Here’s a look at what we’re loving from around the web this week…
Tour a Historic Hamptons Home
When Shaun Woodward bought his 1840s Egyptian Revival in Sag Harbor, it needed a lot of work. A full renovation, in fact, to bring it up to current standards. Fortunately Woodward has updated many a house before, in locales such as Mustique and in the English countryside, so he was more than game for the project. The result is simply stunning: a lovingly restored home that pays homage to its historical roots while being perfectly suited for modern living.
Finish a Room with Decorator-Worthy Drapes
Custom curtains are a hallmark of interior design, a tried-and-true go-to that designers turn to time and time again. Elle Decor has rounded up its best-of-the-best examples by luminaries Jeffrey Bilhuber, Tom Sheerer, Nate Berkus, and more. Whether your space reads modern or traditional, you want to add texture with pattern or create a statement-making pop of color, drapes are a no-fail way to give a room that finishing touch.
Cook This Gorgeous Fall Dish
Summer is usually associated with the most colorful, beautiful recipes, but we think this one gives all those bright berries a run for their money. Now that fall is here, it’s gourd season, which means spaghetti squash is finally popping up in grocery stores. You can cook with the squash in seemingly endless ways (hello, healthy pasta!), but we’re partial to this Mediterranean version made with fresh pesto, Kalamata olives, and of course, feta.
Mix China Like a Pro
Gone are the archaic rules that you must have a uniformly set dinner table. Interiors experts such as Bunny Williams and Michelle Nussbaumer sound off on mixing china, giving a resounding “yes” to incorporating different patterns and sets in your dining room. We love the idea of using heirloom, passed-down porcelain with newer pieces for a striking and collected look. Merging tradition with personal style is definitely something we can get behind too.
Hang Art on an Exposed Brick Wall
Exposed brick is a beautiful, even coveted feature to have in a room. But old bricks and uneven surfaces can make hanging art a bit tricky. Self-proclaimed gallery aficionado Will Taylor of the blog Bright.Bazaar talks through the process of hanging art (and other fun pieces!) on brick to create a wonderfully unique statement wall.
