PRIVET HOUSE - NEW PRESTON, CT

The powerful abstract by Meighan Morrison, Pr of yellow chairs 19thc France,If you live in the Northeast, you've felt that first hint of Fall.  The cool breeze in the evenings that means the hottest days of Summer are fading, and the leaves will start their electric color show soon!   There is no better way to enjoy the Fall season like a weekend drive.  With all the car rental options today, it's never been easier to enjoy an inpromtu day trip, or overnight getaway.   There are few parts of the country more beautiful than North West corner of Connecticut.   Town after town filled with manicured town greens, historic homes, charming cafes, and some of the chicest home decor / antique shops you'll find anywhere!Napoleon III Chesterfield - 1930's France, covered in charcoal denim -Table also 19thc France - Napoleon III Yellow bowls - hand painted from Turkey - All the pillows made using vintage African Kente Cloth

New Preston is such a town, and Privet House is a popular destination for all things interior.  The store carries an impressive range of housewares, furniture, artwork, and fashion accessories that will tantalize even the most experienced shopper.   Every time I walk into Privet House I'm stopped in my tracks by the creative vignettes the creative team of professionals pulls together.  Case in point - the striking black and white abstract paintings by Meighan Morrison.  Her work is gaining attention from some serous art collectors. The best part - you never know what will jump out at you.  It might be the latest line of candles from Paris, pillows covered in vintage fabric, modern art, or even the hottest new line of fashion or accessories in the curated pop-up space next door - Privet Lives.   While Privet House has become known for developing a following for certain brands, in Privet Lives they celebrate the novelty of pop-up store experience in 6 to 8 week shopping opportunities.   One of the most popular recent pop-ups FIGUE.  You'll always find something new at Privet House & Privet Lives.

Don't let the good taste scare you, the store is known for the wide price range they offer.  It's all about style, not pricepoints.   You might find something you love selling for $20.00, or then again it might be $5,000.00.  That's the sign of great taste - not pretentious - but eclectic and beautiful.

Luxury Home Sale of the Summer

Friends in the New York tri-state area... if you have access to a car - you should get in it and drive to New Preston, Ct. this weekend.   The famed PRIVET HOUSE emporium of all things chic is having thier annual "backyard sale" under the tent,  for one day only.   The sale draws a dedicated crowd every year, as those in the know, know Privet House has incredible items all year long, with excellent bargains at the sale.  The store also brings together a network of antique dealers and unique makers that normally don't sell directly to the public.   They don't say exactly what will be there.. but you know it's good.    Remember - One Day Only - Saturday June 7th.  (click images to shop the store's fun to navigate website).

Make it a weekend.  There are very affordable inns and bed and breakfast spots just a few sun filled, rolling country roads away.  The village of Washington Depot is around the corner, and Sharon is just up the road.  In that quaint little town you can stay at the Sharon Country Inn (recently renovated from top to bottom).  Also home to one of the best BBQ spots in the North-East - When Pigs Fly South.  Cross the line into NY state to reach Millerton, NY - where you can spend a lazy afternoon eating, shopping, and even checking out the latest Hollywood blockbuster or indie film at the art-house style Movie House.   This laid back town also has a super chic teahouse that has become it's own destination - Harney & Sons.  (it started here).

See you under the tent.  If you can't make it to the Sale.. click around the site.. they also have a easy-as-a-snap web-store with so many great finds!
