Just Beachy

Next week, I'm planning on meeting up with my college girlfriends in the Hamptons.  While I'm so looking forward to the change of scenery, right now, all three kids are done with school although not yet in camp. Things are quite "lively" around here to say the least. However,  I did manage to schedule some strategic play dates yesterday and slip away for a very much needed pedicure.  With a stack of magazines in hand, my short visit to the nail salon was incredibly relaxing.  Probably because I was admiring the beautiful Hamptons beach home of Katie Couric in Hamptons Cottages and Gardens, and reading about the wonderful job her talented landscape architect sister did on the grounds.  It provided such a great mini escape that I thought I would share it here today. Enjoy!

  6. When I read this article while sitting on the beach a couple of weeks ago, I thought that her home looked liked what I'd expect Katie's to look like...it was welcoming, pulled together nicely and a feeling of relaxation evokes the pages. It does not appear to be a stuffy home at the beach, which I've seen. Another reason that I adore Katie.

  32. Hello! I laughed in agreement at the level of 'life' in the house when the kids are off school.. That will be us in just a week's time, when the 'Winter break' hits. Though for us it will be our last two weeks in Sydney before we head off to Sweden. Can't believe it's so soon!

    I really like this house. It's warm, preppy yet relaxed, and very inviting. A happy place for sure.

    I hope you have a wonderful time with your friends. How fun!

    xx Charlotta
