My Madewell chambray shirt is my most treasured garment, so it’s no surprise I became equally enamored with these linens from Teraforma’s new Chambray Collection. With their subtle and slightly textured denim blue and white cotton weave, the placemats, runners, napkins and cocktail coasters are easy on the eyes and soft to the touch.

This week on a photoshoot I fell in love with a painting. It was by an artist who you’ve actually seen in interiors in our pages before named Kerri Rosenthal from Connecticut. Deconstructed yet tight and in a wash of whites and blues it was one of those pieces that could immediately elevate a room. She has a number of works on her site Art KR Home, to give you an idea.

I have long loved and lusted after all things Vietri. There’s no question that the purveyor of handcrafted Italian dinnerware has evolved over the years; its offerings go well beyond singularly beautiful dishes and now include linens, flatware … even lamps. But the dishes still own my heart! My latest passions include Incanto Aqua paired with Incanto White (a marriage made in heaven); Fantasia in Orange; the very fun Lastra Fish pattern; and the hand-thrown terra cotta Sorbetto in Aqua, again (Sorbetto is also available in Lime and Pistachio). Visit vietri.com and fall in love yourself.
