ABOUT THIS TIME EVERY YEAR, I start looking for good books to read at the beach—and by that I mean “real” books. I like to lose track of time actually turning the pages, which is not something easily done on an iPad.

I also have two kids in middle school, both of whom are mortal enemies of my reading time. I think they can sense the moment when I…

coastal blues

“Blue doesn’t just look good; it makes us feel good, too.”—PHOEBE HOWARD I FELL IN LOVE WITH BLUE long before I became a decorator. Growing up on the beach in Florida, I spent my days a stone’s throw from the ocean, with wide-open skies above.

They were obsessed with it, especially for the interiors of their coastal properties. Very quickly, I came to understand why. Blue connects us to nature more than any other color. But it also connects…
