DIARY NO 3
Sure, it’s cold outside. We’re staying warm by filling our rooms with the flickering glow of candlelight, swaddling ourselves in cashmere, tucking in, and toasting the stillness of the winter season – preferably with a gin martini in hand.

Kneen & Co: E.R. Butler Biedermeier Candlesticks
Classic European design gets reimagined with these statement-worthy candlesticks. Available in 19 (!!) unique shapes, we’d cluster them together in a collection of three or five and adorn them with natural beeswax tapers.
Susan Deliss: Card Shade
This delightful lampshade completely charms us. The playful pattern! The darling red trim! We think this piece would be especially lovely atop a glazed ceramic lamp base.
Barney’s – Diptyque: Tubereuse Grand Candle
Every home deserves a signature scent and this Tubereuse Grand Candle by Diptyque doesn’t disappoint. The heady scent of spicy-sweet tuberose combined with the beauty of the handcrafted porcelain vessel in which it is presented, is beguiling.
Urban Electric: Chelsea
Pieces like this one, at once traditional and modern, are favorites at JamesThomas. This lantern’s modern, rectangular elements, mixed metals, and bold hook detail would look stunning set above a kitchen island or in an entryway.
Samuel and Sons: Erin Crewel Border
Boasting rich color and a gorgeous pattern this upholstery border is a memorable finishing touch.
Loro Piana: Cashmere Dressing Gown
You will find us wearing this Italian-made baby cashmere dressing gown all winter long. Perfect lounge wear with a bit of polish to it, it’s billed as the finest cashmere in the world.
Ralph Lauren Home: Cable Cashmere Throw Blanket
Is there ever too much cashmere in a home? We think not. This throw is beautiful slung over a favorite chair or couch, and the perfect accessory when an afternoon nap is in order.
Stubbs and Wootton: Abeille Black Slipper
How fun are these bejeweled bee-embroidered slippers? Handcrafted in Spain and leather lined for comfort, these slip-ons are perfect for flitting about the house in style.
Rose Tarlow: Prince Albert Chaise
This simply stylish chaise provides the most wonderfully comfortable spot to read a book or take a nap. It’s rich color and traditional lines make it the perfect addition to any living room.
Century – Thomas 0’Brien: Casper Table
A mahogany table with brass base, such as this one, is best accessorized with an ice-cold gin martini garnished with two olives. Naturally.
