Our days are punctuated by scouting new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.
Overstay Your Welcome: The Pinch
Charleston, South Carolina’s palmetto-lined streets and pastel Victorians could easily charm you to extend your stay beyond a weekend. And where better to do that than at The Pinch? The 25-room boutique hotel, which opened earlier this spring, is the collaborative creation of Method Co. and Morris Adjmi Architects, offering all the creature comforts of home but with a luxe, tactile twist—think: brass DeVol fixtures, walnut countertops, and floral wallpaper courtesy of Lewis and Wood. I could go on and on about the unique suites (which you can reserve for 30-plus nights at a time), but trust me when I say they’re so good you’ll wish you booked a trip yesterday. Or perhaps wait until later this fall, when the 750-square-foot private penthouse finally opens. —Morgan Bulman, associate commerce editor
Blast From the Past: Pierce & Ward x House of Hackney
In House of Hackney’s new series, Fantasy Room, the maximalist brand is inviting industry pros to reach back into the House archives and reimagine wallpaper and fabric patterns with their own creative spin. First up: Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward of Los Angeles–based Pierce & Ward. (Psst: Ward’s home was on our most recent Domino cover!) The design duo took the whimsical Phantasia print, inspired by British gardens and wild beasts, and gave it a California-cool touch with a tone-on-tone colorway punctuated by stripes and polka dots. I’m looking forward to seeing who brings us back to the future next. —Raven McMillan, assistant editor
Cocktail Hour for Everyone: Wilderton Bittersweet Aperitivo
My husband and I—avid cooks—host dinners regularly, whether that’s just for one person (usually my best friend; usually we make fresh pasta) or large groups (we have a regular Shabbat rotation). There’s a mix of beverage preferences among our regular crew, and I always like to have something on hand for everyone, including those who don’t drink alcohol. Most of the time we stock Ghia, in a number of forms, but I was recently gifted a bottle of Wilderton’s new nonalcoholic Bittersweet Aperitivo and was enamored at first sip. It has all the qualities of Campari that I love (aromatic, herbal, bitter) without the booze. I’ve been pouring it long with Q Tonic, like an Americano, to have while I cook, or on its own with a big ice cube at the end of the night. —Samantha Weiss-Hills, deputy commerce editor
Coming Up Roses: The Green Vase x St. Regis New York
If you’re in Manhattan this weekend, you’ve officially got plans. The St. Regis New York has teamed up with master paper flower creator Livia Cetti of the Green Vase to create a tissue-paper take on the American Beauty Rose—the favorite flower of the hotel’s founding patron and fixture of New York’s Gilded Age society, Caroline Astor. Through Sunday, September 11, a pop-up (paper) flower shop in the famous Cognac Room will offer an abundance of these handmade blossoms, among others, plus a floral-inspired tea service. —Naomi deMañana, style director
Falling for You: Joss & Main’s All-New Fall Edit
As soon as September arrives, my mind is tunnel vision to fall. I light my favorite smoke- and sandalwood-scented candles, switch out summer florals for fresh foliage, and, of course, start a marathon of Meg Ryan movies. But embracing the seasonal shift in a bigger design moment can veer cheesy fast—or so I thought, until I spotted Joss & Main’s new Fall Edit. The collection, which consists of five home trends identified by the company’s in-house style team, offers a subtle but chic approach to autumnal decor, with woven walnut accent chairs, textured terracotta vessels, and more statement pieces I’d leave out year-round. —Hannah Chambley, associate editor, Creative Studio
Hole in One: Original BTC x Beata Heuman
If there’s one thing that will never leave my wish list, it’s Beata Heuman’s whimsical (yet often custom) creations for her clients. Lucky for me, though, the interior designer recently teamed up with lighting brand Original BTC on her own line, the Alma collection, for anyone to snap up. Crafted from ceramic and brass, the floor and table lamps can twist and turn to focus exactly where you need them. Little perforations in each shade ensure the rest of your space isn’t left in the dark. The only good thing about the upcoming cold, gray weather is the chance to bask in the glow of one of these beauties. —Kate McGregor, associate design editor
