c/o The Maidstone is now open and it’s immensely exciting… We just pulled off a super successful and fun opening weekend and if you happened to be one of the lucky ones to come play I want to thank you as you made me so happy. Each and every one of you. From our fabulous 95 year old neighbor who’s seen the inn change various times over her 65 years here in the Hamptons, to the previous owner who came to have a look at what had happened behind the closed doors over the past months, to the young hipsters who came from the city to see what all the buzz was about and of course, the spiritual healers, acupuncturists, yogis or influx of Swedes that naturally came to toast a fellow Swede making a mark in the East End. Somebody asked me if the design was typically Scandinavian and as you can see from the pictures, the design is a bit bolder than your average Scandinavian household but all the details stem from different parts of Sweden, Denmark and Norway, and if you like them, we’ll be able to tell you where to get them. That’s part of the brand as we want to spread the word of what we’ve found over the years. Have a peak at the pictures. We wanted to create something that would stand out in a crowd. Let me know what you think, if we succeeded, if you want to have your wedding here, do yoga by the big Buddah in the garden or just sip some champagne in the garden. Chances are you’ll see me there which I’m already looking forward to. Being a part of the Hamptons is a blessing. Thank you for being a part of this exciting journey for my hotels, my dogs and myself.
