This spring, I’m filling my world with uplifting color and objects that nourish the spirit and the senses.

Paris-based online store La Romaine Editions features the most gorgeous craftsmanship, usable art and modern heirlooms. With two annual collections that pay homage to a color, mood or season, it is a source of endless beauty and inspiration for me. Think romantic hand-embroidered textiles, unique objects and covetable flatware. You can even shop by the table set. Want the mood all perfectly Parisian for your guests? They’ll curate it for you. Their beautiful Les Fleurs En Papier collection is holding me over until the flowers start to bloom!

Field Recordings winemaker Andrew Jones is known for producing unusual and soulful wines along California’s Central Coast. Over the past few years, his catalog has become my go-to source for top-quality pours. I love bringing Skins, a crisp orange, and my newest favorite, Super Gnario, a confident red blend, to dinner parties.

New Orleans–based Sunday Shop offers a treasure trove of rare antiques and contemporary finds alike. My latest obsession? The Betty Sofa, upholstered in blush mohair velvet. Bench-made in small production between Los Angeles and North Carolina, this perfectly feminine yet playful sofa comes complete with an exquisite bullion fringe skirt.

French-American designer Sophie Lou Jacobsen’s unique houseware and glassware embrace the notion that objects have the power to elevate the everyday. Her new Bouquet Collection — five elegant pieces of stemware made of sturdy borosilicate glass — is specifically crafted to enhance a drink’s aromatics with a delicate brim that fans out like a flower.

Nette founder Carol Han Pyle set out to disrupt the candle industry by offering a sustainable, clean-burning alternative. The brand’s signature handmade ceramic vessels contain a non-toxic coconut/soy wax blend (and zero synthetic ingredients) and use first-to-market certified organic cotton wicks. Adding to the charm, Carol inscribes evocative poetry on every label. Twelfth Night, one of my favorite candles in the line, boasts an expansive throw sufficient to permeate a large room.

My very best,
