Location  •   Connecticut

This week we are bringing you inside our home to discuss a topic that’s been highly requested: paint colors!

From picking a paint brand to choosing a finish, a lot of time goes into contemplating and swatching to find a color that is just right. Since I live and breath New England aesthetics, I was determined to stick to a colonial color pallet for our home using five shades maximum.

3 Country Stores Worth Visiting In Vermont

March 18th, 2019
Location  •   Vermont

While visiting Vermont, our crew decided to pop into a few country stores. We found the local shops hidden in the rolling hills of rural New England, tucked in a snow-covered ski village, and nestled on a historic route. Country stores are small town shops that sell a wide variety of goods. Basically, they’re a one-stop shopping center! Picture a local-run shop lined with departments catering to everything from deli meats to skincare products. Country stores have it all and no state does it quite like Vermont! Today we have our newest TCC Crew Member, Lauren recapping what we think are…

A Farmhouse Cabin Getaway & Vermont Itinerary

March 5th, 2019
Location  •   Quechee, VT

March is a hit or miss month here in New England. One day we could be knee-deep in snow (with more snow on the horizon) and the next we could be planting hydrangeas while seeding the lawn in anticipation for spring. New England weather is difficult to gauge, but the unpredictability of March creates stress when planning a getaway. So far, this year’s winter weather has extended into March – as we continue to see dropping snowflakes and temperatures. With a need for a getaway and another reason to bundle up, our team decided to head north to Quechee, Vermont.    Whether you’re traveling from…
