Tomorrow morning, I leave bright and early for High Point, North Carolina to attend High Point Market! With camera in hand, I promise to bring back inspiring photos and highlights from the show! Already on my wish list ~ Oly, Baker, Tara Shaw Maision, and Dransfield & Ross just to few a few! My flat shoes are packed for what promises to be a whirlwind trip filled with fabulous furniture, textiles, accessories, art and more…see you soon!
While I’m away, I’ll be posting some personal tidbits inspired by Elle Decor’s monthly feature, 12 things he/she can’t live without…from fashion to travel, I thought this might be a fun departure from the norm…ok, let’s begin!
12 things I can’t live without
1) Anne Fontaine ~ For me, there is nothing like the feel and fit of an Anne Fontaine blouse or sweater..feminine, flirty, sophisticated and undeniably French, I’m instantly seduced by her designs…when in Boston, shop at the Boylston Street store (followed by tea at the Four Seasons!)

2) Provincetown, MA ~ Summer would not be complete without a trip to Provincetown…sunsets at Herring Cove, a glass of champagne on the porch of the Red Inn, a visit to the Packard Gallery, a morning stroll through the picturesque dunes…heaven!
