When Luxe Magazine called to ask if Diane would be willing to offer up some of her “local gems” for their Insider’s Guide, we jumped at the opportunity. After all, living and working in Connecticut for over thirty years has allowed us to fill our address book with fun finds. Here are some of our favorite spots if you happen to be in our neck of the woods!
“Go-to” Design Store – Pimlico in New Canaan for its delightful atmosphere where vintage meets modern and the traditional is tempered by the unexpected.
“Must-see” Fall Event – Rooms with a View, founded by dear friend Albert Hadley, where twelve designers transform the Southport Congregational Church into stylish vignettes. This year’s theme is “The Next Generation” showcasing new local talent – how fun!
“Shop-til-you-drop” Fashion – if you’re looking for the latest styles from Milly, Rebecca Taylor and DVF, Togs in Greenwich will satisfy your urge to splurge.
Meals “To Go” - you haven’t had take-out until you’ve tried Nicholas Roberts‘s Naked Portabella Club with roasted red pepper, arugula and goat cheese or the Crawfish Beignet Wrap with Cajun aiolo… so yummy, you’ll never order from a deli again.
Hope your weekend is filled with fabulous finds like these!
