to do with them. And then this week, something changed. Maybe it started when I cooked up a carb-heavy feast on Tuesday night (it was a cauliflower, burrata and thyme spaghetti, in case you were curious); or maybe it was the hours spent obsessing over Forward’s fall looks or maybe it was finally pulling out my ankle boots from the back of my closet for dinner last night.

Suddenly, the thought of the impending Fall months didn’t seem so bad. I have a few exciting months ahead: kicking off with a trip to NYFW and a (quieter) week in the Hamptons followed by a week in Paris. Then, there’s Thanksgiving, weekends in the country, my birthday, the changing leaves… So finally, I’m ready for you Fall. But please don’t get here too quickly and give us a few more weeks of warm summer bliss.


I’m obsessed with the looks that Forward pulled together for Fall. I’m especially loving these French military pants, this cashmere crew sweater, these Chloe ankle boots and these print leggings.

You know I’ll be shopping for Fall footwear this weekend because shoes are up to 70% off on Shopbop! Currently considering these Rag & Bone booties and these Jeffrey Campbell cutouts.

My friend Rebecca introduced fabrics by the yard on her shop! This girl is seriously talented. I’m loving these painted coffee & blue stripes and these stone gray spots.

I died going through Chairish‘s beach inspired collection (obviously) — especially this round sea shell mirror, this highball pendant and this coral sculpture.


Anthropologie came out with a scrapwood wallpaper and it’s pretty amazing.

A beach house is priority, but a lake house would also be nice…

Elettra Wiedemann has a brand new website, and I’m a fan!

#Ihavethisthingwithfloors. And I’m not the only one.

Lust over Jenna Lyons office at J.Crew once more.

I’m kind of dying to splurge on this bag for Fall.

More and more reasons to love Montauk.

What’s your favorite part of summer?
