Like grandmother’s, only better Brighten up your table with pieces from Estelle Colored Glass, which is rolling out new designs (decanters and rocks glasses) in neutral, smoky tones. Handblown in Poland, the collection includes cake stands with clear domes and stemware (wine, martini, coupe and stemless styles). Founder Stephanie Summerson Hall named her business for her grandmother, Estelle, who loved to sleuth out colored glass while antique shopping in small South Carolina towns. Modern with a vintage resonance in their design, the glassware is perfect for special occasions, but we say break them out anytime. Find them at Lawrence’s. Prices range from $27 for the stemless designs and $30 for wine glasses to $85 for a set of the rocks glasses.
Leafy and lovely Gift the adventurous plant lover in your life some pastel-hued beauties: Pink syngonium is a fast-growing indoor plant with dusty-hued leaves. It prefers bright, indirect light, especially if you want the foliage to stay pink. Water every 10 to 14 days. Calathea, with its thin veins of pink, is another low-light lover. It thrives in a high-humidity environment and prefers distilled water. Find them at Grow Plant Shop, or check with your favorite plant emporium.
