DES KOHAN | GARLAND COLLECTION EVENT!

As you all know, I’m the life of every party. I mean, you should have seen me in my Studio 54 days. (I may or may not have been a Factory Girl.)  Anywhoo…Velvet rope?  Please!  I’m a VIP (Very Important Pooch). My “Aha Moment” happened at the Legends Ball. Right, Gayle?

So, as the official, unofficial spokesdog of Garland Collection, I invite you to an event that rivals Woodstock. (Did you know that I invented the peace sign?)  Free love all around…for decadent jewelry and  stunning objects.

Just a friendly reminder: these jewels are vintage and often one-of-a-kind, so get ‘em while they’re haute. And don’t forget, whatever Lola wants, Lola gets and that arrow collar is mine!

Love and Licks,

Lola

IT’S THE THOUGHT THAT COUNTS + A GIFT GUIDE

I come from a family of indecision. There are no choices, whether life altering or seemingly inconsequential, that do not incite evaluation, pontification, or self-analysis and reflection. What color to paint the living room walls requires a jury. Family, friends, … Continue reading

School Daze

No matter how old I get, I always love the collegiate look. Flattering on everyone, blazers and signet rings just do it for me. Plus, this time of year, a wardrobe of standout, transitional pieces for layering and accessorizing is an easy way to manage the finicky change of seasons.

Here are a few go-tos to make the grade…

TABLE SETTINGS & SOUP: MATTERS OF TASTE

I love Thanksgiving. Being together with family for gratitude and good food gives the day such a feeling of warmth. Plus, it’s the kickoff to the holiday season — weeks of family, friends, parties, decorating, cooking, and hosting. Cooking delicious … Continue reading

THE OUTLAW GETS A NURSERY

“I wanna baby, I wanna baby, I wanna baby!,” my mother-in-law squealed at the top of her lungs as we stood outside a Los Angeles restaurant late one Saturday night four years ago. “So get knocked up,” I responded placidly, … Continue reading

Oh, Lola!: Garland Collects Maison launches on One Kings Lane!

As the official, unofficial spokesdog for Garland Collection, I have news!

Garland Collects Maison, Garland Collection’s carefully curated selection of vintage and antique home décor, serving pieces and custom designed pillows, will now offer a selection of stellar pieces on the fabulous site One Kings Lane (http://www.onekingslane.com/shop/garlandcollection).

I’m a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel myself (Yes, I am the first female king – little’ ol me, just breakin’ boundaries), and as fellow royalty (Some people call me “The People’s Princess,” whatever that means), I can assure my faithful subjects that Garland’s carefully chosen pieces are sought after for the chicest cottages and swankiest castles…mine may or may not be somewhere in the vicinity of Gstaad. Found it on my semester abroad.

So I’m giving you fair warning…whatever Lola wants, Lola gets…and that Pineapple Sconce is mine!

Love and Licks,

Lola

P.S. The pieces are being rolled out slowly (I do love a red carpet!), so check back often.

CHIEF OF CHIC

From vintage rugs to Garland Collects silver statement rings, the Navajo look is one of our favorites. Like this tipi that I decorated for Sweetlips and The Bean with unique dream catchers and crafts found on Etsy, here is a peak at some of our go-to’s…
