Hello and happy Friday afternoon. The sun is shining and we have had the most beautiful weather week, albeit some days cooler than you think of for June, but no complaints here! It’s Fathers Day weekend and the forecast is sunny and hot, so looks like summer is really here afterall and I am soaking up every minute:)

Today we were supposed to be flying to Vienna, Austria for a wedding and I must say I am sad that we had to cancel. We had too many commitments (mostly work) this coming week and it was too much pressure, but two of my sons leave later today and I look forward to seeing all the highlights through their eyes:) With the cancellation of the trip, it will make for a nice chunk of free time this weekend which is always a good thing!

Anyway onto life here lately…the good and pretty only:)


Love seeing all my favorite blue and white pieces outside……feels so fresh!

Isn’t this stunning new porcelain tray fabulous! It is meant to go with the bunnies and eggs and is on the way, great vanity tray too!

Just got back this exquisite new chinoiserie panel for a customer…lucky her!

Working on pillows (neckrolls for the chairs with these beautiful velvets)

Enjoy any opportunity to use my beautiful new giftwrap and the stunning labels I had made with my monogram from Arabella June

A designs clients gorgeous new Ralph Lauren rug and a newly upholstered accent chair, and how about that gorgeous custom tablecloth we had made (below)

So in love with the newly arrived bunnies and eggs…..there will be an arrival sale next week on them as well as the new giftwrap

This is our pool setting, we never did anything to this area, and have kept it as is (except paint the building) but did just add some much needed new patio furniture there

One of my favorite salads above, my version of a Tex Mex:)

Enjoyed a beautiful day in Sag Harbor and East Hampton for a dear friend for her birthday on a picture perfect day

And my beautiful white hydrangeas from the white party last weekend keep going! I was able to spread them around the house and set a beautiful table for an impromptu dinner-

Love any chance to use my gorgeous pagoda flatware, always get compliments whenever it is used:) Click here to see it

And last but not least caught this on my way to the office, a family of geese slowly taking their sweet ol time walking across the street….a reminder to slow down and few things are worth rushing and making yourself crazy over, we need to take a page out of their book:)


And that is life the last week or two… is nice to be getting into a summer mode, as we all know it flies by way too fast.I am trying to enjoy it as much as possible, there are already whispers of holiday, Christmas, etc…..and it makes me want to put on the brakes and enjoy summer while it’s here without thinking ahead.

Hope whatever you are up to this weekend is wonderful and relaxing! Until next time…..

PS Last day for the exquisite silver sale! All of the best selling favorites are back, the tabletop lamps, candelabras, chargers and exquisite new Chippendale trays! Click here to see the sale

My sons graduation party is next weekend. I am patterning after you blue and white.
How did you keep your hydrangea from wilting in the sun?
Thank you in advance

So many lovely thoughts coming my way from your way. Thank you! I especially enjoy your stunning courtyard scenes. You’ve inspired me to create mine much the same way, except with deep blue cushions and blue-and-white pillows in scroll pattern print, all sewn with Sunbrella (R) fabrics a couple of summers ago.

Such beautiful white hydrangeas in the blue and white ceramic vases! Your new green chairs are stunning as well as your elegant and inviting pool area! I go vicariously with you to these extraordinarily beautiful homes and settings, as there is nothing as gorgeous or expansive in my humble world. I can only dream about them, as I enjoy your phenomenal posts. Please keep the great

I love all the pillows you have on your outside furniture! Are they Sunbrella or another suitable outside material?


What are the dimensions of the chinoiserie panels and cost? Are these painted or covered with wallpaper?

Thank you,


Yes, I too, am interested in the chinoiserie panels, if more are available! Details, please?
Another fun set of pics, Tina. Thank you!!

Your holiday home is a dream, however I have to tell you, I love, love, love your formal residence.

Why no candles in the candelabras??? They are beautiful, but I find that so odd!

Love the gorgeous Ralph Lauren Accent Rug and the Blue stripe upholstered accent chairs. What is the fabric used for the chairs, Ralph Lauren? So enjoyed all the musings. Happy Weekend!!

Hi Tina beautiful post!! I sometimes skim over the other readers comments and the person who commented about the candleabras I thought was rude. I have candleabras on my dining table and rarely put candles in them especially since one time we were celebrating my dad’s birthday and one fell and lit the tablecloth on fire! They are beautiful with AND without candles! Yours are simply beautiful and that white themed table is breathtaking.
Love your clients new chairs too….can I ask which fabric that is? I am in love with it and having a love affair with the color green these days. Hope you have a nice weekend.

What is the brand of patio furniture you have in your main home in the first picture? That is what I have been looking for. Thanks, JoAnne

Dear Tina, I just marvel at all that you manage to accomplish, and you do everything so beautifully!

A week of beauty! I love these posts- your phone takes the best pictures, which iPhone do you have?
Love the chairs that beautiful mural and
your gorgeous table setting!

Hi Tina
Enjoy the pictures….adds to my ideas list.
The large white Porcelain ginger jar’s on your dining room table are they available……. if not can you obtain more?
Thank you
