last week i did a post on c.z. guest. the images and inspiration came from the book C.Z. Guest : American Style Icon, by susanna salk. who doesn’t love c.z.’s style, how she dressed, how she lived, and where she lived.

that brings us to templeton, c.z.’s famed estate on long island. this all-american house has become as much of an icon as c.z. herself. the green hallway with animal print carpet, the green marble library (probably a paint technique), the oxblood lacquered dining room- all i can say is chic!

what i love about all these images of templeton is that they really showcase c.z.’s passions- riding, gardening, entertaining and of course, her love of animals.

it’s starting to feel like fall, grab your riding boots and riding jackets, let’s go on a horse ride to c.z.’s temple- templeton! enjoy!
