Jenny Wolf Interiors, I think I have a crush on you

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

It is very interesting how I stumble upon a designer that catches my eye and then as I research their work, I find I have been attracted to a room they have worked on without knowing it was their creation.
Jenny Wolf is a designer from NYC. I saw a great beach house showcased in Lonny Mag and then found so many other rooms that are just fabulous. I really can relate to her philosophy on design. When working with a client Jenny incorporates things the client loves and has collected over time. She also thinks about the personalities of the people who will be in the room she is working on.

I just love this bedroom. It is from a beach home in Long Beach Island, NJ. The bed should be the star of the bedroom and this one definitely is. Love all the details.
This is another bedroom in the home. Had to include it because I have a weakness for tassels.

This room is from a Hampton's cottage that Jenny Wolf designed. The ceiling is awesome. I like the monochromatic sofa and pillows.

This is from a Tribecca loft. 

So many details yet it remains a serene space.

Neutral but so fabulous. Love the seating.

Thank you Please check out some more of her projects on her website. 


Hobnail, you make me happy

Friday, June 26, 2015

I know I'm weird, but simple little things make me happy. Hobnail is one of them. Maybe because it reminds me of pretty vases in my mom and grandma's homes.
 This blue setting is fromTarget. It coordinates with my all white serving pieces.

This tumbler is from Crate and Barrel. Potterybarn and West Elm also have acrylic outdoor hobnail items.

This beautiful punch bowl set is from Duncan and Miller. Perfect for a bridal shower or ladies lunch.

I found this on Pinterest, by David Bromstad. Love the opaque color

Alittle history on hobnail if you are interested. The design got it's name from studs or projections on sides of glass. A hobnail is a large headed nail used in bootmaking. In 1935, Fenton Art Glass Company made the first hobnail pattern on a lamp base and it all expanded from there.
White milk glassware is highly collectible and is considered the Signature line.
Hope you enjoy hobnail as much as I do, haha .

Table Tops for the Summer

Thursday, June 25, 2015

The Summer usually means impromptu get togethers and planned dinners for close friends and family.  I love setting a great table for my guests. What a treat for your guests to see that you have taken the time to make them feel special.
 This table I found on a great blog, It obviously has a beach vibe but you can take notes of the textures being used. I love the natural colors. The shell trimmed chargers are so perfect.

This photo was from an article about fabulous wedding tables. You can take many ideas from these tables. Love the wood tones and flowers. Wedding table settings are so detailed so you can just grab alittle idea here n there for your dinner.

This is from a Williams and Sonoma site. I personally think you can't go wrong with a crisp white tablecloth and great platters and glasses, all simple, yet elegant. You can use seasonal flowers and candles and you are set.

This is a yummy fig appetizer I tried last summer and I wanted to share it with you.


  • 12 firm but ripe figs, preferably Adriatic figs, stemmed 
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup (4 to 6 oz./125 to 180 g) fresh goat cheese,
      preferably Pennyroyal Farm 
  • 12 paper-thin slices prosciutto 
  • A handful of arugula 
  • Saba for drizzling 
  • Extra-virgin olive oil for drizzling 
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste 


Preheat a hot fire in a grill for grilling over direct and indirect heat.

Using a sharp knife, make a lengthwise slit in a fig starting at the stem end, cutting about three-quarters of the way through the fruit. Gently open the fig and stuff it with 2 to 3 teaspoons of the goat cheese (the amount that will fit will depend on the size of the fig). Press the sides of the fig together to close. Wipe off any goat cheese remaining on the outside of the fig, then wrap 1 slice of the prosciutto around the fig, making sure the opening at the top of the fig is completely covered by the prosciutto. Repeat with the remaining figs, goat cheese and prosciutto.

Thread a metal or wooden skewer horizontally through the center of each fig. Grill the figs over high heat, with the stem end (the side stuffed with goat cheese) facing up, until the bottom is nicely grill marked, about 1 minute. Using the skewer, turn the fig 180 degrees to form crosshatch grill marks and continue grilling about 1 minute more. Flip the figs so that the stem end is now facing down, move to a cooler part of the grill and cover the grill. This will allow the goat cheese to melt without the figs burning. Continue cooking until the goat cheese is just beginning to melt, about 3 minutes.

Remove the figs from the grill and remove from the skewers. Spread the arugula on a platter and arrange the figs on top.  Drizzle some saba and olive oil on top of the figs, season with pepper to taste and serve immediately. Serves 6.

Summer is officially Here

Tuesday, June 23, 2015

I have been working on our beachtown home, which won't be complete for a long time. From time to time I will post on a room or a small space, but I wanted to share with you a few rooms I found that are just awesome for a beach vibe inspiration.
Although they each have a different look, they all create a styled yet comfy, calm, kick your feet up and have a great time feel. Always what I try to accomplish in a room.
 This photo is, the ceiling is a nice addition to a room decorated so perfectly for TV watching as well as conversation. I like how the two wicker chairs are positioned in the room and can be moved elseware as needed for audio all seating. Lots of texture with the wood, glass, and wicker.

This photo is courtesy,and it caught my eye because I have a weakness for crystals. So inviting.

This room was featured on I also showcased it on my Instagram yesterday. So much to look at for inspiration. Love the fringe on the cushions, the piece above the sofa, and the whitewashed piece to the right. I have a similar piece of furniture that was dark wood colored n I painted it a blue/green but I may have to try that finish on it.

I stumbled upon these photos from a blog written by a mother and daughter duo, My design I want to sit down with a cup of coffee and just Linger in this kitchen. The natural wood ceiling is such a highlight to the room. Love the breakfast eating area and the use of darker wood on the floors. 

Happy Summertime Everyone.

Bamboo for Summer 2015 and Beyond

Wednesday, June 3, 2015

Bamboo is everywhere in right now. I really love the look.
A little history about Bamboo. It is the symbol of Intergrity, I thought that was interesting. China is the top producer of bamboo in the world. It is a material that is resistant to stretching and can support weight of more than twice that of other woods.
Ok, enough of that..Lets look at some pretty bamboo inspired items for our homes.
