Hallelujah! Mara Hoffman has launched her first ever home collection with Anthropologie and it’s a match made in heaven, wouldn’t you agree? The rug, the chair, the candle . . . I could go on and on – it’s all so good. While some of the items are available now, the entire collection will go on sale on June 2nd. Get those credit cards ready.
I’m all about a pair of cropped, wide legged culottes – especially when worn with a pair of sexy heels or boyish loafers. My current favorites are Whistle‘s lightweight silk culottes and Tibi‘s heavier pleated version. Both are dressy yet relaxed. Flattering without trying so hard. So what say you?
After touring Serena & Lily‘s new design shop in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I was instantly motivated to redesign my son Quincy’s room. There had been a bare corner of his nursery that had challenged me to do something with it. The shop’s incredible art wall was the push I needed to let go of my design inhibitions and to just have fun. In addition to Q’s new artsy corner and with the help of Serena & Lily’s amazing design advisors, I covered a wall in a subtly patterned and slightly textured wallpaper, laid out a wonderfully soft and extra large macramé rug, added a chic bookshelf for all of his toys and books, and accessorized with delightfully printed sheets, throws and pillows. The room now radiates personality, color and fun – it’s just perfect for our little bundle of joy. And as my husband jokes, Quincy’s got the best room in our new house so far. Of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
San Francisco based artist Lindsay Stripling reinterprets old photographs in her watercolors. In her latest series, she has filled in her signature blank faces with landscapes from vintage National Geographic photographs of National Parks. There is something so sadly solemn but beautiful about each of these portraits and I can’t help but crave more of her work.
