Caitlin Wilson’s Return to Pretty, Matouk for Schumacher, and The 11th Annual Addison Mizner Awards

Welcome to TGP Tidbits where we round up the happenings and our musings of the design industry each week. This week we look at Caitlin Wilson’s soon-to-be released book, Return to Pretty, Matouk’s latest collection with Schumacher, and The 11th Annual Addison Mizner Awards. Written by Natalie Aldridge.

Caitlin Wilson’s Return to Pretty

Caitlin Wilson, an early advocate of the “grandmillennial” aesthetic, will be releasing her first-ever book, Return to Pretty: Giving New Life to Traditional Style, on April 18th. Wilson’s fresh take on traditional style, replete with flowery patterns and vintage charm, makes for homes that are not only visually pleasing but comfortable, delightful, and timeless.

Return to Pretty chronicles how Wilson’s style has evolved to shape her design principles, her family abode, and her signature brand and design studio. Emphasizing the significance of home, fashion, and family, her approach to creating gorgeous interiors is about attaining an effortless and sophisticated aesthetic, while designing spaces that are easy to maintain yet retain a luxurious appeal.

“I am incredibly proud to be launching my first book,” says Wilson. “This book will teach anyone how to add some pretty to their home and inspire readers to embrace an aesthetic that celebrates classic and traditional yet fresh style. It’s been a beautiful journey two years in the making and I hope readers will love this book as much as I enjoyed creating it.” 

Starting with New York on April 18th, Wilson will begin her grand tour around the country popping up with book signings. A complete schedule of her visits can be found here. Be sure to stop in and say hello! Return to Pretty can be pre-ordered here

Matouk for Schumacher

Since launching in 2020, the Matouk collection for Schumacher collection of bedding, bath, and beach essentials has been a hit TGP cannot get over. Just in time for a Spring refresh, Schumacher has unveiled a new array of exquisite designs including lively bedding, plush beach towels, elegant tissue box covers, and sleek shower curtains.

These new additions to the line offer sophistication, old-school glamour, and a fun way to bring life into linens. Take a look!

The 11th Annual Addison Mizner Awards

On April 15th, the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art Florida Chapter will celebrate the annual Addison Mizner Awards in Palm Beach, FL. In 2012, the ICAA  Florida Chapter initiated the prestigious program and awards to honor new creations that epitomize classical design principles in the image of Mizner’s work. The awards commemorate the triumph of brilliance in the domains of Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Urbanism, Craftsmanship, and allied arts, all creative facets deeply cherished by The Glam Pad.

The Addison Mizner Awards derive their name from the legendary architect, Addison Mizner, who set the benchmarks of excellence in the composition and skill of classical and traditional designs during the formative stages of urban expansion in Florida, particularly in Palm Beach. Mizner’s innovation of the Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean style has etched an everlasting imprint on the architectural and cultural heritage of Florida.

The awards will take place at the iconic pink palace, The Colony Hotel. We cannot wait to see who the deserving recipients will be!

  1. I’ve been saying that nothing pretty has been available in decor and fashion for the last several decades. The husband and wife team on HGTV seemed to erase the decor part single handedly with their blah and boring look that offered only one repetitive look. Hurray for the return of pretty, feminine, unique, and mostly HAPPY rooms that actually lift you up just by being in them!

    • My mom and I have have felt so discouraged for so long each time wanting to redecorate a room and finding like you said “nothing pretty.”
      I t would be nice someday to get lost in the florals and fauna, cheery colors and feminine prints that used to fill our local fabric shop.
