How does a single item alter so much? Wearing beauty or having it within view can change the mood of any environment. Maybe you are aware of these artisans; perhaps you need to be reminded? Everything you see in this collection, I want to be mine. I think when you see these pieces and meet the artists, you'll like them to be yours too.

I always travel with a few precious possessions. A silk pillowcase to lay my head upon at night. A bottle of perfume, so I feel properly “dressed.” And a couple of candles. There is nothing more powerful than changing the scent of a room; it transforms any hotel room into a home.

At the Montage gift shop in Laguna Beach, I discovered Melanie Apple’s Voyage et Cie collection of candles about a decade before creating In the Style of Jane. You can find candles everywhere, but what drew me to these was Melanie’s great nose. A lot of her time has been spent getting to know Paris intimately and she has this incredible ability to capture the unique energy and beauty of its arrondissements through scent.

A candle lives and breathes. I’m instantly transported to leafy boulevards and ancient laneways, my fingers running lightly over delicate details carved into stone. I inhale the cascading blooms framing an archway and see the way light plays upon a cobblestone street. I just adore the romance of this!

Finding artists to collaborate with feels a bit like being an explorer. I invite you to discover the distinct way Voyage et Cie brings a sense of worldliness and adventure into your home - or wherever you may roam. I hope they give you the same joy and comfort they’ve given to me.

At home, I'm barefoot. As I walk room to room, I note my rug's diverse textures under my feet. They make the ordinary act of walking a small joy. The feel of “oh! I love this!”

I strive to see and experience beauty from large to small moments every day. When I met Christiane Millinger at a Portland Art Museum gathering, we both realized our philosophies on beauty were mutual. So much of what I love to procure for Jane's Vanity is tactile; silks, lace, and cashmere. We share this adoration of fine textures and artistry—the unique magnificence of a delicate hand-stitched textile.

I never considered the art of rugs before meeting Christiane. I was unaware of the layers of history, texture, and beauty that a piece may possess. It comes to life. You're drawn into the complexities of fabric, touch, color combinations and the discord that lives within the harmony. As you touch its texture, with fingers or toes, you can feel a rug's history—its intention of creation. It pulls you. As I’ve learned, when you purchase your rug, you may find it an emotional experience.

After years of friendship and sharing our obsessions with each other, it's time to share them with you. If you’re unfamiliar, I would like to introduce you to Christiane Millinger and her rich expertise and knowing eye for beauty and history. Here is our procured collection of incredible handmade rugs from Christiane Millinger.

West 3rd Street in Los Angeles is filled with little discoveries of vibrancy and things to love. My colleague and collaborator, Emily Tate, and I were not only shopping for ourselves but for partners to hold an event with. We seek out small producers that personally involve themselves in every aspect of their art and design.

We came across a dark Gothic building that stood out from its neighbors' bright white and jewel tones. I seemed to be gravitating to a snakeskin backpack in the display window. No choice was allowed; we had to go into Elisabeth Weinstock's store. It was a great little shop; every piece unique and magnificent. More than just backpacks and purses, there were boxing gloves, baseball bats and home decor all gloriously wrapped in the elegance of exotic leathers. I particularly remember being enamored by this tall exotic jewelry box with eight slender drawers wrapped in emerald green leather. Gorgeous.

I walked out of her store with two things that day. First, a black snakeskin backpack that travels the world with me. Second, the intent to share these amazing pieces with you. You may not have known about Elisabeth Weinstock. It is a great pleasure for me to introduce you to her vision and talent with this curated collection.
