Blue Monday :: Library by French designer Florence Lopez #bluemonday
Light my Fire :: this gorgeous chandelier from @robertlonglighting nods to the romance candle lit rooms while adding a modern twist. Each cylinder has a candle contained in a steel tube that not only makes it dripless but the melted wax provides fuel for the flame making it last until the last guest leaves. #lighting#fpinventory#lightmyfire
Keeping it simple :: Stair inspiration for our new project. Trying to pare down the fussiness and keep things clean and classic with thin iron railings and warm wood tones. #staytuned#fpprojects#interiordesign
Parting is such sweet sorrow :: as many of you who are following along in my #stories know, we are moving. Yes, we have made the decision to downsize a bit and leave this beautiful place we have called home for so many years. It is has not been easy, as so much love, care, and thought went into every single detail of this house. (See my #journal blog post link in profile to learn more about that) .
It started with hiring @mcalpinehouse who I had admired for years and a charge to transform my grandparents lovely home in to a modern interpretation of a classic white brick Colonial. He nailed it. .
And then came the dream team of @davidbaker1128 as project architect, @kaisertrabuela on the landscape design and @lisa_hilderbrand with me on the interiors. We spun magic...and my family and I ended up with a unique, beautiful contemporary yet classic family home. We raised 4 wonderful boys here, had fantastic parties, swam at night and snuck out on the roof to watch the fireworks at the Joe.
And now it is time to pass the torch to another family who will love it the way we did. When he designed the deep porch you see here in the photo, Bobby McAlpine, the ever poetic architect said “This is the kind of porch that invites long goodbyes” And so as we bid farewell to this home and move on to the next, I invite you to follow along with @lisa_hilderbrand as she gives a lovely IG tour and tribute to this place I was lucky enough to call home. It is the perfect way to say goodbye. #movingon

This beautifully collected home in Southampton is full of bright color and pattern that evokes the whimsy and creativity of its steward Kate Spade. She lived here in the summers as a welcome respite from the hustle bustle of the city. She also hosted the most fantastic parties (so I hear) and the most epic estate sale one year where I was lucky enough to score a few treasures.
She was a true visionary that brightened the world of fashion and design. She will be missed.#RIP#katespade
