The Last of Summer Inspo

0111

I'm back in the city, which is interesting.... Pros and cons of both worlds. On one hand, I can work again now that everyone is in school and such. On the other hand, work. Somethings are so much easier to get done in a suburb, and other things are way easier in the city. Things with the kids, are better in the burbs. Errands easier in the city.

I do have lots of cool things to share, so check … [Read more...]

Two blog posts in one week about the Brooks family! This is the home of fashion insider Amanda Brooks and her husband painter Christopher Brooks, who was once married to Miranda Brooks, the landscape genius who designed Anna Wintour's magical gardens. (The gardens here were Miranda's first garden ever, she and the family are still close!)  The English farm house was where Christopher was born and raised, but Amanda and her family were using it as a vacation house for a only couple of weeks each year.   One day, burnt out from NYC life - the striving, oh the striving! - Amanda suggested to her … [Read more...]
