Long Island

It was exactly 1 year ago that I was wondering around Long Island trying to navigate the antiques shops and obscure winding roads putting together the Hamptons House.  It was a dreamy - and lets be honest, lonely time that I will definitely never ever forget.

Beautiful old barn barn above - taken from inside my rental car

This was literally a dead end that I could not get away from - I ended up here 3 times in an hour as I battled to find my way to the house.  
I think there was a reason for it though because it was so dreary and sooo beautiful.

One of my favorite antique shops I ever found out there.  It was in Bridge Hampton.

Mine and Meredeths shadow as the beach.  One of the most serene chilly beaches out.

I passed this place on the highway like a million times and I always watched for it because I loved the way the type looked on the signage - perfectly Hamptons old school

Koji Tsutsi Architecture

I looked up Koji Tsutsi's work initially because of the project i read about in Dwell this month about a village in Uganda that Tsutsi built,
yet I found he has phenomenal contemporary urban work as well.  Based out of San Fransisco he also has a lot of projects in Tokyo, Japan.

What I wouldn't give to be sleeping in this comfy hide out.

Charlie Boy

Pretty photo that I nabbed off of my sister (in-law)'s blog because I think it's lovely.

Partners & Spade

Stumbled into this shop Saturday within my fist few hours of tromping around the city.  The displays and aesthetic of this store are out of my imagination - that I wish I had.  It really looks like someone curated the odds and ends of a really cool old persons house.  I really loved it.  The web page doesn't necessarily speak the same language as the actual store, but it is fun too.
