it’s always nice to make a grand entrance. that’s one thing my new house lacks — there’s no foyer, no entry hall of any kind — you simply step right into what i suppose you’d call a grand room, or a combination dining room / living room space. i love my house, but i do like a nice entryway welcoming you and your guests home. it’s great to decorate them with a good looking bench or credenza stacked with books and mementos, or perhaps a wall of personal photographs. i like an entrance that’s simple, but warm and inviting. something as smashing as a great tile floor can set the right mood for welcoming guests, too. alas, all i’ve got is a mean case of FOMO, so here are a few looks i’d love to have.
i’ve never been to the hamptons before. have you? i’ve heard about the beachy getaway forever and a day (hello, carrie bradshaw!) so perhaps i’ll get there eventually. Nestled near the easternmost tip of New York’s Long Island, Amagansett was established by farmers and fishermen before being developed as a summer resort in the late nineteenth century. The coastal plain village retains its clusters of Shingle-style getaways and clapboard cottages, and The Line has recently taken up residence in one of those seaside cottages to create a seasonal store like no other. Located just blocks from the ocean in a white clapboard structure that dates to 1720, The Line – Amagansett is designed as the ultimate beach cottage: relaxed yet refined with a carefully considered selection of fashion, home, and beauty items. so, while we’re armchair traveling, let’s visit the line’s new summer home, shall we? at least we can still shop online from our cosy armchair without even getting sunburned.
