The Family Inn

For years, this cliff side home in Massachusetts operated as a popular coastal inn, where it hosted parties and receptions for over 100 years But when it went on the market, few people lacked the vision to recreate it into a home, until the current owners came along.  Having lived in the area and with an appreciation for the great gatherings that took place at the Inn, they set out to recreate the home for their family and friends, for many future gatherings.  You can catch the full story at NEHomesMag., but for now you can admire the delightful details this home has to offer.

Haute Holidays!

I was in the city this weekend for just a few hours and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the shops in their Holiday Best.  Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Williams Sonoma; are all decked for the Season.  The clothing stores are packed with sweaters and dresses that glitter with gold and silver.  This week we are putting our trees up.  Yup, two trees. I am getting the kids their own tree to decorate with pasta and popcorn, Power Rangers and Barbie!  Which leaves me free to decorate as I desire. 
This beautiful home belongs to Seattle based designer Susan Marinello.  Her and her daughter go all out decorating for the season.  Simple and elegant, just the way I like it!
