Get the Look: Refined Retreat

We recently shared our House Tour: Refined Retreat, as designed by Andrea Schumacher of Andrea Schumacher Interiors. The primary residence feels like a restful resort, thanks to a “mountain meets the Hamptons” vibe. Exquisitely tailored pieces anchor each room, allowing unexpected found objects to breathe life and personality into the home. View the full house tour here.

Nautical Nod
Heritage brass boldly plays with polished nickel in this industrial-meets-coastal pendant. The confident structure of the piece is counterbalanced by its soft, domed, etched opal glass shade. Nautique Pendant by Hinkley, $575,


Vintage Vases
Ginger jars, which originated in the days of the Qin Dynasty, were initially used to store spices like ginger and salt, and are now used as beautiful display pieces and vases. Available in a wide array of colors, we love this bold yellow with vines, flowers, and colorful birds. Chinese Yellow Porcelain Vase, $581,

Piercing Portraits
Etsy is our go-to source for finding original vintage artwork. Choose something that speaks to you, in your specific color palette. Portraits are always sophisticated and intriguing. We dig this outsider art self-portrait from the 1970s. Vintage Outsider Art Portrait, $400,

Delicate Dragons
This iconic Chiang Mai Dragon fabric by Schumacher was originally inspired by an Art Deco print. In this chinoiserie motif, the powerful dragons are softened by an abundance of florals. Schumacher Chiang Mai Dragon Pillow in Smoke, 24” x 24”, $185,
