I know, I know. I’m already in the Hamptons. But a girl can dream of a sexy Spanish getaway anyway right? Designed by Lázaro Rosa-Violán, Hotel Cort in Mallorca plays between Scandinavian and nautical styles to create an environment that could just as easily be set in East Hampton as it could in Palma, Mallorca. Personally, I’m looking at the beautiful millwork, the rich hues, the ikat wallpaper and the industrial lighting— I’m sold. Someone take me there right now.

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.


J.Crew is practically giving away clothes this week with the code TREAT. Get an extra 40-50% off final sale styles like these metallic sandals,  this Liberty bikini, this panama hat, this white denim jacket, this lemlem scarf and these vintage track shorts.

More than 100 items summer items are now on sale on Serena & Lily. Grab some bath towels, senegalese baskets, piazza outdoor string lights or a butterfly chair.


Blake Lively’s Preserve is finally here (and everyone hilariously throws in their two cents)

This also made me laugh out loud: The great (albeit trivial) lament.

What we Instagram versus what is actually happening.

This girl’s summer playlist might as well be my own.

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.
