angéle parlange– person to know in NOLA

 

In life there are very few people who open your eyes to a certain way of thinking/ being– and my good friend Angéle is one of those.  Everything about her has always inspired me: her clever wit/ eye/ speak… I marveled at the way she collected + reinterpreted, as well as her ability transform the mundane on a vanity/ bar cart/ bedside table/ dining table.

Angéle is a true Creole/ Francophile at heart: she grew up living on one of the South’s most pure + beautiful plantations called Parlange– complete with a guest house that once served as a pigonere; she is also a descendant of Sergeant’s Madame X… Today is she one of the great tastemakers/ designers and much of her work was inspired by the Salon of Paris in 19th century, where her grandmother held court. When we met 15 years ago, she had her own shop/ Salon on Magazine Street in New Orleans, filled with treasures/ curiosities/ wild inspirations.  It inspired me to open up my very own Salon, on the west coast!

Recently she published a book called Creole Thrift sharing life as she sees it.

uber comes to the napa valley

Ladies and gentlemen, keep your ears peeled over the next few months, as you will be hearing a lot about UBER– a San Francisco car service that has revolutionized the way people live and get around.  Operating much like private town car service, UBER town cars are at-the-ready on a moment’s notice, without charging an hourly minimum– and charge slightly more than a taxi would…

In a valley chock full of DUI check points + wine enthusiasts on the roads, this service will be a Godsend for all!

The genius thing about UBER is that you join the service with your credit card online, and never see a bill or receipt until it is sent to your email.  Finding a car is done via text or app, and is painless.

To learn more + set up your account, check out: UBER.com

Stay tuned for more…

ira’s studio: the perfect winter afternoon excursion

Visiting Ira’s studio is always on my short-list of things to do for out-of-towners– regardless of season.  It is a dreamy snapshot to the colorful world of Napa Valley:  unexpected, infectious, and inspiring.  A vision that is specific to time + place.

Of all the eccentric genres + subjects Ira paints, his Wappo Indians are my favorites… they are poetic, mystical, and deeply powerful.
