Prance In, Trance Out
Private space is a private pleasure. And getting it right is its own reward. Set aside an afternoon to fine-tune. Add a few little lifestyle necessities. Jane’s Vanity has suggestions. Then lie back and enjoy.
First, set the stage for “staging.” You’ll want to look the part. Tousle your hair, arch your brows, line your eyes with a little flick. Then, for prancing around, don the Kitty Marabou Silk Pajama in fuchsia with ¾ sleeves (trimmed in feathers) and cropped trouser. Music is a must. Maybe Amy Winehouse, whom we miss.
After some artful boudoir sprucing, you can alphabetize your Agatha Christies and repurpose your jewelry (hint: connect three charm bracelets to make a necklace). Now you’re ready to, “In the Style of Jane,” give your space and yourself a lifestyle lift.
Begin with scent. Jane brings you the world of Voyage et Cie by Melanie Apple. Each scent is a destination, inspired by its unique habitat. Be transported to Parcs de Paris with a Ceramic Candle or choose a selection of votives, either Spring (Bali Gardenia, Provence Jasmine, or Roma Tuberose) or Winter (St. Tropez Feu de Bois, Val D'Isère Les Pinèdes, Charlevoix Noël). Many more possibilities to explore, including oils, parfums, sachets, and tea. Wonderful gifts for the holidays.
Let accessories designer Elisabeth Weinstock add color to your world with exotic leather goods. We love the Quebec Travel Valet, a flat 8” x 8” tray that unfolds to attractively display your treasures. It is also a favorite for laying out one’s morning make-up, at home or hotel. Colors include Emerald, Cherry, Electric Blue, Fuchsia, and Navy.
A creative afternoon is a meditation. You and your environment are both refreshed by it. So, light the candle and let the mood overtake you. A happy evening awaits, “In the Style of Jane.”
