Shop to Know – The Maryn

bedroomWhat is it about the water that we find so calming?

Well, Michelle Adams, of Domino fame, has recently launched a new business, The Maryn (meaning of the sea), which celebrates all the best aspects of laid-back seaside holiday. Michelle believes that we can bring those elements into our homes so that we can breathe, unwind and get back to our roots.

Michelle sought inspiration from her favorite seaside spots: Sausalito, Montauk, the south of France and the shores of Lake Michigan.

She’s partnered with favorite artists and makers, such as Caitlin McGauley and Julie Terestman to offer exclusive prints, textiles and ceramics. There is a lot to love and it’s the type of things you’ll have forever. As a magazine editor, Michelle found that “trends are fleeting, so I’ve curated pieces that are here to stay.”TheMaryn_CamilleStyles-7FURNITURE hero_lifestyle static1.squarespace-1 static1.squarespace-2 static1.squarespace-3 static1.squarespace-4 static1.squarespaceAnd, I couldn’t help but notice a lot of red, white and blue…which seemed appropriate today.

Check out The Maryn…there’s a lot to love!

Lux Holdups – Lucite Designs

il_570xn-757139583_97rnI came across an article I had torn out of the Wall Street Journal and it (along with a conversation with a friend in search of some lucite curtain rods) prompted me to share this today. Lux Holdups, created by Ashley Platt in 2013, is creating stylish and useful lucite home decor. Think curtain rods, towel rods, side tables, closet tabs, drawer pulls….or anything else you can dream up that is clear and shiny!

To the trade or directly to you, Ashley and her team are creating lucite fashions at their factory in Brooklyn, NY. il_570xn-739621583_f379 il_570xn-742575606_d3nqil_570xn-1004616762_hupu il_570xn-739575973_i3v5 il_570xn-815419505_ep8v il_570xn-923094635_eu2k il_570xn-945424212_bd97 il_570xn-1107924417_ps29It’s clear to me that Ashely is really on to something!

Red, White and Woo Hoo

DSC_0002Is anyone else excited about the upcoming L-O-N-G weekend?!

Even though school is still in session in the Northeast, Memorial Day Weekend makes it feel like “summer”. Beach clubs open, tennis tournaments commence and I’ll break out my new white dress. It’s also one of the times I set out all my flags to honor those we are really celebrating. Red, white and blue is a favorite color combo of mine, so I dress everything from the house and the table to the bar cart and the dog (Molly!).IMG_6567 IMG_0845 DSC_0019 DSC_0039 IMG_6569IMG_6140 IMG_6556IMG_6544IMG_6542

Here’s to the start of a great week…pool time and the long weekend are in sight! Bring out the red, white and blue. Woo hoo!
