Pastel Perfection at Pimlico

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?

Luxe Magazine - New York Edition

When Luxe Magazine called to ask if Diane would be willing to offer up some of her “local gems” for their Insider’s Guide, we jumped at the opportunity.  After all, living and working in Connecticut for over thirty years has allowed us to fill our address book with fun finds.   Here are some of our favorite spots if you happen to be in our neck of the woods!

Insider's Guide to Connecticut

“Go-to” Design Store – Pimlico in New Canaan for its delightful atmosphere where vintage meets modern and the traditional is tempered by the unexpected.

Divine Designs at Pimlico

“Must-see” Fall Event – Rooms with a View, founded by dear friend Albert Hadley, where twelve designers transform the Southport Congregational Church into stylish vignettes.  This year’s theme is “The Next Generation” showcasing new local talent – how fun!

“Shop-til-you-drop” Fashion – if you’re looking for the latest styles from Milly, Rebecca Taylor and DVF, Togs in Greenwich will satisfy your urge to splurge.

Terrific Togs

Meals “To Go” - you haven’t had take-out until you’ve tried Nicholas Roberts‘s Naked Portabella Club with roasted red pepper, arugula and goat cheese or the Crawfish Beignet Wrap with Cajun aiolo… so yummy, you’ll never order from a deli again.

Best Bites in Town

Hope your weekend is filled with fabulous finds like these!
