We spent an inspiring few days experiencing a new boutique hotel called TOURISTS Welcome in North Adams, MA. It was a bit of a drive from New York (around 3–4 hours), but it was a really nice getaway and extra nice there were so many places to visit nearby such as MASS MoCA and Clark Art Institute for a healthy dose of art and architectural serenity. Thank you to TOURISTS Welcome for hosting us for the preview opening weekend filled with nature, art, exploration and adventure! Looking forward to visiting again soon; maybe for the fall foliage in a few months...that will definitely be a sight to see.

In collaboration with TOURISTS Welcome; thoughts and opinions are my own.
The sun has finally decided to show and I am so excited to finally enjoy the warmer temperatures coming out of what feels like an extremely long winter. We spent a blissful few days visiting our favorite stores around town to gather some essential homewares, florals, bites, and of course, a few bottles of S.Pellegrino to enhance a summer gathering into a special moment.
We made a charcuterie plate! The perfect pairing with a bottle (or two) of S.Pellegrino. But first...
We first stopped by Flatiron, our favorite neighborhood to shop for furniture and home design goods. There are multiple stores all within walking distance of one another and they always provide a plenitude of inspiration.
We love picking up some fresh baked goods and other culinary treats from local and gourmet supermarkets, which provide an interesting assortment to choose from. Paired with S.Pellegrino, we know the meal will come together perfectly.
SoHo and the East Village also have a multitude of nice stores that offer a wonderful selection of home accents, tableware, and jewelry from local & international artists.
We've been wanting to visit the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket since we've moved to Brooklyn, and I'm so happy the weather is nice to finally do so! There are so many great farmers and producers, and I can't wait to be back. Scarborough Fields & Flowers Plants (shown here) has the most well-kept plants and the selection is just lovely. Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and Brooklyn Museum are also in very close proximity!
