After a long wait and many a leak via social media, Hygge & West has at last launched its wallpaper collaboration with the pattern-happy, granny chic New York design team Tilton Fenwick, aka Anne Maxwell Foster and Suysel dePedro Cunningham.
I’ve featured Tilton Fenwick many times on this blog, but just to refresh your memory on their design style:

Now Hygge & West has partnered with them to launch their first line of wallpaper. Inspired by their travels in Portugal, the duo’s new line encompasses 5 patterns in 4-6 colorways using the pair’s signature colors of blue/green, coral, and indigo, as well as neutrals. It’s definitely right up Hygge’s happy alley.

A Newport Inspired Entry
If you believe social media, everyone seems to be sipping Negronis by the sea this summer, sans hangover, except you. (I laughed so hard I cried reading that link!) Everyone is so classy yet so relaxed, so traveled but so New England … in a word, so very, very Newport! So I decided to pretend that I was one of them and pulled together an entry inspired by Tilton Fenwick’s style and that lovely, upscale (but salt-of-the-earth, oh yes!) town. Enjoy!
The HH’s Classic, Failsafe Negroni
If you want to make a killer Negroni, I’ve included my Handsome Husband’s recipe. If you have more than two, make sure that you either, 1) have someone to wake up with the kids at 5:30 AM or, 2) that you’re under the age of 30 and still metabolize alcohol like a college student.
1 oz. St. George Botanivore gin
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Dolin Sweet Vermouth
Pour over ice, shake, and drain into cocktail glasses. Add an orange peel garnish if desired. Enjoy at home or in Newport!
BTW, my HH actually thinks that his acronym should stand for “Helpful Husband” or “Humble Husband,” the latter rather disproving itself, don’t you think? 😉
