The authenticity of Ulla Johnson‘s global bohemian vibe truly shines through in the quality of her clothing, making her one of our favorite designers. Her clothing is certainly not easy to produce as it’s literally hand carried all over the world to be hand-finished by expert artisans – the yarn that make up her knits are spun to her liking in Peru and the intricate embroidery is done by hand in India. We’re also digging the more urban feel to her latest collection with relaxed, wide leg denim and loose fitting jumpers. Comfortable and chic. Honestly, Ulla.
A colorful Otomi pillow, a saddle leather chair, a vintage Peruvian ceremonial hat, an embroidered caftan and a bohemian bible . . . these are just a few of a free spirit’s soon to be favorite things.
It is freezing in California. I’m not complaining, especially after it was starting to feel like Indian summer had overstayed it’s welcome. But I can’t help but swoon over this breathtaking estate in Ibiza. The white washed walls, exposed wood beams, cement poured floors and thatched outdoor roofs have me dreaming of sandy beaches and balmy climates.
Walking down New Orleans‘ opulent and colorful Royal Street, you might just miss Krewe‘s minimalist and charming outpost – like I did. I only stumbled upon this little slice of eyewear oasis during my couple of hours in NOLA and the only thing that came to mind was: where have you been all this time?! Made with scratch resistant lenses, hand-carved Zyle acetate frames and distinctive 24K gold plated hardware, each pair of sunnies and optical glasses are made with the upmost attention to detail. And they look good on nearly any face shape! I’m a fan and officially a new member of the Krewe . . .
I’ve always loved to entertain. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s to accept help when you can – especially during the holidays. By not doing it all, you can have it all. My new motto? Perhaps. But honestly, nobody really has to know how quick and easy it was for you to order custom invites, menus, place cards and cocktail napkins via Tiny Prints. The variety of customizable designs, practical minimums and speedy turnaround make party planning a cinch. Plus, gold foil stamping and coordinating details, like envelope liners, turn the chic factor up tenfold. So despite this busy time of year, I was inspired to throw a weeknight holiday dinner party for my closest and dearest friends. The metallic rose gold and chestnut brown color scheme was inspired by the neutral color palette of the gorgeous paper suite. It’s all about trying new themes and having fun with your holiday tablescape! By the end of the night, when party shoes end up on the table and phone numbers are exchanged on place cards, I can officially deem the evening a success.
