Beach House Decor And The Newport International Polo Series XIX

The Newport Polo Series is a one of Newport's oldest traditions and most popular summer attractions here at this seaside resort. In 1876 James Gordon Bennet, hosted a special dinner party for a carefully selected guest list of a dozen gentlemen who were of the sporting set. Bennet had previewed the new game of polo, on a recent trip to England. The game caught the imagination of the buccaneering class of the Gilded Age. The sport set, embraced the sport and made it part of their annual summer retreat in Newport. Playing fields were established near their summer beach homes on Bellevue Aveunue and the Westchester Cup became the fist polo club of the US. Making Newport the birthplace of polo in America. Today over 23 nations from all six contents have competed in the Polo Series at Glen Farms in Portsmouth.

When summering in Newport, an invitation for cocktails before Polo is a Newport tradition. More often then not in Newport, the beach home will be behind Iron Gates. Here views of the sea shore from one's beach house porch is the Summer Resorts luxury and beauty, that International guests love to take in. As the International sport set mingles, talks polo, and Newport's campaign to host the next America's Cup the beach house's decor must be simple and not be competing against the sea's spectacular beauty. A pair of wicker sofas from Restoration Hardware suits this classic tradition and conversation. Bottles of Veuve Clicquot mixed with coral reef pillows add to the beach house decor conversation and excitement of the social highlight of the polo season the International Polo Charity Ball, on Friday, August 6th. So come on everybody, take a surfing safari Summer trip to Newport! On the following day USA plays Australia, concluded by an authentic New England Lobster bake.
