Free Style

If spring is about re-birth, re-committing ourselves to our goals and re-inventing ourselves, summer is about letting it be.

Laurie and Kelsey have each moved to smaller homes this year.  In the process of down-sizing, they've found a freedom in the ruthless editing that down-sizing requires.

Getting Lost in Morocco

For inspiration on our latest European shopping trip, we wanted to stretch ourselves outside our French comfort zone.

Linen for All Ages

Linen is one of those things.   It  signifies summer with a polish that tanks and denim shorts just can't manage.  And it's as beautifully chic on a woman of 20 as it is on a woman of 65.

Down Time | Hobbies with the Elsie Green Team

Nurturing hobbies outside work is essential when you work in a creative field.  If we don't take time to fill up the well of inspiration, it runs dry.

Summer Dresses and Their Dream Destinations

Recently, my fellow EG girl Sepi texted my mother and I a dress she was eyeing online, and asked us, "Does this dress want to go to Italy?" The answer was obviously yes. But then it started a longer conversation between the three of us, sending pretty summer frocks back and forth and dreaming of all the beautiful places we could wear them.

City Guide | Brooklyn

I like to think of Brooklyn as Manhattan's equally chic but a bit more understated twin sister. The food and culture is equally excellent, but with bigger closets and more room to breathe (but still no in-unit washer/dryers). While I still make the pilgrimage into Manhattan multiple times per week for nights out and fabulous dinners I can't afford, I've come to appreciate Brooklyn for all it has to offer.

City Guide | San Juan

To escape the grey New York winter, I recently traveled to San Juan, Puerto Rico. To say I was floored by the natural beauty, kind locals, and delicious food is an understatement.

Collectors at Heart | Design Books

All of us at Elsie Green are collectors at heart: we love to gather pretty things that make our house feel like a home. One of our favorite things to collect is design books. Not only do they look beautiful on your coffee table or stacked up next to your bed, but they are a constant source of inspiration. Whenever we need a fresh idea or just to look at something beautiful, we can always turn to our design library.
