While the weather outside is still a loooooong way from summer, things are apparently heating up in Sag Harbor. The big gossip? That the site of the former restaurant Muse will soon be a new outpost for DKNY and her daughter’s Tutto Il Giorno restaurant. Apparently the designer with the garlic touch is close to inking a deal to buy the building next to the laundromat and Yummilicious for a little under $6 million bucks. The space which also has a small retail space to the side will also be the future home of the retail store Urban Zen which according to their own facebook page features, “A philosophy of living inspired by Donna Karan. “I have spent decades dressing people. Now I want to address them.” I swear it says that! You can’t make this stuff up! But what ever you think, the food at Tutto rocks! Good news for the Harbor.
Switching now to really annoying quotes from rich people. Everyone’s least favorite celebrity, Goop will be moving into the site currently occupied by Urban Zen on Bay St. My head already hurts form this news. I really hope it’s just gossip but I do believe my sources. Yes, Gwyneth Paltrow the woman who claims she learned about discrimination from donning a fat suit in Shallow Hal is coming to Sag Harbor. OH! She also said with a straight face “being on set is more difficult than being an ordinary working mom.” Yes, that Oscar winning cultural guru is bringing her absurdly priced retail items to the Hamptons again (Amagansett dodged the bullet ). Oh joy! I don’t know what to say. In one year we lose Conca d’Oro and instead get the woman responsible for these pearls of wisdom. Insert crying, eye-rolling, sick, laughing emoji here!
Well enough about celebrity real estate and let’s talk about real real estate. Like what to do to help you get that house sold! Recently I brought my friend Susan Beard who is a local designer and stager to help me with this listing here. It was no easy task but she was up to the challenge and helped the owners and me bring this East Hampton home from shab to fab (insert eye roll emoji here). Seriously though, she did a great job.
