How-To Host Like a Lonny Editor

Some of our favorite nights are ones with friends in the comfort of our home, where we can be completely and totally ourselves.  However, after a long week, having people over can feel like a daunting task.  Hearing our latest tastemaker, Lonny Style Editor, Sarah Storms, chat about her love for bringing people together in her space pumped us up to do the same.

Tips for Colorful Entertaining from Lonny’s Style Editor

When I first met Sarah Storms, Style Editor of Lonny Magazine, on a chilly and hectic Tuesday night, she was clad in coral and smiles.  So its no surprise that when she hosted a cocktail hour with her favorite Zola products in her home in Fort Greene, she created an oasis of color and warmth. Sarah’s style is crisp whites with bold pops of color, reminiscent of our Georgetown collection. As she assembled her tastemaker collection, launching today on Zola, she leaned toward textured whites mixed with patterned bold blues and violets.  She rounded out the collection with clean, modern interpretations of old world pieces like these Read More

In the Studio with Lisa Vorce

3 New Ways to Style with Floral

We love a simple bloom in a clear glass vase, but these days a few of our tastemakers have inspired us to try a little something different with seasonal blooms.  A couple things to try the next time you want to dress up your table: 1. Once Wed styled ice cubes with a burst of color.  They simply dropped the petals into the water and froze. 2. Jess Levin from Carats & Cake put a sprig of something fresh on her Canvas Home Dauville salad plate.  She chose rosemary, but we also love the look of lavender or sage. Do you Read More
