I’ve developed an affinity with brass – yes, that yellow alloy of copper and zinc. I find the metal rather unique as it can make a strong statement in even the simplest form. It can also lend to particularly modern aesthetics, or, equally, more traditional pieces. Brass evokes its own glamour without much exertion or force. Above, a 6″ brass knot via One Kings Lane, a fun objet for the home. Also loving this tiny “c table” from CB2.
I’ve always loved the sentiments that come with collecting – may it be matchbooks from special dinner parties or sterling silver pieces from generations past. “Collecting” often comes with a connotation that points to luxury or expense, but this seems irrelevant, in my opinion. You should collect whatever moves you, pieces that will forever make you reflect or tell a story for years to come. Which is why I’m finally going to start a charm bracelet…(Santa, baby).
Love this little morsel of a loo by one of my favorites, Tom Scheerer. The wallpaper and hat collection lured my eyes closer.
A quick weekend in New York City bore fruit to some superb eateries, to include Palma in the West Village. Traditional Italian cuisine was paired with a lively garden terrace to include blooms of roses, casablanca lilies, herbs and the like. Candles flickered while the room danced with soft conversation. A C&C Approval, rightfully earned. Follow them along on Instagram: @palmanyc
Dare I say, the final days of summer are at our door. Hurricane Hermine is working up the coast and people are firming up their weekend plans with keen eyes on the storm radar. It’s hard to believe we are here. Nonetheless, enjoy what is left of our beloved summer. Bon Weekend & Happy Labor Day!
