Miles Redd’s Fire Island Home


If you love interior designer Miles Redd, you’ll enjoy this peek of his Fire Island home by T Magazine. The beachy spot is a departure from his typically traditional approach—the 1970s home is full of calm neutrals and clean lines. Much of the decor was left untouched since his 2006 purchase of the place, but there are still details that whisper of Redd’s trademark style (a topiary here, a fully-stocked cocktail tray there). Scroll to the bottom for ideas on channeling this laid back look.


Sweet Gifts for Baby Girls


Our upstairs neighbor had a baby girl while we were away and I got to hold the darling little nugget yesterday. She was only four days old and she did the cutest little sneezes. Our neighbor is a midwife and gave birth at home (above our dining room!) which seems like a very badass, Viking-esque thing to do. As I mentioned previously, we’ve been having difficulty getting pregnant, but I’m pleased to report that we’ve found a Danish fertility clinic we feel good about and they are hopeful! Thank you for all of your sweet comments and emails, they meant the world. In the meantime, I’ll just have to spoil the cutie patootie upstairs. Below are some lovely gifts for baby girls. Above, a sweet striped ruffle swimsuit.
