I don’t feel particularly homesick for America these days, but every time I see an instagram of summertime in Sag Harbor I become a sad puppy and text my husband “Let’s move back to New York!” That won’t be happening anytime soon, but this home by Bloom boutique owner Mona Nerenberg is all my Hamptons dreams come true. Published in the July issue of Elle Decor, Mona shares the beautiful space with her partner, landscape designer Lisa Bynon, and their two Bengal cats. When they bought the cottage it was an abandoned property with an attic full of bats, but with some tasteful renovations the couple (in collaboration with decorator Mark Cunningham) managed to transform the home into this masterpiece. What I would give to curl up on that rolled-arm sofa with a cup of tea and a good book!
I love shopping for vintage online, especially pre-owned furniture and home decor. Sure, eBay, One Kings Lane, The Real Real, and Chairish are all great, but Etsy, with its millions of products and user-friendly search tools, holds a special place in my heart. Below is a roundup of the Etsy vintage home decor shops I peruse on a regular basis. Any great shops I’m missing…? Let me know and I’ll add them to the list! READ POST
Neiman Marcus is offering 25% off most of its home items today and I’ve rounded up my favorites so you don’t have to sift through the 8,988 products yourself.

British fashion brand Boden continues to win over legions of American fans and its easy to see why. These new pre-fall looks remind me of early J.Crew—flattering, simple, and classic. They currently have a great selection of little black dresses and perfect-for-layering knits. Boden’s pieces are great for anchoring a wardrobe and can be easily dressed up with higher fashion accessories (think this shift with these shoes). Explore all Boden’s new arrivals here.
