Things We Love: Spring Edition

If we could use one word to describe this month, it would be “unpredictable”. March brings the promise of blooming flowers, blue skies, and friendlier temperatures. Yet the reality is usually grey days, blustery winds, and the odd snow shower—especially here in New York City. However, we’re choosing to look to the bright side, focusing on the beautiful sights that spring can offer. From a gorgeous exhibition that we could look at for days on end to the perfect rosy blush, here are just a few things we’re excited for this month:

The Orchid Show at The New York Botanical Garden

Now in its 15th year, the Orchid Show at The New York Botanical Garden has been one of the most anticipated garden events of the year. 2017’s exhibition is its most lavish one yet. “The Orchid Show: Thailand” puts the spotlight on the wealth of orchids and rich cultural history of Thailand, with spectacular settings that transport you to the lush tropical gardens of the region.

 

A Lovely Lantern

The Pagoda-Top Tole Lantern by Two Worlds Arts has a crisp shape that works equally well in both interior and exterior settings. The rich blue hue adds a whimsical quality that doesn’t detract from the lantern’s classic feel.

 

Glossier’s Cloud Paint

Glossier is the “it” brand in the beauty realm right now, and their Cloud Paint blush might turn you into a convert. Inspired by the shapes of a New York City sunset, the pillowy gel-cream blush is seamless, sheer, and buildable.

 

A Colorful Chair

Whether your style goes traditional or eclectic, the Samuel Wingback Chair by KB Bespoke is the ideal accent piece for your seating area. Designed by Kristen Buckingham, this custom design puts a subtle twist on the classic wingback design.

 

SingleThread Farms

Part inn, part restaurant, and part farm, this California destination is a must-visit for foodies — or anyone else who wants to indulge in such delights as an 11-course tasting menu. Combining eco with luxe, this is an experience you won’t forget.

 

Vibrant Vases

Add an element of exotic style to your décor with the Saffron Yellow Vases With Metal Mounts from Asian Decorative Arts. Whether displayed solo or in a pair, you’ll enjoy contemplating the exquisite details of this distinctive set.

 

Fanciful Key Chains

Maja Lithander Smith has long traveled the globe in search of one-of-a-kind treasures, and tries to share with others a bit of the beauty she finds. These luxe key chains are the perfect example of her global perspective: Made in Morocco, each richly hued tassel is crafted from a soft suede leather.

 

A Glamorous Read

Swans: Legends of the Jet Society is a stunning volume that pays tribute to the jet set of decades past…along with their couture gowns, glittering jewels, and debonair men.
