My New Favorite

Do you have a favorite living room - an image from a magazine that you’ve keep in a folder for years and years? I do. And recently, I’ve realized I have a new favorite that I want to share with you. I started writing this story a few days ago and as it grew, the road to the end twisted and turned and took me to places I never intended to go.

A Folly: Don’t Ever Change

My Dining Room The other day, a friend asked why I had never changed my look? Didn’t I know that big slipcovers were out of style? Didn’t I want to try something new, like Belgian Design (well excuse me, but I’ve yet to see a Belgian house without a slipcover, but I digress.) Her point was, I was stuck in my own aesthetic.

Haus and Home

Zeitgeist is a German word literally meaning "spirit of the time," and refers to the taste, outlook, and spirit characteristic of a period or generation. NYC based Zeitgeist Gifts search for unique items that fit into a contemporary lifestyle and reflect products of today.

I definitely love some of these gift items for co-workers, elephant gifts or just…
