Stunning Sagaponack Rental

Stunning Sagaponack Rental

Would you rent this? I would in a heartbeat, it’s unpretentious & cozy… just the way a home should feel. Boys would be in heaven using the gym! You could lose them for days. Saunders Real Estate in the Hamptons has some fabulous rentals available. This one can be seen here. Seriously amazing huh? Donna x

The Humble Mud Room

The Humble Mud Room

While most US suburban houses have a mud room, I’m not too sure why the trend hasn’t spread to Australia a lot sooner. The Mud Room is an entryway from outside which serves the purpose of storing wet clothing & footwear to generally keep the main house tidy. I have a hunch though that originally farm […]

Blackband Design

Blackband Design

From design studios located in Southern California comes Blackband Home & Design, run by husband and wife team Greg and Wendy who have the effortless coastal approach down pat which is comfortable, stylish and casual all at the same time. One thing I picked up on was their fantastic use of blue & white ceramics […]

Bridgehampton Beauty

Bridgehampton Beauty

 For a new construction, here is a house with plenty of traditional charm and character. The glorious gambrel style home is located south of the highway at Bridgehampton and has far too many features to mention. Eleven bedrooms! Eleven…   It looks like a picture perfect day in the Hamptons. Such a divine entry door. […]

What You Love

What You Love

I was on Facebook this morning, nothing new about that. But I did see a post by Linterior Design, which I shared on my own FB Page. Now this  made me think about advice I seem to give often to people in the store when they’re so desperately wanting to stick to a definite theme, but not […]

The Hamptons 2014

The Hamptons 2014

Further Lane Farm

Further Lane Farm

There is nothing this home in East Hampton doesn’t have. Found on the Sothebys website up for sale I was intrigued by the name for starters. Reading further along the home was custom designed by architect John Murray & interiors designed by Victoria Hagan. This is one home you’d never want to leave… I know I […]

Good for the Soul

Good for the Soul

Is it called luck or a huge amount of hard work to be doing what you love each and every day? As the saying goes “The harder you work the luckier you get” I feel blessed. Source Just how lovely is this fabric? It’s Thibaut Donegal and I’m having a Carver chair seat upholstered in this. Seriously can not […]

Hamptons Palette

Hamptons Palette

Create your own slice of a Hamptons Haven by using a very select palette of colour. White, Blue, Neutrals & Black predominantly. I was asked not long ago if there is any black in a Hamptons scheme and my answer was a very firm yes! You see black is very sophisticated & classic. Used selectively […]

Which is it’s best feature (in my humble opinion) – homely, restful, a relaxing holiday spot on the beach.   Read the […]
