Welcome to The Glam Pad’s first edition of TGP Tidbits where we round up the happenings and musings relevant to the design industry each week…
Sarah Flint and Gracie have collaborated to create a match made in heaven…. the Sarah Flint x Gracie collection of shoes showcasing exquisite Chinoiserie patterns from Gracie. There are four styles and two colors available: gold and peacock. Shop quickly, because these are selling FAST!
Kimberly Schlegel Whitman unveiled her new partnership with Dillard’s this week. To no surprise, we would like one of everything. This collection boasts classically feminine silhouettes in stunning floral prints and springy hues for women and girls. Just in time for the warming weather!
If that was not stellar enough, Kimberly also launched her latest book with co-author Shelley Johnstone, A Loving Table: Creating Memorable Gatherings. If the stunning Shocking Pink cover doesn’t draw you in, the contents certainly will! Stay tuned for our review.
Mark Sikes’ new partnership with Anthropologie has been on our mind all week! With festive gatherings of friends and family on the horizon we are clamoring for new tableware and décor to spruce up the home. Mark’s collection packs a punch while remaining true to his stylistic roots.
Hosted by the Cultural Counselor of the French Embassy and Galerie Kugel, Villa Albertine presents Tastemakers: The 18th Century French Luxury Market and the Global Art Trade. On view from May 4th – May 8th in the historic Payne Whitney Mansion located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the exhibit features 18th Century treasures unlike any other.
The Annual Park Cities Preservation Home Tour 2022 kicked off on May 2 with a bang. Offering a glimpse into some of the most beautiful homes, the event works to support the preservation of neighborhoods in the Park Cities area. From small cottages to larger estates, the annual home tour shares common value with The Glam Pad: appreciation of history, tradition, and beauty. The tour is online only and is in full swing May 2 – 8. Click here to learn more and purchase a ticket… with the online format, you can join the tour from anywhere in the world!
We could not report on the first week of May without including The Met Gala. Much too our dismay, we were rather disappointed in this year’s red-carpet assemblage. Une terrible misère! Check out the video below for a recap of the good, bad, and ugly.
