We were thrilled to be invited to create a pop-up shop at the eponymous New Preston shop, Privet Lives. A mere, but charming, 250 sf, Privet owner Suzanne Cassano invites brands she loves to create a two monthlong shop for visitors to the village.  We are in the good company of Norma Kamali, Alicia Adams, Stubbs and Wootton amongst many others who have been presented there.

This month, we’re celebrating the kitchen at Waterworks.  This gives me another opportunity to talk about faucets for the kitchen, bar, laundry, potting shed and mud room, as I have done in the past. There are so many options available that it is difficult to make the right choice from the many faucets in the market.

The countertop is the pivotal material in the kitchen. It is the most frequently observed item in the kitchen and should provide inspiration with every glance. Choose wisely.

It is not often that one gets to see a contemporary indoor pool.  The first one that comes to mind is Hearst Castle, that extraordinary extravaganza of surfaces and space that make you feel like you are in a fairy tale. The next, for me, is the remarkable pool pictured here, in which every detail has been magically conceived and the experience of being in the space is totally memorable. It bears a resemblance to the Hearst pool, for sure.
