Dining, With a Hurricane!

With summer's arrival, eating outdoors has become a weekly occurrence here in New York City ... it was a long winter and I think I can speak for us all when I say it's so nice to be outside!

I'm fortunate to have a great rooftop terrace and my friends and I love to grill, bring rose and laugh and talk until late into the night...

Other than fresh flowers and great food, the perfect complement to any al fresco dining is a great hurricane lantern...candlelight is the best light, even in the concrete jungle!  Find a few of my favorites below .... bon appetit!

On The Spot: Aurora Chair from Made Goods and Lilly Pulitzer Fabrics


Knee deep in beach house scheming and the Aurora Chair from Made Goods is a great accent for a sunroom or porch.  In white or chocolate brown, you have great flexibility for throwing in a playful Lilly Pulitzer fabric!

Cerused for Summer


I'm working with a client right now on a beachside home and we're mixing it up with our decor.  While the appeal to stick to navy and white for a truly nautical look is there, we're going more royal blue and orange ... and the key to pulling this all together will be using a cerused oak dining table.  The wood tones will work great with the complementary color palette of orange and blue.  With the cerused finish on the oak, the table lends itself to a more casual installation.  Take a peek below to see where our design is headed!
