Pastel Perfection at Pimlico

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Making an Entrance

It goes without saying that one of our very favorite places to shop for unique home decor and beautiful gifts is Pimlico in New Canaan.  No trip to town is complete without popping in and seeing what owners, Melissa and Jill, have added to their elegantly curated vignettes – whether it’s a bauble from White Moth Jewelry, the latest work of local photographer Barbara Erdmann or a hand-crafted bowl by Lawrence McRae.

Baubles and Trees

While Pimlico is always a feast for the eyes, the store is magical this time of year.  From the moment you step through the entrance decked out with white birch logs and mixed garlands, you’re transported into a world of pastel prettiness and glitter.

Frosted Trees and Snowmen

Needless to say, we’re so excited to be part of Pimlico’s festive mood this year.  When Melissa, who is responsible for the holiday decor, came to us to source faux garlands and create custom boughs for the store, we were more than happy to help.  And the result speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

With three and a half weeks to go and nothing crossed off our “to-do” lists, we thought we’d hire some professionals to help us with the Christmas shopping.

Dear Santa…

We’re wondering if the post office would deliver a letter to the North Pole by Express Mail… since we’re so late in getting this one written.   But perhaps he reads blogs?  If so, here are a few things we’d love to have under the tree…
