Friday Folly


I have this most incredible book that I purchased on a whim years ago in Chattanooga, TN of all places, Designing The Hamptons: Portraits of Interiors, features scores of beautiful homes designed and photographed by some of the industry greats. I was flipping (drooling) though the pages the other day when I came across this home owned by Bill Sofield and Dennis Anderson. The home is lovely, but it was this delightful poolside gazebo that really caught my attention. I love the crazy mix of influences and unique finds, those awe-inspiring windows, the grand mirror and the mirrored chandelier. Fantasy come to life in the most unexpected of places!

Pool house, tea house, tree house...

I need one and all.
This is one is better than most.

Cheers!

I'm sure the HOA wouldn't mind if I plopped one of those in the back yard.
