watering can

“Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.”—WILLIAM COWPER I VIVIDLY REMEMBER many of my mother’s aphorisms. Not only was she a wordsmith, but she was also really smart. Whenever we discussed differences of opinion, style, looks, likes, etc.—especially if I was having difficulty with these differences—she would calmly state, as if pronouncing some profound philosophical revelation from an oracle on high, “That’s why they make chocolate and vanilla.” But it was always assumed that one must pick one or the other. It never occurred to me then that you could have both, a fudge royal of sorts, but of course you can. Today, the fudge royal of style is eclecticism, or as we refer to it informally in the culture, “the mix.” Eclecticism, done right, is…

kendall wilkinson

INTERIOR DESIGNER Kendall Wilkinson and her team are quite versed in the masterful mix. Their rooms are layered and dynamic, with deft pairings of older gems and modern pieces and a keen sense of color. This color prowess is reflected in the designer’s newest collection for Fabricut. Each color group is inspired by her global travels—the lights of Paris, the colorful motifs of Mexico, and the patterns and textures of nature. Coastline reveals rich blues and soft aquas, while Cityscape presents a neutral palette. Jardiniére, our favorite, calls to mind a garden of wildflowers with a rich mix of berry hues and dark greens. WHAT WE’VE GOT OUR EYES ON “This line reflects me in many ways, but the colors I chose are really ones that I gravitate towards in all aspects…

BORN IN 1887, the only child of C. W. Post, the creator of Post cereals and the company that would become General Foods, Marjorie Merriweather Post lived a life of American royalty. Heiress, businesswoman, philanthropist, and hostess, Post owned many homes over the course of her life, including Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, as well as places in Long Island and the Adirondacks. In 1955, at the conclusion of her third marriage, Post—famously independent—left the Washington, D.C., home she had shared with her husband, and purchased Hillwood, a 25-acre estate nestled against Rock Creek Park a few miles north of the National Mall. She was 68 years old. “Marjorie Post had a strong sense of history and her place in history.”—KATE MARKERT, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF HILLWOOD According to Kate Markert, executive director…
