Anyone subscribe to House & Garden?  My college roommate loved Gwyneth Paltrow, now I have a good reason to love her too!  Check out more pictures of her Hampton’s hideaway here .  Stylists are amazing- how on earth is it that a pair of black Converse high tops look great with the Schumacher’s Lace in Aqua?  Can’t say that I would have ventured there… but it’s a fun juxtaposition!  Somehow I can’t quite see Chris Martin (her Coldplay hubby) hanging out in that feminine dining room (eating on pink dishes)… maybe he spends his time in the kitchen with the fabulous concrete countertops!  I haven’t read the article yet (I look, I look again, then I read).  The painted wood floors (kitchen) are oh-so close to the exact color I painted the ones in my new (moving this weekend!) office space… nice pick Gwyneth!

I’m venturing to say there will be many more magazine article reviews here on this blog, probably a few lists too.  For now, this wraps up post #1.




  1. I still love Gwyneth! And I’m so excited you’ve joined the blogging world….I’ll definitely be adding this to my daily blog rounds:)

  2. Love it sister!! Can’t wait to read more from you!
