Lately on Instagram

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a great 4th of July weekend. Ours started out rainy and wet but ended with two perfect days of sunshine. We captured some of our favorite moments from our weekend in Watch Hill, RI on Instagram. Below right, a sweet pair of oyster paintings at the Matunuck Oyster Bar.

We forgot our beach towels in New York but luckily found these super chic Turkish T towels at Huxter Goods in downtown Watch Hill. The towels are terrycloth on one side and cotton on the other and fold up much smaller and compact than your average towel. They were a hit on the beach! The famous Ocean House was having a fabulous 4th of July event on the beach complete with navy blue star-printed tents.

Last week we were out and about quite a bit shopping for projects. Below right, a gorgeous Chinese red console, and left, a pair of colorful porcelain planters.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now and I think it is really informative. A question for you ladies: do you recommend full drapery panels or nonmoveable dummy panels? I’m debating cost and longevity for my living room, and I’m wondering if moveable/closeable panels are necessary.

  • Lauren

    In terms of drapery panels, we typically recommend our clients make operable drapes, meaning drapes that have the ability to close all the way. However, if you are looking to cut costs, non-operable drapes use a lot less fabric. Does your living room get a lot of light? Are you worried about preserving any special fabrics on your upholstered furniture? If so, operable panels are probably the way to go. If you’re not worried about your furniture, or if you don’t think you will ever want to close your drapes, just make sure that your upholster makes the non-operable panels at least two widths of fabric wide. Hope this helps!
