Dear readers, I hope you are all staying well and sane during this unprecedented time. With such heavy news coming from the COVID-19 front lines, the dictate to shelter responsibly in place seems a small ask to comply with for our communities and country. My heart goes out to all small business owners weathering this wild storm and I want to be championing them as much as possible. One such purveyor being The Avenue by Lyndsey Zorich, a very chic destination for pieces you aren’t going to see anywhere else. Curated finds for your closet and tablescapes can be shopped on their website and, soon, at their brand new brick and mortar location in Houston.
There’s nothing that enchants quite like an old English estate. For many of us, the spell was first cast while reading classic novels such as Wuthering Heights and Brideshead Revisited. With facades that were dignified and haunting and interiors layered over time by generations of occupants, these homes took on a life of their own. This week, Christie’s London draws open the curtains of Chieveley House, a divine example of such a home. On Thursday, March 19th, one can bid on lots from this very estate during their Private Collections auction which features pieces from five other remarkable residences as well.
