One of the fun things about tidying up is finding old magazines in your stash, opening the pages and discovering that your taste has not changed a bit in six years.
This is the East Hampton's home of Donna Karan, designed by Bonetti Kozerski, who also did a bunch of the furniture.
Karan's "spa house" was featured in the February 2005 issue of (the now defunct) House & Garden.
I would still take this place in a hot sauna second.
Lest you think it's not possible to duplicate such a look in your own spa-home-to-be, note the white back cushions paired with the black and white striped seat cushions in the next photo.
I apologize in advance for showing you yet another photo of my sofa, but check out the striped seat with the white cushions.
OK, that was a stretch.
Not so much of a stretch is the artwork in the dining room, featured only in House & Garden (I could not find an image online.) It's by Karan's late husband Stephan Weiss.
It looked so familiar because I had knocked it off years ago.
A mini version is part of my permanent floor gallery.
This home also explains my six-year yearning for some tree stumps for DIY side tables.
I'm going upstate in two weeks. They have trees up there.
