We’re Crushing on: Vogue’s White Winter Knits

Jan 26, 2016

  Since the cold temps have parked themselves in these parts for a while, we figure we might as well embrace the season with some chill-busting layers. And since piling on the cashmere, wool, and cotton knits in shades of white and ivory isn’t just for home decorating, we’re taking our fashion cues from this October 15 Vogue editorial, “Beyond the Pale,” shot by photographer David Sims (sadly, not available on their website), which feels even more timely as our thermometers make...

Saturday Six: Dreamy White Bedrooms

Jan 23, 2016

We’ve got—and are happy to embrace—a reputation as color-happy design mavens. But we also love white, which serves a variety of handy purposes in decorating. It’s an antidote to lots of color in summer and fall, so it’s perfect for switching up the look of an otherwise colorful room. White is also the ultimate contrast for popping a hint of hue, so you can make a big statement with one eye-catching color. It has a blank-slate feel that makes a room seem airy, easy, and restful (and...

Hearty and Healthy Veggie Chili

Jan 22, 2016

It’s officially that time of year when we comb through our recipe stash for the stick-to-your-ribs, one-pot meals. Our criteria: the food has to be warm (sorry, salads), comforting, and satisfying as a dinner, and easy to tote—and reheat—at the office for a quick lunch. This recipe for a veggie-packed, spicy, heart-healthy chili couldn’t be more ideal, which is why we’re putting it on frequent rotation until we can see the ground again.     What we love most about this...

We’re Crushing on: The Punctured-Canvas Art of Lucio Fontana

Jan 21, 2016

Sometimes the most sophisticated and thought-provoking art comes from the simplest concepts. This is exactly the case with Lucio Fontana (1899–1968), an Argentine-born, Italian-raised painter whose art—based on his theory of spatialism, that matter should be infiltrated by energy in order to generate dimensional, dynamic forms—has us wishing for a wall full of his white and ivory canvases.   Lucio was almost unbelievably prolific in the early to middle part of the twentieth century,...

How to Give Your Winter Whites a Pastel Pop

Jan 18, 2016

Now that winter is fully under way (yes, snow and all), we’re celebrating one of our all-time favorite ways to decorate the bedroom: layered whites, with lots of texture and dimension—and the barest hint of color, thanks to a few well-chosen pastels.   We love this approach for a few reasons:  first, you can’t go wrong with white bedding. Ever. It goes with everything, looks crisp and clean, and is restful on the eye—the perfect foundation for a sleep sanctuary. Second, adding in...
