A Vermont Weekend

Andrew and I escaped to Vermont this past weekend for a little R&R at The Woodstock Inn & Spa. It was my Christmas gift from Andrew (including a few spa treatments- which was so lovely) and it was quite a relaxing and refreshing time away.

The Inn is beautiful and full of such wonderful staff.  We plan to come back with Henry soon as it’s super kid friendly.   The decor is the stuff of New England perfection.  Like the library with glossy blue millwork and an upholstered ceiling.

The lobby is a beautiful duck egg blue offset by rustic herringbone floors and lots of beautiful art and blue and white ceramics.

The town is super charming as well– the old homes are spectacular.  I almost died of the cuteness of this house which had an LL Bean tote embroidered with “Mail” hanging on a hook by the front door.

It doesn’t get more quintessentially New England than a good ol’ covered bridge.

I was SO excited to finally go to Farmhouse Pottery in person.  I have some of their pieces and they have become such a hit with designers and stylish people alike.  The studio and shop is insanely charming. I wanted to buy ALL THE THINGS.

LOOOOOOOOVE.

This place makes me want to burn my whole house down and start over.

I lost my mind over these sheep sculptures/stools.  The brown and white one at left… OMG, I want him. They are VERY expensive so I could not justify it. I wanted to, but Andrew kept me from doing anything insane.

There is a bit of blue making it’s way into some of their pieces, a a little pattern too!  Also, they have a curated selection of linen items as well.

Watching them work int he studio was so cool. And made me want to dig in and get my hands dirty.

We also stopped in at The Antiques Collaborative nearby and spotted lots of goodies!

These lanterns made me weak in the knees.  Minus the white bulbs. That patina though….

A cool marble side table and perfect little framed etching.

The color in this hatbox is original to the 1800’s. Isn’t that wild? Reminds me of Farrow & Ball’s Arsenic shade.  This old ship painting would be fab in a beach house den or bedroom.

Gorgeous period hardware and a stunning collection of butterflies.

After that we went to Simon Pearce in Quechee for lunch.  Their restaurant and bar are SO delicious and gorgeous.  I think the salad I had was one of the best of my life.

A gathered some items that encompass classic Vermont/ New England style after being inspired this weekend.
