My newest flipbook is on HouseBeautiful.com ......
Take a look & let me know what you think!!!!
Okay, I know I'm prejudice .........
but, the September isuue of
The new cover logo is chic & modern .......
there are several additional monthly columns,
& the "front-of-book" articles are great!!!
And of course, the featured homes are divinely delicious!!!!
But, my favorite thing is embedded in the E-I-C's page!!!!
Remember the incredible Digimarc Discover app
that appeared last month???
Well, it's here again .......
this time aim your smartphone (with the app)
at Newell's picture
& he'll take you on a video tour of the whole issue!!!!
By the way ......
I am also very taken with the yummie colors in these ads!!!
So very, very "accessoratorish"!!!!
These stunning artist-designed benches can be found at
LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton!!!!!
They are incredible pieces of sculpture ....
and could "accessorate" my garden any day!!!!
All summer, I have been starring across Georgica Pond
at this "color-blocked accessoration" .....
& wondering what it is!!!!!
I thought it might have been legos,
a strange movie set,
an art installation,
or maybe a unique architectural paint job!!!!!
But, yesterday I went to take a closer look
& found out ......
It's building insulation!!!!
Who would have thought .....
a new category.....
Isn't it divine!!!!
And such a chic idea!!!!
Do you think anyone else realizes what it is?????
I find the most unusual things in France ......
and this is the most divine metro station in Paris!!!!
Sculptor Jean Michel Othoniel designed this station,
and I think it looks like the most stunning
piece of contemporary jewelry!!!!
And what better "accessoration"is there than jewelry!!!!
The ultimate "contemporary general store" .....
Main Street, Sag Harbor ......
has the best "accessorations" in every category!!!!
From books to boots,
placemats to plates,
luggage to lattes,
baskets to bowls ...
and everything in between!!!!
This is the ultimate "must shop" for all "accessorators" ......
& a "must stop" for the best ice coffee in town!!!
Another fabulous find from my favorite "London Design Spy"!!!
Spanish furniture & product deign graduate
has created "Underconstruction,"
a system of porcelain joints used to assemble furniture!!!
"Just like plumbing fittings, Underconstruction consists of porcelain elbows that connect wood sticks in order to assemble furniture. I wanted to push the boundaries of porcelain's common values by playing with its symbol of fragility and delicacy, and give a new use to it. On one hand, the porcelain elbows function as hardware fittings giving freedom to the user to custmoise his/her own piece of furniture. On the other, they create a familiar ad warm domestic construction."
I adore the design of the elbows .....
especially the Delft print pattern "accessorations"!!!
This divine weather-resistant Missoni printed ottoman,
& it's twin were found on a Long Island patio!!!!
Available at Comerford Collection in Bridgehampton,
the "poufs" are a great "mix-up" with ....
the collection of vintage Indian patchwork quilts,
used to upholster the pillows .......
on this glossy black, antique wicker furniture!!!!
It's an "accessoration" mixing brilliant colors,
lots of patterns .....
and so many countries!!!!
Uber-unusual, extremely eclectic ......
and very chic!!!!
I found am obsessed with this collection of
20 hand-painted African pods,
nesting in this divine cement bowl!!!!
I adore the color-story and the patterns are fantastic!!!
Available at Ruby Beets Antiques in Sag Harbor ......
but, you better get there before I go back ...
'cause they are screaming to live in on my coffee table!!!!
repurposed tree stumps .....
to create this "earthy" chair and ottoman!!!
A stunning "accessoration" for any backyard .........
