I joined my son’s class on a recent trip to the Historical Philipsburg Manor, as part of his studies on Colonial times. The tour and activity center teaches about the thriving farming, milling and trading center owned by the Philips family in the 18th century…
There were celebrity designers everywhere that were introducing their textile and furnishing lines at the Hight Point NC trade show. So approachable and fun…
A few months ago, I had a wonderful opportunity to meet with some top designers from around the country, to discuss the business of design. The 3 day retreat was located in beautiful sunny Tucson Arizona.
Treat yourself to the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor, or one of the many local Fall Festivals like the Warwick Applefest. Just get outside with friends & family and have some Fall Fun!
To help us to always remember….
I had the pleasure of watching the Tony Award winning play Kinky Boots on Broadway and going backstage. I even met the star Billy Porter! (aka LOLA)
We love the hot weather and palm trees. What better place to enjoy both but to visit Florida in the summer!
Something that can be seen throughout the Hamptons in the Spring are flowers beautifully arranged in pots and planters. If you do not have a green thumb, but like to surround yourself with color, this is a great way to accomplish both.
One special place that we like to visit is the Walking Dunes, in Napeague, Montauk, NY. They are named this not because you are allowed to walk on them, but because the wind and natural elements change the configuration of the dunes constantly.
Paul Stover is one of the local Colorado artists. He has an amazing studio deep in the mountains in Glenwood Springs and creates custom furniture pieces in ‘old world’ wood working techniques…
High Line Park & Walkway…is like an Oasis in Manhattan!
Storm King Art Center boasts rolling hills filled with unbelievable steel and abstract art sculptures. I chaperoned on a school class trip and was inspired and felt so at peace. The kids were amazed with the scale and beauty of these art forms set into the beautiful upstate NY landscape.
