The Best Laid Plans

My friend had the brilliant idea of grabbing lunch in near by Rowayton, Connecticut and then taking a long walk around this charming coastal town.  I figured it would be a great break from the stress of packing up our home and the head ache of our renovation.  I had planned on taking a lot of photos and sharing them here, as this area has some of the prettiest sea side homes I've ever seen.

Well, between my friend's son coming down with a stomach bug and the inclement weather in this area the past few days, this plan did not pan out.  Instead, today I'm sharing the work of Lynn Morgan, one of the area's top interior designers.  Lynn Morgan's homes are all so perfectly conceived, in many ways this post is better than what I had originally planned.


One Room Challenge: Week Four

Welcome to week four of the one room challenge. (What's the one room challenge? Click here, here and here for everything you've missed so far.) The biggest thing to happen this week is the chevron glass tile back splash. I LOVE how this looks, I would love it more if it there was grout to go with it.  At least there's a grout decision: that's something.


Nantucket Style

Even though summer just ended, I've already started thinking about next summer.  This coming July, Mr. Zhush and I will be kid free and fancy free...for the first time in nearly fifteen years! While I know I'll be missing my kiddos, I love the idea of a quick trip up to Nantucket. We've both been but not together. Crazily enough, the time to think about this type of vacation is now. 

As a little inspiration for the Mr. (who's still on the fence) I'm featuring this charming Nantucket home designed by Steven Gambrel.  Regardless as to whether we make it to the island this summer, I'll always love the whole chic Nantucket vibe.  In fact, I'm hoping to add some of this sophisticated coastal style to my home...(scroll through below for some of my decor picks).


Glamour Office

The One Kings Lane collaborative design of Glamour magazine editor Jessica Kantor's office couldn't have come at a better (or more inspiring time). I love my current home office- but I absolutely need some fresh ideas as the new space I'm moving into is much larger (although a bit awkward). I've given so much thought to other parts of the new house, with our move now less than a month away, it's time to start focusing on my office space.
