Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]

Safavieh is one of my favorite vendors, because of its great price point, amazing quality and their ability to have classics, but also pieces that work with current trends. When I source pieces for clients it’s always a mix of high and low and a whole lot of in the middle. My in the middle […]

Safavieh Outdoor & Furniture Outlet

This past weekend we headed out east to spend the weekend at Jon’s parents’ house. We wanted it to be a relaxing weekend with most of our time spent in the pool, but I had just heard of the North Fork Sunflower Maze at Sidor Farms and needed to see it! My sister mentioned it […]

Our trip to the North Fork Sunflower Maze

I have been blogging since 2008! That’s a whole lot of time and in that time I started off on blogspot with a blog header that I designed. It was short lived and quickly updated when I found an artist to help me with a sketch for the header. Isn’t it crazy that back in […]

It takes a village: New Website!

This weekend we had zero plans so on Friday I decided that one of our activities for the weekend had to be going to Silly Lily Marina in East Moriches. It was about a 45 min drive from where I live and a little bit before you hit the Hamptons. It use to just be […]

Happily Wander Upon: SILLY LILY MARINA

For the longest time whenever I have been asked where I live I always tell people, “Well I live on Long Island now, but I grew up in Manhattan.” Gotta keep up that city cred! Plus when main stream America sees Long Island Princesses on Bravo, I think I need to clarify that I’m so […]

Happily Wander Upon: Royal Tea House

This weekend we happily wandered upon beautiful Heritage Farm & Garden in Muttontown, NY. Typically during the fall season we head out east to one of the many pumpkin picking farms. We always enjoy it, but it’s a 2 hour drive out and then lots of traffic once you get out east and then the […]

Happily Wander Upon: Heritage Farms & Garden

This weekend we had no plans and since the forecast was so nice we decided to venture out to Bellport, NY. I have lived on Long Island for over 20 years and I had never been even though it was only a 45 min ride away. Bellport looks like it was meant for summer. It […]

Scenes from my weekend…

Happy Taco Tuesday! I thought it would  be fun to showcase some fun spots on Long Island. A little bit of a helpful guide for locals reading the blog and people looking to vacation in the NYC/Long Island area. Summer is quickly approaching and I’m certain many have plans to head out east on Long […]

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.
