Happy Friday everyone! Now that the humidity has temporarily subsided in the DC area, I can't stop thinking about spending all of my time outside. I wish I could say I'll be jetting off to the Hamptons or some other fabulous coastal retreat this weekend, but I'll be kicking around DC with a long list of home-related errands. Of course I'll have to fit in some outdoor cocktailing....
Since I haven't made it to the beach yet this summer (where are my priorities!?), I've been looking through back issues of my favorite shelter mags for beachy inspiration. One of my all-time favorites comes from the July/August 2009 issue of Elle Decor. Our very own tastemaker feature girl, Aerin Lauder graced the cover and opened the doors to her gorgeous homes in Manhattan and East Hampton.
I can't say this enough: she's living the good life. Hope you enjoy these photos. You can read the article on the Elle Decor website And I seriously hope you're spending this amazing weekend poolside, lakeside, or oceanside!
