A Sunday in…
Sullivan County, New York

We headed upstate to the country home of Yolanda Edwards, creative director of Condé Nast Traveler, to see how she and her 12-year-old daughter, Clara, spend their downtime. Luckily Yolanda’s husband, photographer Matt Hranek, was on hand to document their weekend adventures.

If these walls could talk: The Haida prints above the sofa are from a natural history museum in Vancouver, BC.
Yolanda wears the Saint James® for J.Crew slouchy T-shirt and lookout high-rise crop jean in mariner wash. Clara wears the girls’ cashmere pocket sweater and cozy everyday leggings in charcoal stripe.

Clara and Yolanda wear the marled camp socks.


“Our house was built by an Austrian architect, Oskar Leo Kaufmann, who specialized in prefab design. It was sent to the U.S. in four containers, and five Austrian guys had the exterior set up in less than a week.”

Bottom right: lodge moccasins.

“Travel journals are great souvenirs, and they also work as a memory aid when friends ask you three years later where to eat in Palermo. I collect everything from leaves and flowers to restaurant coasters.”
Yolanda

“My weekend uniform in the winter is jeans, a loose shirt or sweater and Quoddy® boots.”
Yolanda
“My dad gave me this Barbour® jacket, and I like it…although I would prefer one that is brand-new! He tells me how lucky I am to have this vintage one.” —Clara

“Black leggings are my favorite—they go with everything. I also love stripes and polka dots!”
Clara
Prune, a Jack Russell terrier, just moved here from France and has her own Instagram account, @prunelachienne.

“Our two dogs are Prune and Charlie. Prune is like a teddy bear—she likes to curl up in your lap and sleep! Charlie is really fun to run around with. He’s like my brother.”
Clara

“I like to be comfortable. At my job we’re often working on the floor, so I don’t like to be in supershort anything or pants that have no movement. I wear pretty much the same look every day—usually black, with a little hit of color from maybe a shoe, and always a gold bracelet or two.”

YOLANDA’S FAVORITE LOCAL HAUNTS

EAT

The Heron

40 Main St., Narrowsburg
“If we want to go out for lunch and a little field trip, we’ll drive to Narrowsburg and go to the Heron, which is very solid.”

The Alpine Wurst & Meat House

1106 Texas Palmyra Hwy., Honesdale, PA
“This old-school German deli and restaurant is fantastic. It’s a little further afield, just across the Delaware River and into Pennsylvania.”

EAT AND SHOP

Blooming Hill Farm

1251 New York 208, Blooming Grove
“My favorite place to stop on the drive up. It’s so lovely. They have the best produce, and they make delicious food as well: breakfast pizzas, soups and good coffee.”

Callicoon Wine Merchant

25 Lower Main St., Callicoon
“A great cheese and wine shop. Robin, the owner, will make a nice cheese and charcuterie plate for you at the counter and pair it with a lovely glass of wine.”

SHOP

Nest

15 Main St., Narrowsburg
“Our favorite little store to visit after lunch at the Heron. It’s run by a friend I used to work with at W Magazine. She has everything from vintage outerwear to a great edit of kitchen accessories to her favorite things from her native Brazil.”
