And as always, we MUST have hope.

my 5 favorite
IT’S 5 O’CLOCK EVERY DAY
For the upcoming holiday season, set up a bar in the living room full of your favorite libations and beautiful glasses. Make sure you add little touches like a small vase for flowers, a small pitcher, cocktail napkins, a candle, an ice bucket to make the process of making a drink as easy as possible.
Linen or cotton napkins make any table setting chic and stylish.
Adapt the ritual of lighting candles throughout the house to help elevate your mood during the dark shorter days of winter.
STRIKE A MATCH
Personalize matchbook boxes bought at the hardware store by either wrapping them with interesting colors + patterns pulled from magazines or with beautiful scraps of paper you’ve collected. Display in a glass bowl.
Find a table in your home that is dedicated for puzzles or games. You all will gravitate to this spot. Wooden puzzles for the win.
‘ Style is never static.’
