For the last three weeks, I have been plagued with a constant series of headaches ranging from dull and irritating to full-on migraine. If anyone has any advice, I would be greatly appreciative! Fortunately, I have found great joy during this time binge-watching the acclaimed video series, “At Home With” via the Quintessence YouTube channel. I recently discovered YouTube TV, so now I can snuggle into bed to watch and not have to sit in front of the computer!
The Quintessence design video series was created by author Susanna Salk and Stacey Bewkes, founder of the celebrated Quintessence blog. Susanna, the host, has published many design books including A Privileged Life, Be Your Own Decorator, Room for Children, Dream Rooms for Children, The Power of Pattern, Decorate Fearlessly, Weekend Retreats, Dogs and Their Designers, and At Home in the English Country Side: Designers and Their Dogs. Stacey, a former art director, is the co-creator, producer, and editor. Her fabulous blog has become a trusted source for well-researched, original content in the online world.
With now over 100 episodes, logging over one million monthly views, Susanna and Stacey visit the homes and gardens of top designers and style makers around the globe… today I am sharing a few of my favorites!

Quintessence has a series of six video videos with designer Timothy Corrigan, and the tours of his French chateaus are simply breathtaking! It is truly like stepping inside a magical fairytale!
