I’m a wee bit obsessed with Sara Gilbane’s bedroom, as shot by Zach Desart for what would have been Domino Magazine’s March 2009 issue. Isn’t it chic? The poppy print is Brunschwig & Fils "Lallarookh” (my new favorite fabric). Thank you, Style Court, for the photos!
Mary Stewart (whom we know as Mary, Queen of Scots) was born in Scotland's Linlithgow Palace.
Her father, King James V of Scotland, died 6 days later. As his only surviving
legitimate child, Mary was crowned at the age of nine months.

Greetings, loves! I hope you are not too upset for the lack of posts lately... life has been crazy! I’m currently sitting at a table (laptops out!) with my Matchbook Magazine partners, Ms. Katie Armour and Ms. Jane Lilly Warren. We’re busy at work preparing for our January issue-- I think you’re going to l-o-v-e. Our team just posted a darling behind-the-scenes album of our New York adventures on our facebook page. You must check it out! We’ll be updating the album over the course of the next few days.. I do hope you're a fan :) Til tomorrow! XO
I was very excited when I found this scan of a Christmas card from Jacqueline Onassis. Everything about it is lovely, from her red-bordered stationary and use red ink to the charming note written on the card (which reads: “So much love to Provy at Christmas.”). Wouldn’t you have loved to receive a Holiday card from Jackie?

The above images are from a lovely book called The New Tiffany Table Settings, published in 1981 by John Loring & Henry B. Platt. The book is composed of many different table arrangements by individuals such as Andy Warhol, Lee Radziwill and Julia Child. Contributers (who range from the Hollywood elite to European aristocrats) could style their table however they wished-- the only rule was that they had to make use of Tiffany’s china and dinnerware. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to add this book to my collection-- It makes for some serious inspiration for creative table arrangements. My next purchase will most certainly this book’s older sister, Tiffany Table Settings, published in 1960... It features tables styled by the likes of Sister Parish, Babe Paley and Billy Baldwin (be still my heart!). FYI-- if you're looking for inspiration that's a bit more modern, check out Caitlin Flemming's table as seen in San Francisco's 7X7 Magazine. It's gorgeous!(photos scanned by moi)
