editor’s letter

the holidays can be a sad time for people. What?! I remember thinking as a kid. That’s impossible! My mother explained how all the talk of joy and togetherness can remind folks of the loved ones who aren’t there to join in. Point taken, Mum. As I brainstormed phrases for this issue’s cover, the deafening emphasis on holiday joy hit home. Part of me wanted to nod to reality, with something like Pretty pick-me-ups for those feeling down. Or maybe Trees, menorahs, and respect for what you celebrate, too!

LINDEN BS12E53 FINE PAINTS OF EUROPE “This dining room beguiles you, like a hypnotic garden. Sinuous quince branches on the wallpaper set the scene, but it’s the vivid enameled green doors that inject the danger. Glistening like the scales of a viper, they introduce a sense of secretive, forbidden passion. I could imagine a seductress entertaining paramours here.” CATHERINE BROWN PATERSON HO1610 FINE PAINTS OF EUROPE “Playful without being childish, this vibrant wildflower yellow on the entry door of a San Francisco Victorian instantly boosted the curb appeal. Not only did it pop against the navyblue exterior, but it also reflected the homeowner’s sophisticated, contemporary style.

WHEN JENNIFER GLICKMAN meets with a client for the first time, she heads straight to the closet. “Let me see what’s going on in there! How someone dresses tells me so much about his or her design voice,” explains the Charlottesville, Virginia, designer, who was on the predental track until an architecture elective led her astray. Her love of borrowed-from-theboys silhouettes—Balenciaga and Balmain are two favorites— directly influences her interiors, where she deftly pairs handsome midcentury pieces with charming and pretty accessories and fabrics. “It’s a striking combination, because it feels dynamic and collected.” HER FAVORITE THINGS Items without prices are available through a designer.
