Sit on These Hand Chairs

Go on. Have a seat.

Not every space, every pillow, every object can, or needs, to be in-your-face WOW, right?  A simple color scheme, interesting seating with a few original and unlikely pieces can really make a space.  Hand chairs, anyone?

It's about the swatch-filled journey, not the destination.

Very few women I know, myself included, have found the holy grail that is their individual perfect lipstick.  It’s damn near impossible, there’s really no other way to put it. But in expeditions to Duane Reade, scrounging through the aisles of Target, and sampling the goods at Sephora, you may…

In an editorial entitled Light Brigade, that is styled by Grace Coddington and featuring…
