Editor's Note: Today I am wearing skirt by Theory, jacket by Claude Montana, turtleneck by Diane Von Furstenberg, tights J.Crew, and booties by Coach.
As I mentioned yesterday I was so excited to receive my new Architectural Digest. The whole issue was fabulous but there were two articles in particular that I loved. I highlighted one yesterday and today I would like to talk about this exquisite home on Long Island. The land in the Hampton where this incredible home was built was first spotted by Lyor Cohen and his then 5-year-old son. The were sailing in the Noyack Bay together and spotted the land on this cliff. How cool it is that they can visualize a home on the piece of land that came to fruition 15-years later?! As Cohen described in the article they wanted the house to disappear into the landscape when it was built. The architecture of this home and the interior is incredible! I hope you enjoy the article as much as I did. Happy Wednesday it's Hump Day! The weekend is just around the corner!
How beautiful is this outdoor setting with the sunken fireplace and built in seating area?! What an incredible spot to enjoy an incredible view!
What a stunning Dining Room! This cerulean Edelman leather used for the banquette is so beautiful! The color cerulean will forever remind me of the Devil Wears Prada, with the long dissertation about the cerulean sweater. Having worked in retail at Bloomingdale's for 7 years of my life and 26 years of a designer that I can truly say that fashion does translate over into interiors.
What a cool piece of art from The Bruce High Quality Foundation?! The whimsy of this piece of art sets the tone for the room! The built in sofa below is so clean and crisp. Notice the wooden base that seems to disappear. The cocktail tables are custom made and I love the shape!
Cohen and his wife Li were married at the house this past August. What a beautiful picture!
A view of the house on the cliff. It does meld into the surroundings just as Cohen had aspired.
This kitchen is so clean and crisp it almost doesn't look like a kitchen. The oak cabinets seem to disappear into the wall and of course I love any thick marble top. White marble is always the right answer!
These walls are so beautiful wrapped in a Phillip Jefferies wall covering. So textural and beautiful! What a clean, crisp, and elegant Master Bedroom!
A Japanese soaking tub in the Master Bath is super cool! It reminded me of the tub in the Guest Bathroom in my roommate from college's house from Port A Prince, Haiti. Really the second time that I have seen a round tub like this. The way the shower is install it disappears and allows the tub to be feature of the bathroom. Job well done! How about that view?! Oh my!!
I love the designer notes that follow the articles! Telling about various special pieces in the home and where to source them. These always spark ideas for me in my current design jobs!

I found these quotes this morning and loved them both!
Dinner last night was ground lamb burger seasoned with rosemary and Tony Chachere seasoning and served with homemade broccolli soup! I showed some of my new friends on my Kravet trip pictures of my dinner and one of the remarks was that is all you eat?! My response is yes it is and it is delicious! I love being 25 pounds thinner!
The song reminds me of my days at Tulane. Fun times!
