A visit with Tricia Foley...

I wrote this last night (via my blackberry) from my beautifully appointed white decorated guest room at designer Tricia Foley's house on Long Island. What a beautiful place and an idyllic setting complete with simple, charming interiors decorated with very special collections of china, glass, and spectacular pieces of antique furnishings. We (I and my traveling assistant, Sally) came by car and ferry to the Eastern tip of Long Island. The home is just as you would expect: gracious rooms unfolding with layer upon layer of neutral textured fabrics, sisal carpets and finely crafted accessories both new and old linked by beauty and craftsmanship. We met and dined with Tricia and her assistant, Roy, at a local eatery. We shared design and magazine experiences and recalled stories and fun with mutual friends. Tomorrow we begin shooting this special home. Photographing the lovely spaces and personal design style of our host. I can't wait to share this very special house tour with all of you, along with Tricia's favorite ideas for summer.
