Last Fall when I visited Portland, Oregon for my sister’s wedding, I came across the hippest, cutest modern home decor store, Woonwinkel. Even though we were in the midst of our massive renovation, I wanted to buy everything in the store for the new house. I couldn’t justify buying a lot of the items (where to store them for 8 months?) but I couldn’t pass up this necklace holder for my daughter’s room. I lugged it around for several months, and finally got around to hanging it up. And I couldn’t be any happier!
So fun and whimsical.
Maisonette, founded by Sylvana Ward Durrett and Luisana Mendoza Roccia, two (beautiful) alums from Vogue, is the new (online) hot destination to buy anything KID. Everything on their site is perfectly curated and tasteful… it makes you want Sylvana and Luisana to be your new BFFs. They are certainly smart, creative, fashionable, gorgeous tastemakers, and their website offers the best of the best of children’s brands — think Net-a-porter for kids. I had the opportunity to interview them, so take a look.
Sylvana and Luisana, and their kids.
How did you come up with the idea for an e-commerce kids site? What was the inspiration?
As mentioned Friday, I have a newfound love for Zara Home. When in Paris a couple of weeks ago, I bought a simple candle that made me happy. Most candles these days seem to cost 40 dollars plus, so when I found this pretty (and beautiful smelling) candle for 17 euros, I knew I had to buy it.
Pink and green box. Tuberose smell — sweet and perfect. (Minorly crushed in my carry-on… apologies)
I am (majorly) blushing…..I’m so excited to share with you the latest feature by my new friends at The Glitter Guide! The lifestyle website dedicated to helping its readers “shine bright” put together a really fun article featuring our home. I LOVE the piece and am so flattered they featured the pictures and details of my interview with them. Enjoy the below pics then click through to the article.. Thanks Glitter Guide!
I am awkward. And it kind of looks like I am wearing 80’s arm warmers (as cool as they are, I am not).
I LOVE this pic!
