A Few Fun Things

on 1st Dibs...The sofa, lamp and sheep are at the NYDC, where 1st Dibs dealers have showrooms on the 10th floor. I'd love to visit. The chairs are from this week's new listings. The sheep's pretty fun, huh? Happy Wednesday!

I Think I Might Be Ready

Happy Monday. Today I feel almost ready for Fall! My baby hit first grade this morning with a big smile, which helped a lot. So I find myself excited by interior spaces again, not just the great outdoors. This one definitely caught my eye-- a fine modernist collection in a cozy, Mediterranean-style, historically-landmarked apartment...Fresh, cool and comforting all at the same time. It is the apartment of photographer and modernist collector John Coolidge, featured in last week's NY Times. Read more about it here.
I hope you have a good Monday. I am thinking of all of you affected by Irene, hoping recovery is swift for you.

A Few More From Camp

I could look at these views forever...Thankfully our campsite was only a few miles from home. In fact, we could see our home way down in the valley. Happy Tuesday!
