social set

Social media can feel like your best friend—or your worst enemy. As it goes with friends, most of the time we love everything about them, but once in a while they drive us crazy. Whether our hours on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest are a good or a bad thing (remember a few years back when the conversation was about how many hours we, especially children, spent in front of the TV?), I love the endless supply of inspiration social media offers. Instagram is my favorite. I find it motivating to see what other people are doing creatively. I follow cooks, chefs, decorators, makers, designers, gardeners, landscape designers, flower arrangers … the list goes on and on. I am personally acquainted with some of them; others I am familiar with only through…

OBSESSED WITH HUNTER-GATHERERS As stylists, they spend their days sourcing products to pretty up homes for photo shoots. Now they’re also shopkeepers, serving up their favorite things, plus tips and tricks, for customers who want to take a bit of their look home. THE TRADITIONALIST SARAH STORMS kcolette.com The visual threads running through the rooms she styles are lush color, a sense of happiness, and a hint of imperfection. “I’m drawn to traditional with a few surprises thrown in to hit the refresh button,” Sarah says. After years of styling for magazines, Sarah hit the shop floor at K Colette, where she serves as creative director. “Sourcing for photo shoots is ephemeral; it’s about capturing a moment. I love that these products I’m so passionate about go home with someone.” MAKE IT YOURS Adding a decorative finish…

erica explores micellar water

I can doze offfor maybe an hour with dirty skin, but I can’t turn in for the night without washing my face. For one, my complexion looks dull (and my pores seem enormous) if I don’t faithfully remove the daily layer of makeup, sunscreen, and grime. What about my fancy night serum? It deserves a clean surface. Plus, the ritual feels great: lather, massage, splash—what’s not to love? So when I first heard about micellar water—the suds-free, no-rinse French beauty secret gaining popularity stateside—I ignored it until the growing bottle collect ion on my desk demanded attention. Would this cleanser be as effective as a foam and feel as pampering? It turns out that micellar water does indeed wipe away the remains of the day—with some help from a cotton round.…

the secret to foundation

1/ OWN TWO SHADES The right shade should disappear into your skin, but it’s unrealistic to expect one foundation to always match. “You need a couple of shades you can switch between or mix when your skin tone changes,” says Luis Casco, a global beauty ambassador for Mary Kay . Skin tone typically darkens in the summer and lightens in the winter, so you may need to go up or down a shade to keep your look natural. Also, Luis points out that most us of have slightly different shades of skin on the body and face. Two hues allow some wiggle room to even out skin between face, neck, and chest. 2/ PICK YOUR FINISH Choose a formula that complements your skin type. A matte texture like NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick…

noble purples

Worn by Renaissance princes and the artist formerly and forever known as Prince, this aristocratic color looks best as found in nature—think aubergine and dusty lavender. Pair with chalky whites, feathery grays, or deep garnets for a scheme that can go bold or softly poetic. “YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH MORE IN A SMALL SPACE,” says designer David Kaihoi, who transformed the living room in his onebedroom New York City apartment into a cozy jewel box by painting almost every inch of it—walls, shutters, trim—matte purple. The eggplant velvet banquette subtly contrasts with the walls, and the oxblood throw is a vivid but not-too-bright accent. Dark green in the artwork, plants, and ethnic textiles on pillows balances and lightens the purple and ties it back to nature. PURPLE PAIRINGS Two hues from opposite…
