Archives For Christmas

We are once again at the end of one year and on the cusp of a new one. While this is a time for friends, family, and fun, we also find ourselves seeking peace, reflection, and renewal. And we can’t think of a place we’d rather pass that introspective time than in this exquisite sauna overlooking Canada’s Georgian Bay. The 800 square foot Grotto Sauna is a marvel of both natural beauty and interior design, and blends in perfectly with the rocky cliffs that surround it. It was thoughtfully designed by PARTISANS as a commission for an Ontario private residence.

While we certainly can’t all be so fortunate to have a place like this of our own, we hope that at some point during this hectic time of year you are able to find a peaceful place, and take a moment for yourself.

Modern or traditional? Designer or DIY? Wacky and whimsical, or subtle and minimal? Whatever your style, there’s a wreath to match. The New York Times recently went wreath shopping with Kevin Hertzog, a freelance set designer and prop stylist who once worked on Bergdorf Goodman’s famous holiday displays, so he knows a thing or two about wreaths. You’ll find a few of our favorites below. See any that would look good on your door?
