Issue #6

Cabana x Schumacher

Cabana Magazine

For the sixth issue, Cabana magazine collaborated with famed fabric house Schumacher. Each copy features a stunning Schumacher fabric on the cover and there are nine versions to choose from. I will cherish the one they sent me, above.

Most of the stories in this issue are part of a Russian portfolio, however, my favorite spread is of Tillypronie, a remote country estate in the Aberdeenshire Hills of Scotland—I love that the house looks lived-in.

The Cabana x Schumacher collaboration issue will be available at 1stdibs, and on U.S. newsstands November 12.

‘The Plot Thickens’

I mentioned last week that I’m looking forward to an upcoming evening with my friend interior designer Katie Ridder and her husband architect Peter Pennoyer where they will talk about their new book, “A House in the Country”.  This weekend’s WSJ profiled the the couple’s garden at their new Millbrook, NY home.

Gracious Living

I went to a book signing last evening for Bunny Williams’ and Mark D. Sikes’ new books. And I’m looking forward to an upcoming lecture by Katie Ridder and Peter Pennoyer on their new book. A fabric nut, I’ve just ordered A.S. Byatt’s book, too. I have a mighty stack to keep me busy.

Beautiful, A House in the Country, Peacock & Vine, A House by the Sea.

‘Beautiful’

My friend and kic profile Mark D. Sikes has a gorgeous new book, ‘Beautiful’, out today. It’s no surprise that the chapter “bringing the outside in” is my favorite. Congratulations, Mark!

Flower Power

Over the years, I’ve become increasingly interested in tableware and am toying with starting a new business based on what I like. A botanical prints nut, it’s no surprise that this Rebekah Miles platter in September Vogue caught my eye.

Vanessa Traina’s Essentials

As I’m packing, yet again, I was reminded of this story on Vanessa Traina’s essentials from the September issue of Architectural Digest, which is now helmed by my old friend Amy Astley. I may not be grabbing a red lipstick for the beach, but I did tuck my favorite pillow, cased in D. Porthault, into my bag.

‘Alessandro Michele’s Hot Plates’

Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele collaborated with porcelain maker Richard Ginori on Perroquets, a 12-piece collection of exotic bird embellished plates. I hope they’re not just decorative, they’d be perfect for a summer luncheon.
