My ultimate dream source would have to be 1st Dibs

Whether it be amazing antiques, vintage fashion to die for, or breathtaking jewels, they truly do have “the most beautiful things on earth”

Good news for the antique lovers of the world: 1st Dibs has just added “English Country House” to their list of special searches.

The collection features everything from antique Wedgwood to William and Mary chairs dating back to the 1600s.

Below are a few of my favorites!


comforts of home

There’s nothing worse than being sick while away from home . . .

Longing for the comforts of a comfy couch, a heavy throw, and a good book, I’ve turned to Ralph Lauren.

His home collection & interiors always seem the coziest and cozy is just what I need about now!

Ralph Lauren in his home office/library

Ralph Lauren┬áliving room – I’m not a particularly big fan of wood paneling but it works here

Ralph Lauren’s dining room

Ralph Lauren Bedding Collection – Indian Cove Lodge

Ralph Lauren NY flagship store – Beautiful architectural detail, love the contrast of the dark woods to the white ceilings

English 19th century Chesterfield sofa available through The Antique Swan on 1st Dibs – okay so not Ralph Lauren, but it would fit in any of his collections. You can’t go wrong with a comfy chesterfield.



P.S.: Sorry it’s been a while since my last post. Be on the lookout for another post this weekend!

Where Am I?
