Calypso Home St. Barth
At Calypso Home it's all about layering, says Jennifer Lubner, who manages the store at the Plaza in Preston Center. Known for the breezy, luxurious accessories that inspire its island name, Calypso Home St. Barth has brought in new hides from France (some with incredible silver leafing, and others in unexpected jewel tones like emerald, or with delicate laser-cut patterns), which Lubner has layered over patterned, woven rugs. Fur, ostrich, Tibetan goatskin, and tie-dyed silk pillows are piled everywhere. These glamorous pieces are designed to liven up traditional rooms -- the kind found in many Park Cities homes where their core customers live, she says. "Emerald and oxblood are great colors to layer in traditional interiors," she adds. "And it's fun to layer in something with a bit of contemporary edge to elevate the room."

New at Vintage Living
At Vintage Living owner Lisa Luby Ryan opened a new design room in January inside the stylish store known for its pale French antiques and crystal chandeliers. Ryan, who just got back from a buying trip to Paris, erected two sets of antique glass doors inside Vintage Living to create an airy, chic space to meet with clients and go over their interior design projects. In the past, Ryan had to usher them into a cramped back room. In the design room, everything has its place, including metal bins with fabric samples and bins labeled with the names of clients -- some of the most recognized names in the city. Ryan had to put up signs to keep the general public out after some people were discovered rifling through the bins taking pictures and making notes (wasn't me, promise). It's such a beautiful work room, who wouldn't be inspired to go in and steal ideas?
