Mieke ten Have is a girl to watch — we first discovered her ourselves when we came across her gorgeous yet understated garden wedding in Maine. Since the wedding Mieke has kept busy: she’s not only an editor at large at ELLE DECOR, but she’s also a design writer, consultant, and co-founder of Panier Home. Oh, and did I mention she has a daughter on the way? Mieke and her husband, Tyler Graham (of Kings Highway Cider), now split their time between Manhattan and their new home in upstate New York. The couple are among the first wave of young NYC creatives to stake claim in Millerton, a charming historic town experiencing a creative renaissance of sorts (the New York Times has already named it Williamsburg on the Hudson). We caught up with this very busy mom-to-be for a quiet backyard dinner, and now we’re dreaming about life in Millerton, too.
