I love rainy days. I love lying in bed and listening to the rain on the skylights. When I was a child, we would visit our grandparents in North Carolina and the rain would make the most beautiful music on their old tin roof. I’ve always been enchanted with days like these. The weight of the air, the dampness on our skin, how we can get caught in it and sometimes even make memories that will last forever.
At the studio now we make Americanos and pull up our rainy day playlist, the sounds that echo through Ann Street Studio on days just like today in New York. The music fills my soul when I look out the window at the beautiful simplicity of water falling and washing away all our yesterdays.
In the studio, these are a few of my favorite things: Restoration Hardware Gramophone / Nest three-wick candle in Grapefruit / Peter Lindbergh Images of Women / Vogue The Editor’s Eye / Pineapple glass lamp from Savannah, GA (Pineapples represent hospitality!) / View Camera (for things like THIS) / GRACE: Thirty Years of Fashion at Vogue / Leather Journal from Florence / Book magnifying glass from a visit to the FRICK / Handmade pottery coffee mug from here in the East Village / Irving Penn’s Passage
I hope you enjoy our list and please, we would love recommendations of songs to add! As in life, this list should forever be evolving… here’s to rainy days.
