May your walls know joy; may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility. ~ Mary Anne Radmacher
Summertime and the living was easy…. rosé flowed like a river to the sea and our lives were filled with songs that made us feel good. Now that we’re past Labor Day, it may be time to say farewell to our beloved cocktail fare and roséwave playlist. But we’re not waving goodbye to rosé-colored Instagram posts just yet so here are some of our favorites!
P.S. We’re heading off to Grand Cayman for work (yes, work!) so we’ll see you in our Instagram stories.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
Happy Labor Day!
It’s your time to bloom. ~ Unknown
You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. ~ Christopher Robin
Don’t you know yet? It is your light that lights the world. ~ Rumi
Is it our imagination or is there just so much blue and green on Instagram these days?
California-based designer Mark Sikes is certainly inspired by this palette, the perfect combination of green grass and blue sky…
as is British stylist Hannah Wilkinson.
Newlywed Mackenzie Horan‘s feed is full of Nantucket blues and greens…
while the new wallpapers from the talented duo, Suysel and Anne, at Tilton Fenwick for Hygge & West beautifully capture these summery hues.
Last but not least, we could not resist this gorgeous table setting by Serena Fresson and love how she used basil as the perfect touch of green to complement the blues. Can you believe summer’s halfway over?

Last month, we headed down to the Greenwich Design District – Day of Design to meet interior designer Marshall Watson and were so enchanted with his stories, we had to get his book. In The Art of Elegance, Marshall shares his finest work, from a family compound in Sweden to a refined Gramercy Park apartment and a cozy Newport Beach cottage.
Cultivating the art of elegance is no easy task but Marshall certainly has this art down to a tee. Known for his meticulously researched, European inspired style, he combines texture, detail, and simple luxuries to create homes that are as unique as their owners.
There are so many words we could use to describe Marshall’s work – livable, peaceful, warm, light – and of course, elegant. And the same could be said about the designer behind the beautiful images in this book.
