— Newsday
It may be Fall, but the book  I received  in the mail for review this past Summer keeps me ensconced in the sunny outdoors and in my very favorite enclave known as "The Hamptons".  I relish in the opportunity to relive the beautiful wonders of Summer in the East End of Long Island by perusing the gorgeous pages of OUT EAST.  You may remember I reviewed Jennifer Ash Rudick's former book, PALM BEACH CHIC awhile back.  

OUT EAST is equally impressive featuring fantastical, over the top well manicured homes and gardens as well as others a bit simple and rustic.  But, all featured are stellar, and I happily add them to my list of "garden goals" for summer 2018.  With encroaching deer in our East Hampton garden, it becomes aspirational to dream of open fields peppered with cobalt blue hydrangea and bucolic rolling green hills.  But, a girl can dream, and this book aspires to the garden dreamer in all of us.  It takes the typical garden coffee table book to another level by showing the natural beauty combined with the hard work and labor of many East End landscape talents and interior designers offering a comprehensive look at home design.

To me, the Hamptons is still one of the prettiest places I've ever seen, and this book brings it all to light, beautifully- a lovely mix of country and sea mingled together.  Pick up a copy of this beautiful book here!
