My friend Inez has a fantastic loft apartment (the kind that gets shot for Arch Digest) and she loves going to the flower market and doing beautiful, wild flower arrangements. So when she says she likes some fake flowers, all of a sudden they seem somewhat…cooler. They are great especially in the winter, and in an over-the-top […]


It’s not so often that I use my teapot…which is a little sad, as I’d like to be the person who does. (I drink a heck of a lot of tea, I just do single servings.) But I love the way they look, and I often see such pretty ones in flea markets and thrift […]
