Inspired by the Arts

A gem of a family

By

From its early days as a Bostonian purveyor of watches and silver, Shreve, Crump & Low – the luxe jewelry emporium that has found a home, too, on Greenwich Avenue — has also been known for its commemorative cups.

Sister acts

By

While the world of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion has in some ways contracted, the sisters’ sense of community and mission of service, always the core of the order, has continued and strengthened.

Terrain, part of a stylish Westport family

By

Terrain is a “sister store” to Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters, so you know there’s something aesthetically pleasing – and eco-minded – going on here. Westport’s lucky enough to have these three URBN siblings within its borders, and we spotlight what’s on offer at Terrain, the “baby,” these days.

A sisterhood of support

By

Members of Sole Sisters, the Greenwich United Way’s Women’s Initiative, may not be related by blood, but their shared passion for philanthropy has created a sisterhood within the organization and has led them to raise more than $2 million to support those in need in the community.

Older sibs are smarter – still

By

Older children tend to have higher IQs than their younger brothers and sisters — anywhere from one to three points. It’s a small difference but a significant one, scientists say, one that can mean the difference between a good and a great school, a good and a great career.

Lush lashes

By

Ditch the mascara and sleep in. We tried a lash lift from Hott Lash in Armonk for longer looking, curled eyelashes with the hopes of cutting a few minutes off of our morning routine.

A charmer on the Hudson

By

When we first met Andy Todd – president of the Greystone on Hudson luxury residential development in Tarrytown – in the late fall of 2016, he toured us around the more than 100-acre site, which opens onto pastoral Taxter Ridge Preserve. Among the houses he had in the works at that time was a charming Dutch Colonial Revival manse – with the characteristic gambrel roof and curved eaves; a turret; and a wrap-around porch – all of which made it at once cozy and commanding.

Aruba, a sun-kissed sojourn

By

Called “The One Happy Island,” Aruba is about 19 miles long in the southern Caribbean Sea, just 15 miles from the coast of Venezuela. Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao form a group referred to as the ABC Islands, with the A island getting more repeat visitors than any other in the Caribbean.
