watering can

“I’ll light the fire; you place the flowers in the vase that you bought today.”—GRAHAM NASH THIS SIMPLE QUOTIDIAN INSTRUCTION IS SO evocative. I see Joni Mitchell (Nash’s love interest at the time of his penning the song “Our House”) in their Laurel Canyon garden cutting a poetic mix of California blooms and arranging them in a pretty bohemian hand-thrown vase, as Graham, his rail-thin self, kneels down before the fireplace tossing crumpled-up pages of Rolling Stone magazine into the logs for kindling. At this moment in America and most likely everywhere else, we’re all still experiencing the joys and, for some, the monotony of home more than at any other time in history. This season in our culture has done nothing if not given us a renewed interest in and an…

utopia goods

STEP INSIDE OUR TEXTILE Jungle” beckons Australia-based Utopia Goods on its homepage.

Founders and designers Bruce Slorach and Sophie Tatlow ensure that each piece created uses the renowned textile craft of India. The latest collection, Precious, draws attention to Australian endangered plants, including the fragrant seeded wattle flower and the flowering matchstick banksia. usa.utopiagoods.com…

chic outposts

Beloved hotels are opening up new locations this year. Nantucket’s iconic White Elephant debuts a new spot in Palm Beach, bringing its legendary hospitality to a more Southern clime. With only 13 rooms and nine suites, each with a private outdoor space, the reinvented landmark property on Sunset Avenue feels intimate and estate-like. Their signature restaurant, Lola 41, will focus on local seafood and globally inspired cuisine. Opening in November; whiteelephantpalmbeach.com The Quirk Hotel in Richmond, a favorite of Flower editors, is expanding its rhapsody in pink with a Charlottesville location on Main Street, the first boutique art hotel in the beautiful college town. Like its sister, the hotel features a rooftop bar, among other dining options, and an art and gift gallery with rotating exhibits, trunk shows, and lectures. destinationhotels.com/quirk-charlottesville…

showroom news

Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, the principal designers of Carrier and Company Interiors, have teamed up with Lee Jofa for a collection of 36 fabrics and 11 wallcoverings inspired by their Hudson Valley home in Dutchess County, New York. The sophisticated selection includes florals, stripes, hand-block prints, and textural fabrics with cut velvet detailing and chenille-and-linen blends. “In the history, landscape, and charm of the Hudson Valley, one can see the influence of rolling fields, open sky, serpentine stone walls, and the silhouette of distant mountains in the colors and patterns of the collection,” say Jesse and Mara. The collection was born in the country but travels well to town and through time.” kravet.com…

the art of craftsmanship

We have long admired the handcrafted jewelry created in Italian ateliers. Fortunately, a group of companies is determined to keep the traditions alive. The family-owned jewelry firm Vendorafa, founded in 1951, along with other Italian designers have created the Mani Intelligenti (Smart Hands) Foundation, devoted to the preservation and development of hand crafted skills with a goal to find, teach, and place 1,000 students over the next three years. After training in gold-smithing, stone setting, and finishing, the graduates will be employed by Vendorafa or other members of the foundation. “We believe that the preservation of these arts comes only from exposure and education and the promise of opportunity,” says Daniela Lombardi, creative director of Vendorafa. vendorafa.net and maniintelligenti.it/en…

feeling rosy

The rose is celebrated for its scent, its medicinal qualities, and, of course, its beauty, so we want doses of it every day. We have fallen back in love with the classic chintzes from Rose Cummings, the New York City decorating doyenne who introduced the fabric and paved the way for its popularity with designers like the late Mario Buatta. There is comfort and cheer in each print, and with new ownership by Lauren Hudson of Wells Design in Houston, Texas, we can expect to see more of the archives go into production. Another lover of chintz, designer Richard Keith Langham welcomed the news: “I am thrilled this wonderful line will be preserved and celebrated. Carisbrook is one of my favorites—long live a bold chintz.” wellstextiles.com We also like to indulge…
