Fogo Island Inn

Check out this amazing new place to stay in Newfoundland, an area that seems to bridge the gap between the new world and the old.

Amazing, right?

Elements for a new bath

Free standing tub, classic or modern.

Great flooring.

Waterworks sink.

Killer sconces. seventies vibe, classic or slightly mid-century:

Feather light from Vitra.  Will this get matted up in the steam from a shower, I wonder?  Maybe I'll put it in the dressing room.

Terence Conran at JCP!

I read in Elements of Style that JC Penney carried Jonathan Adler and I immediately clicked over to see what the offerings were.  I was jubilent to see that Terrence Conran has a collection there as well...
Thank you Erin Gates & Architectural Digest.

Check out some of the great pieces!

Cole's Greenwich Village

I can't wait to try out Cole's in Greenwich Village, NYC next week.  Designed by Steven Gambrel, the 3 room restaurant looks classic and inviting.

Topping Rose House

Though I've yet to try it, last year Tom Colicchio began overseeing the new Topping Rose House hotel and restaurant in Bridgehampton, New York.  Housed in an 1842 Greek Revival mansion, the 75-seat dining space opened in September to rave reviews. 

This spring marks the inn's debut.  The property holds the main dwelling and four nearby cottages totaling 22 rooms and includes a one-acre farm, a spa and a pool that looks out to a crab-apple orchard.
Here are some screen grabs from the website.
