Habitually Chic Field Trip to Connecticut!
Recently, interior designer Allison Caccoma was kind enough to invite me along for a little field trip to Connecticut and of course I jumped at the chance to get out the city for a day! First we met with the wonderful team at Moffly Media in Westport who publish a bunch of great regional magazines for the Connecticut area. I especially loved AtHome which I begged them to bring to New York and/or the national market. We could use some new home magazines!
After a wonderful lunch, we hit the amazing stores! My favorite was definitely Dovecote! It was full of great new and vintage furniture, books, accessories, candles, jewelry and more. When we arrived they were in the middle of restyling the store so I want to thank them for quickly putting things together so I could take some photos for you. If you have not been to this store in person, you must get there soon! You will find great pieces for your clients and also yourself! If I owned a store, I would want it to look and feel like Dovecote! You can check out what I bought at the end! Happy Shopping!

This is too funny—I just posted about how much I missed Dovecote last week! Such an amazing store with such exquisite taste. I actually bought the exact same straw bag. I’d hoped to carry it to the beach, but it wound up by my bed holding a stash of magazines… C’est la vie, at least it still looks chic : ) Great post!
cute. love your last photo- so girly/summery.
Neo-Traditionalist – that’s so funny! I absolutely fell in love with Dovecote and of course had to buy something! My bag is currently sitting on the floor holding books! I think we were separated at birth!
Maison 21 – thanks! I can’t wait to wear my new necklace! How all is well in LA!
Great photos. Looks like a wonderful place.
This shop looks fab – I wish it were not so far away. Next time….xv
a favorite of mine – another wonderful shop pickets in fairfield – check out their link http://www.picketsfairfield.com/
Oh! Wait. Whaaaat? I regularaly loiter style-wise in Westport, getting drowsy from the repetitivly boring antique formula there – how have I missed this? Thank you!
Looks like a fabulous store!
Love this! I could tell just looking at the storefront. Thanks for sharing the inside pictures! Looks like a great trip.
Oh gosh! Probably I good thing I haven’t been, think I would likely hyperventilate and pass out over all the goodies!
C’est très cher, no? (just practicing with ya!)
Why great store and what fun. Next time I want an invite to CT! I’m in NY as well!!!
Love Dovecote! Being right next door in Darien, we visit it often for our decorating needs! Their accessories are always great for finishing projects!
I love dovecote!!! I used to do all their windows!
What a lovely store. I want all of the goodies from the store. Those orange lamps are divine.
Why can’t I find a store in Houston with that stash? I want those orange and red lamps!
What an amazing shop! I wish I could pop on over for a look-see!
Thanks for the mention Heather!
Do you happen to know the name of the book in this post with the red coral on the bookend?? I see it everywhere and I would love to get a copy
