The World is Your Oyster {house}

So much to share, if only I could steal some more hours in the day 

Still adjusting to a school-less "schedule" and trying to escape the perpetual flow of sawdust in our home {project ballast is OOFC}

All the while, grasping onto this fleeting summer, in all it's glory.

Starting the week off with a promise to be more diligent with my precious Valentine -
And to prove I mean business, I'm sharing this utterly charming Rowayton home. 

All the proverbial dream house boxes are checked with this stunner:
The impeccably detailed decor {check}, seeped in heritage {check}, inviting and positively lovely {check/check}, and ahem, 
quite literally on the water.

They had me with this outstanding Oomph lantern in the entryway - 
the rest is is just mignonette on the oyster . . .

"The building was once a working oyster house, one of several that lined the Five Mile River. “We wanted to keep it true to itself and focus on the oyster theme,” says Schuyler. Located in the historic Oysterman’s Row, the home sits next to the community dock, where a flotilla of kayaks and paddleboards rests on the rocky beach. The couple’s own boats—a Hinckley Talaria 44 and Boston Whaler—are tied up at the end of their gangway. “On the weekends when we’re home, guests will drop by in their boats, and we’ll have a glass of wine on the dock,” says Schuyler."

"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans." 
— Ernest Hemingway (A Moveable Feast)
