TRAVEL

The New Poconos

The iconic image representing the Poconos has morphed from a couple sitting in a giant Champagne glass-shaped hot tub full of pink bubbles into kids careening down a water slide or snow tubing. The Pocono Mountains, about two hours from Fairfield County, are much more known now for family fun than kitschy honeymoons. Read More…

DESIGN

Gilles Clement, Interior Designer and Bon Vivant

I was born in Paris, France, into a family of artists. My parents, Serge and Marina Clement have been famous painters for as long as I can remember and lived in a Hotel Particulier where they were always organizing parties with friends who were movie directors, actors, painters, sculptors, industry heirs, along with fashion designers and cloth makers. It was sort of an urban jungle with guests like Milos Forman, Jack Nicholson, Joe Dalessandro, Grace Jones, Umberto Ecco…Read More…

PREtty FABulous ROOMS with Leta Austin Foster

Leta Austin Foster started her interior design business in Palm Beach in 1975. Her career quickly took off after Imogen Taylor of Colefax & Fowler spotted Foster’s design work, inviting her to London for an apprenticeship and hiring her to work for the label in Palm Beach. With access to a top-tier clientele, Foster became highly sought after and has since retained many of her client relationships for over 40 years. Read More…

LIFESTYLE

LOOK Faces of Philanthropy and HOBBS London Fashion: Janie and Lyle Gestal
Jumping in Feet First

When she returned to Greenwich after a 12-year absence, Janie Gestal was asked by a friend to serve on the board of the Inner-City Foundation. “I jumped in feet first,” says Janie. It didn’t take long for her grown daughter, Lyle to jump in right along with her. That’s the way it is with the Gestals: embracing life and challenges together at every turn. Read More…

LOOK Faces of Philanthropy: Adrianne Singer – A Greenwich Town Champion

Adrianne Singer’s touch is felt throughout Greenwich. It’s in the systems that help run the town’s government, in the transparency that keeps residents informed, in pioneering efforts to address domestic violence, and it’s in the countless lives she’s improved. Today, after decades of tireless commitment to the Town, Adrianne is being honored by Laurel House as a Greenwich Town Champion. Read More…

YMCA of Greenwich – Swimming to Success

The YMCA pool lies behind a shimmering glass curtain of windows. Stand close and you can almost hear the water splashing and laughter bubbling up. The swim programs at the YMCA is vibrant, thriving, and growing stronger. Home to the YMCA Swim School and the Marlins Swim Team, the YMCA has everyone in the pool. Historically, the Swim School and the Marlins program were not just separate, they competed with each other. Read More…

LOOK Health and Fitness: Rest, Recover, Repeat

Just last week, my 17-year-old son came home complaining of a pinched nerve in his shoulder. He is an athlete and rows all year round. Actually, I would say he is a newer athlete. He came into his own at 16. He has to row 5 days a week and weight train about three times a week. This sparked me to delve a little more into what we, as athletes (and that goes for all of us, even if you get on that Peloton three times a week), can do to properly rest and recover -so that whatever we do we do it well, and we are strong. Let me say, this research isn’t just for my son, it’s for me as well. Read More…

LOOK Faces of Philanthropy: Cricket Lockhart and Grace Djuranovic
Philanthropy Runs in the Family

Cricket Lockhart and Graci Djuranovic are a dynamic mother-daughter philanthropic duo. As Graci says, “My family members’ commitment to service and the community has been a consistent theme in my life.” For Graci, this model for community involvement began when, in 7th grade, she had just moved to Greenwich and enrolled in Greenwich Academy.

The Producers – Three Talented Local Females Take On Film Stereotypes

When the political thriller An Acceptable Loss debuts in movie theaters around the country this month, a trio of Greenwich women will be keeping close watch on the box-office receipts. They’ll also be hoping their friends have a sharp eye for detail — and can spot them in a dramatic scene with Hollywood stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Tika Sumpter. Read More…
