Creating height and organic interest is a cinch with the right floral elements and vessel. Our family room needed a spring refresh this week so I headed to Le Jardin Francais here in town for an arrangement of preserved Koelreuteria. I’ve been eyeing (and buying!) containers that may be used for everything from centerpieces of permanent elements to fresh flowering bouquets. Whether you’re seeking elegant splendor or a lived-in look, make a natural mark in one of these vases sure to make the leading lady shine.
Decorating enthusiasts rejoice, late night adding-to-cart just became even more thrilling! The Mayfair Hall, founded by former fashion editor Melissa Rubini Smith, is the only place in the world where specialty interior design brands may offer their most creative work outside of the trade-only model.
What’s glossy, heavy and read all over? These newly released coffee table volumes from Rizzoli featuring inspiration from brilliant designers and tastemakers. One of my favorite hostess gifts to give is a gorgeous book that reflects her taste, ordered with two-day shipping from Prime and wrapped in a satin bow. To find a coffee table under the tree is thrilling too—a reason to linger in lounge wear a little longer, glass of wine in hand, savoring every page of your new tome somewhere between Christmas and New Years.
