I was able to attend the Boston Common Magazine Summer Soiree held yesterday in Newport, RI at the Belle Mer on Goat Island. This photo shows the luminous fireplace guests face when they walk into the event venue. It is covered in shimmering tiles which reminded me of treasured shells I would find on the beach. The Belle Mer venue was designed with a white on white scheme which was elegantly executed with variations in textures and materials. Picture long flowing white sheers billowing in the wind, crisp white oyster shell paths, translucent louis chairs, and modern white wicker seating with white canvas cushions. The event was certainly relaxing with plenty of signature Grey Goose drinks and delicious passed appetizers.
