As far as your INTERIORS or EXTERIORS are concerned, May signals all things outdoors and in my opinion being outdoors = HAPPINESS. I think we all nearly perfected our outdoor spaces over the past year during the pandemic. But, what I am finding this year is I want to make my outdoor space even MORE beautiful!! Here are ways I am going to do this…

MY 5 FAVORITE INTERIORS TIPS
If you are lucky enough to have the space and 2 substantial trees to hang a hammock, good on you. If not, there are several options out there for hammocks both for hanging and size constraints. Too many to list but HERE is one I will be enjoying this summer.
AN HERB POTAGER
I love to cook and I love to grow herbs, tomatoes, veggies etc. I always get so excited to plant my kitchen potager but oftentimes realize midsummer that my plans were a bit overachieving, aka too much to manage. This year I have planted a very manageable kitchen potager and rather than planting everything I love thus overwhelm in a few months I went deeper on the few things I use over and over again. Basil, mint, thyme and rosemary. Voila. Simple and the anxiety over planting too much and maybe not eating everything is eliminated.
THE BAR IS OPEN
I have a bar set-up indoors year round, why not have one outside? THIS table is just the thing for an outdoor bar. Fill it with your favorite cocktail mixers, melamine glasses, a small vase and a water pitcher and you are ready for anyone who just happens to drop by.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT URNS?
I am always drawn to the seductive shapes and the various ways to use them. Whether it be as anchors in the garden filled with boxwoods or flanking a doorway planted with white geraniums. The options are endless and always so appealing.
THE CITY OF LIGHTS
I was in Paris with a dear friend a few years ago and celebrated her birthday at the most beautiful restaurant. The company was delightful as always; the meal was tremendous but what I continue to obsess over is the cordless crystal lamp on the table. What an elevated source of light! I haven’t quite found that exact lamp but I did find THIS variation and quite enjoy the mobility and design.
