Guilty Pleasure

We will fully come clean with our guilty pleasure for Bethenny Frankel and all of her reality television.  We’ve laughed and cried with her over the years on BravoTV while she got married, had a baby, built her Skinnygirl empire, and now as she faces her separation and divorce from Jason.

While many of us (you can admit it too!) watched her and Jason buy, renovate and decorate with the Mariette Himes Gomez (“girls”!) over the last season, we were thrilled to see the final results in the new Traditional Home. Check out the finished home!

Flat Vernacular – we’ve posted about them quite a bit (here and here), but here’s another one. We were so excited to see new installation photos yesterday of this incredible pattern – on walls AND ceiling.

Wouldn’t you want to dress in this closet each morning? How could you not feel elated to start the day?!!

Anyway…outside of fabulous interior design at Round Hill (check out this great write up by Cote de Texas and this by us last week) we’re also totally enamored by the Round Hill logo…

Excited to share a fun, preppy island project of Locust Valley based designer Meg Braff’s today…just three days before Anne jets down to the same resort, Round Hill in Jamaica, for a last hurrah babymoon!  We’re totally obsessed with Braff’s design for this private villa, and especially the pink retro-style umbrella above.

After what feels like weeks and weeks of dreary gray NYC weather, can’t wait for some bright sun and blue skies! See you soon, Round Hill!
