One of our most fun assignments is compiling our annual holiday gift guides. Here are some pretty things that caught our eye (and may even wind up on our own gift lists — can’t neglect Ms. Santa!)
Wouldn’t this wide silver cuff look great with a Little Black Dress? Splash on a little Chanel No. 5, and you’re good to go.
Sapphire Daisy Wide Cuff, $795;
Daisy Ring with Sapphire Accents, $268
We’re also smitten with these super-stylish True Bee Design Crown Storage Ottomans that serve as a footrest, storage, extra seating, and tabletop. Check out this video to see it in action. Delivery takes 8 weeks, but you can also buy your favorite design-obsessed giftee a gift card. There are several styles to choose among, including Blue Arbez, $3,070, and Tullulah, $3,100, shown here.

She’s worth splurging on, so consider this striking Betty Necklace, sterling silver and rock crystal, hand-made to order. You need to allow 4-5 weeks for delivery, but give her an image of it, and she’ll find it worth waiting for.
The Betty Rock Cyrstal Necklace by Lisa Jenks, $1,630
Baby, it’s cold outside! Cheery Giesswein women’s Enns slippers with a bright bird and flower motif will warm her up at $95.95. The boiled wool no-skid slippers are known for providing warmth, moisture wicking, comfort, and stability. (And they accommodate orthotics).

We are very excited to be collaborating with Lonny magazine founders Michelle Adams and Patrick Cline on our online-only edition which will feature totally original content. So we were thrilled when some of the top design bloggers were able to join us for a dinner last week where we introduced our 20 New Traditionals – the fabulous interior designers to watch in 2011 – who are being featured in Trad Home‘s inaugural issue which will be live April 12th.
We had fun celebrating the upcoming launch, especially with such a well-dressed, design-loving crowd! So, a very big thank you to our blogger friends and congratulations to the interior designers selected as our 20 New Traditionals!
Here are some pictures from our dinner at Freeman’s on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Enjoy!
