Tory Goes Trad

Well, I think yesterday we all drank the Haterade and established that Xtina's style of boudior-chic decorating is not really our cup of tea. So today, we turn to a house that could definitely be described as the polar opposite. Picture yourself in Southampton, pulling into the drive of a 1920's manor.

Unlike many Hamptons homes, its owner is intent not to reference the beach, but rather, make it comfortable for year-round living.

 Might we even call it trad? Look at that chintz wallpaper. Nary an ikat, jazzy color, or a zigzag in sight.

Which is sort of surprising considering we're looking at the new home of the queen of color and print, Ms. Tory Burch. 

 The hallway strikes me as kind of deco, maybe with jazz-age references. You expect that black and white hallway to lead down to an indoor pool.

The living room is definitely traditional. And you know what- I think it's kind of a refreshing surprise to see a house that's just pretty. No "it" fabrics, no crazy hollywood regency flair, nothing that would look dated a few years from now. There's obviously a lot going on in this room, but it doesn't look like it's trying too hard.

A lovely outside terrace.

A comfortable pooldeck.

This looks like my idea of heaven.

I just read the full article on her home in Vogue last night. She definitely leads a life of grand things. She can do no wrong in my book.

Just lovely. I wish I was sitting by that pool right now!
