There’s something so beautifully theatrical about wall murals – one of the oldest forms of decorative wall treatments. I’ve been dragging my feet on settling on a repetitive wallpaper for our powder room but was recently inspired by de Gournay‘s exquisite hand painted reproductions of 18th century Chinoiserie landscapes. I love it so much, I’m going for it . . .
While in NY last week, I stumbled upon Club Monaco‘s 5th Avenue Flatiron location and was not only blown away by the impressive psychical transformation of the store (I know, it’s been awhile!), but also drawn to all the minimalist yet sumptuous clothing they’re offering this season. Cashmere, silk and leather in muted tones and tailored silhouettes are Club Monaco staples but this time, it all felt so fresh – with an added bit of edgy detail that is currently setting themselves apart from other retailers. And with the addition of really amazing capsule collections by emerging designers, Club Monaco is simply killin’ it. And their summer collection?! Take me to the beach already . . .
