Thanksgiving evokes images of bountiful spreads, hunkering down by the fire, crisp fall walks—and one place is seemingly the best place to do all these things. The newly opened Greydon House in Nantucket designed by Roman + Williams (of Ace Hotel fame) draws on the island’s history as a Colonial settlement where today, every rafter and paint color is inspected to respect the architectural integrity of the Greek revival shingle buildings that stand in this sheltered time capsule. Roman + Williams wasn’t about to jeopardize the local history and aesthetics—departing from their habitual edgy modern tendencies to create a place that’s integrally timeless—but not without an expertly curated aesthetic that’s firmly planted in the present. All this to say—I couldn’t think of a better place to get away for Thanksgiving than Greydon House—where one can sip on a cocktail at the bar, cuddle in blankets on the porch, read a book in the library, sleep in for hours, and taste the culinary delights of Michelin-starred chef Marcus Gleadow-Ware.
What gifts are you getting for the men in your life this year?
It’s my favorite time of the year again—gifting season! I’m kicking off gift guides with my favorite people to shop for this year—our favorite men. Maybe it’s because I get to do it so rarely, but I love shopping for men. Some people say they’re hard to buy for, I happen to think the opposite. There are so many fantastic well-designed products out there to fulfill any interest your guy (or dad or brother) might have—maybe they’re really into photography, cooking, traveling or coffee. The key is to know what makes them tick and find the absolute best accessory to help them realize their passion. And if all else fails, anything cashmere or a bottle of Terre d’Hermès will do the trick.
We ladies are not the easiest to buy for—which is why I highly recommend treating yo’self this Valentine’s Day in order to actually get what you want. But if you’re the type to drop hints to your guy on what you might want to receive, here are a few suggestions. These would all be at the top of my list. What’s at the top of yours?
