My inspiration this week! It has been an unusually active hurricane & earthquake season, continuous prayers for those recovering in the aftermath of Harvey, as well as Mexico’s strong earthquake last night! Please help however you can! Strength for the Southeast Coast of the States as Irma is approaching Florida, Georgia and South Carolina…

In the world of design, there was quite some activity as well… new book releases by two celebrated American architects James Farmer and Gil Schafer (am I the only one surprised that they share a title?). After nine years of working on its design with Daniel Romualdez, the Southampton home of Tory Burch is nearly finished and we got a peek earlier this week through the October issue of Architectural Digest. My own inspiration this week has been all over the place – Gil Schafer’s Maine home, antique Turkish and Portuguese tiles, white kitchens and stunning marble backsplashes; and fashion of course. I’ve discovered a very stylish design follow in the presence of Nati Abascal, a Spanish socialite with exquisite style.

    Lovely. And yes, with my family in harms way in Florida, these are worrisome times to be sure!
