These two. My heart is an open book so everybody knows how much I love them. So it’s particularly perfect when a top editor like @hadleykeller of @archdigest captures their essence in a story and illustrates it with heartfelt words and images from top designers for whom I also have the utmost respect and affection. Michael Tavano and Lloyd Marks and their two brands, Michael Tavano Design and Marks and Tavano Workroom have been my clients since I started my business nine years ago. And they were my dear friends first. And now they are profiled in A.D. Deservedly so. On days like this I feel like the luckiest person to work in this industry with such outstanding people. Thanks @amytastley for celebrating #handcraft, and honoring excellence in design. Thanks Kevin Isbell, Lydia Marks, Lisa Frantz and Jamie Drake, and shout out to colleague @andrewjosephpr for your role in this one. ❤️ to all.

Can’t decide who we enjoyed working with more: our client, Crypton Home Fabric, media partner, Architectural Digest, or #designerwelove Marie Flanigan Interiors! Man this job rocks when the talent you get to work with is this good.

Do you like the arrangements for our upcoming Miami event? Event planning and design by remote is easier with great partners like @billhansenluxurycatering and @inesnaftalistudio. Sadly, Miami friends (Calypso Rachie, Jay and Patrick G) - I was hoping for some personal time before or after the conference but it is not possible. Flying in hours before setup and flying out moments after strike. 😢😥😥 Bummer.

Beautiful #nyc. We are not afraid of cowards, we got this. Right now there are hundreds of kids on my block trick-or-treating with their parents just as usual!Our mayor and governor were so eloquent, compassionate and strong of spirit in their response to this attack. ❤️We’re amazingly lucky to have the @nypd looking after us. I’ve run and walked that path literally hundreds of times just like thousands of my fellow west-siders. You’ll see tomorrow people will be out there again, seizing the day, standing up in honor of the injured and grieving, in the clear view of the Freedom Tower, in one of the most prepared and protected cities on the planet. #nyc #iloveny #westsiderules #happyhalloween 📷: @nycgo

A Tuesday tip from our client @darrinvarden design: add in something organic to soften and warm up a sleek, contemporary design. He had these custom agate and gold cabinet pulls made especially for the gorgeous lacquered custom millwork he designed for this room. This play on scale also makes something otherwise utilitarian into a focal point. 📷 Marco Ricca

It’s been a challenging week in America. We’re gonna grab a coffee and maybe light a candle at the desk on a rainy Friday in NYC and make the best of the little things while getting our hustle on. Also would like to take a page from the book of @patrickjhamiltondesigns and extend gratitude to some folks who helped make this week better.

One of our favorite words around here is resilience. We can see the tribute in light from our south-facing office window, and while not nearly as dramatic as this view looking north by photojournalist @GaryHershorn, each time I see the columns of light they evoke deep emotion. I feel gratutude for having my life centered in this place of grace and fortitude, and having work that even sometimes takes me to the new 1 World Trade, a living monument to American resilience. Like those columns of light, you can feel that it stands for something. I feel empathy for the families of those lost that sundrenched morning, thinking that cruel irony must have felt as fresh this perfect fall day as it did then. And I feel hope for the survivors, those who made it out of those buildings whose lot may be the toughest of all even though everyone inevitably tells them how lucky they are. Time is a great healer and I pray for their healing and wish them peacefulness. I'm moved by these lights, and by the incredible survivor tree, and the saplings from that tree that NYC gives to survivors in other places where the unthinkable happens, to both mark their losses and stand for the flourishing future they will live into. #homeofthebrave #nyc #love #freedomandjusticeforall

Hero worship is ok when your hero is this guy. Graydon Carter is an editor with a real vision. He's the kind of editor that creates magazines that delight people, that make people ask questions. We ❤️his @vanityfair and before that we totally geeked out over the fabulous, late, lamented Spy magazine. He finds genius writers and is meticulous and disciplined about art direction - so much so that you can find yourself loving the magazine more than you think you should. After 25 years at the helm Mr. Carter has announced that he will step down in December. We can't wait to see what's next, and meanwhile thanks for so many compelling issues. #grexit

Once upon a time this incredible career offered up the chance to do luxury travel and culinary brand strategies. This meant sometimes working for rather long stretches literally in paradise. This was a particular favorite home away from home, beautiful La Samanna on St. Martin. Islands in the Caribbean often come with a well known and glaring irony. While rich in the extraordinary natural beauty that makes them tourist destinations, obviously many of these islands are places of economic extremes where many people face severe daily challenges. On many islands, outside of the tourist areas, the kind of basic everyday resources and infrastructure we take for granted are lacking. Nonetheless they're home to some of the most generous and genuinely happy people on the planet. As #Irma bears down on the Caribbean we're thinking of everyone there and hoping for the best. May God's love be with you. Ours is.

"Eat thoughtfully, live joyfully." That's the manifesto of @food52 - the brand that gets our #wootoftheweek. And not just because they know the #truth that the best #bacon method is in the oven on a sheet tray at 400° for 15 minutes. (It really is.) Of course, we've been fans of Amanda and Merrill for decades, long before their tour de force digital reincarnation as founders of Food52. What started as a monster community recipe exchange has evolved into one of the most well-edited and thoughtful home design brands we know. We rarely style shoot without at least one or two things from Food 52. We have a modern turned wood and ceramic cake stand in our kit that is so graceful, while it has never held a cake we've used it as a buildup in a museum wall niche, an event display and a photo shoot. So far. The products are awesome, the site and their social platforms are delightful and engaging, and they stand for something. In everything they do they connect food, home, family and sustainability. They have millions of fans, because they #putpeoplefirst.

09/02/2017

Some people believe that objects take on part of the soul of those who use them. So, for example, when you inherit the family silver, the souls of your ancestors partially inhabit it. Call me woo-woo (you won't be the first) but I'm a believer. Whether you are or not, one thing's for sure, objects have stories. That scalloped spoon on the right was the frequent bearer of the shimmering, deep amethyst jelly that my Dad made every year at this time, in the waning days of summer, from the scores of wild elderberries that grew by our pond. The beveled and pierced one on the left served up smoky, salty almonds at my parents' 1960s cocktail parties. That granddaddy fork in the center is the asparagus fork, first called upon only in the early springtime, it got more and more use once aparagus became avaialble as a year-round treat, and even more as we in America learned it could be served many ways, including the MacLatchie fave: chilled and doused in champagne vinaigrette at brunch, preferably alongside Mom's spectacular cheese souffle (email me for the recipe, also a family heirloom). Those silver plates graced my grandmother's table, my aunt's, my Mom's and now are headed for mine. After me, my niece @rmr214 and nephew @maclatchie and their daughters will love them, and, I believe, will feel the souls and taste the love of all of us who gathered and served and prayed and laughed and told stories over bountifully laden family tables.

Later this year, we'll be telling other people's #tabletop stories. We can't wait. Stay tuned.
