Workshops by Rita Konig

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.40.46 PMLondon based interior designer, Rita Konig, has design in her blood. She’s the daughter of famed designer, Nina Campbell, yet has established herself as a knowledgable and sought after resource for what to do and where to get it. Rita writes a regular column for House and Garden and is the European editor for the New York Times T Magazine.

In addition to an established residential and commercial design career, Rita has a delightful assortment of her favorite home accessories offered on her website. But, what I really wish I could partake in is one of Rita’s workshops. Typically offered in her London townhouse, but occassionally offered in NYC, Rita spends the day with her guests and walks them through topics such as: lighting plans, paint colors, mixing fabrics, humanizing your bathrooms and where to find all her favorite products.

To see her latest workshop offerings, go here.Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.49.46 PMScreen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.41.13 PM Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.41.57 PM Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 10.42.18 PMHow fun it would be to have tea with Rita, while discussing her favorite paint colors, fabric combos and entertaining hacks! I’ll be waiting for her next workshop in NYC and hope to see you there!

Pretty pink papers. I think I’m in love!

Sarah Silver has created an effortlessly elegant line of stationery and leather goods with her company, StudioSarah, based in London. The leather notepad below sits on my desk, but now that I know you can order personalized stationery from Sarah….I may be adding to my stationery wardrobe. The good thing about stationery is that if you’re writing notes, as we all should, then you do need replenshing!

You can find Sarah’s luxe line at Net-a-Porter, Liberty, Harrods, Colette and many other choice shops. Luckily, you can also order online and they ship world-wide.Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 11.01.01 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 11.01.23 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 11.01.59 PMIMG_0525 Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 11.02.12 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-23 at 11.02.25 PMWouldn’t you love to write your to-do list on something this pretty?

London Fashion Week Treats

London Fashion Week kicks off today and anticipation is high for fashions from Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Markus Lupfer (a personal favorite of mine), Sophia Webster and many, many more!

As a nod to each season’s fashions, the amazing culinary team at The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge create charming confections to celebrate the best in show. 
For Autumn/Winter 2014 the Pret-a-Portea collection played homage to Diane von Furstenberg’s 40th anniversary of the iconic wrap dress with a shimmering golden ginger biscuit. Other fashion favorites included Moschino’s quirky “Yellow M” handbag, Dolce and Gabbana’s whimsical night owl, Valentino’s mini dress and Jimmy Choo’s monochrome chic Cayla zebra print bag.

And, for your viewing enjoyment while you decide which treat you want to nibble on, here is live streaming of London Fashion Week! Just press play! 

Enjoy the shows! And….the weekend!! I wonder which fashions will become confections!
