from our editor

back in 1941, when House Beautiful declared plaid taffeta all the rage, boom—there it was, on the shelves at B. Altman & Co. and in the windows at Lord & Taylor. Like magic, we were always right! Those were the days. Then, as today, our editors attended the big trade shows, where the major retailers told us then and there exactly which products the buyers had pounced on. Six months later, those items hit the stores—but not before we magazine editors could publish our spot-on “predictions” for the season. It’s not quite as simple anymore. “Post-trend” is how Jeff Lincoln, this month’s cover designer, describes today’s climate, but I’d say it’s poly-trend. With a zillion clickable products to buy and a deluge of diverse ideas for the taking, it’s harder…

NANCY’S BLUSHES 278 FARROW & BALL “For the closet of an über-fashionable client, I threw a curveball with this retro revival pink. It’s fresh but it has a vintage quality, reminiscent of the bubble gum I loved as a kid. When I commit to vibrant I take it to the max, so I used it on everything from the trim to the shoe shelves. The best part: It’s super-flattering to her complexion—and to almost anyone else’s!” ANDREW HOWARD GOLDFINCH SW 6905 SHERWIN-WILLIAMS “Exotic, uplifting colors that inspire joy are hot right now, a reaction to all the neutrals prevalent everywhere. This is bright and vivid, like sunshine for your home. I first saw it in Jaipur, India, when I spotted a man at a festival wearing a marigold necklace. The merriment and liveliness…

1 | TREAT YOUR FINGERTIPS It’s high time to invest in new flatware. In this age of incessant tapping and swiping, there’s nothing more luxurious than actually feeling. To awaken digits dulled by digital devices, introduce a tantalizing texture to something you handle several times a day—be it a doorknob, a coffee mug, or a dinner fork—then set your phone down and enjoy. 2 | MOODY BLOOMS Coming soon to your bouquet: beautifully gloomy flowers. Inky blossoms in deep purple or burgundy verging on black are the new fave of next-wave floral designers.

But a few stems added to whisper pinks or soft peaches simply underscore the delicate nature of pale petals. Call it the art of…

bright young thing

“WHY BE AFRAID?” asks Erick Espinoza. “The outcome is infinitely more interesting when you take a leap.” The 26-year-old Miami native, who often looks to the funky spaces produced by the Memphis Group for inspiration, knows a thing or two about fearless decorating, given his meteoric rise up the ranks at Anthony Baratta, where he interned at 19 while studying at the New York School of Interior Design. In 2014, he was named creative director. Espinoza’s joyful personality, singular talent, and similarity to Bill Diamond did not go unnoticed by Baratta: “He reminds me of my late partner— both are painters and have a brilliant passion for color.” HIS FAVORITE THINGS 1. MILLES PATTES FLOOR LAMP BY JEAN ROYÈRE “It’s six feet tall—it has such great scale.” 2. PROTRACTOR SERIES BY FRANK STELLA…
