Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top Home, Beauty and Fashion Picks-


So, instead of devoting several different posts to this enormous sale, like I’ve done in the past, I’m just dedicating this one post to my top home, beauty and fashion picks – the items I’m either shopping for myself or already own and love.
This year the sale is a bit different with various tiers for cardholders (I can start to shop today – hence this post!)

Book Review: A House In The Country

charming architecture of a house in the country

A House In The Country



A House in The Country, is the collaborative work of architect Peter Pennoyer and his wife, interior designer Katie Ridder.

The couple built an amazing country home in Milford, New York.

This beautiful book is a detailed account of the design inspiration behind this stunning personal project.

The house, pictured above, is both classic and contemporary-and I’m truly obsessed!

Every inch of this home is special – from the architectural details to the stunning interiors.

I’m really partial to the landscape design and the amazing job Ridder did on the home’s extensive gardens.

The book features a pullout of the garden plan, complete with a key to flowers and plantings, something I would love to implement one day!
