Savannah's Olde Pink House!

Not sure why it took me 52 years to go to Savannah - I'm going to have to visit many more times to make up for it.  One of our favorite parts of our time there was dinner at the The Olde Pinke House and it more than lived up to all its accolades!

Started off the evening in the bar of this mansion built in 1771.  It's a beautiful space with dark woods, pink (of course) walls and huge windows.  My Woodford Mule was delicious!

There are many spaces for dining and I was particularly pleased that we were seated in this gorgeous room with the sepia toned murals.

Now that's a ginger jar!

The second floor entry area is bathed in an absolutely stunning rich golden yellow.

If you're ever in Savannah, The Olde Pink House is not to be missed.  The meal was fantastic and the surroundings were a dream for anyone who loves design and gorgeous old homes.

My Favorite Architectural Style

This gorgeous house was on my daily walk last week along Cayuga Lake (in the Finger Lakes of NY) and it's my favorite architectural style.  Don't know what it's officially called but I love it!

Notice the browned out grass?  Usually rare for that part of central New York but they've been having alot of sunny days and very few rainy ones.


Here's a glimpse of Cayuga Lake at night; one of the most beautiful areas in the US.

I'm mourning that July is over. I wish every month was July!!!!!!!

Smoky Purple

Here's a gorgeous room from The Urban Electric Co's instagram feed here - I'm pretty sure it's by the very talented Jen Langston.  I'll be doing a long post about her work next because there's just so much to see.  This room is a beautiful smoky purple and I love how she carried the color through to the moldings and the furnishings and paired it all with bleached floors.  And, who needs window treatments when you have those amazing ginger jars?
