At Home with Dogs and Their Designers: Sharing a Stylish Life

Just In, and quite excited to share a new book by my friends Susanna Salk and Stacey Bewkes. You all might remember this chic duo from the video they produced about Hawthorne awhile back. Stacey pens the wildly popular Quintessence lifestyle blog which includes shooting the At Home with video series along with Susanna. ‘At Home with Dogs and Their Designers: Sharing a Stylish Life’ is written by Susanna and photographed by Stacey. It is the most charming book for all of us dog lovers out there. Just in time for gift giving season, I might add! From Bunny Williams to Charlotte Moss and so many creative & talented designers in-between, they share the story of their pooches–from how they first got them to stylish living tips galore. Big and small dogs of just about every breed are presented in situ, which is so fun seeing each in their visually inspired home. Really quite a gem in so many ways. We have stacks at the shops and are always more than happy to wrap them up and ship them out.



 

 

Our Beloved Hawthorne At Home on QuintessenceBlog.com

Over the moon pleased to announce that the At Home video with Susanna Salk on the Quintessence blog by Stacey Bewkes is now up. Head on over and check it out if you please. It is such a lovely reminder of an incredibly gorgeous October Hudson Valley day.  It snowed a bit this morning in Seattle so it was fun to see the video where it was so sunny and the leaves falling about from the trees.  I think you might remember me writing about this a few months back. It had been pretty cool most of our stay and a bit rainy.  I was crossing my fingers big time for a pretty day as I was setting the long picnic table outside the back porch for a meal.  Well, I got what I was hoping for in spades.  It was a gloriously sunny day.  Actually hot, as it hit 82 degrees.  I mention this as my shirt remained untucked throughout the video as I was running a tad warm.  Also funny Bailey sidenote. TPS was away the day this was shot, visiting his brothers. Bailey would not stop barking in several of the shots so I held her a bunch, hence me holding her to keep her quiet.  Just funny little behind the scenes details–I could not be happier with how it all turned out. Stacey & Susanna are real pros and put it all together so wonderfully from start to finish of this entire project.  Cheers to them! Thanks to Benjamin Moore paints for sponsoring all the greens throughout the house on the walls. Juliska for all those beyond gorgeous plates and glassware on the outside table and to Dunes and Duchess for getting the 2 big green candelabras made for us so quickly and so beautifully.  Cheers to the Hudson Valley!
