WAG revisits KD Spain, the Bridgeport-based lifestyle brand of fabric designer Kate Spain and her husband, Pete, who handles the business side of the company. The duo catches us up on their side-by-side work, including details of the new rug collection, eye heart hand, which focuses on sustainable production and was recently installed in public spaces at the Delamar Greenwich Harbor.
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.
Mark Kramer, the man behind Susan Lawrence in Chappaqua, shared holiday entertaining ideas with us in 2011. Today, he’s launched a new Susan Lawrence website and expanded its menus, draws on his own Putnam County garden for ingredients and is working on a cookbook. All the while, he’s also feeding his passion for classical music.
