I Heart Dovecote

It has always been a dream of mine to own a store one day, so through the years I've paid close attention to stores that inspire me. Although I've never had a chance to check it out in person, I've been "watching" Dovecote for years through their website and magazine articles, and have enjoyed seeing the many style changes that it has gone through. Store owner Sarah Kaplan started her career as a buyer for Neiman Marcus' European Sportswear and eventually did the buying for Barney's Private Label Collection. She now uses her well-trained eye to do the buying for her Westport, CT store by traveling to Paris and the south of France six times a year, finding the best antiques from Bagues to Napoleon III. (Click here to see the treasures she has recently brought back from France!) The store also carries hard-to-find lines ranging from Laduree candles to David Hicks fabrics and wallpapers! Fans of Dovecote include Martha Stewart, Paul Newman and Harry Connick Jr. to name a few. Check out some pics of this fab store :)
As expected, Sarah's own home is pretty spectacular as well! Here it is, featured in the January 2006 issue of Celebrity Living.
Finally, Sarah also participated in the 2006 Hamptons Cottages and Gardens idea house, designing the gorgeous room below!
