The Weekender No. 243

Off the shoulder top — By Sandra Semburg

I spent last weekend in Montauk, and it was the perfect way to hit the restart button, wind down, and remind me why I moved to New York. As much as I love this city, the day-to-day grind can get real here—so it’s important to remind yourself of those pinch me moments that make you love the city so much. For me, it’s being able to shoot east for a weekend, and stay for a while after all the Memorial Day party goers have gone—and driving back to the city light late at night. Monday was foggy af in Montauk, and it felt as if Amy and I were the only NYers remaining in Montauk and Amagansett. I get why locals love their off-season so much—you get a totally new appreciation for the Hamptons when you get to have a lazy brunch in an empty Gurney’s, meet locals like the infamous Jack’s, stroll through near empty shops, and linger until the very last second.

 

I went shopping this weekend, and couldn’t resist this top and these pants. I also got a new pair of sunglasses, and a dress for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this weekend!

The Line Opened Up Shop In the Hamptons—And You Need to See It

The Line Amagansett, Hamptons Pop-Up Shop

My favorite concept store The Line opened up shop in the Hamptons. Located on Main Street in quiet Amagansett, the store is set in a charming 1720 clapboard house. The interior is far from what you’d expect from a traditional small town shop though—The Line has all the sophistication and refinement it’s known for, in a relaxed beach setting. This shop follows the New York, and Los Angeles Apartments, and is open as a pop-up for the summer (and hopefully much longer).

I visited the store over Memorial Day weekend. The painted white porch is adorned with leafy palms, and a light blue ceiling You are greeted with a gorgeous pair of pink Pierre Jeanneret chairs as you walk in—the massive walk-in closet The Line is known for takes over the line of sight. The whole place is drenched in sunlight. Needless to say I wanted to buy every single item. My favorite shop, in my favorite town—this may just be my version of heaven.

The Weekender : No. 241

Sandra Semburg on @Savvy Home

It rained all week in NYC, and the weekend was no exception. I had a really long week, so I was more than happy to spend a large amount of time at home to recharge this weekend. I was on a mission: clean out my inboxes (check!), and get ahead at work so I can actually leave the office at a reasonable hour this week, just in time for the sun to return (check)! It was nice to allow myself to rest, recharge, and get ahead. I rewarded myself with evenings out with friends.

On the calendar this weekend, we tried: Ramona—a stunning cocktail bar in Brooklyn I reviewed last summer. We also hit The Lucky Bee—I’ve been wanting to go forever after hearing of their kitsch décor, and coconut water cocktails, and it didn’t disappoint—it was the highlight of the weekend! The food was delish. We went to a few favorites—Attaboy (I’ll say it again: best cocktails in NYC), and The Ludlow (because their sofas are just too comfortable). I went back to La Pecora Bianca for brunch because the décor is simply too cute, and it’s conveniently close to me. Last night, I tried Freud, a new spot in the Greenwich Village. Will I ever dine at home, or will I start storing sweaters in my oven à la Carrie Bradshaw? Stay tuned to find out.

What is the epitome of a Parisian-chic getaway ? The Rive Gauche Hotel Henriette has become an indisputable choice as the balmy haven redefining the notion of hospitality accommodation.

Sitting somewhere between bohemian, scandinavian and rustic atmosphere, the neat yet quirky decor takes on mix and match aesthetic turning trends into a timeless and dreamy space. Hotel Henriette is the brainchild of fashion stylist and owner Vanessa Scoffier, whom with great flair and without the help of an architect or decorator individually furnished 32 rooms with vintage finds and designer pieces.

The design space has is adorned with splashes of pastel and graphic colors, painted floors, contrasting wallpapers while I can’t get enough of the original details channeling a shabby-chic apartment such as the plywood headboards, Moroccan rugs and sheepskin, rattan chairs, can mirrors, linen sheets and bold pillows.

In the same intimate and romantic atmosphere, the hotel also counts on a luxurious conservatory winter garden, a retro inspired breakfast room to enjoy brunch and a cozy lounge with books to grab and read. Am I crazy to say that I would like to move in ?
