Winter in the Adirondacks

I was thinking how nice it would be to post a something snowy on this first day of winter and magically, the perfect house came to me.  APT with LSD on Vogue.com toured the family home of Amanda Brooks in the Adirondacks.  Looks like a beautiful place to spend Christmas.  For all the details, check out the full story online and don’t miss Amanda’s I Love Your Style website.  I’m still sick and definitely going back to bed! Later Skaters!

    Thta is exactly what we European think about when we imagine a nice place for American holidays in the mountains.

    My first impulse in connecting NYC and cabins was to remember the cabin that Carrie Bradshaw went to in Sex and the City – it belonged to her boyfriend Aidan and the episode was called “Sex and the Country”.

    She might have been more at home here! It looks a bit more her speed!

    Feel better!

    Dear Heather,

    This looks heaven and is so far away from the Christmas we’ll be celebrating here in Sydney!
    Missing my beloved Sweden at this time of the year, but the lapping South Pacific Ocean and Summery fun helps wash the blues way! 🙂

    Have a fabulous Christmas and New Year. Thank you for all the wonderful posts and inspiration during 2010.

    I hope to hear back from you re a potential guest post for Marija Stephen’s family over at Holding Forth.

    Be safe and have a fun holiday!

    Think this would be my ideal Christmas setting. And poor, poor Santa. Sure those were some damn good cookies.
