Farrow & Ball, Jo Malone & am New York

I'm excited to tell you about a wonderful collaboration between two of my favorite British companies-Farrow & Ball and Jo Malone. Farrow & Ball, my top paint and wallpaper manufacturer and perfumer extraordinaire Jo Malone have joined to launch their first collection of colored candles. Each candle scent is paired with an intrinsically linked color. My favorite is Jo Malone's signature scent of Lime Basil & Mandarin that I have been addicted to since first finding it in London. It is an incredible combination of fresh limes, zesty mandarins, peppery basil, and white thyme. It has been paired with Farrow & Ball's Breakfast Room Green. Above is the candle in my kitchen. Below is the full collection. For inspiration, I have shown each candle below with an example of a Chinoiserie tablescape where it would be perfect. Find your own limited edition candle at Farrow & Ball showrooms, Jo Malone boutiques, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Then create your own Chinoiserie vignette.

Also, I hope you will check out an an article running today on page 15 of the print and online version of am New York where I am interviewed about Chinoiserie and Chinoiserie screens. It has some wonderful sources for well priced versions.
