The Hubs and I took a quick trip to NYC/Connecticut to visit family about 2 weeks ago - it was wonderful! I absolutely love NYC in the summer! and we got to spend the weekend in Connecticut at my wonderful in-laws house. I love, love, love their house! It looks like it's straight from a magazine:
The inside of the house is very cool with an open floor plan and exposed beams.
The lake near the house. The area reminds me of a Normal Rockwell painting - 4th of July here is straight up Norman Rockwell!
Oh yeah, I even found my future summer house:
The antique stores are great in the area too - my absolute favorite is this awesome shop in Millerton called Hunter Bee. They have a great eye and have some really amazing and fun pieces. A lot of personality in their things!! Below is a HUGE bust I was obsessed with (are you surprised?!) and they wrapped a massive yellow tassel rope around him - trust me - it looked AMAZING in person! This bust was at least 3' tall. It had already sold :(
Oh and if you're able to get to NYC for the Punk show at the MET go see it!! It was SO fun and cool! I got some great Mardi Gras costume inspiration!! :)
We will be enjoying cocktails by the pool at Caliza in Alys Beach tonight! Yippeeeee!
Hope you're having a great summer!!
