favorite color combination?
Please let me pick two color combos!
Zingy tangerine’s held my imagination for some time, and it plays well with others: fuchsia, navy blue, cool grey. Frank Sinatra called it the happiest color. I’m with Blue Eyes on this one.
describe your home and personal style?
They’re both in constant state of evolution, and I believe strongly in tailoring each to their location. Our home is a 1790s farmhouse, so I would never plop a white lacquered kitchen into it. I like to nod to history and geographical context while nudging in a new reference or two. On the clothes front, I’m leaning more towards investment pieces than I did a few years ago, but as you can see I’m still nursing a major costume jewelry habit. I tailor everything – especially footwear – to wherever I am at the moment, whether that’s my gravel driveway in Massachusetts or New York’s pavement
what are you obsessing about right now?
Without a moment’s hesitation: its proximity to the ocean. The Atlantic keeps things interesting. Even on the dreariest of days, we have something to talk about. I also like the small-ness of our town. This picture is from the 1950s, and it looks pretty much the same today.
I enjoyed every bite, but I also gladly get down and dirty at places like New York’s Meatball Shop
