I love the fall season; boots, jackets, crisp air....no more humidity! One of many new staples I'm going to buy after I have this baby is a tweed jacket - with elbow pads. I love this one, seen on The Sartorialist.

Our non existing entry way now kinda exists... When you enter our apartment, you walk right straight smack into our "dining room" - no entry way, no little vestibule, just the dining room table. So I thought I needed to create a "landing strip" as my dear friend S recommended. So, I took a spin online and saw this funky eames hang it all (pricey for a coat rack but could pass for a work of art, at least that is what I'm telling myself), so i put the hang it all up, added the chair and voila, a place for my handbag, Conor's yoga bag and hooks for light to heavy coats.

This new old chair has been with our family forever, knocking around. My dad gave it to me, along with a bunch of other pieces of furniture after we bought our place upstate. I kept threatening to reupholster it myself, or get someone to do it:) but years (literally) went by and I finally asked Conor to give it to Salvation Army. A few days later, the chair appeared in our apartment, the next day in the our elevator, I met a lovely designer and her upholster guy and voila! I love it. BEFORE

Our farmhouse in upstate New York (under 2 hours from NYC) will be available for rent for the winter months. We will be out of town most of December and into January and with a newborn, i doubt we will be using it much till spring!
Here are some details about the house, it is situated in a gorgeous area, close to all the Hudson Valley has to offer: great restaurants, theatre, shopping and for winter outdoor enthusiasts; skiing in the Berkshires, cross country, sledding etc...
Here is the link with more information
