This summer we are taking our inspiration from traveling and looking at how we can bring some of what makes each destination so special home with us.

Last time we sailed along the French Riviera and were taken with the over the top vacation home of the Baroness Béatrice de Rothchild where gold guilded mirrors, luxe fabrics and ornately carved accent tables and chairs that fill the vast estate. As a palette cleanser, we love the Grand-Hotel du Cap-Ferrat where the look is classic coastal: crisp, clean, and white on white on white.

For the next stop on our travel tour, we head to Morocco.

See Who You Recognize at Sandblast 2016!

There's no denying that we're at peak summer in Greenwich when the annual Sandblast event turns the beach into a temporary 'creativity' gallery, with artisans from all across the local area working diligently on masterpieces soon to be erased by the incoming tide.

Sandblast 2016, co-hosted by Greenwich Arts Council and the Town of Greenwich Department of Parks and Recreation, took place at Greenwich Point Beach on Saturday, July 30.

Kids you say? The property has plenty of room for the short-leggers with the benefits of a traditional cedar swing set already in place. Bigger kids? The house is just steps away from Cos Cob Middle School and mere minutes from Greenwich High School.

This has been a banner year for academic achievement by local-area students - and here at Living Greenwich we love to help spread the word of their accomplishments!

Very early in the year, we were honored to bring you the news of Greenwich High School student, Olivia Hallisey, winning the Google Science Fair Grand Prize (and her celebratory appearance on The Colbert Show).

Recently, there have been two more notable academic attainments by ambitious and talented Greenwich High School students that we think are worthy of mention in this new edition of the Living Greenwich Student Spotlight...

'Escapes' is a recurring feature on Living Greenwich that we put together to serve as inspiration for your future daytrips and 'not-too-far-away' road trips. Have you been somewhere interesting lately? Let us know, and maybe we'll feature it in a future installment!

After hearing much about Millerton, NY, a village just 5 miles North of Sharon, CT, Living Greenwich decided to pay a visit and see for ourselves what makes Millerton such a popular destination for weekenders from New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Located between the hills of Litchfield County and the Berkshires of Massachusetts, Millerton is a wonderful day-trip with much to offer.

Photo Gallery: The 2016 Greenwich Sidewalk Sales Have Commenced

Thursday on Greenwich Avenue, the swelter quotient was off the charts, the sidewalk scene was frenetic with color and activity, and parking was at an absolute minimum. Even more important - the discounts were absolutely everywhere!

That's why, today, Living Greenwich celebrates those among you who braved the summer heat and humidity on opening day to land some early-bird savings at the 2016 Greenwich Sidewalk Sales!

For those of you who may be new to the area, the Sidewalk Sales are an annual tradition organized by the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce - and, this year, the event features over 110 retail stores along (and nearby) Greenwich Avenue offering their once-in-a-year deals to the thousands of shoppers making the sacred pilgrimage with credit cards in hand and ready to shop 'til they drop.

Local Voices: The Natural Beauty of Greenwich is All Around Us

Local Voices: The Natural Beauty of Greenwich is All Around Us

Living Greenwich is proud to bring you another 'Local Voices' feature by Joe 'Boatographer' & Richard DeMarte...

 

There’s a difference between ‘looking’ and ‘really seeing’. That’s the way I like to describe my approach to enjoying so much of the natural beauty in Greenwich that is around us every day.

One example of this beauty can be seen in all 4 seasons and whether you’re in horse country, along the shoreline or on the waters...

I’m referring to the varied and stunning bird-life around us that can amaze and thrill those who take a bit of time to look for it. Having taken over 90,000 photos over just the past 3 years (mostly of birds), I’ve been fortunate and lucky enough to have captured some of these beautiful birds that call Greenwich their home.
