Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 25.06.19

PARIS IS HAVING A HEATWAVE and it’s only 13°C here in the English countryside. We call it a British Summer, but London is fine and is nearly as warm as Paris (but not quite). The locals here seem content to wear light jackets even in late June, for everything is lush and green and everywhere there is a fury of roses (our Instagram Stories is filled with them). Of course, there are others who have just decided to wear shorts and tank tops and sandals despite the chilly temperatures, because if not now, when? Here at the office, there has been a flurry of activity and industry these past two weeks and after all the upheaval, it’s good to settle back into work. We have so many things we’d like to share―travel diaries from the past few weeks, shopping lists and things we love at the moment, as well as thoughts on screens and life on screens and everything in between…

This week’s links include the Best Books of 2019 (So Far), silk-charmeuse and baroque pearls; the best Japanese restaurants in London; and wicker and rattan at home; five Vanderbilt-family homes and as always, really great shopping links and more.
