Sneak Peeks: Picks for the Home
October 4, 2012

Spring is usually considered the season of rebirth, but my own personal renaissance always takes place in fall and winter. I think it’s because I’ve always been fond of “back to school” fashions—from freshly pressed skirts and wool sweaters to new boots. Also, I’m mad for staying in. I love having people over, and naturally spend more time at home when the cold weather hits, so I like to freshen up my rooms, too. It’s no surprise I’m head-over-heels for some of the very cool (but oh, so warm and cozy) “Elements” featured in our next issue of New England Home. A few of my faves: Juliska‘s pewter stoneware (just how lovely is that go-with-anything metallic glaze?); embroidered guest towels by Matouk, perfect for a split-second re-do of the powder room; and some of the most inviting sheets I’ve seen in years: Pipal Indigo bedding by Pratt-educated, India-inspired, and enormously talented artist John Robshaw. They’re perfect for houseguests—or napping under the covers to keep the chill away.

To see more (including an inside look at Mill Goods, a fabulously refurbished textile mill that houses a “quirky assemblage” of things old and unusual mentioned by Cheryl Katz in her recent post), pick up the November/December issue of New England Home.
