Worthy Links: Moving Day • Sally King Benedict's Home via @SavvyHome

Tonight is the last night at my old apartment—and I’m so ready! Moving day starts tomorrow at 9am and I’m eager to unpack and getting set up in my new place. I’m also tracking FedEx numbers like a mad-woman—so many gorgeous items are making their way to my new place as we speak. I can’t wait to reveal this new space with you all when it’s all done and decorated. It’s going to be a good one!

I’m having a few girlfriends over for the unpacking fest tomorrow—I’ll be serving pizza on paper plates and champagne in plastic cups. #chic

21 Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Modern Gent

21 Valentine's Day Gifts for the Modern Gent • on @SavvyHome

 

From Baxter of California grooming kits to Vilebrequin swimsuits, here are 21 thoughtful Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Modern Gent. Home Depot gift cards not allowed.

 

 

There’s no need to spend a fortune on Valentine’s Day gifts (but no one’s going to stop you if you do). V-Day is the perfect occasion to spend quality time with that special someone, and plan something out of the ordinary, like a weekend getaway or a wine tasting class.

My favorite gifts are the meaningful ones that celebrate those special moments. It can be as simple as getting him a quirky luggage tag if you’re jetting off somewhere; or a nice key ring if you’re shacking up. But, if you want to splurge on something extra special for him, a pair or driving mocs before a weekend road trip; or a piece of original art if you’re buying a house can also do the trick.

Jenni Kayne is a girl wise beyond her years. At barely thirty, her eponymous fashion line is a smashing success (she opened her third store last fall), she’s a mother of two and has already undertook a major remodel of her 4,000-square-foot house in the Beverly Hills flats with her husband—realtor Richard Ehrlich. And that’s without mentioning her Lake Tahoe house which is the picture perfect definition of weekend getaway and she throws a holiday party like no other. Accomplished much? Talk about a reality check: yikes, I barely have two (three?) years to catch up!

Kayne was drawn to the house for its tall hedges and generous proportions. Her exemplary sense of style and attention to detail led her to turn a cold 80s architectural home into a warm and comfortable family oasis with the help of architect Jeffrey Allsbrook of Standard LA. To warm up the space, purchased reclaimed wood from an Amish barn in Pensylvania—which she then used to create kitchen counters, ceiling beams and wall panelling. She used furnishings in warm natural organic tones with lots of textures. As for all the white upholstery: “I just have my eco Scotchgard person come, like, once every couple of months. Everything just wipes off. You’ve got to try it.”

Gab Loves: Tropical Getaway

Gab Loves: Tropical Getaway

I just booked my plane tickets for a family trip to Martinique in March, so I’ve got my tropical getaway on the brain today. Winter has been so brutally cold for the past couple of weeks that all I can do is anticipate being dressed in breezy lemlem beachwear—toes in the sand—and sipping on a refreshing bevvy. Lazy beach getaways really are the best family trips.

We don’t always agree on restaurants and activities when travelling to big cities (when there’s 3-4 generations under one roof, we all tend to want different things). But that’s a non-existent problem when all you want to achieve in a day is to lounge by the pool, cook amazing meals, play a few rounds of backgammon and unwind (à-la The Vacationers minus the drama). March 15th, you can’t come soon enough.
