Valentino Resort 2017 + Ratti for J.Crew

01-valentino-resort-2017

Tropical prints are everywhere this summer and Valentino‘s 2017 resort collection was no exception. Inspired by Cuba, I can’t get enough of the flirty, feminine ensembles (note the white Ginger Lilies, Cuba’s national flower). Valentino’s tropical theme reminds me of J.Crew’s colorful new collaboration with Ratti, a brand based in Como, Italy. Below are some of my favorite looks from both collections. Looking to add some Valentino to your own wardrobe? Net-A-Porter is having a huge sale. The J.Crew x Ratti pieces can be found here.

For those interested, you can donate to support the victims’ heartbroken families here and find details on writing your local elected official about supporting gun control legislation here.

Bar Palladio in Jaipur, India

I’m dying to get to India and all the recent publicity for Jaipur’s stunning Bar Palladio isn’t helping to soothe my wanderlust. Located in the gardens of the Narain Niwas Palace Hotel, every detail of the dreamy space was conceptualized by Dutch designer Marie-Anne Oudejans. Inspired by the old school glamour of Caffé Florian and Harry’s Bar in Venice (the cuisine is Italian…), the opulent setting includes mango trees, tented canopies, and wandering peacocks. Added to my bucket list!

When I stumbled upon these photos of Edie Parker founder Brett Heyman’s home I immediately wanted to cover my walls in dark green paint. Published on One Kings Lane, the accessories designer’s Connecticut country retreat is an artful balance of bold statements (the dining room!) and subtle neutrals (the master bedroom!). The property was previously published by Architectural Digest (I’ve included some images here) and on the website of their talented interior designer, Mark Cunningham. Head this way to explore One Kings Lane’s suggestions for channeling a similar look in your own home. The living room above is one of my new favorite spaces—I’m taking notes!
