The 2017 East Hampton Antiques Show

Whenever my schedule allows, I always try to fit in visits to some of my favorite antiques shows - especially when they benefit good causes.

Last week, while on Long Island, I attended the East Hampton Antiques Show Preview Party. The event, now in its 11th year, was held on the bucolic grounds of the 17th century Mulford Farm - right in the heart of East Hampton Village. All ticket proceeds went to the East Hampton Historical Society. The show ran through Sunday, July 23rd, and was filled with a large variety of antiques, art, jewelry, and other vintage collectibles from more than 50 antiques and art dealers.

It was a wonderful summer evening - enjoy these photos.

What an honor to receive the 2017 HC&G (Hamptons Cottages & Gardens) Innovator Award.

Last week, I was presented the "IDA" at the seventh annual HC&G Innovation in Design Awards dinner in Bridgehampton, New York. The event recognizes the very best in up-and-coming design talent across several categories, including architecture, interior design, garden design, kitchen design, bath design and product design. And to top it off, each year, HC&G presents the Innovator Award to an icon and visionary of the design industry - an individual who has achieved an overarching level of innovation and excellence. Past Innovator Award recipients include Richard Meier, Madeline Weinrib, Vicente Wolf, Stephanie Odegard, and Deborah Berke.

I will also be on the covers of HC&G and NYC&G (New York Cottages & Gardens) this September - be sure to pick up a copy. Enjoy these photos. You can also see more photos from the event on the C&G Facebook page - just click on this highlighted link.

My Tropical Plants Around the Farm

I love large urns filled with tropical plants.

As many of you know, I have a rather sizable collection of tropical specimens at my Bedford, New York farm. During the winter, they are all stored in a special greenhouse. Once warm weather arrives, they are brought out for display - some go to my home in Maine, some go to my home in East Hampton, and the remaining plants are placed in various locations here at Cantitoe Corners.

It is a big undertaking to move all these plants at the beginning and end of each season. Thankfully, I have the help of a strong outdoor grounds crew and some heavy duty farm equipment to get the job done - enjoy these photos.
