Issue 08

… to the incredibly creative staff at Anthropologie for always coming up with catalogs that spark the imagination and tell a fashionable tale.  Issue 08 had us at “something about the city that night” so, of course, we read on: “the light through windows, the fall of rain, the quiet everywhere… made them see something in each other they had missed before.”  What a romantic way to showcase the new fall collection!

Molton Brown - Marvelous!

Molton Brown - Marvelous!

… to Stephanie (whose firm handles the PR for Molton Brown) for sending us a sample of the company’s new body hydrating gel.  Since we’re already huge fans of the vitalising vitamin AB+C bath & shower gel, we were excited see this addition to the collection (along with a delicious eau fraiche with notes of Italian mandarin, green fig and lemon tree – yum!)  And with too many days in the sun to count, our summer skin is loving this non-greasy gel, bursting with zesty anti-oxidant vitamins and white jojoba beads that lock in moisture and release an energizing citrus scent.

High Gloss - July/August 2011

… to Kelly Ottinger, self-described “product junkie”, Atlanta-based designer and author of the always colorful and inspirational Kelly Market, for including our Heavenly Hydrangeas in her article for the online magazine, High Gloss.  We first discovered Kelly’s blog when she mentioned one of our designs in a post and we’ve been hooked ever since!  Every one of her posts is full of divine design and beautiful bits and we know you’ll love her, too.

to the uber stylish Missoni family for not only creating easy to wear, fabulous fashion but the most fun and colorful outdoor collections, too!  With summer in full swing, the terrace is the place to be and when guests come over, they pull up a cushion or chair.  Now, with Missoni Home, everyone’s sitting pretty all summer long!

… to Christopher Farr Cloth for creating outdoor textiles so pretty that you’ll want them indoors.  This Carnival pattern was first seen on the cover of Vogue Living back in 2009, and then, of course, in Jeffrey Alan Marks‘ bedroom.

Using fabrics that will withstand a summer of wet suits and suntan lotion is a must in our house – even if we don’t have a pool in the back yard!

… to Lilly Pulitzer for having the ingenuity to turn a juice stand into a colorful, fun-filled fashion house!  Though more than fifty years old, this company’s still as fresh as ever and the iconic prints stand the test of time…  They also survive quite a few beachfront BBQ’s and sunset sailing parties, too!

Were You @ Blogfest?

… to Beth Greene, Vice President of Marketing, and her team at Kravet for organizing Blogfest 2011, three days of lunches, cocktails parties, tours and panel discussions celebrating the impact of bloggers on the design industry.  No doubt a huge amount of work went into organizing the events and no detail went overlooked.

From the fabulous food and swag bags to the chance to hear editors and designers speak about their craft, to (finally!) getting to meet in person the bloggers we’ve been following for ages…  We’d say Blogfest 2011 was a great success!

… to James Doyle for designing heavenly havens and gorgeous gardens.  His award-winning landscapes can be found all over the world, from a chateau in the Loire Valley to a family home in the Middle East.  We love his approach to design which takes into account the characteristics of the home into the context of its gardens, creating harmony in the environment.

Even the Birds Love James!

Miss M - One in a Million

Miss M - One in a Million

… to Bette Midler for having the vision and inspiration to beautify New York one community garden and park at a time.  Tired of the trash she saw along one of the city’s highways, Miss M stopped her car one day 15 years ago and began to pick up garbage – and thus, her non-profit, the New York Restoration Project, was born.  The fruits of her labor (along with countless neighborhood volunteers!) can be seen throughout the city – from the 600 flowering trees planted along the Hudson and Harlem Rivers (as part of the MillionTreesNYC project) to peaceful green havens in Bed-Stuy.

500,000 Trees and Counting!

Bette’s ultimate goal is to make the Big Apple a “cooler, greener, healthier, happier, more all-around beautiful place to call home”…  Can’t argue with that!

… to White Flower Farm in Litchfield, CT, for creating the most beautiful mixes of daffodils that even we, with our black thumbs, have been able to grow in our gardens.

Every fall, we plant a couple or fifty more bulbs and keep our fingers crossed, hoping that most will bloom come spring.  While we’re beginning to see green shoots, we’re praying that some of these darling daffodils will be ready for an Easter centerpiece!
