let’s take a trip to new york city this weekend, shall we? it may well be the tail end of the season, but so what? let’s allow the warm days to linger at a summer day cafe — a bright, airy, nautical and modern space in the heart of tribeca. lounge around in comfy black & white striped banquettes dining on seafood specialties and some very sippable wines. a light-filled, laid-back sidewalk spot with floor-to-ceiling views looking out towards West Broadway, and surrounded by an abundance of lush greenery, this is one of those classic new york spots i long for. let’s get our sassy sailor on with a cropped trench and wide-leg pants with some detailed stitching and step up our game in white leather booties and a striped cashmere sweater. can your phone case match your outfit? i say, sure, why not! don’t forget a swipe of killer red lip before you sashay through the door.

i think i may need to live in a proper english manor, just so i can have a dreamy little utility room (sometimes called the scullery, downton abbey fans) like this one. i never thought i’d say dreamy and utility in the same sentence but With cupboards from U.K-based devol’s Classic English range, glossy dark Iroko worktops, a luxurious Carrara marble sink and rustic terracotta floors, this beautiful room feels authentic, simple and yet completely utilitarian. What could be lovelier? meet devol’s Classic Millhouse Utility Room complete with the cutest drying rack I ever did see. bring on the chores — i’m ready to get to work in this very pretty utility room!

we haven’t checked in with freunde von freunden for a while and this particular feature of their’s reminded me that i’m long overdue for a share. i love their interviews with all sorts of creatively inspiring souls and i loved this one with a photographer and potter, new york city born and bred brooklyn-based Artist Helen Levi. Helen has a charming studio with exposed beamed ceilings and white brick in the industrial waterfront neighborhood of Red Hook in brooklyn where she makes beautiful ceramics. i highly recommend this read, and should you be as enamored with helen’s pottery as i’ve become, you can shop for her works here and follow her on instagram to keep up to date with her latest creations.
