Proverbs 17:22 ONE OF THE MORE POSITIVE ASPECTS of this season (corona time) has been watching—on social media, on television, in print, and among my friends and family—the resourceful and ingenious ways we’ve managed to keep up our spirits and help those in need at the same time. A brilliant and impactful strategy is the “Challenge.” Issued by designers, tastemakers, and artists, these challenges have charged followers (on Instagram primarily) with creating something beautiful—a collage, a delicious favorite dish, a flower arrangement, or even a tablescape to enjoy with family members or dream about for the future.

london’s calling

THIS YEAR, VENERABLE BRITISH hand-painted wallpaper firm de Gournay looked to the fashion scene for inspiration, joining up with London-based designer Erdem Moralioglu of the fashion label Erdem, which is known for exuberant feminine frocks and attention to detail. For de Gournay, Erdem and his team created a pattern with hydrangea, hollyhock, iris, and morning glory amidst a lattice of branches with birds darting through foliage. In turn, Erdem’s Spring/Summer 2020 collection includes dresses inspired by de Gournay’s works and rescaled for fashion, with florals strewn across backgrounds of white, navy, and black.
