Do you dream of Newport?

14Sep10

For some reason, I’ve always dreamed of Newport, RI as a place where magic happens. Mansions on the water. Tea parties on the lawn. Sounds decadent and relaxing… pretty much what typical day-to-day life is not. So in my fantasy time, I always seem to drift to Newport.

In honour of this, I am sharing a New York Times article “Who Lives There?” — a great look at a couple for whom Newport became their adopted (yet unstimulating) home.

My favorite line? “An old woman with a boy toy was coming down the stairs,” Ms. Nagy said. “And going up was a young vixen with a very old man. Welcome to Newport.”

Read, enjoy and indulge in your own dream… and take time to browse through the lush pictures. This “quaint” little copy of a French House is sure to make you drool for herringbone floors of your own.
