I'm fascinated with the brand that fashion designer Tory Burch has built...I am now equally fascinated with her rather regal Southampton estate!
Was browsing around Vogue's website and noticed they had a bit about Tory's stunning home in the Hamptons. Very traditional but a place I could certainly all home!
With the help of architect and designer Daniel Romualdez, and decorator Eve Hood, Tory created a grand home that also looks extremely comfortable and accessible.
I read this New York Magazine article on Tory Burch and her ex-husband Chris Burch this weekend while driving out to my parents' house with my sis DS. What was most interesting about the article was reading about how Tory's company got started and has grown. She had a vision and made it happen. Just a few years after starting her company, Tory Burch the brand is valued in the billions. Wow.
So let's see...Tory is fashionable, has a fantastic country house, and has built an amazing business...not to mention she's a mom of 3! My design crush and friend of COCOCOZY Jonathan Adler might have to inch over a bit and make some room for Tory Burch on my design icon bench!
Anyhooo...here's Tory's little country house...
