This stunning Cape Cod retreat belongs a Boston philanthropist who grew up summering on the island. When it finally came time for a space of her own she turned to Hutker Architects, decorator Richard Hallberg and C.H. Newton Builders to create the relaxed, yet polished interior. An incredible lesson in interior design and this weeks addition to my Inspired Interiors Series.

A neutral palette dominates throughout the house, spotlighting the homeowners impressive art collection. When I spoke to the homeowner afterwards, I asked how he got into art collecting.

What’s not to love about San Fransisco? Views of the bay, amazing food, no need for a gym membership (the hills are killer!), world class wine just a short drive away, and the weather – sublime.

On my recent trip to SF, I was intentional in not overbooking myself, I wanted to have time and space to explore the city as I wanted.  Which naturally resulted in an afternoon of discovering gorgeous interior design and decor shops in the incredibly stylish Presidio Heights.  While there was so much to take in, including a shop devoted entirely to ribbon, can you imagine!  My favorite discovery was Hudson Grace.
