Vintage dessert plates, stationery, eyeliner, gift wrap, heels... there are a dozen categories in which I overindulge, but none as fervently as party supplies. I find them irresistible! I’ve brought home pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey games from Argentina and goodie bags from Japan. Polkadot napkins, extra-tall cake candles, paper crowns, feliz cumpleaños banners, Mylar streamers, confetti—I’ll take an hour in a novelty store over two at a spa any day! The whole mess of it is stored in an oversize bin under my bed, so on a moment’s notice I’m prepared to attend or throw a child’s birthday party, host a Champagne brunch, or mail a package to a friend on a milestone occasion.

With the vintage leather chair, woolly pillow, and bespoke mirror, it’s soothing and snug, as if you’re having a latenight Cognac at a favorite watering hole.” RENA CHERNY DKC-42 DONALD KAUFMAN COLOR “At first glance, this creamy butter yellow—the exact shade of a Studebaker my family had when I was growing up—appears quite bright. But there’s a depth beyond that initial impression. It has a hushed, meditative side to it, like an extroverted introvert.
