Christmas with a Farmhouse Touch

Country Charm in the City

In between meetings with our buyers a couple of weeks ago during Tabletop Week, we snuck off to 41 Madison to visit some of our favorite showrooms.  The prettiest by far was Villeroy & Boch where we fell in love with the Farmhouse Touch Blueflowers collection and friends, the company’s magazine dedicated to stylish living.

Villeroy & Boch - Farmhouse Touch Blueflowers

It’s no secret that we are drawn to blue and white (see our posts here and here) so we were excited to see the beautiful home of Rebecca Robertson and Marco Pasanella decked out for the holidays in the pages of the Autumn/Winter issue.

Delightful Dining

Marco and Rebecca Entertain

Beautiful Buffet

Both are designers (can’t you tell?) – she’s the Decorating Editor for Martha Stewart and he has authored books on design, teaches at Parsons and is a wine dealer.  No wonder their 18th century house overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge enchanted the editorial team at Villeroy & Boch!

A Sweet Treat for the Guests

Aren’t those large New York Botanical Garden prints framed in turquoise fabulous?  We’re dreaming of a blue and white Christmas…
