The 5 Best Things I Saw This Week

I travel almost every day of the week, which brings me into contact with some pretty cool people and cool things. I thought I would start doing a quick round-up of some of my favorite spottings from the past two weeks and then make it a weekly post. Maybe there’s something here you’ll like too!

1. The Jonathan Adler-designed room at the CFDA Showhouse in the Aldyn in New York. This room is like a living Candyland of color. Waking up in a space like this would definitely give me a different outlook on the day!

2. This ceramic deer head at J. Seitz in New Preston, Connecticut. The perfect shades of white and gray would add elegance to any room.

3. The entry hall to interior designer John Stefanon’s Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, home. I love that in this historic home John mixes Paul Smith, petrified wood, a resin table, beautiful ceramic jars, and a industrial looking wire sculpture mirror. Balanced brilliance.

4. My new vintage wool blanket from Red Chair Antiques in Peterborough, New Hampshire. A steal at $45. I think I’m going to design an entire guest room around it in my new color scheme of off white, navy, black, and tan.

5. The amazing Atlantic sunset I saw last Friday night on the ferry from Nantucket to Hyannis. The sky erupted like a volcano of color. It simply looked like the end of the world.
