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.

Scroll and shop my favorites from the Glamour office inspired One Kings Lane sale here, and see more of the looks I loved from this chic office below:

Book Review: Kate Spade - Places To Go, People To See

Last month, I attended a Better Homes and Gardens Style Maker event in New York City and received an advanced copy of the latest Kate Spade publication: Places To Go, People To See.  I was thrilled to get my hands on this colorful and stylish coffee table book as I'm a big fan of the Kate Spade books in general (not to mention the Kate Spade stationery line, which I'm proud to carry over at Since the book officially releases today, I thought it would be fun to feature it.

Inside this lovely book you'll find the usual wit and bold colorful style associated with the Kate Spade brand.  The focus here is travel, or more particular traveling in style, capturing a time when travel was sophisticated and romantic.  A great addition to your coffee table and a fun gift for the jet set crowd (or even those who love to "armchair travel" as well).
