Looking to up your dinner party game? I love Jensen & Marineau’s ceramic tableware. Handmade just outside of Portland, the beautiful simplicity of these pieces and their hand-drawn lines are lovely. Even when your party plans are far off, the versatility of these bowls, dishes and salt cellars is almost limitless: use them to create a lovely table top display, as jewelry catch-alls for a dresser dress-up or give your pet friend the ultimate water bowl.

Jour Blanc

I love these magical Jour Blanc silk scarves designed by London-based designer Angélique Pilière. The scarves are produced in the historical center of silk production in Lyon, France where Chanel, Louis Vuitton and other French fashion houses have their textiles produced. My favorites for fall are the Eclipse scarf, the pink Dolomites scarf and the green Eon. I also love Deep Space scarves and Geode scarves from Angélique’s earlier collection. More HERE.

“The name Jour Blanc refers to a weather condition where the horizon disappears into the sky and all reference points are lost. The visual identity is a graphic representation of this phenomena, based on the reflection of the light and its path.”
