While Robert and I would rather have been at the beach, we decided to take an excursion to Hudson, New York, on a rainy Sunday. The town is always a place for inspiration. There are so many interesting objects (and some awful ones as well) that it is like going on a scavenger hunt. While I was not looking for anything in particular, it was fun to simply identify things I liked.

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.

I am a frequent visitor to the charming village of New Preston, Connecticut, a town filled with home and antiques shops not far from our Waterworks offices. I cherish my conversations with the individual shop owners, their direct engagement with clients and knowledge of their personal preferences, and the unusual merchandise. These and many other factors create a truly memorable shopping experience. Of course, it helps that the village has wonderful well-maintained 19th-century buildings and a fabulous waterfall that provides an outstanding background.

There is not a lot of inspired shopping anywhere, especially when it comes to the big global brands.  Clearly, that is a bold statement, (and my opinion); generally there is repetitive design, poor lighting and uninspired merchandise. I experienced a paradigm shift last week when I visited the newly opened Loewe shop in the Miami Design District.
