Jaqui Lividini Writing Home Blog

When she’s not pumping up fashion brands for Lividini & Co., she is blogging on traditionalhome.com.

HELPFUL TIPS: When she’s not pumping up fashion brands, Jaqui Lividini of Lividini & Co. is rebuilding her 100-year-old classic Connecticut beach cottage on Long Island Sound, which was almost “put out to sea in Hurricane Irene,” Lividini said. “Irene took the porch out, the shed was gone and water came right through. There was a lot of damage.” The cottage sits on a point that juts out on the sound, and fortunately Sandy did not cause more damage. “It’s vulnerable but very well built,” Lividini said.


Given such firsthand knowledge, Lividini is blogging on traditionalhome.com, writing about her cottage, shoreline property issues, how to rebuild after a disaster and the surprises and delays that accompany old-house redos. New flood zoning, for example, has forced Lividini to come up with a brand-new set of plans,  like raising the house and putting in breakaway walls. “There’s so much going on with shoreline property because of all the recent devastating storms. The team that I hired, Design Development NYC, have been working on a lot of homes devastated by Sandy.”
