Round Hill, Jamaica

Round Hill, Meg Braff Design

Excited to share a fun, preppy island project of Locust Valley based designer Meg Braff’s today…just three days before Anne jets down to the same resort, Round Hill in Jamaica, for a last hurrah babymoon!  We’re totally obsessed with Braff’s design for this private villa, and especially the pink retro-style umbrella above.

After what feels like weeks and weeks of dreary gray NYC weather, can’t wait for some bright sun and blue skies! See you soon, Round Hill!

A Wallpaper Weekly from times past, updated in a new colorway. How different it looks in the cheery blue for the girls’ bedroom in Miranda Brooks’ apartment, as seen in this month’s Vogue.  (See all of the beautiful Brooklyn home here.)

Color Call: Oxblood

While the Pantone color of the year has been the talk of the town – and yes, we’re loving you Emerald – we also think Oxblood red (seen heavily already in the fashion world) is worth keeping top of mind these days for interiors.

Here’s a great oxblood saturated room in the Kurbits Cottage at The Maidstone hotel in East Hampton, NY (see a great design write-up on The Maidstone here, from Hotel Chic Blog).  We love how this rich color translates to a light, airy and whimsical Hamptons cottage, showing the true versatility of this hue.

This photo proof positive: oxblood red and turquoise are a winning combination.

Wallpaper Weekly, no. 46 / Manuel Canovas “Pagoda”

Manufacturer: Manuel Canovas / Pattern: Pagoda / Colorway: Amethyste

Entrance Hall by Ruthie Sommers, Veranda Dec 2012, photo: Francesco Lagnese

Sometimes a bold pattern like Manuel Canovas’ “Pagoda” is even more stunning as a smaller, unexpected moment rather than covering every wall surface.  We love this entry by designer Ruthie Sommers from the latest Veranda.  Yet, even with stunning black lacquer and a beautiful tiled floor by Ann Sacks, without those fabulous fabric-clad doors we’d be left wanting for more.

Here’s a larger view which gives us a glimpse at how stunning those doors must be in person!

Hope all of our East Coast friends are staying safe today and tomorrow through Hurricane Sandy.

While we all wait it out, a Sandy inspired round-up of art for sale online via UGallery, a great resource to find smartly priced work by emerging artists.  Will you be shopping e-commerce today to pass the time??
