TGLJuly2014

Around the pound, ringing in our nation’s birth month was a happy highlight for 2014. For the past seven years, we’ve fêted our country’s independence from afar, (mind you, by from afar, we mean galavanting on the shores of Como and traversing the hills of Tuscany, so no, we’re not complaining). That said, to bask in the glow of fireworks on our own American soil felt especially sweet, made even more delightful by the fact we did so perched on a rock wall in our newly adopted City-by-the-Sea, in the dear company of family + friends.

Behind the scenes at Summerset, interior progress is in full swing. Thanks to our creative collaboration with Pallie-in-Design CFK Interiors, we’ve got delectable details coming together every way we turn. It seemed only fitting that we dedicate our July Precious Objects series to some of our favorite additions to the gilded getaway house, which is shaping up to be the perfect slice of seaside ingenuity we envisioned. Overdyed indigos, crisp linen whites, reclaimed wood and awning stripes. And because it’s our utmost goal to live life by the golden rule, an abundance of classic style with a ‘pinch of glam’.

Lynn and Lawrence

Lynn & Lawrence, the textile brand-child from Jessica Lynn + Simon Lawrence, couldn’t be more fittingly suited to a life by the sea. The duo, one from Manhattan, the other Yorkshire, model their knitted beanies from the traditional handknit fisherman’s woolly. Lovingly crafted from some of our favorite fibers (alpaca and wool), each piece is a nod to the pair’s fondness for all things casual and coastal (sea and surfing to be exact). ‘Cousteau’ and ‘Sailor conjure images of off-shore expeditions from decades past, charming chaps and dashing lads reeling in the daily catch in effortless fashion. As if their simplistic beauty wasn’t motive enough, each piece is delicately tagged + numbered, and comes with a limited-edition zine, Autumn Toast, packaged in a cute-as-a-button ticking pouch. Accessories of the jewelry sort more your thing? The pair also offers a smattering of handmade gems, each classically nautical with a pinch of glam, just the way we like ’em.
